Candidates should go after the criminal vote

They say that more than 80 percent of the American adult population has committed a serious crime in their life, even though they may not have been caught. So, I was wondering why politicians don't actively go after the criminal vote. With a promise to go easy on crime, you may just get a reasonable percentage of those voters. These clever politicians could instill fear into the masses with speeches about how you may not have been busted yet...but you will be. "And who's gonna be there for you? Certainly not the 'lock em up and throw away the key' candidate."
The debates would be very entertaining. "My opponent is easy on crime." And the response? "Yep." Next question.
They could have a platform which promises to go easy on deadbeat dads...and the moms who kill them.
It is believed that most career criminals do not currently vote at all. This would give them incentive to get out to the polls, thus increasing the number of registered voters. Generally considered a good thing.
And the possibilities for campaign slogans are endless:
"Do the crime, not the time."
"Go on a spree, I'll set you free."
"Smoke a joint. Don't be sent to one."
I think I may be onto something here.
