Court: Voter purge can move forward, but with different list

Source: Bay News 9

TALLAHASSEE --
Florida's voter purge can go forward -- but they need a new list.

A US district judge ruled Wednesday that Florida's efforts to remove ineligible voters from the rolls was in line with federal law.

The Department of Justice demanded the state stop the voter purge earlier this month because the purge was happening too close to the August 14 primary election.

State officials asked local election supervisors to check out the citizenship status of more than 2,600 voters. While more than 100 non-U.S. citizens have been removed supervisors have also discovered more than 500 people on the list were U.S. citizens.

2. just curious

but what recourse can people take whove been illegally removed from rolls and are denied their right to vote?

i mean, one would assume you could sue the shit out of the state and the fed for something like that if you can prove youre registered and have been voting for years

3. It's still within the 90 days before an election

so they still cannot legally do it until after the primary. But that is still no go...The election is only 2months and 3 weeks after the primary, so they still can't legally do it.

CORRECT.

And it is legal (these 'purge' lists). NOT the way they are doing it though.... This is what matters.

And they will CONTINUE to do this EVERYWHERE. They will continue to use our time and our resources until the root issues are dealt with.

They WILL eventually get what they want if this is not done. It is WHY they do what they DO.


PERIOD.

The ROOT issue as I see it is simple: TREASON

That is, what it is.

The progression continues...

IF people would acknowledge that, and that is JUST, then you have THEM by the balls. It is TIME for ACTION.

AND we can start dealing with real problems...

PEOPLE NEED TO PUT THE REAL PICTURE TOGETHER. DO NOT LET THEM DO IT FOR YOU. OTHERWISE IT CONTINUES.
THEY ALREADY KNOW WHAT THEY DO. THEY DONT WANT YOU TO KNOW IT. THIS, F&F,






ALL OF IT.

9. NOW

 

if NONE of this HAPPENS. Then you either MOVE, or you open the NEXT Chapter of what this BOOK IS.

It is your choice and it is a very SIMPLE one.


Meanwhile, the progression continues....and the clock ticks. This is the real world. SEE it for what it is, anything else ultimately is a waste of time.

10. Here's what I don't understand

The notices sent out by the State of Florida tell people they have been removed from the voter lists and it's up to the individual to prove they are legally registered.

I spent my entire working career in the field of law. It was always my understanding that one's rights couldn't be taken away without due process of law (i.e., a trial and conviction). And furthermore, under the Constitution people are considered innocent until proven guilty.

So how can the state, without a trial and conviction, unilaterally declare that an individual is deprived of his/her right to vote? Isn't there something basically wrong with this? It's utterly backwards -- they should prove that an individual is illegally registered to vote before depriving them of their right to vote.

What am I missing here?

11. What I don't understand is how the judge can make that ruling.

"Ninety days of an election" is not what one might call an ambiguous phrase. And even the Republicans have not yet been able to change the definition of a "day."
