" TALLAHASSEE, Fla.– In a ruling that might resound in this year's essential political elections, a federal court ruled that Florida's system of recovering ballot rights for felons who have offered their time is arbitrary as well as unconstitutional and has to be altered as soon as possible.

UNITED STATE District Court Mark Walker issued the blistering judgment Thursday in reaction to a legal action submitted in 2015 against Gov. Rick Scott by a voting rights company. Plaintiffs consist of individuals whose requests to recover their right to elect were declined despite the fact that they finished their prison sentences.

Pedestrian, who was assigned by Head of state Barack Obama, ordered both sides to offer means to treat the system by Feb. 12. His 43-page ruling blew up Scott as well as state officials for the present system to recover voting legal rights, which can take years.

" A person convicted of a criminal offense could have long earlier exited the jail cell and completed probation," Pedestrian composed. "Her ballot civil liberties, nonetheless, stay locked in a dark crypt. Just the state has the secret– but the state has actually swallowed it."

    They paid their dues with the 13th Amendment’s “Slave Labor as Punishment”. For slavery, its more than fair for voting rights and traveling rights to be restored.

    Safe enough to be on the street, but not safe enough to fill in a ballot?

    What are people afraid of? That they might elect Tru….oh wait.

    The GOP can only win elections by cheating and discrimination. Shame.shame.shame.

      Peter Wilson lmao what ever is true about liberals you accuse republicans of when will you come out of the fairy tale bullshit

    • Posted by Optimus Fine, at Reply

      deebo l Are you saying Liberals are actively denying people the vote? Last I checked, it was Republicans who were shutting down polling stations and kicking people off voter rolls indiscriminately

      Democrats can only win elections by cheating and discrimination. With their gerrymandering and push to legalize millions of illegals.

    • Posted by Optimus Fine, at Reply

      Both sides have been found guilty of gerrymandering. But Republicans are the ones wanting poll taxes (aka voter ID laws), kick people off voter rolls, and shut down polling stations. Looks like Republicans love it when less people vote. Its undemocratic and unAmerican

    They paid their debt to society.

    Every American, jail or not, should have then constitutional right to vote!

    the point about felons voting, the system bars felon’s from voting because how corrupted the system really is! once felon’s can vote and i am a felon, so I’m aware of how messed up the prison industry runs it’s “slave ship”. all the atrocities that plague the prisons will be brought to light for change. personally I feel the whole thing needs to come crashing down on politicians n law makers who flip flop for favors from private prison lobbiests

    What was that saying about taxation and representation ?

    • Posted by takethegate, at Reply

      Take your taxes and kill you if you don’t cough them up?

  8. Posted by ReapersCrow, at Reply

    That is very unconstitutional, they still have opinions that need to included especially if they’re against corruption.

  9. Posted by r2b2ct1, at Reply

    IMO the state should never have the ability to disenfranchise a citizen. Even people in prison should be allowed to vote.

  10. Posted by Flash, at Reply

    Oh no, who are these ex prisoners going to vote for? The same choices as everyone else?

    People who have completed their sentences can’t vote, but someone like Joe Arpaio can run for office? What logic is that?

    Soon crime will be legal.

    • Posted by Heath Fletcher, at Reply

      It is already is, it’s called de-regulation.

      And “affluenza.”

      Criminals don’t obey laws anyway. That’s why gun laws don’t work. Criminals don’t obey laws. Crime laws don’t work either.

      Aman Dahuginkiss …it already is in the WH….

    The GOP are “the worst sort of people”.

    Eventually, the Republican party is going to have to be OUTLAWWED, just as the Communist Party was outlawwed– IN RUSSIA.

    • Posted by Zklaus Almeida, at Reply

      The Communist Party of the Soviet Union may have been banned, but the current communist party is the second largest party in Russia

    • Posted by StuntpilootStef, at Reply

      They shouldn’t outlaw parties, they should outlaw the paying of politicians by lobby groups and corporations. And ban super pacs while they’re at it.

    In Texas I did 2yrs in prison. I had to go another 2yrs without getting into any trouble at all in order to restore my right to vote.
    I have been out of lock up now for 17 yrs and Oklahoma will not allow me to wait tables at a restraunt that has a bar and I didn’t get locked up for an alcohol related charge ! People say if you don’t like America then leave…the States will not allow me to even have a passport at this point. So how can I go anywhere ?

      Talon Shadowhawk; I hate to hear that you are being denied your rights as a citizen and human being. Are you a Face Booker ? If so, I would like to talk with you further about this matter. It is past time that people organize and take action on crap like this. You can find me on FB just by searching my name; if you want to.

    • Posted by Talon Shadowhawk, at Reply

      James Guilford no but feel free to email me at :
      TalonShadowhawk@gmail

      James Guilford let me correct myself. I have a Facebook account , but I work 2 full time jobs and rarely have the time to get online. So email is best way to reach me

    • Posted by James Guilford, at Reply

      I will be in touch.

    I think felons should be allowed to vote even while in prison. During the independence movement of India, (1857–1947), some forty thousand Indians were imprisoned. Almost all for peaceful but unlawful protests. If the United States were to experience an episode of social upheaval, it would be more important than ever that decenters/protestors NOT be denied the vote.

    • Posted by James Guilford, at Reply

      Lord Kiltridge; Holy crap; finally I have found someone who sees this issue as I
      do ! That said, we could make exceptions for 1st degree murder that is in no way related to any political matter, violent rape, true child molestation, and voting Republican !
      Yes, the Republican statement is a joke, so you repugs, don’t go gettin all hot under the collar and everything !

      Lord Kiltridge; You are not from the US, are you ?

    • Posted by Lord Kiltridge, at Reply

      No. I’m Canadian. How does this change anything?

    • Posted by James Guilford, at Reply

      Lord Kiltridge; It does not change anything, and I did not mean to imply that it did. I am from the US, and I have yet to come across anyone from here that shares my view as to this matter. Many people here, get a hard on ,at the thought of punishing not just true criminals, but anyone whom has been convicted of a ”crime” , even when said crime , should not be a crime.
      Your view of the matter is so atypical, that I suspected you were from parts other than these parts.

    What about ex-con Michael Grimm running for a government office. He can’t vote but he can be a government official?

    • Posted by Talon Shadowhawk, at Reply

      sylvania michel I am an ex con and can vote

    • Posted by Talon Shadowhawk, at Reply

      sylvania michel that guy just cannot be president but other Gov offices are ok

    If you’re not allowed to vote then you shouldn’t have to pay a penny of taxes. Otherwise it’s taxation without representation. Simple as that.

      Audrey Muzingo although I support Trump this is tru… one of the only legit statements I’ve heard come out of a democrats mouth in years

    • Posted by Audrey Muzingo, at Reply

      I’m not a Democrat but thanks.

    A felon that has completed their sentence is no longer a felon but a citizen, let’s please treat them as such.
