Check Out The Article Below & Let There Be No Doubt That A Scheme Is In Place By The Right Wing To Suppress Votes In The November Election.
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.
Only 41 registered voters residing in 13 counties–this is
out of the 2,625 names flagged by the Florida SOS as “potential
noncitizens”–were removed from the rolls.
In other words, 98.4% of the 2,625 people identified by the Florida
SOS as “potential noncitizens” remain on the rolls because the
Supervisors of Elections found insufficient evidence that they were
ineligible to be registered voters.
That's a really crappy list. It's hard to imagine how many on Scott's secret list
of suspected non-citizens are eligible voters. But if it's consistent
with the failure rate on the smaller sample, it'd be about 177,000.
That's a lot of voters not committing voter fraud.
