Florida Voter Purge Removes More Republicans, Ends Liberal Racism Narrative

Gov. Rick Scott

Sarah Rumpf posted yesterday about the Florida voter purge with an interesting spin.  MSNBC’s Martin Bashir, another bloviated ignoramus, commented on the event asking “Why is the Sunshine State in the midst of a purge that even Josef Stalin would admire?”  As Ken Shepherd of Newsbusters noted, “the purge,” by the way, is one admitted by a Democratic official in Broward County, Florida, to be “very, very microscopic” in nature.” However,” Bashir and company ran with a Miami Herald story that spotlighted a 91-year-old World War II veteran who was sent a letter by Broward County (Fla.) officials that questioned whether he was eligible to vote. Bill Internicola, who was awarded the Bronze Star for his bravery in battle, “one of many innocent victims in Gov. Rick Scott’s purge meant to reduce voter rolls in advance of November elections, Bashir insisted.”

Yet, ” a review of the Herald article itself makes abundantly clear the “purge” is anything but. Only 2600 notices were sent to voters who were believed to be noncitizens erroneously on the voter rolls. That amounts to a puny 0.023 percent of the state’s 11,323,464 currently-registered voters (see Florida Division of Elections website here).

Furthermore, according to the Orlando Sentinel:

Of the first 107 names reported purged by the state’s 67 county election supervisors through late last week, a Political Pulse analysis was able to identify 94 from voter registration rolls. Of those, 33 were Republicans and 32 were Democrats. Another 25 were officially “no party affiliation” and the remaining four were of other or of unknown party affiliation.

…The purge took out 41 white, non-Hispanic voters, 33 Hispanic voters and eight black, non-Hispanic voters, with the rest being either other races, or unknown. It also took out 55 men and 36 women, with the rest not identifying a gender.

As Rumpf noted, So…let me get this straight.

The evil, racist voter purge actually ended up dropping more Republicans than Democrats? More white men than minorities?

I agree. It’s very interesting.
