VA: Virginia pulls 132 confined sex offenders from list of eligible voters

[Washington Post]

State officials abruptly removed 132 sex offenders from Virginia’s list of eligible voters last week, reacting to the latest problem emerging from Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s sweeping move to restore voting rights to felons who had served out their sentences.

A spokesman for McAuliffe (D) said that the offenders, who are confined in a treatment facility under a form of civil commitment, had appeared on the list of eligible voters by mistake.

  1. American Detained in America

    Further proof that it’s punishment…keep it coming!

  2. Eric

    That’s 132 people that are being kept past their lawful sentencing date because some prison psychologist wrote a report and somehow came to the conclusion that these guys shouldn’t be released. That is very Sovietesque.

    “But the governor’s office reiterated its position Friday, with support from Claire Guthrie Gastanaga, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Virginia affiliate. She agreed that “supervised release,” as the term is used in the executive order, “should be read to include any supervised release from prison and not just probation or parole.””

    Can you believe that shit? The Virginia ACLU agrees that they should not be able to vote!

    McAuliffe spokeswoman Christina Nuckols said Wednesday that the governor’s order does not cover the center’s residents because the “24/7 supervision” they get at the facility amounts to the “supervised release” that the governor’s order says must be completed before voting rights are restored.

    Janus, a professor at the Mitchell Hamline School of Law in St. Paul, Minn., said considering those in civil commitment to be in supervised release would be “totally inconsistent with what the states have claimed about civil commitment all along.”

    Whoops….it sounds like someone in the Governor’s office forgot “the story” they’re supposed to stick to that it’s not punishment. Patently obvious it’s all about getting re-elected. What’s disgusting is ACLU-VA *supports* the Gov.’s position! WTF?
