Manktelow Speaks Out Against Prisoner Voting Rights

A statement from Assemblyman Brian Manktelow (R,C,I,Ref-Lyons)

“As a member of the New York State Assembly, I am completely against the state granting prisoners the right to vote. These individuals are the worst of the worst and are in prison for a reason. They have harmed, stolen, and even killed some of our loved ones. They have taken away the rights of law-abiding citizens and now we are expected to give them back the right to vote while they are still serving time for their crimes? This goes directly against all that I stand for and is something I will work against to stop.”
