On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
Last week, the Virginia Supreme Court ruled against Governor Terry McAuliffe’s order to restore the voting rights of over 200,000 felons en masse. He immediately countered by promising to sign thousands of individual clemency grants anyway. While state governors have long held the right to grant individual clemency, the legal questions that first surfaced over this issue have not entirely disappeared. Kojo considers the McAuliffe administration’s move with a legal expert who can shed light on incarceration and election law.
