    I saw this on SeattleTimes this morning. They don't want employers to ask about your criminal history or do a background check before you are offered the job and if you do and they have a criminal history and you rescind the job offer you could get fined. Yet they want background checks to exercise our constitutional right to buy a firearm...

    So the city of Seattle can tell me that I cannot sift through some ones background? Then Companies should not be able to look at a potential employees credit score either, but they do.
    What a bunch of liberal BubblegumS!!! Washington & America is in a sad state of denial that idiots elect idiots to govern the masses!!! They will manage us to death...

    I can see the ACLU stepping into this one, and saying they're OK with it since it protects the criminals.

    I wonder how they feel about potential employers requiring you to give them access to your Facebook or twitter accounts?

    But sometimes I wonder if they sit around having a competition to see who can come up with the dumbest, most idiotic idea, and then see if they can get it passed, just for fun.
