Florida Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signs bill requiring felons pay off fines before regaining right to vote

Florida felons will have to pay court-ordered financial obligations if they want their voting rights restored under a bill signed by Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis on Friday. The legislation requires those with felony convictions to pay court fees and fines to be eligible to vote.

During the spring legislative session, Democrats argued that such a restriction goes against the spirit of the constitutional amendment voters passed in November. Amendment 4, which restores voting rights for felons other than convicted murderers and sex offenders, was approved with 64.5 percent of the vote.

The language in that amendment said felons must complete their sentences. Republicans interpreted that to include restitution, court costs, fines and fees imposed by a judge at sentencing. DeSantis echoed that interpretation in a memo that accompanied the new law

It doesn't make it okay, not even close.

Actual deterrents don't come with pricey exceptions.

I know... I don't know what their logic is.

The dems will surely capitalize on this in the future.

They want illegals to vote.
Give them drivers licenses.
Helthcare.
Welfare.


Soon violent felons will be able to legally carry.
Vote.


What is the incentive to be a law abiding citizen?
Can I renounce my citizenship then come back as an illegal and not pay taxes?
