Trump raps Virginia gov for restoring voting rights to felons who served out sentence
Donald Trump has accused Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe of acting "illegally" to return voting rights to convicted felons who've served their sentences.

 

The GOP nominee told supporters at a midnight rally in the state that the governor is "letting criminals cancel out the votes of law-abiding
citizens."

  

He asserted that despite that "We are going to have one of the great victories of all time," comparing it to the "Brexit" vote by the UK to leave the European Union "times 50."

 

Virginia's highest court ruled in July that governors cannot restore felons' right to vote en masse, but must consider them on a case-by-case basis. That ruling invalidated a sweeping executive order issued by McAuliffe that had given more than 200,000 felons who'd completed their sentences their right to vote back.
