Jason G. Morgan-Foster, JD Biography

Title:
Research Scholar at The Project on Extrajudicial Executions at the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice at New York University School of Law
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:

“After an examination of the legislative history of the Fourteenth Amendment, it [this article] concludes that this [felon disenfranchisement] was not the framers’ intent; rather, they only intended the disenfranchisement of those committing crimes of rebellion or disloyalty to the State, such as treason.”
