VA GOV GIVES 200,000 FELONS VOTING RIGHTS; ‘MOVE TO BOOST CLINTON’


Gov. Terry McAuliffe signed an executive order Friday restoring the voting rights of 206,000 ex-felons, a sweeping action the governor said was aimed largely at rectifying Virginia’s “long and sad history” of suppressing African-American voting power.

The move, coming in a presidential election year, outraged Republicans who accused McAuliffe of abusing his power to help longtime ally Hillary Clinton win a battleground state by putting more likely Democratic voters on the books.

The governor’s order applies to all violent and nonviolent felons who had finished their sentence and supervised release as of Friday, even those who have not applied for a restoration of rights. Previous Virginia governors have restored rights on an individual basis, but none has done it for an entire category of offenders with one pen stroke.

“The interesting thing is while Obama gets blamed for not intervening enough, he’s actually intervened quite a bit in the Middle East and not to our benefit,” Paul added.

Chiming in with his own take on Clinton was also Donald Trump. The frontrunner slammed Clinton on CBS’ “Face the Nation” Sunday, saying she has blood on her hands.

Cruz Soars to Front of the Pack in Iowa Poll; Trump Support Stays Flat


-1x-1 (1)

Cruz’s new front-runner status in Iowa has been accompanied by a jump in his favorability rating, now an all-time high of 73 percent, the highest in the Republican field. That could come as a surprise to members of Washington’s establishment, who have shown disdain for him and complained that his three years there have been marked by showmanship, inflexibility and a lack of collegiality. In his campaign autobiography, A Time for Truth, Cruz’s opening anecdote recounts him becoming the target of “red-faced name calling” by his Republican Senate colleagues when he wouldn’t go along with a party vote on extending the debt limit.
