Latest on gov. Rick Scott’s harassment of the citizens of Florida’s voters. What better way to advance the “Austerity” policies of the republicans?
Gov. Rick Scott is eager to take advantage of suppressing the voters rights. His previous attempt met with disaster at the cost to the taxpayers. Once again state officials have been ordered to contest citizens rights to vote. All in the name of integrity! It is viewed by the voters as harassment from a partisan republican governor.
Uproar from the voters on the long lines of 3to 6 hours has faded and or ignored by the republicans in Florida… His defense is “The Supreme Court has allowed our secretary of state to start working with our supervisor of elections to make sure our sacred right to vote is not diluted,”. Failing to recognize that voters observe republicans to be the instrument of voter rights dilution.
Growing list of states, including Texas, Mississippi, North Carolina and Alabama will take delight in obstructing their citizens rights of vote with shorting the voting time at the poles and obstructions to voters applications. Identical measures that gov. Rick Scott and his republicans pursued for the 2012 elections. Taxpayers will be given the bill to build the infrastructure to suppress voters rights and the following law suits that will follow. Conservative integrity?
Hispanics and now a growing number of Cuban Americans are recognizing the attacks by republicans on their basic fundamental rights as citizens. Invalidating the immigrant group’s lawsuit demonstrates the depth of the immigrants slide to second class citizenship.
Gov. Rick Scott will now increase his attacks by involving elections officials and state officials…. Senator Bill Nelson views this as “Governor Scott seemingly is bent on suppressing the vote in Florida, with his latest move coming as an unfortunate result of the recent Supreme Court decision that gutted the Voting Rights Act,”
Integrity lacking by gov. Rick Scott may yet come back to haunt all the republicans for years to come. Gov. Rick Scott’s last attempt to remove citizens from their rights to vote went like this. Gathering 182,000 names that taxpayers paid to investigate for their citizens rights to vote was soon whittled down to 2,600 . Taxpayers paid for further investigation and that 2,600 was whittled down 198. More taxpayer funds investigating this discovered it was less than 40! Mr. Steve Schale summed it up “It’s a solution in search of a problem,”
Taxpayers paid for that mud raking and any lawsuits that may have or will be spun off that republican fiasco. Republicans undaunted supports gov. Rick Scott’s to once again harass the citizens of Florida of their voting rights. Senator Marco Rubio {R} applauds the review efforts of gov. Rick Scott. To continue to harass Florida citizens rights to vote.
According to the Department of Homeland Security the data base from which gov. Rick Scott will be using is NOT a “comprehensive”. Probability of increasing taxpayer cost to investigate and any potential law suites that may be derived from this malevolent tactic of the republicans.
Lori Edwards, the supervisor of elections in Polk County and president of the Florida State Association of Supervisors of Elections, is concerned about why would gov. Rick Scott chose a tactic that has proven to be erroneous, as to its results. Ms Edwards sums it up “It doesn’t seem like a prudent way to proceed with something that you have already botched once before.”
Gov. Rick Scott and republicans are exhibiting their desperations. Grasping at straws at taxpayers expense.

But Ms. Edwards said she was perplexed about why Mr. Scott chose to return to this issue so quickly.“They are rubbing their hands together and saying,‘Let’s go at it,’” Ms. Edwards said.“It doesn’t seem like a prudent way to proceed with something that you have already botched once before.”
