Governor Ratf%$# Will Veto This, of Course

A bill has passed the Maryland legislature which would grant ex-offenders the right to vote while on parole of probation.  It now goes to the desk of the newly elected Republican Governor Larry Hogan.

Gee, a restriction on voting that applies largely to communities of color that vote for Democrats.

Any guess as to what hizzonner will do?  He's already trying to defund education in Baltimore City and Prince Georges County, so I don't think that he is counting on getting much in the way of the Black vote the next time around.

He has until May 30 to veto the bill.
