Virginia: AutoPen Clemency On the Way

The Washington Post reports Gov. Terry McAuliffe "will announce Monday that he has restored voting rights to 13,000 felons on a case-by-case basis." The awkwardness of that phrase is the by- product of the the state's Supreme Court stopping "his more sweeping clemency effort." The Post reports:
Immediately after that ruling, McAuliffe vowed to use an autopen to individually sign orders restoring rights. He promised to do the first 13,000 within a week and all 200,000 within two. 
The Post also says a substantial majority" of Virginians "approve of McAuliffe’s original effort to restore felon rights." See story here.
