Attorney General Eric Holder is calling for an end to state laws that bar felons from voting, even after they have served their sentences.
"By perpetuating the stigma and isolation imposed on formerly incarcerated individuals, these laws increase the likelihood they will commit future crimes," Holder said Tuesday at a Washington, D.C., symposium on sentencing laws.
Holder said the restrictions bar 5.8 million Americans from casting a ballot, including 2.2 million African-Americans.
So now he wants to give felons (note over 25% are black) back their voting rights. Next he'll be wanting to give them their gun rights back. But the vets are mentally sick so take their's away.
