Friday in New Jersey while campaign for his wife Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, former President Bill Clinton told a heckler upset about the 1994 crime bill, “You don’t have anybody you can vote for who didn’t have anything to do with this,” because at the time Hillary’s opponent Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), voted for the bill.
Clinton said, “May I answer? The crime bill, 1994, which you must be talking about, also contained a provision which no one ever mentions, which forbade first-term drug offenders from being covered by the excessive sentencing laws. Did you know that? I bet you didn’t.”
He added, “You don’t have anybody you can vote for who didn’t have anything to do with this. Listen you can write your own name in.”
