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.

measure all things by their effect on society. I signed someone elses name on a $20.00 check in 1958 when I was 18 years old...tried and convicted for forgery (felony) 3 years probation....is it O.K. with you if I vote now??

my first national vote after that was for Kennedy in 1960 and I have never missed a national or local election since. I have been honest all my life, owned several very successful businesses, paid a HUGE amoung in taxes and frankly, I don't think my conviction means a damned thing. I even worked in the Indiana department of corrections and they know of my conviction....

What’s you point??

You are still a felon...regardless if you have voting rights restored. There is no such thing as an ex felon.
