With all of the important issues facing this state and our nation, Peterson decides his most pressing agenda should be to make sure all of the convicted felons get to vote.....WOW, Peterson, I wonder why that is?....could it be that by the time you are up for re-election you will need every one of their votes?...heck, why don't you just write a bill that allows all of our illegal aliens to vote too!
