Opportunistic identity politics queen Kamala Harris is rapidly backing away from controversy over an idea that she endorsed.
During Monday’s marathon town hall on CNN, the junior senator from California was down with allowing terrorists and other criminal scum to be able to vote from prison.
She specifically sided with the Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev who in 2013 killed three and maimed hundreds of innocent victims.

The idea of allowing such vermin to vote has been championed by commie kook Bernie Sanders and it wasn’t the first one of the old crank’s positions that she has appropriated.
But this one isn’t as much a crowd pleaser as Medicare for all and eliminating the private insurance industry and she quickly discovered just how batshit that it was.

Via The Daily Wire ”Kamala Harris Changes Tune About Letting Terrorists Vote In Less Than 1 Day”:
Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) changed her tune about letting convicted terrorists vote less than 24 hours after being asked the question during a CNN town hall on Monday night.
CNN’s Don Lemon asked Harris if she supported comments made earlier in the night by socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who said that convicted terrorists, including the Boston Marathon bomber, should be allowed to vote in U.S. elections while in prison.
“Another issue that I want to talk to you about — this is really important — I’m not sure if you were watching earlier, but Senator Bernie Sanders said that he is in favor of felons being able to vote while serving in prison,” Lemon said. “He was asked specifically about people like the Boston Marathon bomber, also people who are convicted of sexual assault. And he said, this is a quote, ‘The right to vote is inherent to our democracy, yes, even for terrible people.’ Do you agree with that, Senator?”
“I agree that the right to vote is one of the very important components of citizenship and it is something that people should not be stripped of needlessly, which is why I have been long an advocate of making sure that the formally incarcerated are not denied a right to vote, which is the case in so many states in our country, in some states permanently deprived of the right to vote,” Harris responded.
“But people who are in — convicted, in prison, like the Boston Marathon bomber, on death row, people who are convicted of sexual assault, they should be able to vote?” Lemon pressed.
“I think we should have that conversation,” Harris responded.
Less than 24 hours later, Harris appeared to have changed her tune, telling a group of reporters: “Do I think that people who commit murder, people who are terrorists should be deprived of their rights? Yeah, I do.”
She is truly an empty pantsuit and yet she may be the front runner for the nomination.
God help us!
