In the U.S, however, it seems the pedophiles currently control both houses of congress and the Presidency. Or so it would seem.
AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – A political party formed by Dutch pedophiles is unlikely to gather sufficient support to run in general elections next month.

The party was launched in May and its campaign for a cut in the age of consent from 16 to 12, and the legalization of child pornography and sex with animals has provoked widespread outrage within and outside the Netherlands.
The party managed to attract over 100 sympathizers on its Web site although several withdrew their support.
“They are afraid that their windows will be smashed, just as happened yesterday to our chairman,” De Jonge said on Wednesday.
The PNVD says it wants to lift the taboo on pedophilia which it has said has intensified since the 1996 Marc Dutroux child abuse scandal in neighboring Belgium.
In July, a Dutch court rejected a bid by a children’s rights group to have the party banned, saying it was protected by democratic freedoms and judges could not take lightly a decision to ban a political party.
