Cuomo orders voting rights restored for parolees

William Brewer, a lawyer for the NRA, in a statement accused Cuomo and Vullo of abusing the public's trust by "mounting a blacklisting campaign that seeks to deprive Second Amendment advocates of banking services and insurance coverage in the State of NY".

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is urging companies to weigh the risk of having business ties to the NRA and similar organizations. The emergence of leftist actress Cynthia Nixon in the race for governor has triggered Cuomo to move even farther out of the mainstream on immigration, but it might not be enough to satisfy the ravenous demands of the open border groups.

The move adds NY to a list of more than a dozen states and the District of Columbia that give convicted felons the right to vote once they have completed their prison sentences.

"Despite the governor's radical interpretation, paying your debt to society and earning back the ability to exercise our most cherished right, voting, should not be granted until a felon is completely off parole and has been rehabilitated".

"I'm unwilling to take "no" for an answer", he announced Wednesday in a speech to the National Action Network's annual convention. "I'm going to make it law by executive order".

The people in question are those convicted of a felony but out on parole. "DFS urges all insurance companies and banks doing business in NY to join the companies that have already discontinued their arrangements with the NRA, and to take prompt actions to manage these risks and promote public health and safety".

The pardons "shall not be construed as a remission of guilt or forgiveness of the offense and shall not function as a bar to greater penalties for future offenses", the order said. Two states, ME and Vermont, have no felony disenfranchisement laws and even allow felons to vote while in prison, said Morgan McLeod, spokeswoman for The Sentencing Project, a non-profit advocacy group for criminal justice reform. Cynthia Nixon, his Democratic primary opponent, tweeted that Cuomo was "scared of communities all across NY who want to replace him with a real Democrat".

Cuomo's critics, however, were skeptical of the move.

A gifted Republican, even in blue state NY, could take advantage of such a political misstep.

"In order to get a 100-percent clean energy economy, the second thing we need to do is stop all new fossil fuel infrastructure..."
