WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) issued the following statement today in support of Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin’s diligence in trying to determine how convicted felon Robert Myer was able to vote in the midterm elections:

“Secretary of State Ardoin is Louisiana’s chief elections officer.  It’s his job to preserve the integrity of our elections, and he does his job well.  When a complaint was filed about a convicted felon voting after betraying the public’s trust, Secretary of State Ardoin was correct to raise questions,” said Sen. Kennedy.  “Voting is a privilege.  The voting process shouldn’t be politicized because of anger over election results or a pro-Second Amendment vote at the State Bond Commission.  Criminals shouldn’t have more rights than victims.  As a Louisiana citizen, I’m thankful to Secretary of State Ardoin for protecting the sanctity of voting in our state.”
