Independent presidential candidate finds himself embroiled in controversy today as accusations of sexual assault from 1998 have come to light. According to a revealing exposé in , Kennedy is accused of groping his family's nanny, .

Eliza Cooney, who worked as the Kennedy family's weekend nanny in the 1990s, claims the incident occurred when she was 23 years old. At the time, RFK Jr. was 45 and married with five children. Cooney, who told.

A bipartisan bill passed in Olympia is set to tackle staffing shortages in civil service roles across state, especially , where recruitment has reached critically low levels.

Senate Bill 6157: A Legislative Milestone

Recruitment Of Recipients

The new legislation allows the (SPD) to recruit recipients of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) to become police officers. This change is particularly significant given the current unappealing nature of law enforcement careers to potential recruits and the noticeable increase in violent , especially homicides, in Seattle.

Dreamers Now Eligible For Public Service

DACA recipients, also known as “Dreamers,” can now apply for jobs as police officers, firefighters, and sheriff's deputies in Washington state. They were brought to the United States illegally as children, but have been granted temporary protection from deportation and permission to work legally in the U.S.

Previously, the state barred Dreamers from working as public servants due to their immigration status. Now, the floundering SPD is actively pursuing these new recruitment opportunities, heavily encouraging qualified DACA recipients to apply.

Local media reports suggest that recruiting DACA recipients aims to diversify the police force and address the ongoing manpower crisis. As of late 2023, the SPD had only 424 active police officers, its lowest number in decades.

Rising Crime Rates In Seattle

Meanwhile, Seattle has seen a significant rise in its homicide rate recently. In 2023, the city recorded 70 homicides, setting a new record since at least 1979. This increase is part of a broader trend of rising violent crime in Seattle and across Washington state. Between 2019 and 2022, Washington experienced a 96% increase in homicides.

Conclusion

Washington joins states like California, Colorado and Illinois in allowing law enforcement agencies to recruit DACA recipients.

Wisconsin and New Jersey are also considering similar legislation.
