Murderers, Kidnappers and Sex Offenders Released from Cuomo’s Parole Board, Granted Pardons for Voting Rights
New York–October 2nd…The NYGOP today released a new web entitled “Scary Truth” highlighting Cuomo’s parole board releasing dangerous felons and his new policy granting them pardons so they could vote before his heated Democratic primary last month.
The ad will be aired on digital platforms downstate and comes amid senate hearings examining the Governor’s dangerous policy. Cuomo has granted his first round of conditional pardons to more than 24,000 parolees and 488 are already recidivists, having either committed a new crime or violated their parole, including three who were originally convicted of murder, four of manslaughter and 47 who committed a sex crime. Cuomo’s policy allowed sex offenders to vote in schools in September’s Democratic primary.
“Andrew Cuomo has gone so far to the radical left, he’s opened up prison cells to allow cop killers, child murderers and rapists to go free,” said NYGOP Chairman Ed Cox. “To add insult to injury, he’s granted them pardons that would give them coveted voting rights while nearly 500 felons have already committed another crime or violated their parole. Governor Cuomo is not only making us less safe, but it’s an outrageous slap in the face that he cares more about felons than law-abiding taxpayers.”
