FLORIDA THUMBS NOSE AT DOJ; CLEANS VOTER ROLLS OF FELONS, ILLEGALS
Made popular 349 days ago in
Leonard Pitts, possibly the worst columnist taking up space at a major American newspaper, complains this week about Florida’s attempt to clean its voter roll in a column entitled ‘GOP Power Play.’ Specifically, he’s outraged that a voter should have to prove eligibility!
The outrage is that the 19 million people who live in Florida have been so ill served for so long by a lazy, incompetent and incurious press.
You would think after the independent review of the 2008 vote in Minneapolis-St. Paul found that 393 felons had voted, more than enough to eclipse Al Franken’s 312-vote margin of victory just in two counties, journos in Florida, the hotspot of election controversy, would have gotten on the ball and started combing through our voter roll to find out how many felons are on it, and how many dead people, how many non-citizens and how many second home owners already voting Up North. They haven’t. None have, that I’veevery heard. Because they Don’t Care. They don’t a clean roll. Let’s face it. They want a roll they can monkey with.
There’s plenty of evidence the Florida voter roll has lots of ineligible voters on it.
Late last year, South Florida radio talk show host Joyce Kaufman told her listeners she got an absentee ballot in the mail for her mother who had passed away in 2010. Kaufman recounted how she’d contacted the office of the Broward County Supervisor of Elections and submitted the appropriate paperwork for her mother to be removed from the voter rolls. But she wasn’t, and the absentee ballot came in the mail months later, addressed to someone who wasn’t around anymore to vote.
When she came back from the next commercial break, she said a mailman had called to say he’d just delivered 10 absentee ballots to the same home--all of them addressed to people he’d never heard of.
There was no report of this in newspapers here in South Florida.
The entire voter roll in the State of Florida needs to be reviewed by teams of rational people who will not stop to complain that the ineligibles are all Democrats. Florida, the battleground in the 2000 presidential election, still has deep scars, and experiences tremors that indicate another election eruption could be just around the corner. The integrity of the roll is of the highest importance. It is the starting point for a free and fair election. It is being scrutinized in Tallahassee. It should be scrutinized by journalists as well, or others of more sound mind, with the results published for all to see. Don’t tell me Minneapolis-St. Paul had a voter roll chock full of felons ineligible to vote but Miami doesn’t. Don’t tell me in a state where about 19 percent of the population (not counting the hundreds of thousands or even millions of illegals who don’t answer the door when the census workers come knocking) is Spanish speaking, we don’t have illegals on the voter roll.
I have suspicions, based on evidence, that the roll here in Florida is a mess.
In the spring of 2000, the Miami-Dade Supervisor of Elections told me he faced a serious obstacle in trying the clean the roll of ineligibles--the “Motor Voter” law. He couldn’t take people off without going through a very long process. And even then, he often could not remove people--people who’d moved away years ago, died, or were otherwise ineligible.

Isn't Florida doing a great job of taking away the democRAT opportunity for stealing votes?
Yes, democRATs are still smarting from their failure in 2000 . It was one of their best attempts and went down to failure when the Florida Supreme Court upheld the LAW!
No, how will we win by committing a crime? That's the only way liberals can prevail in elections. This choice for Koolaid filled liberal democRAT voters.
This is not a scientific survey,
to learn more. Results may not total 100% due to rounding and voting descrepencies.

You want to keep seeing votes negated through cheating? Figures. All you liberals are low lives. Probably why none of you ever volunteer to serve your country. The Nations' leeches, not its' producers.

You liberals still smarting over your failure to steal the 2000 election for Gore-Loserman? You gave it your best shot and came up short. I agree with Rush when he states that whenever you want to know what the democRAT party is up to just listen to what they are accusing the Republicans of doing. You lefties need to get over old elections and work at reforming your party and reclaiming it from the Marxist liberal mob who have hijacked it.
