This is what Tammy predicted in her latest column at the Washington Times: Bernie Sanders and his cynical proposition: Giving incarcerated felons the vote
Keep in mind, very often Democrats will propose a ridiculously extreme position, like allowing terrorists and serial killers to vote from prison, and then the “compromise” becomes the actual dynamic they were seeking. In this case, perhaps either allowing people in prison to vote who are not felons, or enfranchising felons who have been released from prison but are still on parole having not yet actually completed their sentence.
Democrats laugh when they suggest we take 5 steps toward the cliff and Republicans chime in, insist on ‘compromise,’ arguing for taking just 2 steps toward the cliff. That’s a win, we’re told. Is it?
Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA), who serves as co-chair of Sen. Bernie Sanders‘s (I-VT) 2020 presidential campaign, broke with Sanders over his support for allowing the Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to vote from prison, telling CNN’s New Day on Wednesday that he “wouldn’t go that far” to restore voting rights for felons….

Sanders’ position that the right to vote should be extended to felons in prison https://t.co/xxuElMPn9N pic.twitter.com/7kRTlSxnAc
