Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist has written an editorial condemning the state’s ongoing voter purge and criticizing “zealots overreacting to contrived threats of voter fraud by significantly narrowing the voting pool.” “Cynical efforts at voter suppression are driven by an un-American desire to exclude as many people and silence as many voices as possible,” Crist writes. “Our country has never solved anything with less democracy, and we’re far better off when more citizens can access the polls — no matter which party mobilizes the most voters to them.”
