Former FL Gov. Charlie Crist Accuses WI Gov. Rick Scott Of “Unconscionable” Voter Suppression
Crist to Andrea Michell:
“The concern really is on sort of a closing the door on democracy. For example, they’ve already changed the policy as it relates to former, non-violent felons. We had established a policy where they would have their rights automatically restored, give them the opportunity to vote once they had served their time and paid their debt to society. … That has now been changed under the new administration.
“In addition, they’ve also said that early voting — which is a great tradition is Florida — has been reduced from a 14-day period before the elections to eight days before, making it again more difficult for legal citizens to have their right to vote be heard.”Click here for reuse options!
