By Javier ManjarresGovernor Rick Scott and Secretary of State Ken Detzner have been pressuring President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security to gain access their SAVE database in order to cross-check the state’s voter rolls. The “voter purge” as it is being popularly called has prompted attorneys from the Department of Justice to request that Florida stop its “purge” of illegal voters.
Predictably, the Department of Homeland Security is not so much interested enforcing the laws that are broken by illegal foreign nationals, something that should obviously fall under the jurisdiction of the “Homeland Security” Administration.
The Shark Tank recently spoke to Governor Scott about this very issue-
I’m optimistic that the Department of Justice will have the same goal as I will, to ensure that Florida voters are protected, only citizens that have a right to vote will register to vote and vote. –Governor Rick Scott
Excuse the inaudible audio-bad reception, coupled with an caverness room, affected the quality of the audio recording.We asked Governor Scott as to what could be done should the 67 supervisors of elections throughout the state would not follow through on his request to remove illegal voters from the voter rolls, to which Governor Scott replied that “they are obligated to remove anyone from their rolls…they took the oath of office to do so”.
