Democrats are hell-bent on turning out the vote any way they can, even if it means giving felons the right to vote and that’s exactly what California’s Democrat Governor Jerry Brown is doing.
Town Hall reports:
California Governor Signs Bill Giving Felons Right to Vote
Felons in California will now have the right to vote behind bars thanks to AB 2466, which Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law on Wednesday.
As part of a progressive effort to hasten their transition back into society, thousands of felons in county jail will now be able to take part in California elections.
Under the new law, anyone convicted of a felony, but who is not currently in state or federal prison or on parole, is allowed to vote.
California’s constitution denies the right to vote to anyone in prison or on parole. In 2011, the state’s Realignment Plan shifted many of the state’s corrections program responsibilities to local government. It spurred the transfer of many low-level felony offenders to county-run jails and programs in an effort to reduce overcrowded state and federal prisons and save money.
Of course, it must be a pure coincidence that this is happening 40 days before the presidential election.
