Speaking recently at a town hall meeting in Iowa, Vermont Senator Sanders, a 2020 presidential runner wanna-be, was asked whether convicted in-jail prisoners should have the right to vote. Bernie replied, “I think that is absolutely the direction we should go”.
Senior Sanders, who’d be 80 years old in his first year as president, may not have considered if prisoners should also be allowed to vote in local elections. Can you imagine how it could affect non-prisoner citizens of towns where San Quentin, Sing Sing, Folsom and Leavenworth are located. Would it then be possible for newly-elected Al Capone descendants to serve as mayor of any of them?
