A very silly editorial

This is a very silly editorial. To equate disenfranchisement of felons with disenfranchisement women or blacks is absurd and offensive. Race and sex are immutable characteristics. Committing a felony is behavior. Totally different things.

Now, there are persuasive arguments to be made in allowing felons to vote. People who have paid their debt to society and are trying to be good citizens should not be automatically disenfranchised. But Daniel Nichanian cripples his own argument by equating criminal behavior with race and sex. That argument is offensive, misogynistic and racist.
