Outrageous, Cuomo Returns Right to Vote to Sexual Predators and Pedophiles

July 24, 2018

A few weeks ago, Gov. Cuomo announced his plan to grant pardons to certain criminals, restoring their right to vote. Now some of the recipients have been revealed to be 77 sexual predators released from prison but confined to state psychiatric wards. Among them are rapists, pedophiles, sexual predators and violent sexual criminals who courts deemed too dangerous to be fully released.

“Extending these pardons to sexual predators is a public travesty,” DiPietro said. “The governor should be ashamed, the right to vote should not be granted back to those deemed too dangerous to re-enter society after their prison terms. It would be a laughable grab for votes if it weren’t so depraved.”
