Johnson made himself clear while testifying on behalf of the Diocesan Finance Committee in opposition to the Child Victims Act. This bill would, had it been enacted, have removed the statute of limitations for childhood victims of sexual assault thus allowing them to file civil law suits against the alleged perpetrators. The views of finance committee member Johnson are now raising serious questions about candidate Johnson.
