Republicans Freak Out As Terry McAuliffe Restores Voting Rights To 206,000 Virginians
Republicans Freak Out as Terry McAuliffe Restores Voting Rights to 206,000 Virginians

Republicans are losing their minds over Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe restoring the voting rights of 206,000 Virginians who were convicted of felonies, but served their time and completed any release or probationary requirements.

McAuliffe rightly restores the right to have paid their debt to society to vote as a GOP official in NY wipes 126,000 law abiding taxpayers from the rolls……………..One person is a compassionate leader as the other is a common crook…….

Democrats encourage/support the Constitutional right to vote................. GOP looks to suppress the vote by passing unconstitutional laws to make voting harder for the poor and minority communities

I know one Governor whose gonna be around a bit longer ;)

To me motive IS important but in this case, after someone served there time and they have proven to no longer be a threat to society (I might have watched Shawshank Redemption too many times) then they should get their voting rights back. Only those still serving time should not be voting.
Unless, maybe, the crime was voting fraud....

Here's the "freak out":
“I am stunned yet not at all surprised by the Governor’s action. I am stunned at his broad and unprecedented view of executive power, which directly contradicts how past Governors have interpreted their clemency powers, and I am stunned at his willingness to restore the rights of the most heinous criminals without batting an eye. Yet, I am not surprised by the lengths to which he is willing to go to deliver Virginia to Hillary Clinton in November.”
A calm, reasoned response to a highly questionable decision that is a prime example of the abuse of Executive privilege for political gain.

Don't want your voting franchise suspended? Don't commit a felony and get convicted.

Why is it that certain Democrat officials seem to reward illegal acts, like restoring the voting franchise to almost a quarter million felons, right before a major election, or telling illegal immigrants that they will not be deported if they are a kid or if they're an adult with kids here with them?

The only potential agreement I may have with this is if it only covered those people that were convicted of a felony for possessing the small amount of marijuana that rises to the level of a felony. But, that's not what it appears was done here.

"Creative interpretation" (also known as circumvention and/or intentional bastardizing) of constitutional powers is becoming a trait of the Democrats.

Way to disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of GOP voters who will now have their vote canceled out by the vote from a Felon.

This may have escaped your attention but it is a responsibility of government (with a few rules and exceptions) to reinstate the rights of a citizen who has paid his/her debt to society......

You may have been napping when the teacher in HS American history cover that in class

Re: Republicans Freak Out as Terry McAuliffe Restores Voting Rights to 206,000 Virgin

I'm with imyoda on this one. We seem to do everything we can to disadvantage people who have made mistakes in their pasts to such a point where almost the only option left for them is to go back to crime.

Additionally, we criminalize almost everything you can think of. Should someone who's only crime was to take drugs have rights revoked their entire lives even though the only harm done was perhaps to themselves?

No...if someone has served their time then they need to be done with their punishment.
