Politicians Are Poody Heads

and they're not the only ones…

Florida blinks…

on July 17, 2012

Despite their earlier claims that they’d ignore federal law, Florida’s governor Rick Scott has decided to postpone the voter list purge.  However, a list of 180,000 (largely Hispanic) names will be made available as a public record.

Releasing the list could be an election-year nightmare for Scott’s administration, which has acknowledged that the database is flawed. But Scott and [Secretary of State] Detzner have said that it is important for the state to comb its database to ensure that non-citizens are [not] allowed to “dilute” the votes of legitimate voters.

This follows the release of 2,700 names in April.  That list turned out to be unreliable, but the voters say they’re in favor of releasing such data.  In spite of the popularity of his ideas among Tea Partiers, Rick Scott shows up at the low-end of Florida’s political polls.
