According to Sean Strub of Sero, there wasn't a dry eye in the house when Iowa state Sen. Matt McCoy cut off Nick Rhoades' and Donald Bogardus's ankle monitoring bracelets at HIV Is Not A Crime. Now that the HIV criminalization law has changed in Iowa, they are no longer considered sex offenders. (Video courtesy of Sean Strub.)
