Candidate Art Moore wants voters to believe that the reason he hasn’t voted is because of his military service and tradition that military officers should not vote. This is preposterous. The military actively encourages its members to exercise their civic duty and vote. In fact, many bases have voting officers assigned to help accomplish that.
Despite that, I would still be willing to give Art Moore the benefit of the doubt except for the fact that Moore has been out of the active military for close to nine years. For Art Moore’s excuse to hold water, we would have to believe that even members of the National Guard shouldn’t vote either. This is clearly not the case.
Art Moore should stop misleading voters and come clean about the real reasons he hasn’t voted.
