A new voting bloc?

Throughout history politicians have targeted different groups in society to get voter support: women, African Americans, and Latinos come to mind.

A former prisoner from Michigan is promoting a new group: convicted felons.

Says John Witherow, We vote the tough-on-crime idiots out of office and replace them with people interested in helping people and providing jobs, education and health care to people being released back into the community.

One of the first challenges will be to make sure that they may even vote. It is the feeling of some politicians that convicted felons have forfeited their right to cast ballots in the U.S.

Witherow is asking for your feedback on

Ex-felons are barred from certain employment and must, instead, pursue more demanding and less paying jobs so that non-felons can have the white collar jobs. I don't know about you, but I am sick of this type of b.s. and would like to develop a large-scale 13th Amendment challenge and/or claim for compensation. Until then we appear peons.

Go for it!
