ex felon??

what is that? a felon is a felon. Once a felon, always a felon. Just cuz you gits on parole don’t mean you ain’t a felon no mo. Just cuz you gits off parole/probation don’t mean you ain’t a felon no mo.

It excludes them until the requirements are met at which time they can apply to have their voting rights restored.

I know several convicted felons in NY and their rights were restored at the time of their release, I think; regardless, voting rights can be restored.

The felon has to take the initiative and actively pursue the process.

Maybe we should just wipe their cans for them on this issue, too.

Being a felon in Chicago may be not be a problem..
Could be a felon is not a legal problem there..

Since the entire Chicago political machine is nasty..
Dwarfed by the NYC and New Jersey political machines..

The Washington D.C. political machine is not even recognized as a political machine..
American Political Rape is what it is.. POLITICAL RAPE...
Lady Liberty is raped daily.. sodomized hourly, pregnant with traitors..

The White Hut is a brothel.. with sex slaves and everything..

Once upon a time across this nation in many states, felons and ex-felons were NOT allowed to vote - some ever again.

Well, we can't legally exclude the part-time snowbirds who claim Florida residency for tax purposes, but tend to vote against the interests of native born residents.

And due to our tax advantages and lenient bankruptcy laws regarding homestead exemptions, we have a fairly large number of felons (pre and post conviction) from other states who move here for various reasons.

We can legally exclude felons from voting, so we do.
There is an onerous legal process for felons to regain full voting rights, and that is rarely granted, for good and logical reasons.

An extraordinary number of our legal residents, are not Floridians.

We also have voter ID laws.

Once a person serves his or her time, ALL rights should be restored, including the right to own firearms.

Prison is the punishment and it should be the only punishment, unless the death penalty was earned.

A person released from prison, and not on parole, has served their debt to society, period.

Good for Florida! Let’s extend that to states that don’t.

Does this also apply to unindicted (or indicted) felons known as Donkey and RINO politicians?
