Prosecutor Says 6 Felon Voting Cases Will Proceed

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - A prosecutor pursuing several cases against felons charged with voting illegally says an Iowa Supreme Court ruling shouldn't impact them.

Assistant Black Hawk County Attorney Linda Fangman said Thursday the prosecutions will "proceed as is" despite Tuesday's ruling suggesting that not all felons lose their voting rights. She's handling felony election misconduct cases against six offenders accused of voting in the 2012 election despite having lost their rights. A seventh may plead guilty Monday.

Critics such as the American Civil Liberties Union of Iowa say such prosecutions are on shaky footing following the ruling in which justices couldn't agree on which felony crimes lead to disenfranchisement.

Three justices ruled that only felonies that raise concerns about elections integrity strip offenders of their rights. Two others said all felonies should.
