Research by the GotNews/WeSearchr team has revealed that a Democratic national convention delegate from California this year was a convicted child kidnapper and child rapist.
Using the California Megan’s Law website and the official list of California DNC delegates, researchers found that one Doug “Robert” Figueroa representing Berkeley was a convicted sex offender.

Figueroa was convicted of both “lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14 years of age” and “kidnapping a child under the age of 14 years old with intent to commit lewd or lascivious acts.”

The Press Enterprise covered Figueroa in 2013 while Figueroa was student body president at Riverside City College:
On Monday, April 1, anonymous black-and-white fliers were found pinned to billboards at Riverside City College saying the student body president is a registered sex offender.
Students at first thought it was a cruel prank, but once it was confirmed, the revelation left them asking whether RCC administrators, who acknowledge they knew about it before the election, should have disclosed the information to the campus community.
Doug Robert Figueroa, 40, of Riverside, was sentenced to five years in prison for admitting that in 2005 he kidnapped a boy under the age of 14 and then committed lewd and lascivious acts on him. Court documents do not reveal any other details of the crimes.
Doug Robert Figueroa appears on the website Academia.edu, where he hasn’t submitted any papers but is listed as living in Riverside with an undergraduate degree from UC Berkeley in — ironically — “social welfare.”
Figueroa appeared in 2013 on video claiming he did not touch the child and that he “knows what he did.” The criminal records seem to suggest otherwise.
Why is the Democratic party allowing convicted kidnappers and sex offenders to be convention delegates?
The GotNews/WeSearchr team is still going through the list of California delegates to determine if there were any other convicted sex offenders in Philadelphia this summer.
