Kentucky Tonight - Voting Rights

DSCN5019_3


Voting Rights will be on Kentucky Tonight on KET tonight at 8pm EST (7pm Central).  If you have a chance to watch and call in, I think it would make a big impact.

Please pass the word along!

Guests:
- State Rep. Jesse Crenshaw, D-Lexington
- State Rep. Joseph Fischer, R-Fort Thomas
- David Stengel, commonwealth's attorney for Jefferson County
- Chris Cohron, commonwealth's attorney for Warren County and president of the Kentucky Association of Commonwealth's Attorneys

Questions that focus on themes of Democracy and fairness would be great.  We have to challenge the notion that this is an issue that's just about "criminals" (something having two prosecutors as guests reinforces).  To the degree that this is a criminal justice issue, though, it's about crime prevention because voting is highly correlated with low recidivism rates.

I think it'd be especially powerful to have people from Bowling Green (Cohron's area) or Fischer's district in Northern Kentucky to call in.
