By JAVIER MANJARRESIt is never a dull moment when Representative and Chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, pens an op-ed in the sunny South Florida quasi-liberal Sun-Sentinel newspaper.
Wasserman Schultz stated her opinion that Florida Governor Rick Scott was “back at it,” after announcing that he was going to continue his clean up of Florida’s “voter rolls” of any “noncitizen” voters.
Yes, Wasserman Schultz is taking issue with Rick Scott because he wants to eliminate any illegally registered “noncitizen” voters from having the opportunity to illegally cast their vote in U.S. upcoming elections.
According to the federal government’s official election information portal, USA.gov, only “U.S. Citizens” are eligible to vote. But don’t take my word for it, go to the site yourselves.
While ‘DWS’ is trying to scare potential future voters into thinking that Republicans are simply cheating by trying to “shrink the electorate,” what she is most likely doing is pandering for votes, specifically the Hispanic vote.
To be eligible to vote, you must be a U.S. citizen. In most states, you must be 18 years old to vote, but some states do allow 17 year olds to vote. States also have their own residency requirements to vote. For additional information about state-specific requirements and voter eligibility, contact your state election office.-USA.gov
Here is what she wrote regarding the 180,000 “potential noncitizens” Rick Scott and his administration identified to be purged in 2012.
But are Republicans the ones committing voter fraud, or are the Democrats the real culprits?
Too often, these Republican-led so-called anti-voter fraud efforts are nothing more than thinly veiled attempts to disqualify voters that reek of politics.
Such is the case in Florida. Of the 180,000 potential noncitizens identified for purging in 2012, less than 0.02 percent were actually ineligible. Nearly 60 percent of those included in the initial list were Hispanic — meanwhile, Hispanic voters make up only 13 percent of Florida’s electorate.-Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz
Wasserman Schultz’s very own friend and colleague in the U.S. Congress, Representative Joe Garcia (D-FL), has been implicated in an absentee ballot request voter fraud probe, where his Chief of Staff and close friend was forced to resign for his alleged involvement.
Jeffrey Garcia, Congressman Garcia’s friend and former CoS, was also consulting Democratic Congressman Patrick Murphy’s campaign against Congressman Allen West at the time of the incident, raising questions of whether or not he employed the same alleged voter fraud tactics in that congressional race.
And let’s not forget the little old black lady in Ohio, who because she admitted to voting for President Obama 6 times, is now going to prison for 5 years for committing voter fraud. She is a registered Democrat, in case you were wondering what her political affiliation was.
Again, only “U.S. Citizens” are eligible to vote in the United States. This would exclude any Resident Aliens, anyone on a student, work, or tourist visa, in addition to any other ‘noncitizens’ currently residing in the country. The law is pretty clear.hare and “Like and share” the story below. Leave a comment.
