Virginia Gov. Pardons 60,000 Felons, Enough To Swing Election

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe has granted voting rights to as many as 60,000 convicted felons just in time for them to register to vote, nearly five times more than previously reported and enough to win the state for his long-time friend, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

McAuliffe sought to allow all of Virginia’s estimated 200,000 felons to vote, but state courts said each individual felon’s circumstances must be weighed. To get around that, McAuliffe used a mechanical autopen to rapidly sign thousands of letters, as if he had personally reviewed them.

Those who received McAuliffe’s letter also got voter registration forms with pre-paid return postage. No others in Virginia received such a service.

When The Daily Caller News Foundation pointed out that 60,000 could tip an election, Clara Belle Wheeler, vice-chairman of the Virginia Board of Elections and a Republican, said “I am acutely and chronically aware of that.” She also noted that McAuliffe has explicitly asked felons to vote for Clinton.

Wheeler said the last-minute, highly unorthodox flood of individual restorations had to be processed by registrars who were already overwhelmed by failing computer systems.

She also said that, while McAuliffe claimed to only be restoring voting rights of felons who had completed their sentences, his use of the autopen might not satisfy the court’s specific vetting requirement.

    The felons don’t even have to show up to vote. The cabal only needs the registrations to automatically attribute the votes to the commies.

    Perhaps we should have a law prohibiting politicians from having pens. These bastards do more damage with their pens than all the gang bangers with their illegal guns combined.

    Just make them use provisional ballots, do not count those ballots until the court can rule if this is even legal. The court has ruled it illegal twice.
