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.

    In every state where the Pub governors won in '10, a concentrated effort to suppress the vote has been their top priority on their Agendas. Walker proposed and had such legislation passed in the very first months of his election. It was such an egregious law that when challenged in the courts, the republican appointed judges even said it was "unconstitutional".

    The right wing will do anything to win this election. I hope those of us who support Obama keep giving as much as we can. Unfortunately, my donations are small because the Bush administration wiped us out. I don't know how we can fight Citizen's United and all the super pacs. Sad to think that all of the elections from now on will be purchased by the wealthy like the Koch Brothers, Karl R,etc.

    Republicans never play a fair game, and no wonder it's never a surprise that nothing gets done, because everything they portray is based on lies and deceptions!

    To those of you who don't seem to understand the article, here is the point!

    "98.4% of the 2,625 people identified by the Florida SOS as “potential non-citizens (meaning they are not eligible voters)” but they remain on the register rolls because the Supervisors of Elections found insufficient evidence to prove that these registered voters were really ineligible to vote; Now, they found out that those same 98.4 percent of the 2,625 people including those of the "potential non-citizens (or ineligible voters)" are in fact, ELIGIBLE VOTERS..

    Ok, color me confused. I read the quote below as saying that 98.4% of the possible ineligibles have NOT been removed from the voter lists. That sounds good to me, not bad.

    So where am I going wrong? Polite assistance welcome. If you get your rocks off being rude, don't say anything.

    All you can do is quote an article, no personal ideas? You need a life more than I do. At least I'm not afraid to admit I don't understand something. You can't even come up with your own thoughts.

    Your reply is not only rude, it doesn't offer any info. I guess that's because you don't HAVE any -- all you can do is use your computer keys to quote someone else.

    So you say I only quote articles and have no personal ideas, well I don't consider right wingers worthy of real dialogue. Just to give you a slight idea of what I think of your kind, I'm going to post an article that I actually wrote myself so enjoy!

  • nothing... Keeping... 2012/07/01 05:15:09

    You clearly have no idea of who "my kind" is.

    I've seen many questions on SH about why are RW's so hateful and why are LW's so hateful. I've never had a problem with understanding why people would ask why RW's are so hateful, because their hate spills over all the time. BUT I've NEVER understood why anyone accused LW's of being hateful. Until now. I remember your blog -- I looked at it and deleted it without replying because it was disgusting.

    Now for a clear idea of what I think of YOUR kind: You're as vile and valueless as any rancid RW. Haters and ranters leave me cold no matter which rock you crawl out from. YOU are the bugs that need exterminating.

    I asked a question thinking that a LIBERAL would give me a civil answer. Apparently not, at least not any of your pals -- I certainly won't expect it from you. I see that a couple of my FRIENDS have answered, so I'll ask one of them. Feel free not to butt in.

    The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem, so why don't you handle your business and remember to get a grip on reality, because it's obvious that you're not living in it.

    Oh by the way, I have zero respect for your kind therefore your opinion of anything I write, etc. means nothing, but don't cry over my honest assessment of you just seek help. crying purple character

    Your "honest assessment" is a baseless assumption.

    My opinon of what you wrote is that it wasn't worth the time it took you to do it. And it certainly wasn't worth my time to read (I didn't read all of it, just enough to get the "flavor" -- it was rotten, like a bad egg).

    Your childish attempt to patronize me is noted. You and your little purple pal together will never be good enough to pull that off. But tx for the laugh.

    It's obvious that you're in denial about having a problem, so as I stated in a prior post, get back at to me when you solve it. lol bouncing

    That's why I asked the question. Tx for being civil -- which the author couldn't manage.

    I'm trying to find out how I'm misreading it -- it looks clear to me, and at the same time from reading the question it apparently is totally the opposite. So what am I seeing wrong?
  • morris44 jubil8 ... 2012/07/03 18:28:37
    I think the issue is then possiblity of purging valid voters under such a poor system/approach.

    If enacted nation-wide there wouldn't be a study to see who belongs and the effective error rate could be as high as this study found.
  • jubil8 ... morris44 2012/07/05 01:47:25
    jubil8 BN-0 PON
    Tx, morris44, that makes good sense. The way I read the article was that the basis for culling names (old DMV stats) was a poor choice -- and I agree -- but the officials were NOT purging valid voters and were saying that wasn't the goal.

    Maybe Scott wants to purge valid voters, maybe Florida's election commissioners won't let him. Hopefully the watchdogs won't lose track of the issue.
  • morris44 jubil8 ... 2012/07/06 15:01:58
    Unfortunately the watchdogs are typically not well funded enough to keep up with the other side.

    It proves what we've been saying all along. Voter suppression is the name of the game & it's part of the GOP's plan to steal the election.
