Florida GOP Takes Voter Suppression to a Brazen New Extreme

Here is another attempt by Republicans in Florida to suppress A. American and Hispanic voters.

Here is an excerpt:

Imagine this: a Republican governor in a crucial battleground state instructs his secretary of state to purge the voting rolls of hundreds of thousands of allegedly ineligible voters. The move disenfranchises thousands of legally registered voters, who happen to be overwhelmingly black and Hispanic Democrats. The number of voters prevented from casting a ballot exceeds the margin of victory in the razor-thin election, which ends up determining the next President of the United States.
