Thousands of Felons May Have Helped Doug Jones Win

Thousands of Felons Helped Doug Jones Win

Thousands of felons may have registered to vote in the weeks leading up to the Alabama Senate election on Tuesday, Newsweek and Breitbart has reported.

Newsweek stated that Pastor Kenneth Glasgow, a former felon himself, and a radical leftist who is the half-brother of the infamous controversial radical liberal, Rev. Al Sharpton who spearheaded the effort, said on the November 27 registration deadline that at least 5,000 to 10,000 people statewide had registered that month.

“I’ve got people all over the state registering people,” Glasgow, who is president of The Ordinary People Society (TOPS) advocacy group, told AL.com at the time. “With my TOPS branches in Tuscaloosa, Birmingham, Montgomery, Enterprise, Dothan, Abbeville, Geneva, Gordon, Bessemer, we have a lot.”

Meanwhile, Breitbart reported:

Jones himself is tied to some of the specific organizations associated with the drive to register felons here. Indeed, as Breitbart News first reported, Jones spearheaded a project for a massively Soros-financed legal activist group demanding full voting rights be given to felons released from prison, including those convicted of murder, rape and other violent crimes.

Pastor Kenneth Glasgow has been at the forefront of the statewide effort, which has successfully registered thousands of felons across Alabama in recent weeks. Glasgow has been aided in his efforts here by other Soros-financed groups, including the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

The Village Voice previously described Glasgow, Sharpton’s half-brother, as an “ex-con and recovering crackhead turned street preacher.”

Glasgow is currently president of a group he founded in 1999 calling itself The Ordinary People Society (TOPS). And he is a former leader of another organization, the radical Free Alabama Movement (FAM), which has for years been making inroads into Alabama’s prison population.

Glasgow told AL.com that in the last month alone “I think we registered at least five- to ten-thousand people all over the state” – referring to his efforts here in Alabama.

“I’ve got people all over the state registering people with my TOPS branches in Tuscaloosa, Birmingham, Montgomery, Enterprise, Dothan, Abbeville, Geneva, Gordon, Bessemer, we have a lot,” he added

Speaking on his radio program, Glasgow charged that “swarming the polls” with newly registered convicts could swing the vote, pointing as a template to the Virginia governor’s race. In that state, Gov. Terry McAuliffe used his executive power in April to restore voting rights for over 200,000 felons.

“We have the chance to do the same thing they did in Virginia,” Glasgow stated. “We can turn it blue. Well not blue, but we can add some color. Make it pink or purple.”

Glasgow has been taking advantage of a change made last May, when Alabama’s Gov. Kay Ivey signed a law that defined a clause in the State constitution denying the right to vote to anyone who has committed a crime that demonstrates “moral turpitude.”

A report by the Washington Examiner in 2014 stated that 7 in 10 felons register as Democrats, a key reason in why liberal lawmakers and governors were eager for them to get back into the voting booth after their release.

Interestingly enough, a video of a news cast was released where an unnamed person stated, “We came in from different parts of the country” to vote for Doug Jones over Roy Moore.” No one is sure if the unnamed man misspoke or his comment is legit and would raise skepticism on whether or not the Alabama Senate results involve some injection of voter fraud.
