Despite myths, most ex-cons still eligible to vote

Full story: Lebanon Daily News

Until recently, a county government Web site in western Pennsylvania erroneously stated that felons must be out of prison five years before they can vote.

What a group of comments. I served time, I also served my country. I have been a productive member is society since my release. I can also name quite a few others, who have done the same. Anyone who says it can't happen or usually doesn't happen is not as educated as they think. History supports this statement, what supports yours. Because I sold drug addicts drugs, in a drug infested neighborhood, I am somehow less than anyone else. I thought I was feeding my family and paying bills. Does that erase me serving my country? Do my 7 years serving my city, since my release not count because I'm a felon. Shortsighted people shouldn't talk or log in public.

Diggedy, I'm sure you are right, and I'm proud of you for turning things around in your life! Lots of people don't. We got off track because we were talking about a convict who, before going back to prison again for the umpteenth time, posted here and his post was filled with lies. He is a Viet Nam vet but he was court martialed. He's an awful human being and citizen, and I for one do not think he should ever vote again.

To "PA voter"....do you know Joseph Andreoli? Were you scammed by him too? If you do, please post a comment. He is back in prison and I know for sure he is trying to scam women again.

Thank you so much!

Kate, write me @ ritagaymcmillan@gmail.com. Please use the city where Joey grey up in your title line so I will know it is you.

We're getting there. Hold on. It won't be much longer. I advise that you not write him back until we have exchanged information. I have some ideas.

Hope to hear from you soon!

Dear Sheik??? perhaps you applaud such behavior in a man toward a woman in your country. Oh -yeh, albei a country where woman are subservient and have their feet and hands cut off if they speak. Go and get your green card and keep your un-ameri can views on females in your country, not ours...in our USA...we treat women with respect and we do not let men with your mentality abuse us mentally nor physcially. ONLY and I do mean ONLY someone with your name would be so pretentuous to comment back that women are to be obedient and not speak badly of a man! Do you have daughters??? If so, then I will pray for them before you sell them off to the best bidder!

How interesting. Even convicted felons are still citizens of the US.

So then... I'd like to hear what your cut off point would be for US citizens to vote. Murderers? Extortionists? Ponzi Schemers? Burglars? Motor Vehicle violations? HOA violation? Failure to overtly express your patriotism via a flag pin or bumper sticker?

So yeah, let's deprive those who don't care about our laws one of the smallest ways to let them have an influence - voting.

It's not like the US has a large percentage of citizens sent to jail, right?

And there's no correlation of the private sector prison for profit free market would never try to increase demand for prisoners by immoral methods or just outright lobbying for laws to improve their bottom line.

Grace,

I just saw your post. I'm sorry if you've been waiting to hear from me. I was with Joey for 4 years while he was at Mahanoy. I sent him money, love letters, etc. When he got out he went to what he called his "wife". But I do know she is a lot older than he is. Yes, I do know he has a dog named Boots. He has broken many hearts and is so flippant about it! If you want to write me you certainly may at: ritagaymcmillan@gmail.com. Please do not tell him we are in contact because I am writing him again now...seeking revenge! When he went to Mahanoy the 2nd time, we wrote again, and I pretended to still care for him, but only so I could put the knife in, and I did! I asked him to sent me details on how I could smuggle drugs into prison for him. He sent it and I sent it to the warden. I spent 6 mos. in the hole. "Hell knows no fury like a woman scorned"!

Do NOT trust him! He is only out for himself, and he will say anything to get your money! Please do contact me!!

Kate, are you sure you can trust your friend to give you my messages, the friend whose computer you are using? Does she know Joey? Did you know he and Fran lived on Colgate Street before they moved to Fl? I wonder why you haven't gotten back with me yet?

I did let the creep know that shit is about to hit the fan, but I didn't tell him what would happen or the source. I did something wonderful for the cause this morning. Can't wait to tell you!

Dixie
