If you don’t know about the voter purge … let me explain:
Governor Rick Scott (R-FL) and the Attorney General (R-FL) sent out letters to a list of Floridians that they would be purged from the voter rolls for
being potentially Democratic leaning voters possibly being fraudulent voters. (source).
Even Republican election supervisors have said they will not follow this directive as it is clearly in violation of federal law … an awesome elections supervisor – Ann McFall – who is a Republican spoke on Rachel Maddow’s show and said she and other election supervisors would not follow this directive from Rick Scott. (source)
Seeing such an egregious political move to try to disenfranchise so many voters – the Department of Justice sued Rick Scott in Federal court. (source)
And now we know that 58% of the people on the purge list were Hispanic (war on Latinos) and 98% of the people on the list were eligible voters. Americans SHOULD NOT stand for this. They are trying very, very hard for you not to vote. Don’t let them win. This is how you steal elections and Florida is a very important swing state.
The Daily Kos writes HERE:
The statistics that we’ve seen from the first round of Republican Gov. Rick Scott’s Florida voter purge are pretty disturbing. The Miami Herald uncovered the fact that 58 percent of the people on the initial list sent out to supervisors to be scrubbed off the voting rolls were Hispanic, even though they represent just 13 percent of the voting population. According to the paper’s analysis, in addition to Hispanics, Democratic and independent voters were more likely to be on the list.
That’s bad, but further analysis from ElectionSmith, Inc. makes it even worse. They’ve found that 98.4 percent of the 2,625 people included on that first list as “potential noncitizens” are eligible voters. That’s quite an error rate.
