(New York, NY) Doug Jones, the Democratic candidate for December’s Senate special election in Alabama, took a leading role in an effort by a far-left legal group massively funded by billionaire George Soros to grant full voting rights nationwide to felons released from prison, including those convicted of murder, rape, and other violent crimes.

Besides his direct role advocating for the votes-for-criminals scheme, Jones is also listed by the Soros-funded organization as a “supporter” of the voting drive for felons alongside a grouping of radical Soros-financed organizations. Jones is himself tied to some of those other Soros-funded groups.

In December 2011, Jones was one of fifteen signatories on a letter sent to Congress from the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University Law School calling for the restoration of “federal voting rights to the nearly four million Americans living, working and paying taxes in our communities who have been disenfranchised because of a criminal conviction in their past.”

The Brennan Center has been the recipient of numerous grants from Soros’s Open Society Foundations totaling over $7,466,000 from 2000 to 2010 alone.

Brennan’s letter, signed by Jones, was in support of the Democracy Restoration Act, which was introduced in 2011 by Rep. John Conyers, Jr. (D-MI) and Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD).

Conyers has a long history of association with the Democratic Socialists of America, or DSA, attending and speaking at numerous DSA events. He is a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, which was originally so closely linked to the DSA that until 1999 the Caucus’s official webpage was reportedly hosted on the DSA’s own website.
