|Purge Overkill – John Oliver & Florida’s Voter Registration Law|
Fortunately, the Federal courts have struck down parts of the Florida laws that have to do with purging voters. Yes, I said that correctly. If you read in the news, both the Orlando Sentinel and the Miami Herald have published more than one example of people who have voted before, are American citizens, some of whom are even veterans, and whom the State of Florida tried to purge from its voters rolls.
These set of laws are some of the best arguments I have ever read and heard for Federal judicial interference. Please note as you watch the video that there are Republican supervisors of election that are against these laws, as well as the League of Women Voters. Florida has become a frightening state.
