From Michael Moore --

3. Please, tell us the "felony" you committed and anything else of a similar nature that you have been hiding. When you were asked last year about your alleged cocaine use, you replied that you have committed "no felonies in the last 25 years." That implies that you DID commit a felony before that. What was the felony?

I thought convicted felons could not vote in America "because of rebellions and other crimes." Are felons not disenfranchised from voting in Texas?

In my state of Massachusetts one of the referenda on todays ballot was...Banning felon voting.

It read as; An amendment to the state constitution that would prohibit incarcerated felons from voting for govenor, state representative, state senator, U.S. representative, U.S. senator, secretary of state, state auditor, treasurer, governor's councilor and attorney general. Massachusetts is one of only three states that allows its incarcerated felons to vote via absentee ballot.

If Bush is a convicted felon, how can he vote?

Bush was convicted of a felony? I must have missed the newsflash. Uh, you do realize, don't you "Civics, that committing a felony and being convicted of a felony are two separate issues don't you?

The simple answer to your stupid question is that he can vote because he IS NOT a convicted felon. He was convicted of a misdemeanor. There is a significant difference. Get your facts straight.
