Via The Hill:
The Obama administration has agreed to let Florida use a national law enforcement database to purge residents suspected of not being U.S. citizens from their voter rolls.
The decision was announced in a letter to state GOP Gov. Rick Scott, who has pushed for Florida to receive access to the Homeland Security (DHS) registry of noncitizen residents, the Associated Press first reported.
The administration had blocked Florida’s request for access to the database for months, but the decision to allow access was spurred by a court decision in another voting-rights case in favor of the state.
As a commenter to the article writes, "That the federal government would even attempt to block ANY state from this information is unconscionable." Well, it's not if you're afraid that common sense voter integrity measures will diminish the number of votes your side will receive in elections. Which, of course, is unethical as all hell, but this is what modern "progressives" have been diminished to.Posted by Hube at July 15, 2012 10:44 AM | TrackBack
