Socialist Bernie Sanders insisted that he would let the Boston Marathon bomber, sex predators, and murderers do the unthinkable.

VOTE in U.S. elections from prison.

“Would [you] support enfranchising people like the Boston Marathon bomber, a convicted terrorist and murderer?” Sanders was asked. “Do you think those convicted of sexual assault should have the opportunity to vote for politicians who could have a direct impact on women’s rights?”

“Thank you for the question, and let me just say this: What our campaign is about and what I believe is creating a vibrant democracy,” Sanders responded.

“If somebody commits a serious crime, sexual assault, murder, they’re going to be punished,” Sanders stated. “They may be in jail 10 years, 20 years, 50 years, their whole life. That’s what happens when you commit a serious crime.”

“But I think the right to vote is inherent to our democracy,” he added. “Yes, even for terrible people, because once you start chipping away … you’re running down a slippery slope … I believe even if they are in jail, they’re paying the price to society, that should not take away their inherent American right to participate in our democracy.”

Then CNN’s Chris Cuomo asked Sanders if he would support letting the Boston Marathon bomber vote from prison.

Sanders then doubled down.

“Look, this is what I believe. Do you believe in Democracy?” Sanders said. “Do you believe that every single American 18 years of age or older who is an American citizen has the right to vote. Once you start chipping away at that, believe me that’s what our Republican governors all over this country are doing.”

“I believe every single person does have the right to vote,” Sanders said.

  1. As always this poor excuse of a man is full of shit. He could not even stay in a commune for being lazy and not doing his part. AOC is just one of his followers that is just as dumb as him.. Some how neither of them have an ounce of common since.

  2. This is assinine they lost their right to.vote because they showed they could not be trusted in Society so Sanders and other Liberturds and non thinkers. No Criminals do not need the right to vote they are in prison because they choose to prey on society so they do not deserve the privilege of voting. Barnie Fief Bernie Sanders want to give criminals and Terrorist the right to vote but tax everyone earning a living more except himself 26% is what he has paid but he wants others to pay almost 50%. Bernie Sanders is a Socialist only with other people’s money and property so if you are listening to him he is a do as I say not as I do, phoney. Stop listening to these DemoCommunist they only want to live in power and have you as their servants. They will share power with no one but their fellow DemoCommunist and then not every DemoCommunist but a hierarchy of their peers they are today’s American Bolsheviks a fifth column who are working to weaken and destroy the Constitution of the United States of America, and our nation.
