Voting Rights Restoration a No-Brainer

Voting Rights Restoration a No-Brainer
Commentary by Sanford D. Horn
April 20, 2010

In response to the Post editorial last week “Virginia’s disgrace,” and all the sanctimonious hand-wringing, there is a simple solution to the problem regarding the reinstatement of felons’ voting rights.

For all those felons concerned about losing their voting rights: DON’T COMMIT THE CRIMES IN THE FIRST PLACE. No one forced these folks to commit felonies in the first place. This is not rocket surgery and does not facilitate deep contemplation.

For those who know me, this is a shock – not in the opinion, but in that it is the shortest one ever offered by me.
