Bloviating Zeppelin: Your ACLU At Work Once Again

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Your ACLU At Work Once Again


The ACLU wants felons to be able to vote. Yes, that ACLU (see above).

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- After serving eight months behind bars for a conviction of receiving stolen property, Annette McWashington Pruitt was excited about the prospect of being able to vote again.

One of her first stops after being released from prison was the Jefferson County Voter Registrar's Office. But she was told she was a convicted felon and couldn't vote.
"I couldn't believe it," Pruitt said. "They continued to give me numbers to call. It was very much demeaning."

Now she has gone to court to try to get her right to vote restored.

On Monday, the American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit in Montgomery Circuit Court on behalf of Pruitt and two other ex-felons seeking restoration of their voting rights. The lawsuit claims Alabama law is unclear on the subject, citing a bill passed by the Legislature in 2003 that says felons can vote unless convicted on "crimes of moral turpitude," but never defines those crimes.


Question: Can an ex-felon register to vote and vote?
Answer: An ex-felon can register to vote and vote if he/she is not in prison or on parole for a felony conviction.

Parole for any felony conviction.

Guess where the ACLU is coming next?

Your state.

There is already a move underway to allow convicted felons the right, RIGHT damnit, to own guns...

Guns ruling spawns legal challenges by felons

I have no problem with ex-felons voting once they've done their time but I am more concerned that these guardians of our freedom are unworried about disenfranchising military people serving overseas. Their real concern is getting more lefty votes and they'll create them out of thin air if they have to.

Soon 'criminal' will be just another job category and we will no longer have 'police' but PC Officers.

"can an ex felon register to vote and vote?"
I know what they mean by asking that but it made me think of this response:
Sure...only Democrats vote more than once..they 'vote and vote..' and they'll be doing it this election, too.........what do you want to bet? What's the phrase? "Democrats vote and vote often?" something like that.

There's some Dem voter shenanigans in the news, I wish I remember now where that was.......multiple voting. You think it won't happen again?

A jacksonian, we won't have police officers because every time they react, they're under investigation...who would join today?

Yep, felons will be able to vote, just like dead democrats and illegal border hoppers.
