An admitted pedophile and convicted felon who spent more than a year in prison for threatening to kill President George W. Bush is legally able to run for Congress in Virginia this year because of a 2016 decision by then-Gov. Terry McAuliffe to restore voting rights to thousands of felons, FOX News reports.

Nathan Larson, 37, of Catlett is running as an independent candidate in Virginia’s 10th Congressional District. He has expressed pro-pedophilia and incest views, and, in an interview with HuffPo this week, called it “normal” for men to be attracted to underage women.
Larson has unsuccessfully sought public office before. But he had been barred from running in future elections after pleading guilty to sending the Secret Service a 2008 letter threatening to kill Bush, who was president at the time.
“I am writing to inform you that in the near future, I will kill the President of the United States of America,” Larson wrote in a Sept. 2008 email to the Secret Service. He then “laid out the reasons why he intended to kill the president and how he intended to carry out the assassination,” the Denver Post reported at the time of his conviction. The threat came at the end of former President George W. Bush’s second term, Daily Caller reported.
Larson was sentenced to 16 months in prison in October 2009 for threatening to kill the president.
Though a convicted felon, Larson is able to run once more because McAuliffe, the former Democratic governor of Virginia, restored voting rights to 13,000 felons in 2016. McAuliffe left the governorship this year after being term-limited.
Larson admitted to running a rape-obsessed pedophilia fantasy website, according to HuffPost. Larson claimed online that he had raped his ex-wife and “repeatedly expressed a desire to have sex with infants and children, including his own daughter,” HuffPost reported.
McAuliffe originally issued a blanket clemency order affecting 200,000 felons in April 2016. The state Supreme Court struck down McAuliffe’s order in July 2016, ruling that the governor’s blanket amnesty order exceeded his legal authority.
McAuliffe announced one month later that he was restoring the rights of 13,000 felons. The vice-chair of Virginia’s Board of Elections later told TheDCNF in Nov. 2016 that the true number of felons granted clemency was actually between 50,000 and 60,000. McAuliffe’s term ended in 2018.
Absolutely unbelievable. Liberals have completely gone off the deep end.
