Goins and crew clean them out. This is why Republican control is so important. These felon voters have been there for years. No one did the work to clean the files.
From the KNS article....
"Part of our job is to instill confidence in the electoral process. ... We're excited to have this new tool."
Mackay said he plans to turn over the list of felons who have registered or voted to the Knox County District Attorney Generals Office. It will then be up to prosecutors to determine if they should be prosecuted criminally, he said.
"We don't know if they committed a crime or not," Mackay said.
It seems the tool has been there for years. It was just never put to work. The team of Hargett/Mark Goins and crew did the research and had the information sent to the locals for them to purge their files.
As for if it is a felony or not, it is.
Giving false information to register to vote or attempting to register
when not qualified is a felony punishable by not less than one (1) year
nor more than six (6) years’ imprisonment or a fine of $3,000 or both.
We will see if action to prosecute is taken. It seems pretty cut and dry to me.
