Yes, as long as it was not a felony, violent, financial, or sexual crime

@ISIDEWITHDiscuss this answer...6yrs

No, and disallow politicians that are under investigation for a crime

@965VQK2 answered…4hrs

Depends on the crime. Laws are subject to change, so long as it wasn't murder or sexual in nature.

@964VVWY answered…19hrs

Yes, after an acceptable period, if rehabilitation can be demonstrated

depends on the circumstance of the crime convicted and how bad it was , but again no politician should run an office with a criminal history

@95DKJGY answered…3wks

Depends on the severity of the crime. Everyone deserves a second chance.

Yes and as long as they have finished serving their sentence. But, disallow them who are under investigation for a crime.

@93Z3CH4 answered…2mos

I feel like the office and other people should discuss if they should run first, to see if their crime was as bad.

@93Y5QK8 answered…2mos

Depends on what the crime is, if it has the potential to damage a society then no

@93WL2N5 answered…3mos

i think they should be able to be apart of the election because everyone does make bad a poorley made decisions in their life time at some point and everyone deserves a second chance.

@93VBFR2 answered…3mos

Depending on the crime, if it is something like stealing bread or something small, yes, if rape no.

@9383K2P answered…4mos

Yes, but it also depends on the crime if it's serious probably NO!

@9369HZF answered…4mos

@935R8KW answered…4mos

Yes, depending on the crime committed as long as they have reformed and finished their sentence.

@9356YM4 answered…5mos

More politicians should be convicted and procedures for their crimes

@9352ZTN answered…5mos

Yes, as long as the crime is not going to effect their tenure. Example: a politician who has swindled money should not be allowed to take office where finances are concerned.

@934V289 answered…5mos

Yes, but the public and everyone should know of the crime and consider that when making important decisions.

@934PYGP answered…5mos

Yes, but this should be considered on a case by case basis, within reason.

@934P37ZLiberal answered…5mos

Yes, as long as they have a proven record of being a reformed character

@934L674 answered…5mos

@9346PS9 answered…5mos

Depending on how long ago the crime was committed, what the crime was (something stupid done as a teenager or an abuse of authority) and whether that behaviour reflects in them now (this is kind of hard to tell as it can be somewhat concealed). Allow the citizens to make up their minds on their own as other runners may be just as bad or worse in terms of policy and endangering people. Sort of encompasses all of the above options.

Any crime that is, felony that is a political crime, sexual abuse, or financial crime as well as violent.

@933XP22 answered…5mos

@933X468Liberal answered…5mos

No they should not because they could do stuff that could hurt people.

@933WLGDLabor answered…5mos

@933VHD6 answered…5mos

A nuanced approach involving a type of jury and judges should be used.

@933Q635 answered…5mos

Yes, as long as the crime was not one that caused harm or trauma to others. Only small previous crimes should be allowed eg. petty theft
