Virginia Supreme Court Blocks Voting Rights for Felons
Gosh darn, Gov. Terry McAuliffe only wants to give the vote to those whose punishment has ended
The Virginia Supreme Court on Friday voided Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s effort to recruit democrat votes er…… I mean restore voting rights to 206,000 people with felony records.
“Never before have any of the prior 71 Virginia Governors issued a clemency order of any kind — including pardons, reprieves, commutations, and restoration orders — to a class of unnamed felons without regard for the nature of the crimes or any other individual circumstances relevant to the request,” Chief Justice Donald W. Lemons wrote for the majority. “To be sure, no Governor of this Commonwealth, until now, has even suggested that such a power exists.”
Damn system must be rigged to properly work.
Or, are those friggin judges making more money than a decent bribe these days?
Major blow to the Democratics for the November presidential race in the crucial swing state.
Scumbag Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (American European) who overstepped his clemency powers by issuing a sweeping executive order was in tears.
