PHOENIX -- The Libertarian candidate for
Maricopa County Attorney said he wouldn't focus on crimes related to
prostitution or marijuana if he were elected to office.
Michael Kielsky spoke about his agenda during a live in-studio interview on CBS 5 News Saturday.
Kielsky said he would focus on crimes that have what he called "real victims."Kielsky said that means he would not bother prosecuting people who were caught smoking marijuana or picking up a prostitute.
When asked whether or not he has ever paid for a prostitute, Kielsky said no.
because I say if people are not causing harm we should not prosecute
them criminally, doesn't mean that I necessarily approve of the things
that might not be criminal or I might not wish to prosecute," said
Kielsky faces Republican Bill Montgomery in November's general election.
