INSANITY: Bernie Sanders Wants The Boston Marathon Bomber To Be Able To Vote (VIDEO)

During a town hall event on CNN on Monday night, Bernie Sanders said something that should cost him the Democratic nomination. If he somehow still gets the nomination, the comment should cost him the 2020 election.

A young woman asked Bernie if his support for prisoners voting would extend to someone like the Boston Marathon bomber and he said yes.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) on Monday night said he supported the voting rights of felons, including the Boston Marathon bomber who killed four people and injured 264 others during the 2013 attack.

Anne Carlstein, a Harvard University student, asked Sanders at a CNN town hall in Manchester, N.H. about recent comments supporting felons and sex offenders voting while in prison.

“Does this mean you would support enfranchising people like the Boston Marathon bomber, a convicted terrorist and murderer. Do you think those convicted of sexual assault should have the opportunity to vote for politicians who could have a direct impact on women’s rights?” Carlstein asked…

“Anne to answer your question, as it happens in my own state of Vermont, from the very first days of our state’s history, what our Constitution says is that everybody can vote,” Sanders said. “If somebody commits a serious crime, sexual assault, murder, they’re going to be punished. They may be in jail for 10 years, 20 years, 50 years, their whole lives. That’s what happens when you commit a serious crime, but I think the right to vote is inherent to our democracy. Yes, even for terrible people.”

Bernie’s outrageous comment drew some strong reactions on Twitter:

Bernie should be ashamed for saying this.

The victims of the bomber don’t get to vote anymore, why should he?
