Boston Marathon First Responder Slams Bernie Sanders’ ‘Ridiculous’ Defense of Bomber’s Voting Rights

"I feel like, at that point, you have broken a bond and a compact with your fellow Americans".

During a CNN town hall, Sanders said felons in prison should be able to vote, even violent criminals and terrorists like the Boston Marathon bomber. Sen.

President Donald Trump on Thursday evening dismissed some of the key 2020 Democratic nominees with a few words during a lengthy phone call to Fox News' Sean Hannity that was broadcast live on television.

Vermont and ME are the only states that allow incarcerated felons to vote, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. "We know that African Americans didn't have the right to vote".

Sanders said his campaign seeks to create a vibrant democracy, starting with the rights of all people to participate in the voting process. For example, during the 2016 midterm elections, Florida voters approved Amendment 4, which restored voting rights for people convicted of felonies as long as they had completed their sentences (people convicted of murder or felony sex offenses are excluded). "Remember the poll taxes all across this country denying poor people the right to vote".

'But, I think the right to vote is inherent to our democracy.

The former vice president is dominating in national polls for the 2020 Democratic primary.

He went on to say losing the right to vote is part of the punishment when someone is convicted of a crime. So I believe that people commit crimes, they pay the price. Bernie Sanders, Trump criticized his record, saying Sanders had "misguided energy" and asserted that Sanders "talks a lot" but hasn't accomplished anything. "Yeah, I do", she said.

Sanders, also a presidential hopeful, said Monday at a CNN Town Hall that he thinks everyone should have the right to vote.

" Whether it has been calling out Trump or fighting for issues like Medicare for All, free college tuition, and ensuring our immigrant brothers and sisters are being treated with respect, Bernie Sanders has shown a commitment to improve the lives of Latinos in this country", said Faiz Shakir, manager of the Sanders campaign.

The big gainer in the April poll was South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who jumped from less than 1% support in the previous poll to 8% in the latest one. "You lose your freedom".

"The goal that we have got to establish is to bring our people together around an agenda that speaks to all people", Sanders said to the audience at Texas Southern University before getting lost in a lecture about minimum wage. "This is a democracy, we've got to expand that democracy, and I believe that every single person does have the right to vote". "And I think during that period, it does not make sense to have an exception the right to vote." Sen. "And I know what state I'm in, we are going to take on Trump and the fossil-fuel industry".

When Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) was pressed for comment on the issue, her response contrasted with Sanders.
