Posted on 07/14/2012 1:57:56 PM PDT by Kaslin
Earlier this year, the Obama Administration attempted to block Florida Governor Rick Scott's efforts to purge ineligible voters from Florida voter rolls. A review of drivers license data turned up 2,625 suspected ineligible voters. But the DOJ tried to stop the state from acting on this information.
Nearly two months later, and after getting smacked down by a judge, the Obama Administration is being ordered to help Florida clean up state voter rolls. This past week, the Department of Homeland Security agreed to let Florida access a law enforcement database to prevent non-citizens from voting.
The agreement, made in a letter to Florida Gov. Rick Scott's administration that was obtained by The Associated Press, grants the state access to a list of resident noncitizens maintained by the Department of Homeland Security. The Obama administration had denied Florida's request for months, but relented after a judge ruled in the state's favor in a related voter-purge matter.
It's not perfect. SAVE, or the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements can only identify people with an 'alien number', such as a green card holder or someone who has a work visa-in other words, people who are here legally but cannot vote. Those who are here illegally still slip under the radar. Still, Governor Scott told the AP that this is a "significant victory for Florida and for the integrity of our election system".
Officials in othe states such as Colorado are also seeking access to the SAVE database. Colorado's secretary of state, Scott Gessler says he wants to check the status of 5,000 registered voters.
Believe it when you see it.
What possible reason can there be to stop the purging of inelligible voters? What possible reason could one have to block this initiative? I am simply baffled by the actions of the Federal government.
I sometimes hope that sarcasm need not always be advertised with neon signs saying ‘sarcasm’.
The level of illegal voting in November will be astounding, and I fear decisive.

What the F*** is a list of non citizens? Illegals or something else? Why are they still here let alone on Voting lists.
If the fed did not allow access to their database and legal action to challange the election in nov would be weakened...
The dems will cheat their asses off but they are taking away any legal barriers to challenge the count

“Why are they still here let alone on Voting lists.”
They’re the corrupt and criminal lib-dems’ secret *voting franchise*, queuing-up for the Nov 6th assault.
Ten bucks says that ACORN has been given the contract by the Feds to “assist” Florida.
This is just another "we gave you a non-compromise compromise" moment that Alinskyites are so good at.
If you go to ANY agricultural town around the big lake they are full of nothing but ILLEGALS.
LaBelle, Pahoke’, South Bay, Belle Glades are majority illegal and ICE has NEVER been there.
Guess big sugar and big cattle and big citrus can buy off anything.
We hear so much about voter fraud by reprogramming the computers. This is nearly impossible, but voting over and over for people who do not show up is very possible.
Let's keep perspective on this. These measures are finding smallish pockets of illegal voters. The real breach is the massive Motor Voter fraud.
Who knows what the real numbers are, when Census Bureau won't even / cannot even count, nor even estimate, the number of illegals now in-country. My own guess ranges toward (including children born or brought here illegally) 30,000,000. The numbers put out by Census are a joke, and a useful lie participated in by all the PTB, both RiNO and 'Rat.
“Feds allow”” Even the article states the “feds” were “smacked down” by a judge. The feds aren’t “allowing” anything. They lost! But the headline must be spun to make zero (the “feds” here) not look bad.
They must believe all voter registration cards have two check boxes — White and Non-White. Further, they must believe that all cards with Non-White checked will be invalidated.
Vote fraud and election stealing are obviously the only reasons for failing to purge voter rolls.
