A new Florida law that contributed to long voter lines and caused some to abandon voting altogether was intentionally designed by Florida GOP staff and consultants to inhibit Democratic voters, former GOP officials and current GOP consultants have told The Palm Beach Post.
Republican leaders said in proposing the law that it was meant to save money and fight voter fraud. But a former GOP chairman and former Gov. Charlie Crist, both of whom have been ousted from the party, now say that fraud concerns were advanced only as subterfuge for the law’s main purpose: GOP victory.
OK, round up the usual suspects, and play it again Sam…
The thing of it is, the US Supreme Court is allegedly going to be looking at The Voting Rights Act of 1965 this year, and specifically about striking down the restrictions on those states, counties, and numincipalities who are precluded from enacting their own laws without supervision due to their bad citizenship in days gone by. The supposed arguement is that “That was then, this is now” and no one does those voter supression, Jim Crow laws anymore… and yet, they clearly do.
