The Dems are up in arms about Florida again

... but, as usual, it's up to the New Media to toss some cold water reality on the situation. Greg Pollowitz, in this case:

Just to follow up on my post yesterday on Florida cleaning up its voter rolls, MSDNC’s Martin Bashir goes and proves my point with his rant yesterday, “Why is the Sunshine State in the midst of a purge that even Josef Stalin would admire?”

Please, please if you are truly interested in this story, set a Google News Alert for Marc Caputo of the Miami Herald and start following his pieces on the issue. Here’s a recent article by Caputo on what’s going on. Hint, it’s not Stalinism.

Florida has essentially been begging the Dept. of Homeland Security to assist it with efforts to ID non-citizens who may be on the state's voting rolls. Still, DHS refuses. Why? The state is being a lot more diligent than it was in 2000 when it did more-or-less blanket purges of its voter rolls that contained (or may have contained) convicted felons. So, why won't DHS cooperate -- especially when the Dept. of Justice is now threatening the state about its current actions?
