The Republican National Committee blasted Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif. for being open to Sen. Bernie Sanders I-Vt., suggestion that everyone should have the right to vote – even the Boston Marathon bomber.
At a CNN Town Hall, Sanders, who is running for president, argued democracy demands that right for every American.
Asked if he believed that should include sex offenders, the Boston Marathon bomber, terrorists and murderers, Sanders replied, “Yes, even for terrible people…”
A short time later, Harris, who also is making a White House run, was asked at her CNN town hall session, if she agreed with Sanders.
“I think we should have that conversation,” she said. CNN posted a video of her remarks on its Twitter account.
But in an email blast, the RNC took issue with the Democrats.
“2020 Democrats continue to show that there is no radical policy supported by Bernie Sanders that they will not endorse,” said Steve Guest of the RNC. “Minutes after Bernie said that he would let terrorists vote from jail, Kamala Harris said “we should have that conversation” about allowing the Boston Marathon bomber to vote from prison. Instead of endorsing Bernie’s extreme policies, Democrats should be condemning them."
