‘The Debate is Over’: FL’s ‘Non-Citizen’ Voter Purge Has Been a Spectacular, Disenfranchising Failure

Specifically, Harrington explained that she had mailed letters to the “potential non-citizens” by certified mail, return-receipt requested. If someone at that address acknowledged receipt by signing for the certified letter, and then the named individual failed to respond within 30 days, they would be automatically stricken from the rolls even though, as Harrington confirmed, she lacked independent verification that the individual was or was not a citizen — or that they even ever saw the letter.

According to FL law, if, after multiple attempts by the postal service, no one signed for the letter, notice is to be published in a legal ad in a local newspaper. Then, if the individual still failed to respond, he or she was removed by Harrington from the rolls.

Harrington conceded that she had no way of knowing whether those removed from the rolls had simply been away from home at the time of the attempted delivery of the certified letter. As she acknowledged during the interview, those voters could have been on vacation or even serving in the U.S. military overseas. Either way, since their non-citizenship has not been confirmed, they may find themselves surprised to learn they’ve been purged once they return to vote this November.

In 2011, 34 state legislatures introduced such bills, potentially disenfranchising up to 21 million voters.

“The Kochs, then, have a crafty strategy for commandeering the political process: spend vast sums not only for TV ads, “grassroots” campaigns, and think tanks that manipulate public opinion, but also on direct efforts to ensure that many of those who aren’t fooled are unable to vote anyway.”

Florida Official Behind Gov. Rick Scott’s Voter Purge Linked To $1 Billion Campaign Effort Against Obama

…But as Republic Report exclusively reported last month, the Center to Protect Patients’ Rights is part of a universe of front groups financed by David and Charles Koch, the petrochemical billionaires, as well as several other billionaires, as part of an election-influencing effort. New reports this week about the brothers’ strategy indicate that they will now use this constellation of front groups to finance $400 million of a $1 billion campaign in outside money to defeat President Obama and congressional Democrats. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Mitt Romney’s Super PAC, and several nonprofits controlled by Karl Rove, will furnish the other $600 million….
