Virginia Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe restoring voting rights for roughly 200,000 convicted felons is part of a lauded, national effort to reverse sentencing laws that most affect African Americans. But Republicans are suggesting McAuliffe, a long-time Clinton supporter, went too far by including violent criminals and that his move is a transparent effort to win votes.
The governors executive order allows Virginia felons, includes convicted murders and rapists, who by Friday had completed their sentence and finished supervised release, parole or probation requirements to vote in the swing state in the November presidential elections.

Congress can take no action on this until the FBI does it thing at the BIDDING of King obama for Queen Hillary
Quickest way to create Commiecrat voters ever.
"Republicans: Virginia Gov McAuliffe restored felon voting rights to help Clinton, political opportunism"
I knew long ago the fix was in for Hillary. But I have to admit to being wrong in one aspect. I surmised it would be from the illegal alien vote. Now that we see how easy it is to just have felons vote, voila! Hillary 16.
We need to challenge this in the courts so at least it does not become law until after the elections. We may need VA in the EV count.
I suppose felons voting for Hillary would best be described as “professional courtesy”.
I guess they figure that the dead vote won’t carry the day this time around.
Except that most of the re-enfranchised felons who have the energy and will to actually register and show up to vote will probably end up voting for Trump. Hillary will remind them of the b!+(# public defender who plea bargained their a$$ into jail. And if she thinks stumbling through an imitation of Aunt Esther is going to gain her the same votes as Obama in 2008 and 2012 she’s even more delusional than I’d imagined.
Yep,just like buzzards not eating lawyers.
Many democrats don’t support murderers and rapists getting the vote. This is an excellent crossover vote opportunity for a huge backlash.
IF we have a crossover candidate.
Where is the legislature? How can one man do this?
The FBI does NOT answer to Obama...
**crickets** from the Media DeathStar.
It's more like Comey answers to Jarrett.
I think this is an overreach of executive power. Rights cannot be restored without the consent of the legislature.
Yes, this needs to end up in court, and the courts need to issue an injunction before this is put into effect.
It would interesting to know how many of these ex-felons actually voted before they went to jail.
Well put. Probably not many upstanding citizens among rapists and murderers.
BTW, I'm TIRED of "ex-felon" being used!
These guys may be ex-cons, but the felony is forever.
It's not "erased" by leaving prison.
They will now. I agree with Rummyfan, can't the legislature do something about this? Can you folks in Virginia call your legislators and see what can be done? This executive fiat stuff, whether it's Obama or Governors, is just crap. We don't elect dictators. . or we didn't used to.
Traitorous in my opinion
