There is no fraud on the democratic side! Nothing has been offered as verifiable proof. This is an attempt to suppress democratic voting groups like the immigrants you refer to with your racist slur "illegals". It also targets the elderly who also vote for dems. Yesterday you spewed a slur against native americans ("injun") and against african americans (the birther crap) now immigrants ("illegals"). You are clearly a virus on society. You aren't for the 99%. You support the 1% who prey on you and your family. Support OWS. Vote out pro vote suppressing politicians

Hospital Corporaton of America's (HCA) own panel of inquiry has found overwhelming evidence that several of their hospitals in Florida were regularly preforming dangerous and unnecessary cardiac procedures, oh and they were also highly profitable operations to perform. If you think the name HCA sounds familiar, it's because it was founded by the current Governor of Florida, and it paid a record fine of $2 billion for Medicare fraud. The rightwing talking point is that Rick Scott "wasn't involved", he did however take the 5th during testimony something like a hundred times to avoid incriminating himself. Yeah, you can guess the odds that he wasn't involved.

Update. It isn't 180,000...it is 2700 suspected to not be citizens. Some have since provided proof of citizenship, some have confessed to voting even though they are not citizens.

It really is amazing how many liars provide their own noose.
Here is the article - that says nothing about
"some have confessed to voting even though they are not citizens."


the number on the list is 180,000 but scott got to send out 2600 letters before Justice acted:


Florida Voter Purge Will Continue, Defying Federal Warning

Posted: 06/02/2012 9:23 am Updated: 06/03/2012 10:13 am reddit stumble Share on Google+ 4,141 329 229 29,142 Get Latino Voices Alerts: Sign Up React: Amazing Inspiring Funny Scary Hot Crazy Important Weird Follow: Elections 2012, Florida, Voting Rights Act, Black Voters, Florida Voter Purge, Hispanics, Immigrant, Latino, Latino Politics, Latino Voices News Florida Voter Purge Florida Gov. Rick Scott.

Florida will defy a federal warning to stop purging people the state suspects aren't U.S. citizens from voter registration rolls.

Despite a Justice Department letter, objections from county elections officials and evidence that a disproportionate number are voters of color, Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner's office planned to continue scrubbing the election rolls, a spokesman said Friday. Gov. Rick Scott (R) ordered the search for potentially ineligible voters.

“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 that ineligible voters cannot vote,” said Chris Cate, a spokesman for Detzner. “We are firmly committed to doing the right thing and preventing ineligible voters from being able to cast a ballot. We are not going to give up our efforts to make sure the voter rolls are accurate."

Justice Department officials declined to comment on Florida’s plans.

In a letter issued late Thursday, T. Christian Herren Jr., who leads the Justice Department voting section, told Detzner that the state's plan to review the status of the 2,600 suspected non-citizens and purge them if the voters fail to prove citizenship appears to violate the 1964 Voting Rights Act and the National Voter Registration Act.

Wow...such anger. Here is the quote from the same article.

"Miami-Dade County election officials issued 1,570 warning letters, said Christina White, the county chief deputy supervisor of elections. Of these, 13 people responded indicating they are not citizens and have been removed from the voter rolls. One of the voters cast one ballot in 1996. Another voted once in 2000 and again in 2004. Their names will be forwarded to the state’s attorney’s office for possible prosecution as required by law, White said. "

Scott purge update. From the People for the American way.

Dear Dan,

The Department of Justice has sent a letter to the Florida Secretary of State telling him to stop the purge. In addition to being wrong, it appears that it is also probably illegal.

Not only did Florida fail to clear the purge under the Voting Rights Act, which it was required to do, but it seems to be in clear violation of the National Voter Registration Act. According to the NVRA, voter roll maintenance should have been concluded 90 days before an election -- Florida’s primary is on August 14, so that means any purge or other voter roll adjustments should have ceased on May 16.

Don't let Florida's right-wing state officials flout federal law! Tell Florida Gov. Rick Scott and Sec. of State Ken Detzner to stop breaking the law and stop disenfranchising eligible voters. Tell them to stop the purge now!
