Show evidence of just one lie I've presented. Be specific and be prepared to show evidence. Bet you wonít.
If Florida has the names of people who voted illegally under Florida law, they don't nned help from the Federal government to arrest them.

You make no sense at all.

If the voted illegally throw them in jail and make an example of them. What is your problem with understanding that lawbreakers should be punished?

Who said anything about arrests? They want them to be removed from the voting registration rolls. Man, you're adding your own ficticious story to something that shouldn't even be questioned: removing anyone illegally registered to vote! What's wrong with being lawful?

If they want to "remove people from the rolls" Florida ought not do it in a way that strips qualified voters of rights.

They would not be using "lists" supplied by the GOP as their base for removing voters, they will generate their ownlists, from jury lists, from DMV, from schools. But no, it is a political GOP paid for PURGE.

It is a political purge of qualified voters, plain and simple.
The Federal government ought not participate in purging qualified voters.

If you have, and trust this GOP list, arrest them as they go into the booth to vote. And pay all the lawsuits of the people whose rights you violate. But, if it is a real problem, as you say, fine all the unqualified voters and use that money to run the state; and give yourself a tax cut.

You are just full of it.

Unbelievable. Florida is attempting to verify their list. Why do you oppose that verification?

Then they should verify the rolls in a non-political partisan fashion; which is NOT the present plan.

Of course Obama is playing dirty. That is all he has. You don't expect him to run on his dismal record do you? He, Holder, and their whole tax evading group are corrupt politicians,and are finally going to get what is coming to them. They are totally lawless. Next time elect people with integrity, not corrupt Chicago politicians.
Why would Holder and Obama sabotage thier ivestigation of Bush gun-running by giving documents to the thieves that started it all. Issa would just use the documents to cover the tracks of the Den of thieves of 2001-2009.

Those who support voter suppression NEVER do make sense.

It there were illegal person who actually voted you can be damn sure the Republican Governor, would direct the Republican AG to find a Republican sheriff to arrest them.

All supervisors of elections were involved...many of them democrats. They're verifying with DMV records but the DHS SAVE data base is more up to date and deemed accurate...yet they're refusing to assist a state in trying to make sure only legal voters are voting. What can possibly be wrong with that?

What are the democrats afraid of? Hmmmm...with this Justice Dept. lawsuit against Florida, I suppose it's akin to another Executive Privilege!

Not so far, and there have been illegal voters voting. Catch some state/local news occasionally instead of Chris Matthews "racist" rants.

I see youíve not changed a bit. As usual PlacentaRoy blathers his nonsense.

Do you believe people illegally in this country should be allowed to vote?

We finally have a governor unafraid of popular opinion or the opinion of the party. Is Florida better off today or before Scott was elected?

Why am I not surprised?

Youíve been shown evidence illegal immigrants are on the voter registration roles and you see no problem.

Youíre so desperate to keep the criminal in the white house youíll accept votes from people ineligible to vote.

Obama singling out young illegal immigrants isnít equal application of law. Frankly itís discrimination. Had he done the same for all I wouldnít like it but would have less of a problem with it.

Obama claiming executive privilege in the grilling of Eric Holder. He canít legally to that unless the white house is directly tied to fast and furious or in the interests of national security.

Every time the criminal doesnít get his way he attempts to invoke executive privilege.

What was that he said about the US Supreme Court? What will Obama do if SCOTUS strikes down the health care bill?

Nope,
Not 'shown evidence.'

The article sais that 50 people voted illegally in the last election. None were arrested by Florida.

They should be arrested and jaile, and if they are illegal aliens, deported after their jail tiime. Why would you not want them prosecuted, yet say there is a 'problem.'

There is no problem except that Florida wants to disenfranchize qualified voters.

How many "illegal voters" were arrested in the last decade in Florida?
More dangerous are the "BAD SCANNERS" that are known to the Governor, Sec. State, and FL Boa
rd of Elections to regularly miscount votes.
Why not concentrate on a real, not a KKK style problem?
Your "Black Panther " story is an urban legend; promulgated by the serial liar Rupert Murdoch. A LIE.
You are a dupe.
"BLACK PEOPLE" are not coming after you. Relax, fool.
They only come after you in Philadelphia. That's why mayor Nutter had to impose a curfew on his young black inhabitants. That's why the eateries in Cherry Hill NJ are doing so well. Who wants to go to Philadelphia? It's spooky over there now. There are consequences for racism, even if you're a black racist.
