Talk about a powerful 1-2 punch. LeBron James and Michael Jordan joined a group of celebrities to shoulder around $27 million in fines and fees to allow felons in Florida to vote.
According to Tampa Bay Times:
Nearly 13,000 felons could now be eligible to vote due to the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition supported by LeBron and businessman Michael Bloomberg. Other high-profile personalities who gave hefty donations include Michael Jordan and Ariana Grande.
