Feds order Florida to halt ongoing push to remove ineligible voters from rolls.

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.

This is what happens when the COWARDS in the House kick the can down the road when it comes to Holder’s impeachment. This man is evil.

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.

Florida should invite Holder to sent the National Guard down to Florida to ensure the voting rights of Illegal Aliens and Snowbirds who are also registered to vote up North.

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.
