Should a politician who has been formerly convicted of a crime be allowed to run for office?

  • It depends on the crime, but mainly no.

    It isn't a wise idea to have people convicted of criminal acts be in politics, as many politicians are corrupt as it is. So why should we trust a person who has already been caught doing illegal things? If crime means "crime" as in "felony offense" they shouldn't be allowed to run for office, misdemeanor charges like DWI or shoplifting aren't really a big deal though.
