The fundraising effort, according to several Bloomberg aides, will benefit the Coalition to Restore Rights, an organization run by ex-inmates that works to make it easier for ex-criminals to vote.

“The right to vote is fundamental to our democracy, and no American should be denied that right,” Bloomberg said. “Working with the Coalition to Restore Rights, we are committed to ending disenfranchisement and discrimination.”
