Violent felon who fraudulently entered fraternity does not have restoration of civil rights

Verify by using the information (public record purchased from and provided by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement)  listed below in the above link.

Name:  James Anderson Foster

Date of Birth:  12/17/1960

Florida Department of Corrections Identification Number:  0144204

The Masonic Digest of the State of Florida allows few concessions per felons in Freemasonry:  convicted felons must provide proof of completion of sentence/punishment and restoration of civil rights upon submittal of a  membership petition. Only when the Craft has been made aware of the criminal history can the felon be presented for ballot.

But what about a violent felon who lied to gain membership?

What about failure to conduct a background investigation in accordance with regulations set forth in the Digest of Masonic Law of the State of Florida?

What about those who’ve borne the turmoil wrought during the felon’s decade long deceit and fraud?

What’s to be said of a Grand Master who allegedly met with the felon, pre-Masonic trial, and allowed him to plot his own punishment?

The culmination is an affront to every Master Mason in good standing across the globe; past, present, and future.  The policy of “making good men better” is for naught when a felon reigns free; all suffer the sins of one.
