Felon Voting Rights vs. Felons Holding Office

ClassicCarTunes
ClassicCarTunes: There seems to be an unlikely scenario available, due to the laws of our land, that a felon that is incarcerated can actually be elected to office, the House and Senate could certify that election ... but a felon that is incarcerated cannot vote in many states.

See:

and

https://www.ncsl.org/research/elections-and-campaigns/felon-voting-rights.aspx

An interesting paradox!

So Charles Manson could not have voted .. but he could have run for office!

Yes, the Senate and House would not have certified that election result but its still humorous.

ClassicCarTunes: Well actually its in the US Constitution. Has nothing to do with Republicans or Democrats.

The Congress would have blocked a killer like Manson from being elected.
