“Hey! Let’s round up a bunch of jailbirds and have them canvass for our party! Man, when these guys suggest you vote for Democrats–boy howdy, you vote for Democrats!”
Remember that? It was a scheme to tilt Pennsylvania’s elections to Democrats. Especially Philadelphia.
For some reason, Democrats like crime and criminals. They like it a lot. For an election to be decided by the votes of convicted felons would be, to them, icing on the cake.
I find it increasingly difficult to imagine the kind of world they’ve got in mind for us.
