GOP Lawmaker Responds to Epstein Docs with Bill Mandating Death Penalty for Pedophiles

Republican State Rep. Stefani Lord introduced a new bill that would require the death penalty for anyone convicted of sex crimes after she viewed the explosive Jeffery Epstein documents.

Lord said the introduction of HB 109 came after she realized the full extent of the sex trafficking empire, as outlined in the recently released Epstein documents.

The lawmaker also noted that Epstein had connections to New Mexico with property in the state that was identified as the site of sexual abuse.

Further, former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson was named in the Epstein trove of documents.

The documents contained an allegation that Richardson received a massage from one of Epstein’s victims.

“When I got elected, I was horrified that every time the legislature tried to pass a soft-on-crime bill, I would say, ‘Well, can we exempt pedophiles and rapists?’ And every time the Democrats said no,” Lord told Fox News.

“I was horrified, so I went back and said, ‘You know what? There is no cure for pedophilia. There’s no cure for these rapists,” she said.

“So we might as well do like Florida did and give them the death penalty,'” she said.

Under Lord’s bill, those convicted of first-degree felony for aggravated criminal sexual penetration and first-degree felony for criminal penetration of children would be automatic death penalty cases.

Anyone convicted of a first-degree felony for child sex trafficking would also automatically get the death penalty under the new bill.

The bill also proposes to raise the age under which children are protected from 13 to 18.

“There is no life. There’s no option for life in prison. You rape a child that is under 18, then you get the death penalty,” Lord said.

However, Lord acknowledged the bill might see an uphill battle.

“I would gladly hand this bill over to a Democrat if they could get this passed. I have no problem with that,” she said.

“I don’t need to take credit for it. The issue is we need to stop the sex trafficking.”

“We need to stop that. There’s so much leniency against pedophiles and people that rape children. This needs to stop,” she said.

“We have to draw the line. We have to draw a line in the sand and say enough is enough. If you do this, you’re going to get the death penalty,” Lord said.
