Florida Continues Voter Purge In Spite Of Justice Department Warning
Governor Rick Scott wants you to vote, as long as you’re not voting Democratic, it seems. Secretary of State Ken Detzner issued this statement:
We have an obligation to make sure the voter rolls are accurate and we are going to continue forward and do everything that we can legally do to make sure than ineligible voters cannot vote. We are firmly committed to doing the right thing and preventing ineligible voters from being able to cast a ballot.
And what does the purge list look like?
A Miami Herald analysis of the list found it was dominated by Democrats, independents and Hispanics. The largest number were from Miami-Dade, home to the state’s highest foreign-born population.
