The real scandal (as Hans von Spakovsky calls it) in the fight between Florida and the Eric Holder Justice Department is that Holder is ultimately defending foreigners voting in American elections. Try that position on for size amongst the general public, and Obama’s campaign strategists aren’t going to like the outcome.
The Justice Department lawsuit against Florida will stop Florida from removing non-citizen voters from the rolls by freezing the entire purge process. Justice claims that immediate removal of foreigners falls within time limits that restrict Florida’s ability to remove legitimately registered voters.
But a citizen of Guatemala isn’t a legitimately registered voter in Florida in the first place. They committed a crime when they registered to vote. Florida and the Justice Department should be indicting and prosecuting these voters who falsely registered.
But maybe they made a simple mistake when the registered to vote? Nonsense.
