Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner is continuing his statewide tour today to convince county election supervisors that the Scott Administration's second attempt at a voter-roll purge of noncitizens will be fair and accurate.
Detzner says state access to a federal immigration database of will make this year's purge far more accurate than the one last year that depended on drivers license information. Some county supervisors refused to cooperate, saying they didn't trust the data.
Florida Democratic Party chairwoman Allison Tant told reporters in a conference call today the purge should be called off.
"First they did it to look for dead people, then they did it to look for felons. Now they're looking for people with an "o" or an "a" after their name. This is complete and total suppression", Tant said. "It is an attempt to stop people from voting because you can't win an election fair and square without doing it."
