Good for Terry Mac

Criminal convictions shouldn't follow anyone around for the rest of their lives, in any way.
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — More than 200,000 convicted felons will be eligible to vote and run for public office in Virginia under a sweeping executive order announced Friday by Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe.

McAuliffe said his actions would help undo Virginia's long history of trying to suppress the black vote.

And kudos for acknowledging the explicitly racial (racist) element of this.
