Analysis: 98.4% of voters on Rick Scott's first purge list are eligible voters

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.

    The right wing is always trying to suppress the vote. They can only win if they lie and cheat. That is why it is important to vote democratic and throw as many republicans as possible out.

    It's not even a question at this point. There is no evidence showing that this needs to be done and even less to say that this needs to be done in short order right before the presidential election.

    I believe the Left continues to commit voter fraud in massive numbers, especially in the big cities, and is afraid that voter ID laws might hinder some of their fraud. I have to show ID for a LOT of things I do every single day. It is a reasonable and long overdue approach to make someone who casts a vote prove that they are who they say they are, and that they are qualified to vote legally.

    For the record, I am all for removing names of the deceased from the voter rolls. The problem is when they have done this in other states, they have screwed it up and tried to remove legit voters from the rolls as well.

    Voter ID protects the legal voter. Democrats don't want it so they can cheat with illegal voters.

    Their ethics are scewed - they believe that if they get ahead by cheating they can call it a victory - most of us were taught otherwise when we were children - (good grief had to come in and fix the word "their" - must have been up too late last night)

    yeah, it's sad. But Florida always seems to come up everytime there's an election. It's getting to the point that no matter how Florida votes, I still question if it was done fairly.

    These people, many unwittingly, have been launched on a mission to turn America into a banana republic run by the Koch Brothers and a few other Billionaires along with the heads of the world's largest multinational companies. The target is actually global, not just the US. It is globalism with a fascist, corporatist flair and the sycophants of these corporatists are encouraged to take no prisoners. They are constantly convinced by right wing spin factories and media that they are on a mission from God and that all that oppose them are agents of communism or demonic forces.

    Florida in 2000. Ohio AND Florida in 2004. I wonder how many states it will be this time? I guess it depends upon how many swing states there are in this election for the GOP/Diebold/Rove to 'swing' through their usual vote-rigging.

    Romney will have many, many imaginary friends this November, all voting for him.

    It's nothing about stopping illegals from voting. It's not about dead people voting. It's about making sure those who would vote against Romney aren't going to get the equal opportunity to vote that they were getting. Now, they have to prove they are legal voters even though they are already REGISTERED to vote.

    Dumb, for Pennsylvania's governor to give it away, but it's nothing I didn't know about all along.

    Enjoy your version of reality, but it's not real.

    OK. Sorry, but that's the real political agenda at play. He let the cat out of the bag and people cheered for it. It's nothing new to me, but you're still making excuses.

    There's nothing wrong with showing your ID when voting I've been doing it for over ten years IN A STATE THAT ALWAYS REQUIRED IT.

    If, for some odd reason, I was asked to re-register and get some new ID in order to vote, I'd wonder why and think it was a load of BS. And, rightfully so.

    Of course they are trying to supress Democratic votes. They cannot win fairly without doing that. They have another weak candidate so they must cheat to give him any chance. They have even trumped up fast & furious to try and remove Holder who will stop this voter supression with the DOJ.
