Clinton Ally Lets 206,000 Felons Vote

Recommended Posts

Over 200,000—mostly black—criminals, including rapists, robbers, and murderers—have been given the right to vote in the state of Virginia in the 2016 presidential elections.

Democratic Governor—and close Hilary Clinton ally—Terry McAuliffe yesterday signed an executive order granting 206,000 previously disbarred felons the right to vote. The order applies to all felons who have completed their sentences and been released from supervised probation or parole.

McAuliffe’s decision “particularly affects black residents of Virginia,” the Washington Post said,adding that one in four blacks in the state have “been permanently banned from voting because of laws restricting the rights of those with convictions.”

With the signing of Friday’s executive order, McAuliffe eliminated the need for an application for violent felons who had completed their sentences up to that moment.

The action has the potential to expand the state’s voter rolls, currently estimated at about 5.4 million, by as much as 3.8 percent—and will obviously benefit Clinton against any Republican rival in the state.

Along with restoring voting rights, the action restores the right to serve on a jury, run for office, and become a notary public. The new rights also apply to felons convicted in another state and living in Virginia.

Virginia is one of 11 states where ex-offenders cannot vote unless the state gives them an individual exemption. The high nonwhite crime rate means that McAuliffe will have to sign an identical executive order every month for the remaining two years of his term to cover all the violent felons who get out of prison each month.

Many US states have laws barring convicted felons from voting. The issue has long been prominent in “civil rights” activists’ agendas, simply because so many blacks and other nonwhites are affected by it because of their vastly higher crime rates.
