Sheldon Whitehouse gets cookies for healthcare, castigated for BurrillvilleBy Steve Ahlquist on July 19, 2017- Backstory,  back in 2014 Senator Whitehouse refused to meet with Coyote RI and it took us 4 months to get an appointment with his policy advisor Rele Abiade. While Whitehouse was the chair of the crimes and terrorism committee which the 2014 Save Act fell under, he supported this horrible bill which turned into the 2015 Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act (JVTA). Whitehouse doesn’t seem to know the first thing about the topic and of course he hasn’t taken any action about RI having 320 unlicensed foster homes in 2016 and he yet all for stealing our first amendment rights by trying to censor the internet under the hysterical guise of SAVE THE CHILDREN from evil traffickers. Meanwhile the US has 2.5million homeless kids and our foster care system has been broken for decades. So basically they threw kids under the bus so they could rationalize the war against adult sex workers

Maybe Senator WhiteHouse shouldn’t have refused to meet with RI sex workers while he supported the horrible bills like “Save Act of 2014 which turned into the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act of 2015”.    In February 2014  Coyote RI was granted a meeting with Rele Abiade,  who is Senator Sheldon’s policy advisor.
