Ocasio-Cortez backs giving prisoners voting rights [View all]

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Thursday voiced her support for giving incarcerated felons' voting rights, while warning opponents they risked “looking completely + utterly out of touch w/ the reality [of] our prison system.”

"To avoid looking completely + utterly out of touch w/ the reality our prison system: Instead of asking, “Should the Boston Bomber have the right to vote?” Try, “Should a nonviolent person stopped w/ a dime bag LOSE the right to vote?” Bc that question reflects WAY more people," Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) tweeted.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) sparked national discussion about voting rights for felons in jail during a CNN town hall Monday.

The 2020 candidate said that all prisoners, including domestic terrorists such as the Boston Marathon bomber, should retain the right to vote.
