Holder stops Florida voter fraud purge

Holder to Florida: halt non-citizen voter purge
About 58 percent of those flagged as potential noncitizens are Hispanics!!!

Res Ipsa Loquitur

Previously: about 14 months ago an elections supervisor in southwest Florida, a fellow of insight, noted a substantial number of folks summoned for jury duty in his county were excused when they identified themselves as non-citizens. This struck the supervisor as important because potential jurors are dipped not from the pool of licensed drivers or from local utilities customers or even property taxpayers, but from among the ranks of registered voters. And, as Pasco's elections supervisor Brian Corley notes, "It's not a gray area. Either you're a citizen or you're not a citizen."

[... halt non-citizen voter purge]

DOJ’s written demand came hours after the agency refused to comment on the matter to The Miami Herald. It also followed a federal court ruling Thursday that struck down a Republican voter-registration law that a judge (Clinton appointee Robert Lewis Hinkle) found too onerous.

So far, Florida has flagged 2,700 180,000 suspicious hits,and sent 2,700 to county elections supervisors, who have found the data and methodology to be flawed and problematic (and onerous?). The list of potential noncitizen voters – 
many  of whom have turned out to be lawful citizens and voters – disproportionately hits minorities, especially Hispanics (OMFG!).

About 58 percent of those flagged as potential noncitizens are Hispanics, Florida’s largest ethnic immigrant population, a Miami Herald analysis found. Hispanics make up 13 percent of the overall 11.3 million active registered voters.

Independent voters and Democrats are the most likely to face being purged from the rolls. Republicans and non-Hispanic whites are the least likely.

About 58 percent of those flagged as potential noncitizens are Hispanics ... is that all?  I'd have bet money on it being 100%.  Lost in all this is an inarguable fact — "One fraudulent voter is too many."

The vote is the very foundation of our governance. Vote fraud should be a capital offense.

Heard a caller on Andrew Wilkow's show yesterday declare that a majority of the noncitizens are Cubans and not Hispanics (Mexicans). Apparently, if you want to really piss off a Cuban, just label him Hispanic. Wouldn't it be great if this were another grand FU by the obamunists that blew up in their faces as they and their media monkeys continue to call the group by the wrong label? -- Skyhawker, Doug

I hope Florida stands their ground and Cheney's* Holder.
*"Go fuck yourself!"
Gotta draw a line somewhere on Holder and the Uhbamunists, and this seems a good place.

He meant to say:

"sent to democrat county elections supervisors who have found the data and methodology to be flawed and problematic"
