Becks Breaks ‘NY Inmates To Work For Community Organizations’ Story

Glenn has just broken (in my estimation) the story about how the NY Constitution has been amended to allow prison inmates to work outside the walls for non-profit organizations through a link to Van Jones.

Part 1: Starting at 3:55

Part 2:

New York Prisoner Volunteer Proposal, Proposal 2 (2009)

The New York Prisoner Volunteer Proposal, Proposal 2 appeared on the November 3, 2009 ballot in New York as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The proposal suggested authorizing the New York Legislature to allow prisoners to perform volunteer work for nonprofit organizations.

A nonprofit organization is defined as an organization that functions for either a religious, charitable or educational purpose. Currently Article III, Section 24 of the New York Constitution prohibits the use, contract or donation of convict labor. The only exception is for state or public institutions.

  1. Chilling

    They will be OBAMA’s new Civilian Army

    PERFECT candidates for CZARS!, you think ?

    Aw, it is a process to Make room for those who refuse to buy his population control Health Insurance

    Lock up those Granny, 912 resistance terrorists instead.

    The job description for Prisoners doing community service will be getting out the dead voters, stuffing ballot boxes, stealing and forging absentee ballots, enforcement muscle at the polls, filling their trunks with votes to turn in when and where needed.

    PERFECT Acorn, SEIU, America coming together, Move on and code pink panties, employees,

    birds of a feather.

  2. speaking of MAO,

    I am Surprised that Beck did not celebrate

    Ding Dong Dunn is being thrown under Obama’s bus!

  3. and

    according to his Radio program, sounds like Beck is moving his production studio out of NY, he announced that he is shopping! and an Announcement is due next weekend in FLA !

    JUST in time you think?
