Looking for another way to rig elections in favor of Democrats, one 2020 candidate is now suggesting that even convicted felons serving in prison should be allowed to vote.
Senator Bernie Sanders told a gathered audience at a town hall meeting in Iowa that making such a practice nationwide law “is absolutely the direction we should go.”
As a Representative of Vermont, Sanders comes from one of only two states that currently allow incarcerated criminals to vote.
“In my state, what we do is separate. You’re paying a price, you committed a crime, you’re in jail,” the Des Moines Register reports Sanders saying. “But you’re still living in American society and you have a right to vote. I believe in that, yes, I do.”
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Sanders, with his socialist leanings would seek to undermine yet another tested American system.
