1) I want the term to refer to the multitudes who, like me, probably like you, have committed felonies, many without realizing it. The list of offenses grows daily, and many are so general that they're essentially catch-alls to increase prison times for other offenses.

2) I intercepted and disclosed electronic communications, 18 U.S.C. § 2511. With an old TV.


Because the idea of a "convicted felony" being used to strip voting rights from a person when felonies are sometimes so meaningless is horrible. Practically everyone is a felon. Practically everyone could find themselves unable to vote for years, having to go through a capricious process to get that right back if they're in the wrong state.
