And the Ny Times is carping on its editorial page about giving the franchise back to felons:
A criminal released from prison has paid his debt and we hope to integrate him back into society. Yet in most states, released felons are deprived of the right to vote, in some cases for the rest of their lives. In the past five years, five states have rescinded or modified their laws, restoring the vote to more than 450,000 people. Other states, and the federal government, should join this trend. Disenfranchising felons is an archaic practice, at odds with basic American values about both punishment and democracy.
Why do they care? Is there anyone left in NY proper that Bill Clinton did not pardon to shore up Hillary’s base?
