(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) President Joe Biden this week nominated Deputy Labor Secretary Julie Su to become the next Secretary of Labor.
Before her stint in the Biden administration, Su served as labor secretary in California, where massive COVID-relief fraud took place under her watch. She failed to enforce California law aimed at preventing pedophilia in Hollywood, the Daily Caller reported.
During her time as California labor commissioner from 2011 to 2018, Su led an agency that was supposed to enforce labor laws in the state, including the Hollywood Child Protection Act that was signed into law by then-Gov. Jerry Brown in 2012 when it was revealed that leftist Hollywood is full of pedophiles, according to the Post Millennial.
This act mandated everyone who worked with child actors to obtain a Child Performer Services Permit from the Labor Department. To receive the permit, applicants had to be approved by the labor commissioner’s office after submitting fingerprints and passing a federal background check. If a person who worked with child actors failed to obtain a permit, it could result in one year in jail and a $10,000 fine.
While people from Hollywood were not bothered to obtain the permit, Su’s department also wasn’t bothered to refer any violations of the legislation to a prosecuting agency.
Not one Hollywood publicist representing child actors had obtained a permit, as well as dozens of managers, coaches and photographers, under Su’s command, according to a 2018 Deadline report.
BizParent co-founder Anne Henry, the lead sponsor of AB 1660, said that the law was designed to protect child actors from convicted pedophiles like Robert Villard — a sexual deviant who worked with child actors and was arrested for possessing child pornography and sexual acts with an underage boy multiple times.
“Before this, there was nothing to stop him from returning to the industry and starting the abuse cycle all over again,” she said. “We wanted something to prevent that from happening.”
