Judge Sides with Florida on Illegal Voter Purge
Obama’s Department of Justice and Homeland Security are trying desperately to prevent Florida from ensuring those who vote can do so legally. And the DOJ is losing, and Florida winning its fight to protect itself.
A federal judge has refused to stop Florida from removing potentially non-U.S. citizens from its rolls.
The U.S. Department of Justice sued the state to halt the purge, arguing it was going on too close to a federal election.
U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle said Wednesday that there was nothing in federal voting laws that prevent the state from identifying non-U.S. citizens even if it comes less than 90 days before the Aug. 14 election.
This is quite a smack-down for Obama. And it comes less than a day before the Supreme Court decision on his key piece of legislation, government mandated health care.
Anyone else noticing the following trend in Obama’s government?
If it’s illegal, protect it. If it’s legal, attack it.
