Apparently the state of Iowa is going after felons who voted. Here is a case of an ex-felon charged with perjury:
“Prosecutors say 40-year-old Kelli Jo Griffin falsely claimed on a voter registration form last year that she was not an ineligible felon before voting in the municipal election of her town, Montrose. Prosecutors say she’d been disenfranchised by a 2008 felony drug conviction and Gov. Terry Branstad hadn’t restored her rights.”
I disagree with this. I think it would be a good thing for ex-felons to participate in the political process, as I think it would tend to help integrate them back into society.
