At a CNN Town Hall, Bernie Sanders says the right to vote should be extended 'even for terrible people' like Boston Marathon bomber.
"This is a democracy and we have got to expand that democracy, and I believe every single person does have the right to vote," he said.
“If somebody commits a serious crime — sexual assault, murder — they’re going to be punished. But, “I think the right to vote is inherent to our democracy. Yes, even for terrible people.”
He added: "So I believe people commit crimes and they paid the price and they have the right to vote. I believe even if they're in jail they're paying their price to society but that should not take away their inherent American right to participate in our democracy."
