Hey Judgy! Who gets to “supervise” their votes? The DemocRATS?
How did the judge here “make law”?

Not much wiggle-room, even for a worm like Brown.
“The US Constitution is pretty clear on voting and felons.”
Yes, the Constitution is clear that felons MAY be prohibited from voting. The Constitution does not, in any way, REQUIRE that felons be prohibited from voting - states may choose whether or not (and to what extent) to restrict felons from voting.
