New York Cop Killer Released From Prison Will Be Able to Vote in Upcoming Election Under New Cuomo Policy

A New York cop killer who spent over 40 years in prison will be able to vote in the upcoming election thanks to a decision by Commie Governor Andrew Cuomo.

It looks like the Democrats picked up a new voter.

Fox News reported:

Herman Bell, 70, who served 44 years in prison for the murder of two New York police officers in the 1970s, was granted parole last month by the state parole board. But a fresh decision by New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo to issue conditional pardons to more than 24,000 parolees means Bell can vote in the upcoming election.

“How could he do something like that? This is a convicted felon. He killed police officers in New York,” Dianne Piagentini, the widow of one of the murdered officers, said on “Fox & Friends” Friday, noting Bell was “tried and convicted” and given “25 years to life” in prison.

Cuomo’s pardons, issued earlier this week, cover 24,086 ex-cons who are under parole supervision, including Bell. The move follows a related executive order signed by the governor last month.

In 1971, Bell, a convicted ex-gang member, murdered New York police officers Joseph Piagentini and his partner, Waverly Jones. The New York State Parole Board voted to give Bell parole in April.

Cuomo has criticized the parole board’s decision, but said the panel is not subject to his control.

“If I were on the parole board, I would not have made that decision,” Cuomo told reporters last month. “The parole board is an independent board but I would not have made that decision.”

Andrew Cuomo recently sent ICE cease and desist letters demanding they immediately stop their ‘reckless and unconstitutional enforcement actions.’

Certainly New Yorkers are comforted in the fact that their Governor defends illegal aliens and gives cop killers the right to vote.

What are the odds this cop killer will vote Democrat?
