Virginia governor takes a step in the right direction

The Virginia governor is taking a step in the right direction. I believe one of the elements of restorative justice is to return full voting rights to those who have paid their debts to society.

Unfortunately it is too often the poor and the uneducated who are incarcerated and the paying of court fees presents an obstacle to the poor ex-offender giving advantage of the wealthy.
