Feds order Florida to halt ongoing push to remove ineligible voters from rolls.
Fox News ^ | June 1, 2012 | AP

TALLAHASSEE, Fla – Federal authorities are demanding that Florida halt its push to remove ineligible voters from the voter rolls.

In a move that comes just months before the state could play a pivotal role in the 2012 presidential election, the U.S. Department of Justice contends that the state is violating federal law in its effort to identify and remove ineligible voters.

The state's effort has already come under fire from local election supervisors who belong to both political parties, as well as Democratic members of Congress and voting rights groups.

Chris Cate, a spokesman for the Florida Department of State, said state officials were still reviewing the letter, but hinted Florida may fight federal authorities.

"Bottom line is we are firmly committed to doing the right thing and preventing ineligible voters from being able to cast a ballot," Cate said.

Florida, at the urging of Republican Gov. Rick Scott, began looking for non-U.S. citizens on its voter rolls last year. An initial search turned up as many as 182,000 registered voters who may not be U.S. citizens.

The corrupt, criminal, Holder-run, Dept of IN-Justice wants all the illegal/ineligible voters left on the rolls, instead of purged. Gosh, what a surprise!

How dare any State try to stop ineligible voters from voting.

Who the hell do they think they are?

Next thing you know they will require them to show up in person with a valid ID.

So, ah, federal law says that ineligible people can vote? Who knew?

The state should continue to remove ineligible voters and challenge the feds to make a scene over it. Proving that the corrupt National Socialist Democrat administration is trying to cheat by keeping illegal voters on the rolls would not look good for der Fuehrer and his gestapo agents at justice.

Personally, I'd prefer it stated a bit more strongly and include the horses they rode in on. Let 'em sue and keep cleaning up the voter rolls while justice grinds its wheels.

From the article:

“Earlier this year state officials sent to local election officials a much smaller list of more than 2,600 voters and asked supervisors to start the process to remove them from the rolls. Supervisors, however, have loudly questioned the accuracy of the list, with one GOP supervisor going on Twitter to show the picture of a U.S. passport of one voter found on the list. Earlier this week two Democratic members of Congress held a press conference with a World War II veteran whose citizenship had been questioned.”

I am ALL FOR getting dead people and non-citizens off the voting rolls!! However, it sounds like the State of Florida might need to develop a double-check system to make sure they aren’t bumping live citizens off the list.

Since the Obama Administration is lawless in continuing to implement ObaMAOcare, I strongly suggest that Florida continue getting INELIGBLE voters off the rolls.

It is funny/tragic/infuriating how lawless this Communist/Ayers/Hussein Obama Administration is.

***The state’s effort has already come under fire from local election supervisors who belong to both political parties***

Well then these ‘supervisors’ are not fit to serve in this capacity. Party affiliation is irrelevant.

They should be investigated to see if they themselves are U.S. citizens and can vote. I won’t hold my breath, though.

I think these voters can be vetted without too many issues, but it will cost millions to do it right. This half-assed effort runs the risk of de-legitimizing all such efforts in the future. Rick Scott needs to knock some heads together and get the funding to do a thorough job, given that Holder is looking over his shoulder.

I know of several couples of ‘Snowbirds’ who live/have DLs in FL-PA-NC-NY, and vote in all 4 states, when they’re there for primaries and GEs. It’s illegal as hell, but they don’t care; they do it anyway. I’ve quit trying to explain the illegality of it to them.

Agreed, but if they’re ineligible live voters, they need to get off the rolls. Eligibility is the issue.

Florida should tell Holder to stuff it & continue to purge the voter rolls. Let him take Florida to court. Such an important case might take months or years to resolve. Note that every time Rats bring bogus arguments before an unbiased judge, they lose.

We have one . You have to show picture ID to vote in Florida , DL or state issued ID . All new DL renewals in Florida require you to bring your birth certificate , your passport if you were not born in the USA and or your naturalization papers . If you have had a name change since your birth such as in marriage you are required to bring the certificate proving you were married . If they have pulled these name it is most likely because these people have renewed the DL and shown that they are not eligible to vote here .Voter registration in Florida is also done where they issue your DL and it is now tied to it . THis program started this year as the years progress they will end up finding many more that are not are not suppose to be voting here .

We have a huge problem with non citizens voting , we have a huge problem with northerners who only live here in the winter voting in our elections . These people are turning the tides of the elections in this state . This state for the most part is conservative .

As far as questioning the citizenship of a WWII veteran goes well not all veterans were/are citizens . I have a family member myself who served during WWII as a US Marine and he was not born in this country nor was he a citizen when he served , he had a green card . Don't assume that all veterans are citizens as some of them do have green cards and they are not suppose to vote .Most do end up becoming citizens though

First, we'd have to see proof (a real BC) that Obama was the child of two AMERICAN citizens.

The ALLEGED father was not even an American Citizen.
