JACKSONVILLE, Fla.The bumpy path of Desmond Meade’s life meandered to its current interesting point. He is a graduate of Florida International University law school but cannot vote in his home state because his path went through prison: He committed nonviolent felonies concerning drugs and other matters during the 10 years he was essentially homeless. And Florida is one of 11 states that effectively disqualify felons permanently.
"There’s No Good Reason to Stop Felons from Voting" is from the April 06, 2018 Opinion section of The Washington Post. It was written by George F. Will and narrated by Sam Scholl.
