After Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said mass murders should be able to vote from prison, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Sanders should visit to explain to its citizens why a man convicted of killing nine people attending church in his state should get the vote.

In consecutive tweets on Tuesday, Sen. Graham condemned Sanders’ Monday night town hall declaration and called on Sen. Sanders to visit his state to defend it:

“Just when you thought it couldn’t get worse.... @BernieSanders supports allowing rapists, murderers, and terrorists – like the Boston bomber and Dylan Roof, the individual who massacred 9 church-goers in Charleston, to vote from prison.”

“I look forward to hearing his explanation -- in South Carolina -- why Dylan (sic) Roof should be allowed to vote in the upcoming elections.”

In 2017, Dylann Roof was sentenced to nine consecutive life sentences on state charges after he confessed to the 2015 murder of nine attendees at a South Carolina church.
