DescriptionFormer Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick's entry into the 2020 Democratic presidential race is drawing renewed scrutiny toward his efforts to oust officials who had tried to put his brother-in-law, a convicted rapist, on the state's sex offender registry.

Patrick's brother-in-law Bernard Sigh was first convicted of spousal rape in 1993 and was again convicted of raping Patrick's sister earlier this year, The Washington Post reported.

Patrick in 2014 said that he had forced out two Sex Offender Registry Board officials over their attempts to overturn a hearing officer's decision to keep Sigh off the registry, arguing that the officials' actions were not appropriate, according to the Post.
