Editorial: Post on voting rights for Va. ex-felons
In an editorial Wednesday, The Post's editorial board discusses voting rights for ex-felons in Virginia, writing:
... even nonviolent ex-convicts like Ms. [Jennifer] McDaniel, who have worked hard, rebuilt their lives and done all the state has asked of them, must wait three years after completing their punishments before they are eligible even to apply for the restoration of their voting rights. That is nothing short of a scandal.
A Post video interview with McDaniel was also published.
