Will John Hinckley have voting rights restored by Virginia Governor McAuliffe?
By John W. Lillpop
Just as the Democrat Party was in the final stages of nominating Hillary Clinton for the US Presidency, liberal mainstream media types are celebrating the fact that the glass ceiling is finally being shattered in yet another US first!
Indeed, Mrs. Clinton is the first known, practicing criminal to be the standard bearer for either party!
She is also a woman. which apparently is more important than her incompetence and wretched criminal history.
To highlight this special, historic event, attorneys loyal to Clinton and progressive principles in general, arranged for John Hinckley, the man who tried to assassinate President Ronald Reagan in 1981, to be released from a government mental hospital where the would-be-killer has been detained for the past 35 years.
It is worth noting that Hinckley may be eligible to have his voting rights restored by Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe who has a world-class talent for turning convicted felons into Hillary Clinton voters. Although McAuliffe's attempt to restore voting rights for 200,000 felons with a single Executive Order was ruled unconstitutional, the determined Democrat continues to add convicted felons to the Democrat voting block on an individual basis.
John Hinckley would appear a perfect candidate for the McAuliffe scheme, given the fact that Hinckley did his damned best to end the Reagan revolution before it really got started!
