Jim Babcock - mug shot

I was not aware that this could be part of Jim Babcock’s consequence for angrily stealing Norm Silber’s campaign sign:

CHAPTER 664: POLITICAL EXPENDITURES AND CONTRIBUTIONS

[snip]

[Art.] 11. [Elections and Elective Franchises.] All elections are to be free, and every inhabitant of the state of l8 years of age and upwards shall have an equal right to vote in any election. Every person shall be considered an inhabitant for the purposes of voting in the town, ward, or unincorporated place where he has his domicile. No person shall have the right to vote under the constitution of this state who has been convicted of treason, bribery or any willful violation of the election laws of this state or of the United States; but the supreme court may, on notice to the attorney general, restore the privilege to vote to any person who may have forfeited it by conviction of such offenses. The general court…

So now that Jim Babcock was utterly convinced that this moronic theft of Private Property and Silencing of Free Speech was the right thing to do, he’s about to face his piper. If convicted, he’ll be stripped of his ability to vote in all future elections. Appropriate – in trying to silence Norm Silber, he will have ended up silencing himself. The hearing is August 20th.
