Florida Officials Reverse Course, Prepare To Release Secret List Of 180,000 Potentially Ineligible Voters

CREDIT:

Florida elections officials have belatedly decided to release a followup list of 180,000 voters whose voting eligibility is being questioned by the state. Gov. Rick Scott (R-FL) rolled out Florida’s wildly inaccurate voter purge effort with primary list of only 2,625 possibly ineligible voters. Election officials originally refused to release the follow-up list, but yesterday agreed that the list is public record. The list will be released once driver’s license and Social Security numbers have been removed, and, because it is not being sent to county election officials, no voters on the list face being removed from the rolls at this time.
