The dullard congresscritters who infest “the squad” put forth a bill which would give felons the right to vote. Since an inordinate amount of African-Americans are jailed for felonies, this would truly bolster their voting bloc – or it it Block?
The House Tuesday rejected an amendment authored by the progressive Squad to restore voting rights not only to felons but to individuals who are currently incarcerated.
The measure went down in bipartisan defeat with just 97 Democrats voting in favor of the amendment compared with 328 members who voted against – 119 Democrats and 209 Republicans.
Freshman Rep. Cori Bush, D-Mo., authored the amendment with support from fellow progressive Reps. Mondaire Jones, D-N.Y., Jamaal Bowman, D-N.Y., Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., and New Jersey’s Bonnie Watson Coleman.
Wow, 119 members of their own party effectively told them, LOLGF. Freshman twat Cori Bush (Dumbass – MO) had this to say after the vote:
Ahead of the vote, Bush pointed out that barring felons and people who are currently in prison from participating in federal elections disproportionately affects people of color.
Gee, maybe that’s because they commit a disproportionate amount of crimes?
