Ocasio-Cortez’s Chief-of-Staff: Criminals In Prison Should Vote Because They Are ‘Most Affected By Unjust Laws’

AOC‘s chief-of-staff: ‘Shouldn’t the people most affected by unjust laws’ be able to vote from jail?

Saikat Chakrabarti tweeted: “What’s the reason NOT to let incarcerated people vote? Shouldn’t the people most affected by unjust laws have some say in electing people to change them?”

No, it’s called “punishment.” You lose rights when you’re a felon. What’s so hard to understand about that little fact?

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) chief-of-staff Saikat Chakrabarti suggested on Wednesday that incarcerated criminals should be able to vote in U.S. elections because they are “the people most affected by unjust laws.”

Chakrabarti’s comments came after Democratic presidential candidates came out in favor of allowing terrorists, murderers, rapists, and pedophiles to vote in U.S. elections during a series of CNN town halls on Monday night.

Chakrabarti has been weighed down by scandals since entering the public spotlight with Ocasio-Cortez.

He has been accused of funneling over $1 million in political donations to his own private companies. And Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti also “obtained majority control of Justice Democrats PAC in December 2017, according to archived copies of the group’s website, and the two appear to retain their control of the group,” according to The Daily Caller.

If they have a concern about a law being unjust, here’s a thought for them… just remain law-abiding. Don’t break any laws, don’t become a criminal, don’t go to jail. Easy peasy. Once you’ve become a felon you should lose your right to vote because there are real consequences to bad behavior.

Here are a few responses to Chakrabarti’s tweet:
