    Gov. Scott suing federal government in attempt to purge voter roles



    PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. -- Governor Rick Scott spent a busy day in our area. He started with a bill signing in Boca Raton and later toured the Riviera Beach marina. City officials are hoping Scott can help them with a $15 million marina expansion project.

    Tonight Gov. Scott is making waves for a different matter. Late this afternoon Scott decided to sue the federal government in an attempt to purge the voter roles of non-citizens. He made the surprise announcement after talking about the situation in Boca Raton.

    Governor Scott not backing down, vowing for a long fight. Demanding to be able to check the citizenship status of registered voters against federal databases. But the U.S. government isn't cooperating. This is what the governor said this morning in Boca Raton.

    Gov. Scott: I believe the federal government is going do the their job and give us the save database, allow us to do our job. Clearly there shouldn't be a debate about this. It's clear people have registered to vote, that weren't entitled. They voted, it's not right, it's a crime.

    But just a few hours later Governor Scott announced of the Fox News Channel that he was suing to get the needed information to check to make sure all registered voters are legally allowed to vote.

    As a result of Florida suing the federal government over the voter purge debate, the Department of Justice has decided to counter-sue the state. The federal lawsuit seeks to prevent Florida from removing any voters from the current voting roles.Gov. Scott suing federal government in attempt to purge voter roles

    So, Holder and Obama don't want names of illegals off the voter rolls? There is only one reason for that. Obama needs those illegal aliens' vote.

    ‘Considering suing’ and actually suing are clearly two different things.

    It’s obviously a stunt and bluff on the part of Scott, trying only to appease his rightist base.

    Obama Suing Florida - and Vice Versa - Over Voter Registration

    6/11/12 By Kevin Glass

    The state of Florida recently engaged in a campaign to fight voter fraud, combing through their voter rolls to weed out illegitimately-registered voters. While they've been accused of invalidating legal voters' registrations, the effort has been having some modicum of success.

    n the last few days, the Division of Elections released a list of the names of 86 voters it says have been removed by local supervisors because they were non-citizens between April 11 and June 8. About half of them are listed as having voted.
    That, backers of the purge effort say, proves the need for the move, because it shows that some non-citizens have indeed registered and cast votes.
