The latest “robocall” sponsored by the McCain campaign and the Republican National Committee features former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani criticizing Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama for his position on mandatory minimum sentencing, CNN reported Oct. 23.
“You need to know that Barack Obama opposes mandatory prison sentences for sex offenders, drug dealers, and murderers,” Giuliani says in the automated phone call. “It's true, I read Obama's words myself.”
“With priorities like these, we just can't trust the inexperience and judgment of Barack Obama and his liberal allies,” according to Giuliani.
Obama supports “reforming mandatory minimum prison sentences,” according to his website.
“Every leading expert body in criminal justice has opposed the use of mandatory minimum sentences, including the Sentencing Commission, the Judicial Conference, the American Bar Association, and leading criminal justice scholars,” according to the Obama site.
