    If they did their time and 'paid' their debt to society- why should they ever not be permitted to vote? It was reported some time ago that the highest per capita "employer" of convicted felons was the government appointments of elected Congress People. I am not sure if that stat is still true, but I would not be surprised if it were. So, if convicted elected felons can make the laws. why should convicted felons "who done their time" not be able to vote? There is no rational need to continually re-punish those that have already been punished. Who am I or anyone of else to declare that these folks no longer have the rights of any other citizen to vote or that their legal punishment was insufficient?
