Does anyone else have concerns about the constitutional amendment on the ballot this November?
After voters tossed all the felons out of every sheriff's primary this past May, the NC General Assembly still felt it necessary to use a bazooka to kill a gnat.
It's that unconditional banishment from office that bothers me.
This seems like gross overkill from the legislature, particularly taking convictions -- or even pleas of no contest -- from other states. These days that could mean an overzealous prosecution for protesting outside a "free speech zone" our federal overlords may set up at a party convention (coming to Charlotte?).
It seems everything is a felony these days.
Someone make me feel better about this, because right now, I'm voting against it.
