War room, I wanted to get your opinions on this. There are a lot of directions we can go with this one, but we can start with the basic question of should felons lose their right to vote while they remain on parole/probation/some form of community control sanction or punishment? According to the article, 441 felons illegally voted in NC. Though only one county is pursuing these cases. There is a racial element to this story, because the people being charged are African-American. NYT only gives you so many free articles a month so I’ll try to fill you guys in with some quotes. If you read the article you can get a more personal side of the story, as it focuses on the defendants. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/08/02/us/arrested-voting-north-carolina.html And in case we have any legal scholars who wanted to know the required mental state for the crime (they’re fucked). I thought this could stir up some good discussion.
