Florida Voter Purge Angers Justice
A state that has been plagued with voter issues, has decided a Presidential election by 537 votes and is a very important state, if not the most important, in 2012 (that I predict Romney will win), Florida's Secretary of State is reviewing voter eligibility and plans to purge close to 3000 ineligible voters if they do not provide evidence of citizenship.
Eric Holder's Justice Department has warned against doing this, but Florida is continuing with the process. In a state that plays such a significant role in presidential elections, it's only right that the Secretary of State, under the direction of Governor Rick Scott, is purging ineligible votes. This is the United States, elections should be fair and this is a precaution to make sure that occurs. Showing strong resolve is nothing new for Rick Scott and he should be commended for standing up to the most politicized Justice Department in American History, which really doesn't have a leg to stand on when it comes to electoral fraud.
If Justice wants to sue, I say bring it-Florida has one of the best Attorney Generals in Pam Bondi and they have the law behind them to take politics out of the equation.
