Sarvis Qualifies for Ballot

Robert Sarvis received word from the State Board of Elections that he has qualified to be on the ballot for U.S. Senate this November. The Sarvis campaign submitted over 19,000 signatures to ensure 10,000, including 400 from each Congressional district, would be valid.

Sarvis Statement on Sentencing Reform

This weekend, the New York Times editorial board lamented "Bipartisan Push to Reform Sentencing Stalls in Congress."

The editorial went on to note that a vote was expected this summer on the Smarter Sentencing Act (S. 1410), but now "congressional leaders who were once confident about their chances this year are now looking toward 2015, at the earliest."

The legislation, championed by both progressives like Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and Tea Party Republicans like Rand Paul (R-KY), would cut federal mandatory minimums for drugs sentences in half, apply the Fair Sentencing Act of 2010 retroactively, and give judges greater flexibility when sentencing low-level offenders.

These modest reforms would help alleviate some of the significant problems caused by our failing War on Drugs, including racial inequities, wasteful spending, and high incarceration rates.

"It is long past time for Congress to do its job and change these outdated, ineffective and unjust laws," the Times concluded. I wholeheartedly agree.

Unfortunately, incumbent Democrat Senator Mark Warner is not one of the 25 cosponsors on this modest, bipartisan legislation -- despite a recent cosponsorship drive by Families Against Mandatory Minimums and other grassroots activists. And now it seems the effort has stalled until at least next year.

If Senator Warner supports this bill, his inaction contributed to this recent setback. If he opposes this bill, he ought to explain why to Americans laboring in prison under unjust sentences -- and their suffering families.
