Harris Walks It Back on Felons Voting: Murderers, Terrorists ‘Should Be Deprived’ of Voting Rights

WFB: Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) on Tuesday walked back her comment on having a “conversation” about letting felons vote in prison, saying she believes that murderers and terrorists should be “deprived of their rights.”

CNN’s senior correspondent Jeff Zeleny reported on Twitter Tuesday night that Harris walked back her remark about Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I., Vt.) position to allow felons, including the Boston Marathon bomber, to vote.

“Clean-up in the Town Hall Aisle,” Zeleny tweeted. “A day after saying she welcomed a ‘conversation’ about inmates voting in jail, @KamalaHarris said today: ‘Do I think that people who commit murder, people who are terrorists should be deprived of their rights? Yeah, I do. I’m a prosecutor.'”

Harris, who is running for president, attended a CNN town hall in Manchester, N.H., on Monday night, where she was asked about Sanders’s contention that even terrorists should be allowed to vote.

Sanders had his own CNN town hall before Harris, in which he was asked about his position on allowing felons to vote. His answer was that the right to vote is “inherent to our democracy” and thus they should have that right.

  1. These people need to learn from Gavin Newsom – say what the polls say people want to hear, also don’t bother to run a race you can’t win. Newsom will run in 2024, it will be interesting to hear what he says to a national audience instead of a CA liberal one.

  4. My sister used to work for Elections Canada and was appalled to discover that felons have a right to vote. In the last provincial election, polls were set up in the prisons. It cost quite a bit to set up the poll and to man it from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm. Only 2 prisoners voted at one prison and nobody voted at the others. My take is that if you go to prison, that means you were a screw-up in life. Turns out, you still ARE a screw-up in prison. Perhaps Elections had the right idea, by manning the polls, then no one could claim that their rights were violated.

  5. Do Harris’s heels click clack when floor walking?
    Is there a name for that?
    You know, those important sounding clacks.
    Nancy so loves that echoing in her halls.

  6. This bitch is proof that stupid recognizes no racial definition. My German shepherds make more rational decisions than these sub-humans.
