By Bifford Caulfied -- Rogue Republicans in Florida have vowed to continue their criminal conspiracy to defraud voters of their legal rights in
defiance of Justice Department demands. Good bye Rick Scott, hello national guard deployments!
In response to a demand by the Justice Department that the state of Florida cease purging voter rolls in violation of the 1965 Voting Rights
Act, Florida Secretary of State Spokesperson, Chris Cate, said, "We have a year-round obligation to make sure the voter rolls are accurate, we are going to continue forward and do everything that we can legally do to make sure the ineligible voters cannot vote."
Well, that's fine, Chris Cate, but one quick question, please.
Are you willing to go to prison for violating the Voting Rights Act of 1965 if you end up disenfranchising legally eligible voters in the process -- either by design or by accident. Purging voters who are legally entitled to vote is a crime against democracy -- and should be charged and tried for the criminal conspiracy -- of attempted murder of democracy by unlawful use of public office and abuse of public power in Florida.
As I have said before -- there are probably more Republican politicians who have posted pictures of themselves engaged in sex acts with farm
animals on Facebook and bragged about it to their buddies -- than there are cases of voter fraud in Florida. But we all no that. What is really happening here is Republicans have no ideas to run on and no policy positions that benefit anybody but the 1% -- so its pretty hard to plan a strategy for winning the election with so few people who benefit from your actions -- the only chance you have is to suppress the vote of your adversaries -- the democrats. Good luck with that. Especially over the long term!
