“It is unconscionable to deny voting rights to New Yorker’s who have paid their debt and have re-entered society,” Cuomo said in a statement.
“This reform will reduce disenfranchisement and will help restore justice and fairness to our democratic process.
What’s is clearly more important is the plight of New York’s homeless.
Wouldn’t it be nice if he “Know nothings,” in Hollywood who were always giving their advice on how the country should be run, to dig in, get their hands dirty and make this situation one of their causes?
Withholding or delaying voting rights diminishes our democracy.”
No it won’t, it will just create more Democrat voters.
Someone needs to explain to Cuomo that the U.S. isn’t a Democracy, it’s a Republic.
Cuomo said that nearly three-fourths of parolees in New York are black or Latino, and allowing parolees to vote will help them to reconnect with the community.
No, it would help the Democrat party which must cheat anyway possible to win elections.
Speaking of one trick ponies, let’s not forget New York’s Mayor, Big Gulp.

The last time New York had a mayor of substance was when Rudy Giulian held the position.

Liberal logic: Voting allows one to “re-connect” with their community.
From Fox News: In an executive order signed Wednesday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo granted some 35,000 paroled felons the right to vote.
The move by the second-term Democrat came after state Republicans blocked a bill in the state Senate.
New York has not term limits for Governor, Mayor or Attorney General which means most people living there get what they deserve with the exception of my friend Linda and her husband the Marine.
“I’m unwilling to take no for an answer,” Cuomo said at the annual convention of the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network in New York City.
“I’m going to make it law by executive order.”
The new directive includes New York in a list of 14 states and the District of Columbia that allow felons to vote in elections after serving their sentence.
Hell, why don’t let them vote when they are behind bars?
But Republicans disagree and already started pouncing on Cuomo over the new measure.
Republican Senate Leader John Flanagan said Wednesday that the order was bad public policy and could potentially be illegal because the governor ignored the Legislature.
Ed Cox, chairman of the state Republican Party, in a statement, called the directive an “outrageous power grab” in a bid to appeal to “radical primary voters,” according to the New York Times.
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with having another lesbian contesting the useless governor.
Cuomo is facing an energized Democratic primary challenge from “Sex and the City” star Cynthia Nixon, who has repeatedly attacked the governor from the left and for failing to support minorities in the state.
