Bernie Sanders says Boston Marathon bomber should be allowed to vote

5 years ago

"I think the right to vote is inherent to our democracy. Yes, even for terrible people, because once you start chipping away ... you’re running down a slippery slope ... I believe even if they are in jail, they’re paying the price to society, that should not take away their inherent American right to participate in our democracy."

When moderator Chris Cuomo then asked specifically about the Boston Marathon bomber being allowed to vote from prison, Sanders said, "Look, this is what I believe. Do you believe in Democracy?"

"Do you believe that every single American 18 years of age or older who is an American citizen has the right to vote. Once you start chipping away at that, believe me that's what our Republican governors all over this country are doing."

The Democrat-concocted idea of Republican legislators engaging in "voter suppression" lie a die designed to smear the GOP's justified efforts to root out election fraud.
