Posted by on Aug 7, 2018 in Featured, Other Issues | Comments

Laws prohibiting felons from voting are DESIGNED to prevent constructive reform of the criminal justice system and to disenfranchise the poor and our black citizens! There is NO justification for them; they have nothing to do with public safety or reducing crime … they make no sense at all. Excerpts from the Article:   Keith Sellars and his daughters were driving home from dinner at a Mexican restaurant last December when he was...
