Republican Presidential Candidates on Voting Rights for "Felons"

During Monday night's republican presidential debate two of the candidates faced off on the issue of (former) prisoners voting rights.

Romney & Santorum clashed over whether or not those who have served their time are entitled to regain their voting privileges. While Santorum was for the restoration of voting rights, Romney, when pressed, stated that he did not believe past felons should be allowed to vote.

Romney was quoted as saying " "I don't think people who have committed violent crimes should be allowed to vote."
