Restore voting rights to ex-inmates

Eric Holder, attorney general of the United States, speaks at a reception earlier this month in Washington. At a conference Feb. 11 at Georgetown Law School, Mr. Holder called for the reinstatement of ex-felons’ voting rights upon their release from prison.

Surprise, surprise, surprise.

 The states that still restrict a felons voting rights after prison and either probation or parole are, Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Iowa, Kentucky, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, Tennessee, Virginia, and Wyoming.

I would have guessed , in fact I did guess that all of them are republican held states.

Care to guess why?

90% of their prisoners are of an indigenous background and therefore tend to vote democratic because their state is controlled by republicans.

I was wrong!

What’s up with Virginia?
