Bevin behind in the polls. Day before election, Bevin substantially behind in the polls. Day after election. Hello new Republican Governor Matt Bevin, and Lt. Governor Jenean Hampton (first black person ever to win state wide election in Kentucky, a strong tea party supporter from Bowling Greene, home of Rand Paul)
That must really stick it to you socialists huh ahhahahahahahaha

When a bipartisan coalition of state legislators, and the governor agree to do that, only to have that reversed by an incoming governor after promising not to reverse that decision, and even make it part of their campaign. That makes that incoming governor a liar, and a douchebag, and the onus is on him. Not the felons who were prepared to go through the process to better their lives.

Don't try to make this about the felons. This OP is about a liar who is now governor of a state that was elected with a very low voter turn out.

This douchebag doesn't have a mandate by a majority of the citizens to do anything. And has now exposed himself as the radical right wing ideologue that he is. Hopefully the majority that wouldn't have voted for him will remedy that situation in four years.

Remember those that did not vote did not give a shit.. so it is best they did not vote. Now if they have a shit they would have voted.

They will. It usually only takes one term of a radical right wing governor to make the citizens realize they have made a huge mistake. In this case the reasons are obvious. But moot. Without those 140,000 that were lied to, a Republican won't be in the White house next year, the Dems are probably going to win back the Senate, gay marriage will still be the law of the land, including Kentucky, Planned Parenthood will still have full funding, abortion will remain easily available and an absolute right by women, the recent gun laws upheld by federal courts will remain in place.

In other words, a not so merry christmas for conservatives again next year.

Including the radical right redneck population of Kentucky.

Merry Christmas!

Nope. Fucked up, paid the required penality. Why should their voting rights not be restored?
Your position is illogical.

Class A felons, by their own actions give up the right to vote. Do you have to be a Rightwing ideologue to support the Governors decision? I would guess that there are just as many on the Left that support this decision.
