CNN Anchors Say Dems Wanting Prisoners to Vote Are 'Way Out There'

More than one Democratic contender managed to stun CNN anchors with their recent town hall performances. More than one candidate revealed that they may be open to letting imprisoned terrorists, like Boston Marathon Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, vote from behind bars. I give you a shocked Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon. 


"I'm stunned," Lemon said. "As you can tell from our faces."

"I think that is going to be an issue" for these Democrats, he added. Most Americans, he mused, would agree that convicted felons don't deserve to vote - not until they've paid their dues.

"It frames the proposition for voters as, 'these people are way out there in the Democratic Party,'" Cuomo said. "They've gone far left."

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), one of the Democrats who suggested she'd be open to letting the Boston bomber terrorist vote, realized the damage she may have done to her campaign and revised her answer hours later.


“Do I think that people who commit murder, people who are terrorists should be deprived of their rights? Yeah, I do. I’m a prosecutor,” she said. “There has to be serious consequences for the most extreme types of crimes.”

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), however, who said democratic rights are allowed to "even terrible people" like Tsarnaev, hasn't changed his answer.
