A federal judge has refused to stop Florida from removing potentially non-U.S. citizens from its rolls.

Now, here is a judge who has his head screwed on straight. Nice piece of work and I like how he took apart the phoney Injustice Depart. argument that no purging could be done to anyone 90 days before the election. This is analyzing the law and reading it in a manner to reach a logical result.

You just look at the status of who is being purged and there you have it. Illegal aliens don't get to vote anyway.

I know there are plenty of folks who imagine that Obama and his AG Holder are devious and conniving but I think they re simply stupid.

They will appeal this all the way up to the Supreme Court. The more they keep the words “voter purge” in the news, the better it is for them.

Probably we just won the election in Florida in November! We need to make absolutely sure that all the “battleground states” purge their voter rolls too.

I wouldn’t say that as there is no such thing as a legitimate federal law on the subject of voter registration.

Kudos to this Judge.

The Obama/Holder crime team lost this one.

Thanks! I had to look up MALDEV.
I’m sure there will be others.
Maybe one for Perverts that cannot be aroused anymore?

All of the voter rolls should be purged every two years, and it will be up to you to re-register in person with a proper ID for the next.
