ABSTRACT
The article presents the findings from a study conducted by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) on the issuance of passports to registered sex offenders. It reveals that 4,500 passports were issued to registered sex offenders because the government does not have a statutory authority to deny passports to these individuals. Additionally, it found that about 50 of the registered sex offenders are not living in the country or their whereabouts were not known.
