Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe signed an executive order to grant rights to felons for the first time in the state’s history since the Civil War. The move will affect 206,000 people and may also impact presidential elections results. The McAuliffe administration said the order, announced Friday at the Virginia state Capitol, will impact the rights of the people formerly convicted of violent and non-violent felons in Virginia and who have completed their sentences and post-prison probation or parole but not yet applied to have their voting rights restored. Virginia is one of four US states that requires former felons to apply for re-acquisition of voting rights, the administration said, the harshest class of voting restriction for former felons in the US. Just in time for the for the Virginia state primaries and 2016 presidential election right. Why did the state of Virginia wait to do this action until the 2016 election? More then likely this is to help boost Hillary against Bernie Sanders, and to get people to vote for other Republican candidates besides Trump. Now if they did their time the right way they are entitled to their right to vote. Since in waited until the 2016 election though do you smell that stench of voter fraud, by waiting till the 2016 election where both parties have anti establishment candidates. I feel though as if this move is to help Hillary out in 2016 more then anyone else by allowing felons to vote finally when Hillary Clinton holds the Democratic delegate lead for 2016. Waiting until the 2016 election to allow convicted felons to vote, only smells like more votes for Hillary. Wondering if these felons being given voter rights were brainwashed to vote for Hillary in 2016, or to vote against Trump in the Republican primaries in an effort to take down Trump in Virginia. If this move works in Virginia get ready to see this moved pushed in more states before the 2016 election.
