That depends on the felony, the reason for the felony, and if the person in particular has turned over a new leaf. Would I vote for a rapist? No Would I vote for someone who once stole a car? Probably Would I vote for a murder? Probably not, it would depend on the case Would I vote for someone who had been charged with battery? Probably Would I vote for anyone who was convicted of a violent crime on a child or the elderly? Hell No So, what's the felony? Who committed the felony? Did they server their sentence without incident? What is this person like now and does he/she have the people's best interest at heart?

In the Philippines, criminals run for posts to fend of prosecution... I hope the voters will be on the lookout for this lots. Me, I wouldn't vote any candidate with questionable moral characters. Yes, they can change for the better but that's between them and God. I like to our government clean of mischievous officials.
