Voting Rights for Felons Becoming a Key Issue for Democrats

Florida has emerged as a battleground in the fight over the 6 million people, in and out of jail, who can't vote because they were convicted of a felony.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott won a big legal battle Wednesday, but the fight over voting rights for felons in his state is far from over.

Scott was under a court order to revise the state's system for restoring voting rights. Currently, former offenders in Florida have to wade through a difficult and protracted clemency process, which a federal judge last month deemed "fatally flawed." He gave the state until April 26 to revamp its process.

People may think that most felons would vote Democratic, but it was the Dems' policies that did nothing to reduce the poverty that so many felons experienced before landing in prison. They need education!

The dumbocrats are desperate to get any group to vote for them except regular American citizens

Dems are losing illegals so now they need felons.

Democrats also believe in Life after Death, cuz they want the dead to continue to vote!

Criminals are inherently ignorant people; that's what landed them in jail.

If Dems can take credit for getting them voter rights, guess who they will one for.

DON'T BE A DUMMY!

It's so sad for democrats that they have to find felt no, dead people, illegal aliens, etc. To win elections. And when they lose, blame a foreign country.
Sad!

They know the felons will vote Democrat. This crap has got to stop.

The next step is more criminals we be elected to more powerful positions and our government will be more corrupt.

You and others are just so stupid it's infuriating. So quick to take OTHER people's rights and property as long as it doesn't affect you. Most of you don't even know how many types of felonies there are and you could have committed some without even realizing it. Chicken farmers and watermen are not the best educated
