Virginia Governor Allowed up to 60,000 Convicted Felons to Vote

Virginia Governor Allowed up to 60,000 Convicted Felons to Vote

As I wrote on Monday, the Dems have already been accused of voter fraud in South Florida. 

Corruption is also evident in the swing state of Virginia, where Democratic Governor Terry McAuliffe – a close friend of Hillary Clinton’s – has decided to grant voting rights to as many as 60,000 convicted felons just in time to vote. 

Back in April, McAuliffe announced that he would be granting voting rights to between 180,000 and 200,000 former felons. Since then, McAuliffe has managed to pardon between 50,000 and 60,000 individuals – nearly five times more than previously reported. 

Former felons who received the governor’s letter also received voter registration forms with pre-paid return postage. No other voters in Virginia received this service. 

Most of these individuals are expected to vote blue, and McAuliffe’s unprecedented action may be enough to tip the state in Clinton’s favor. “It is not yet known how many felons registered or will cast a ballot, but with Trump and Clinton statistically tied in Virginia, these criminals could make all the difference,” reports Breitbart. 

McAuliffe may insist that his goal is to fight discrimination and help those who have served their sentences “re-enter society on fair and just terms,” but it’s easy to see what his real motive is. 

“The singular purpose of Terry McAuliffe’s governorship is to elect Hillary Clinton President of the United States,” argues William Howell, Speaker of the Virginia House of Delegates. “This office has always been a stepping stone to a job in Hillary Clinton’s cabinet.” 

Clara Belle Wheeler, vice-chairman of the Virginia Board of Elections, says she is “acutely and chronically aware” of the effect 60,000 Democratic votes could have on the election. She also pointed out that McAuliffe had explicitly asked felons to vote for Hillary. 

The Virginia Governor initially sought to allow as many as 200,000 of Virginia’s felons to vote in the 2016 election, but state courts ruled that he had to review each case individually. McAuliffe responded to this roadblock by using an autopen to sign thousands of letters – as if he had personally reviewed each case individually. 

Virginia is considered a “must-win” for team Clinton, and the state has a history of tiny margins. For example, the US Senate race of 2014 was decided by 17,000 votes; the attorney general’s race came down to less than 200. Imagine what could happen if all 60,000 of McAuliffe’s criminals head to the polls today and vote for Hillary. 

Author’s Note: It’s situations like this that make voting even more important. PB urges you to head to the polls today and vote, no matter which state you live in.
