California State Senator Leland Yee (D – San Francisco), the man behind the original legislation that’s now made its way to the Supreme Court, has offered his thoughts on SCOTUS nominee Elena Kagan.
Noting that Kagan has “argued for very limited exemptions to the First Amendment including areas of hate speech, pornography, military recruitment, and animal cruelty,” Lee said of the nominee:
I commend President Obama on the selection of Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court. Ms. Kagan is well-qualified for this important post and should be immediately confirmed by the US Senate. While championing First Amendment rights, she has correctly opined that there is a need for very narrow exceptions to protect society and children.
I look forward to her consideration of our law to ensure parents have a voice in determining which video games are appropriate for their children.
