Iowa Defense Alliance: Vote no on Iowa's constitutional amendment

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Defense Alliance

The people of Iowa have an opportunity to vote on a proposed amendment
to the Constitution of the State of Iowa. The proposed change in the
constitution would change the wording of Section 5 of Article II of
the constitution. The current wording of the constitution reads that
"No idiot, or insane person, or person convicted of any infamous
crime, shall be entitled to the privilege of an elector." ... We do need
an amendment to change the wording of this section of the Iowa
Constitution. It can be offensive to individuals that suffer from
mental handicaps and the family that love them. However I do not think
that this amendment is the one to do so. While the originators of this
constitutional amendment have nothing but good intentions with the
promotion of it, they seem to have failed at thinking it through
completely.
