RICHMOND, Va. (AP) – Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe says he’s restored voting rights to more felons who have completed their sentences than any other governor.McAuliffe announced yesterday he’s restored voting and other civil rights to 156,000 felons, surpassing a total set by former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist’s administration.Last April McAuliffe issued an executive order restoring the voting rights of more than 200,000 felons at once. But the Virginia’s Supreme Court struck down that order months later, ruling that governors cannot restore rights en masse but must handle them on a case-by-case basis.After the ruling, McAuliffe began restoring individual rights under a new process.The governor, a Democrat who is set to leave office in January, has said he views his rights restoration efforts as one of his most important legacies.
