“As one would expect with a new program that has not previously been tested against real-world information, your program has critical imperfections, which lead to errors that harm and confuse eligible voters.”
~Department of Justice
If you don’t know what’s going on in Florida regarding the state’s decision to prevent certain voters from being able to vote …where have you been? If you’re not up to date – you need to catch up HERE.
The Department of Justice responded to the state of Florida’s decision to ignore the DOJ’s warning of legal action if they proceeded with illegally purging Florida citizens from the voters rolls. In the letter – they note that it is illegal to proceed with “list maintenance programs within 90 days of a general election or federal primary”. The DOJ notes that even Florida election supervisors acknowledge the “significant error rate” within Florida’s purge lists. The very sad and obvious truth in all of this is that the Florida Republican party is doing everything it can to sway the vote in their direction by purging likely Democratic voters in a state that George W. Bush is purported to have won by a few hundred votes.
Your vote matters. Your vote is very important. A big part of politics is to confuse you, conflate issues and make Americans very cynical about the process to ensure the Kool-Aid drinkers on both sides vote … and everyone else – they want to sit out the election. I can assure you that a lower turnout benefits the conservative cause on the whole … and the “conservative cause” really is the “billionaire cause”.
The Miami Herald has the story HERE:
Assistant U.S. Attorney General Thomas E. Perez said the Department of Justice will sue Florida over its noncitizen voter purge, which he called unlawful.
“Please immediately cease this unlawful conduct,” Perez wrote. “Because the State has indicated its unwillingness to comply with these requirements, I have authorized the initiation of an enforcement action against Florida in federal court.”
Perez responded to Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner’s request last week that the DOJ explain why it’s not misreading federal law and that it explain why the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has refused Florida access to an immigration database that would help with the purge.
Said Perez: The database wouldn’t help. And Florida messed up the purge all by itself.
