Bernie Sanders says felons, even Boston Marathon bomber, should have right to vote in prison



Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders said he thinks every U.S. citizen, even the convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, should be allowed to vote in American elections.

Sanders offered his stance at a CNN town hall Monday when asked whether he thought felons should be allowed to vote while they’re incarcerated, not just after their release. 

He was pressed on whether it was appropriate to enfranchise sex offenders or someone convicted of a heinous crime like Tsarnaev, who with his brother carried out the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing that left three dead and injured hundreds more.

"Yes, even for terrible people, because once you start chipping away and you say, 'Well, that guy committed a terrible crime, not going to let him vote. Well, that person did that. Not going to let that person vote,' you're running down a slippery slope," Sanders said in response to a question about restoring felons' voting rights.

The question, and Sanders' response, was one of the more interesting moments in a marathon round of voter forums at St. Anslem College in New Hampshire, where five Democratic hopefuls made their cases to young voters.

I’m no fan of Bernie Sanders this time around. In fact, I don’t believe that he will even be in the hunt. But I think his theory about felons voting is the least of our worries. I am more concerned about collusion and obstruction of justice. Bernie doesn’t hold a candle to the fascist, white supremacist, white nationalist that is currently residing in MY house.

Geez, posting a meme takes no thought or effort. Thank you for explaining that I have TDS. I am glad you put a name for this, since there are many Americans with this syndrome. I also appreciate the additional descriptions such as “racist, bigoted, sexist, homophobiic and xenophobic”. Don couldn’t pronounce, spell or understand the meaning of these terms. It would be an impossible task for Stephen Miller to even attempt explanation. Don is a pox on our nation.
