FelonsVotesMatter: Virginia Governor To Announce 13,000 Ex-Cons Have Been Registered To Vote (For Hillary)

We recently wrote about the efforts of Virginia's Governor, and long-time Clinton confidant, Terry McAuliffe, to restore voting rights to 200,000 ex-felons (see "FelonsVotesMatter (To Hillary) - Clinton's Election Fate In Virginia Lies With 200,000 Unregistered Offenders"). As we pointed out, 200,000 is over 5% of the 3.8mm people who voted in the Presidential race in 2012 and is larger than Obama's margin of victory over Mitt Romney of 149,298. But we certainly don't mean to imply that McAuliffe's efforts are in any way motivated by a desire to help Clinton win the state of Virginia in November...we're sure this problem is just an issue that has tugged at McAuliffe's heart for a long time. But we digress.

Back in July, Virginia's Supreme Court blocked McAuliffe's effort to restore voting rights to 200,000 ex-felons all at one time saying that he would instead have to restore each person's voting right individually. Proving his determination and willingness to devote unlimited taxpayer funds to the effort, the Washington Post is reporting that McAuliffe will announce on Monday that he has restored efforts to the first 13,000 ex felons on a "case-by-case" basis. He is expected to continue the effort until the voting rights for all 200,000 ex-felons have been restored.

And just how is he restoring their voting rights? Is it through a pardon or some other method? If through a pardon that would be a slap in the face to every victim of these felons!

Really, We are giving voting rights back to Felons, JUST SO they can vote for Hillary? Just like this Article "CNN Implies Blacks Won't Back Trump if He Doesn't Give Felons Voting Rights"
So now just to get some votes we give criminals voting rights.
This is our Future USA ?

The DemocRATs are the most corrupt group of individuals in the US. They push for open borders and openly show their support for it, all for votes from the Hispanic community (both legal and illegal). They are the biggest supporters and backers of welfare benefits, so they have the black vote. They promote allowing any and all refugees into the US (many with anti-American ideals), so they will have those votes. They got on the train with homosexuals and transgenders for their votes. Now they want to give convicted felons (mostly Democrats) the right to vote.
They think that the average American is too stupid to see through their schemes. SICKENING

Oh 11:14 please, SHUT UP. You sound as if whites never recieve welfare...but are the biggest recipients of foodstamps. You sound as if whites don't commit crimes...they just aren't prosecuted at the same rates as blacks. If a felon can pay taxes, surely he can vote.
