"Father Time" Protesting for Father's Rights

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. -- A Yakima man found an interesting way to draw attention to father's rights. If you drove by the Yakima County Courthouse today you may have noticed "Father Time" protesting out front.

He chose "Father Time" because it's all about time, he says, and the time father's get to spend with their children.

Thaddeus Tietsort has been an advocate for father's rights for over a decade and he says now's the time to start the dialogue about 50/50 parenting rights in the state of Washington.

Yakima County Judges are up for re-election this year and Thaddeus would like to see this become an issue in their campaigns.

"They talk about early childhood pregnancy, gangs, violence," said Tietsort, "I think if we included fathers back into children's lives in the state of Washington it could really make an impact on that for the better."

Thaddeus is going to continue protesting every Sunday in front of the courthouse until the election.
