On Wednesday, California Governor Jerry Brown, also known as “Governor Moonbeam,” signed a bill that lets felons vote from behind bars, the UK Daily Mail reported.
According to the Daily Mail:
Convicted felons serving jail sentences in California county jails will now get to participate in an activity besides three meals a day and recreation time: votingin elections.
Governor Jerry Brown signed new legislation into effect as part of a reform backers say will help prisoners transition back into society while still serving time for their crimes.
The bill he signed would let thousands of felons doing time in county jails to vote in California elections, the LA Times reported.
The new law also reinstates eligibility to vote for those ex-prisoners on probation or being kept under community supervision starting next year.
The new law goes into affect on January 1, 2017, so it won’t help Democrat Hillary Clinton — not that she’ll need any help in California, a state where Republicans are essentially an endangered species.
Not everyone is happy with the new law, however.
“It is very disappointing that felons still serving their sentences behind bars will now be able to vote since Governor Brown failed to veto this really bad bill,” said state Sen. Patricia Bates, a Republican representing parts of Orange and San Diego counties.
The Daily Mail said it was part of a larger push to expand voting rights nationwide.
What went unsaid is that it’s all part of an effort to ensure a Democrat majority for many years to come.
