… Go For It !! [#Va GOP][#voting rights fight]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,June 2nd,2016

.. the Virginia GOP is going to court [state court , to be specific] in order to block the action of Gov. Terry McAuliffe . McAuliffe recently signed an executive order that by , en masse , restored the various rights of ex – convicts . A fair number of those folks are likely to be minorities ..

.. my understanding comes from having read a number of articles on the subject . It seems that these ex – cons have to apply themselves , to the Governor , in order to restore their rights . For the Governor to do so , he must do so on a case by case basis only ..

.. [h/t —]..

.. the U.S. Constitution basically allows for Presidents to do this en masse . Some of them have done so . State Constitutions though are a good bit different . They have string attached , putting restrictions on what a Governor can do . My state of Ohio is like that ..

.. But Virginia is one of the oldest , and it has undergone changes , over time ..

.. so McAuliffe has overstepped his bounds ..
