Boston Herald Biography

Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should Felons Who Have Completed Their Sentence (Incarceration, Probation, and Parole) Be Allowed to Vote?"
Reasoning:

“An argument can be made that felons who have paid their debt to society have earned a degree of reinstatement and enfranchisement back into that society, but criminals like [Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar] Tsarnaev have not remitted such payment — their transaction is still in progress.”
