Former Communications Director for the Washington State Senate Majority Coalition Caucus
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should Felons Who Have Completed Their Sentence (Incarceration, Probation, and Parole) Be Allowed to Vote?"
"A felon who has not met all of [his/her] legal obligations has not paid his or her debt to society in full. So why should a felon's voting rights be restored before that debt is paid?"
"ACLU's Lawsuit for Felons' Voting Rights Dishonors Crime Victims," in Human Events, Apr. 7, 2006
[Editor's Note: Individuals and organizations that do not support felon re-enfranchisement until felons have paid all fines and restitution (in addition to having completed their term of incarceration and probation/parole) are classified as Not Clearly Pro or Con. Also, those who support re-enfranchisement of some felons but not others (for example, felons who committed murder or rape) are also classified as Not Clearly Pro or Con.]
