Duane "Dog the Bounty Hunter" Chapman has just gone political. Well, sort of.
His wife, Beth, has been named president of the Professional Bail Agents of the United States, the "National Voice of the Bail Agent." PBUS' mission is to provide information, education and representation for the 15,000 bail agents in the U.S.
It is that latter charge that Beth Chapman acted upon as one of her first official acts. She hired Terry Allen, formerly campaign chairman for former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum's 2016 presidential campaign, to lobby Congress against a bill to prohibit federal judges from using bail as a condition of pretrial release in criminal cases.
"I've just taken over this association and I'm going to be very aggressive in this fight," she told Politico. "A law like this shows nothing but blatant disrespect for our law enforcement. It's criminal welfare."
The No Money Bail Act was introduced by U.S. Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.). It is co-sponsored by Reps. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-N.J.), Brenda Lawrence (D-Mich.) and Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.).
"America's broken criminal justice system goes against the core of our values," Lieu said. "We cannot both be a nation that believes in freedom and equal justice under the law, yet at the same time, locks up thousands of people solely because they cannot afford bail."
