What do you think?
Should the Boston Bomber be allowed to vote?
Should convicted felons and violent offenders, including rapists and murderers be allowed to vote?

Here’s the GOP response:
Convicted terrorists like the Boston Marathon Bomber are the worst of our society.

Democrat Kamala Harris said the issue of felons voting in prison was “complex.” She added that there is “a lot of work to do” about restoring voting rights of 6 million people who served time and are still prohibited from voting.
“Do I think that people who commit murder, people who are terrorists should be deprived of their rights? Yeah, I do. I’m a prosecutor,” Harris said. “There has to be serious consequences for the most extreme types of crimes.”
Echo chamber colleague Democrat Corey Booker from NJ backtracked on felons voting also.
