Saikat Chakrabarti, the chief of staff for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.), on Wednesday backed Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I., Vt.) support for allowing felons to vote, asking, “Shouldn’t the people most affected by unjust laws have some say in electing people to change them?”
Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) on Tuesday walked back her comment on having a “conversation” about letting felons vote in prison, saying she believes that murderers and terrorists should be “deprived of their rights.”
This notion—of Iran and Saudi Arabia getting over their differences and “sharing” the Middle East—endured past Barack Obama’s presidency and is now an established part of left-wing foreign policy.
Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I., Vt.) foreign policy adviser Matt Duss retweeted an article profiling Mckayla Wilkes, the 28-year-old primary challenge to House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D., Md.) on Monday morning.
