How nice of him. Now maybe he can pay the medical bills of the hardworking Americans who have been devasted by losing their jobs with a severe illness which they had no control over.

SGT (Join to see) Bloomberg is an idiot. I thought felons were not allowed to vote unless their rights were restored.

You are only partially correct. After the amendment was passed, it required a law to implement it. The law approved the return of right to vote, but the stipulation was they had to pay off court fines and other fees including if they had to reimburse the victims. Democrats fought this but the courts ruled that it was reasonable.

We overwhelmingly passed a law to restore their voting rights and that scared state GOP so, after the fact, they passed a law that said despite what voters wanted felons had to pay all fines first. Interestingly many counties didn't have the faintest idea what fines were owed so those felons could vote. But for those who had known listed fines Bloombergs action now allows these people to do as the voters wanted. If allowing people to do as voters wanted makes someone an idiot in your mind, so be it!
