FLORIDA - The words "sexual predator" would be stamped on the driver's licenses of sexual predators under bill language that was approved in the Florida House.
The language was attached Friday to a bill that deals with a number of Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles issues.
Democratic Rep. Gwyndolen Clarke-Reed pointed out that would mean department store clerks checking licenses for a credit card application would see that the person across the counter would be a sexual predator.
Republican Rep. Ed Hooper, who sponsored the amendment, replied, "And I should care why?"
The stamp would not be put on licenses of sexual offenders, who are not considered as dangerous as violent sexual predators.
