Democrats all over America were horrified this week when Donald Trump has passed Hillary Clinton in the polls. Now, Democrats in the always-liberal state of California have resorted to desperate measures to rig the election for Clinton.
According to The Political Insider, California Governor Jerry Brown approved a measure this week that will allow FELONS in his state to vote in the presidential election. Brown approved the legislation on Thursday after it was passed by Democrats in the state legislature despite the fact that it faced widespread opposition from law enforcement. The bill will allow thousands of felons in county jails to vote in California elections as part of an effort to speed their transition back into society.
The bill was presented by Assemblywoman Shirley Weber (D-San Diego), who said it would reduce the likelihood of convicts committing new crimes.
“Civic participation can be a critical component of re-entry and has been linked to reduced recidivism,” Weber said when the bill was first introduced.
After Brown signed off on the bill, Weber boasted that California is setting an example at a time when other state’s are trying to limit voting rights.
“I wrote AB 2466 because I want to send a message to the nation that California will not stand for discrimination in voting,” Weber said, according to The LA Times.
Sen. Patricia Bates (R-Laguna Niguel) spoke out to slam the new law, lamenting that it will undermine the integrity of elections by allowing people in jail to decide close contest.
“It is very disappointing that felons still serving their sentences behind bars will now be able to vote since Governor Brown failed to veto this really bad bill,” Bates said in a statement.
California is a predominantly liberal state, so the more voters they can bring in, the better it will be for the Democrats. SHARE this story if you are SICK of Democrats rigging this election for Hillary Clinton!
