On Friday state Senator Bryce Reeves, a candidate for Lt. Governor, sent a FOIA request to Governor McAulliffe for all correspondence between the Governor and the Clinton campaign about the Governor’s restoration of voting rights to 206,000 felons.
â€œToday, Iâ€™m filing a request for all communication between the Governorâ€™s Office and the Clinton Campaign regarding the restoration of voting rights for felons. Governor McAuliffeâ€™s rushed order to give felons voting rights is motivated by his desperate attempt to help Hillary Clinton win Virginia in the fall. Sex offenders who are â€œtoo dangerous to releaseâ€ should not be bused to schools and churches at taxpayer expense so they can vote for Hillary Clinton. The Governor needs to start doing whatâ€™s in the best interest of Virginians- not the Clinton campaign.â€
It will be very interesting to see if McAuliffe responds and provides what Senator Reeves has requested. Â My guess is McAuliffe will ignore the request. Â I hope I’m wrong.
