As a proud Virginia resident, I find the following, as reported in today's Washington Post, very troubling:
"Civic and social organizations are teaming with Virginia Gov. Timothy M. Kaine to try to add thousands of nonviolent offenders to the voting rolls in time for the November election, a move that has angered Republicans who say the effort is designed to help Democratic Sen. Barack Obama's presidential campaign."
Now if I thought that some of these ex-cons might vote Republican, I may have a different view on this subject, but let's face it, criminals are not one of our constituencies.
The ACLU and the NAACP are helping Kaine in this effort. There's a shocker.Sphere: Related Content
