Thousands of Alabama felons register to vote in last-minute push
 
Quote:

Thousands of felons across Alabama have registered to vote in recent weeks, according to Pastor Kenneth Glasgow, who is heading up a statewide effort to get felons to the voting booth.

The Alabama Special Election is next Tuesday, December 12.

Jeff Sessions vacated Senate seat is up for grabs.

Let's do this, Alabama! :cool:

I hope they turn out in huge numbers & vote. If we want people with felony convictions to have the right to vote returned then politicians need to see that the privilege is being used by those who get it. Plus it will make them realize that criminal justice reform needs to be a priority because those affected ,& that have the ability to vote, will use that power to elect someone who will work for them, not against.

President Trump has endorsed Roy Moore for the upcoming Senatorial election in Alabama. The candidate should order a new ten commandments monument, now eleven, with the addition of Thou shall not grope minor girls.

This would be even more funny if it wasn't a scary possibility. The sad thing is that the people most against criminal justice reform are the ones with the most skeletons rattling in their closets. Maybe there is a chance for change since many of the politicians & prominent big name people are getting accused of chargeable offenses.

Looks like GOPedophile Roy Moore has been DEFEATED in deep red Alabama!!

The Republican hold on the Senate just got more precarious as we gear up for the 2018 midterms. ;)

Looks like the black population of voters pulled the Democrat's chestnuts out of the fire!

I heard that black women in particular really saved the day, according to the exit polls.

Like 97% broke for Doug Jones.

That's what you call a "true loyal base." ;)

I heard those stats on the radio just now, as well. 98% of black women and 90(1?)% of black men and a huge push from millennials. Very proud of you, Alabama. May this spirit be infectious.

Sidenote: there's debate about whether to hold the tax reform vote until after Jones is seated. Right now, that date falls beyond the Dec 25th deadline desired by the POTUS and republican party. It's an option, let's see if they allow it.

I'm so happy for Alabama and the rest of the country. Moore is a loose cannon who seems to be oaf the opinion that the rules and laws don't apply to him. I'd love to see him charged with whatever he can be charged with in relation to the young people he allegedly abused. Some accountability from the right would be a good thing.

Thank you, Alabama voters, for keeping that fool out of D.C. And out of our law making.
