Fox news showed domestic Terrorist Bill Ayers showing up to vote ( I thought he had nothing but disdain for America and it's values?)

Yet due to election officials in several states not sending out their absentee ballots early enough for them to get their vote in

Servicemen overseas ( who usually vote predominately republican )
have the ability of their votes to be counted cast in doubt.

Guess what candidate those election officials support in this election...

These servicemen's votes would be counted in Virginia, too, which is very close as we all know.

Why should Bill Ayers not be allowed to vote? Because he disagrees with your political point of view?

Bill Ayers was never convicted and therefore has every right to cast his vote. His colorful past happened 40 years ago. Time to move on people.

Can McCain's buddy Khalidi vote? I wonder if he will support McCain though.. and he should since McCain was chair of a committee that gave his group close to 500,000. I think he forgot to tell Sarah not to bring up Khalidi's name.

He got off on a technicality
He freely admits his guilt, and stated that he wished he had done more .
he is a self admitted terrorist
who bombed and planned bombings in this country.
"colorful past " indeed


this thread is about OUR servicemen , who are overseas in the service of this Country being disenfranchised while a self admited domestic terrorist walks into the polls and votes.

Nobody should be defending Bill Ayers. His book Prairie Fire is dedicated to Sirhan Sirhan, the Robert Kennedy assassin. The guy is an equal opportunity terrorist.

Technicality? You mean the illegalities commited by the criminal Nixon
DoJ?


He has stated he wished he'd done more to "STOP THE VIETNAM WAR" BRAVO!

And just in case you're ignorant of the law, he's a citizen with the right to vote, whether you or any other wing-nut doesn't approve.

Please cite a reputable source for your allegation.

Everything I find says the book was dedicated to political prisoners, not a murderer.

You are correct, the book is dedicated to political prisoners, then it proceeds to give a list of 100 or so names. Sirhan Sirhan is one of them.
