No, Rand Paul Is Not In Favor of Voting Rights

Like everything else about the Tribble-Toupeed One, the substance is far less than the appearance.

Joseph Gerth at the Courier:

Unable to spur state lawmakers to action on the subject, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul plans to introduce federal legislation this week that would restore voting rights to some convicted felons who have completed their sentences.

"It's the biggest voting rights issue of our day," Paul told David Gregory on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday. "We think there may be a million people who are being prevented from voting from having a previous felony conviction."

The Kentucky Republican's bill would allow anyone convicted of non-violent crimes in both state and federal courts to vote in federal elections once they complete their sentences, according to a summary of the bill provided by Paul's office.
"Federal elections."  Really, Gracie? And just exactly how are states supposed to allow particular voters to cast votes for federal candidates but not state and local candidates on the same ballot? Will they have "convicted felon - federal voting only" tattooed somewhere - their forearms maybe?

This bill would not restore voting rights to a single person. This is just more "libertarian" fakery from Ayn "I really do have black friends!" Randy.

He doesn't want non-white, non-male, non-straight, non-freakazoid, non-rich so-called "people" voting any more than his repug friends do.

He just wants you to think he does,.
