By Robert Sexton -- It was a great relief to see the Department of Justice bringing pressure to bear in Florida -- finally---
resulting in all 67 election supervisors in the state announcing they are halting the Governor Scott mandated, illegal voter purging ordered in Florida. It almost has the feel of something working a little bit.
The ultimate outcome is still undermined in Florida -- but we insist the Justice Department halt voter purging and restrictive Voter ID
laws across the entire country. It is obvious to most Americans that this if a fraudulent effort by partisan Republicans to reduce the number of minorities that can vote in Florida elections because they understand that their particular policy ideas appeal to fewer and fewer people as time goes on -- because they are designed to benefit the very wealthy -- 1% of the people -- at the expense of everyone one else in the country.
The wheels of justice turn slowly -- but the there is great urgency in the necessity for the Department of Justice take immediate action to halt this ongoing criminal conspiracy by Republicans to deny legal voters their lawful right to vote -- and distort and corrupt democracy in a way that they believe favors themselves and their wealthy benefactors!
