    Well, he did say "on spurstalk". And the comedy factor shouldn't be disregarded, imo.

    "his moderation will come back"

    bull . His Repug Congress would write and pass the radical 99%-screwing/1%-enriching bills, and he'd sign everyone one of them, just as his people said he would have signed Ryan's budget that House voted up twice.

    Even Rick Scott Can’t Find Virtually Any Non-Citizen Voters

    Earlier this year, Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) began a massive voter purge that initially targeted as many as 180,000 individuals to be removed from the state’s voter rolls. It quickly emerged, however, that Scott’s lists were deeply flawed — in one case, a 91 year-old decorated World War II veteran received a purge letter falsely informing him that “you are not a U.S. Citizen” — and the purge was eventually halted after Florida’s county elections officials, including 30 Republicans, rebelled against the purge.
    Throughout this ordeal, which also included a U.S. Department of Justice lawsuit challenging the purge and a pledge by a top Scott Administration official to restart the purge, Scott insisted this purge was necessary to prevent non-citizen voters from changing the result of the 2012 election.

    Now, Scott has begun a second voter purge, albeit under greater scrutiny after the debacle that was his first attempt to prevent Floridians from voting. Despite Scott’s previous claims that non-citizen voting is a major problem worthy of a massive voter purge, his own data now undermines this claim. After comparing a state database of drivers licenses with a federal database of immigration records, Rick Scott’s Florida barely uncovered any potential non-citizen voters:




    In total, Scott’s quest for non-citizen voters flagged only 198 names of registered voters who may not be U.S. citizens — and this is in a state where over 8 million people voted in the last presidential election. Of these 198 possible non-citizens, only 39 have actually ever voted. If any of the 198 names identified by Scott’s new purge turn out to be non-citizens — itself an uncertain proposition — the most likely explanation for why many of them became registered to vote is that they accidentally registered while filling out paperwork to receive a driver’s license, not that the alleged non-citizens intentionally tried to register illegally.

    http://thinkprogress.org/justice/201...itizen-voters/



    Where is Katherine Harris when the Repugs REALLY need here (again!)?
    TALLAHASSEE — Florida's county election supervisors are frustrated and dismayed by the state's latest effort to strip some suspected noncitizens from the voter rolls less than six weeks before a presidential election.

    The second voter purge, a joint effort by the state and counties that unofficially began Wednesday, is not off to a much better start than the first one.

    Some county elections officials say they are receiving names of people whom they have already removed from the rolls because they have admitted they are not U.S. citizens.

    There's also a matter of timing. With 39 days until Election Day, local officials say they can't comply with notice requirements before removing voters, meaning some noncitizens could cast ballots in Florida, the situation Gov. Rick Scott wanted most to avoid.

    The state flagged 198 voters of questionable U.S. citizenship by comparing a state database of drivers with a federal citizenship database at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The state released a list showing 38 of them have voted in elections, at least two of them in the Aug. 14 primary. (Earlier, the state said 39 people on the list had voted.)

    The new list of names went public Wednesday, and backup do ents are being sent through the U.S. mail to counties, who will get it in the coming days and begin tracking down people of questionable citizenship as they continue to prepare for the Nov. 6 general election.

    Most people on the new list are in Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach and Bay counties. All are a subset of an earlier list of about 2,600 suspected noncitizen voters that the state released in May.

    In Orlando, Orange County elections chief Bill Cowles sees a redundancy: Five of 12 su ious Orange voters on his new list have already been removed from the rolls after signing a do ent admitting they lacked U.S. citizenship.

    "These people already signed the paperwork from the first go-round," Cowles said.

    That first list was fraught with legal and political problems. The state suspended its purge effort of suspected noncitizens after elections officials discovered many were U.S. citizens, and opted to wait until it obtained access to the Homeland Security data.

    Now, some officials wonder about the new list.

    "We're on hold," said Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher. "When we get the backup do entation, we'll make a determination as to whether it's credible. It wasn't credible last time."

    In Broward County, where 23 voters are listed as potential noncitizens, elections official Mary Cooney said there's not enough time to complete the removal process before the Nov. 6 election.

    "While some individuals may submit do entation to remove themselves, the election would occur before . . . the process would be completed," Cooney said.

    State elections spokesman Chris Cate said Florida has a high level of confidence that all 198 people on the list are not U.S. citizens. He said the purge effort would resume after the election, with other groups of voters being reviewed.

    Jesus jumped-up christ...

    How much taxpayer money went to catch 0.002475% of the total votes cast? Srsly?

    Two thousandths of a percent.

    For which they will spend millions of dollars to correct the problem. (tens of millions?)

    If you mean email is like my mail as in it allows you to sign up for stupid mailing lists which you then subsequently spam every junkmail advertisement you get from then I agree.

    People bash junkmail all the time. It's your own private drudge report.

    I see an article on voter registration irregularities. I have no comment about these allegations and the article is very short on detailed substantive information. It's not like the FBI raided them like they did with ACORN.

    You need to get a donut pillow for that butthurt, Chump.

    where's your curiosity, indeed, your outrage? mere allegations never prevented you from airing swift, full-throated denunciations of Blue team . . .

    Uhhh....guys...the Republicans are the ones that filed the complaint.

    State Republican officials already have fired the vendor it had hired to register voters, and took the additional step of filing an election fraud complaint against the company, Strategic Allied Consulting, with state officials. That complaint was handed over Friday to state law-enforcement authorities.

    I think he means that your mission of paradoxically ignoring the thing that you used to be outraged against is accomplished.
