Listen: Lipton Matanza, Assault And Boston discussed on Red Eye Radio
"Sanders. You have said that you if the people with felony records should be allowed to vote while in prison does this mean that you would support enfranchising people like the Boston marathon bomber a convicted terrorist and murderer. Do you think that those convicted of sexual assault should have the opportunity to vote for politicians who could have a direct impact on women's rights? Okay. Thank you for the question. And. Let me just say this. Okay. Before we get to it. The next minute is him hitting on Republicans before he actually answers which has nothing to do with the actual question. Right. What our campaign is about? And what I believe is creating a vibrant democracy today, as you may know, we have one of the lowest voter turnouts of any major country on earth. I want to see us have one of the highest voter turnouts. And by the way, what we're seeing is more young people getting involved in the political process, but not enough, and in my view, if young people voted at the same percentage that older people voted in this country. We would transform this nation. But to get to your point we live in a moment where cowardly Republican governors trying to suppress the vote to answer your is he answering her question. I haven't heard an answer to occur question. Again. Let let's continue. He eventually does. But when he prefaced it with Lipton Matanza your question cowardly, Republican governors. I don't think she even mentioned Republicans in this at all here are right here as you may know into Hampshire the legislature and the governor a working hard to make it more difficult for young people to vote and to me that is incredibly undemocratic un-american process. And I say to those people by the way, if you don't have the guts to participate in free and fair elections, you should get another job and get out of politics. All right. So we got. All right. So there's the clamping for what what what's he talking about? I don't know. I haven't heard an answer yet to her question. Do you have any idea? I I have no idea what he is actually asking a about here. Hang on. If you could if you could lower my volume for for a second shape that because I had some problems with the audio cut. But we'll get back to it here in just a a couple of of seconds. But as to that point he never answered the question, but brought up Republicans. But still never asked answer the question as to whether he would actually vote that way or not I want to get back to what he was actually talking about the let's get back to more of it. We'll play it in its entirety but difficult for young people to vote and to me that is incredibly undemocratic un-american process. And I say to those people by the way, if you don't have the guts to participate in free and. Fair elections. You should get another job and get out of politics. All right. So we got."
