"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
Brad Friedman, The Brad Blog, joins Thom Hartmann. Florida Governor Rick Scott has restarted his illegal voter purge in the sunshine states. Scott's listed of voters to be targeted as non-citizens and kicked off the rolls has been shown to be riddled with errors and overwhelmingly focused on minority voters who tend to vote for Democrats. But Governor Scott is pushing forward regardless. But this isn't the only way Republicans are trying to steal the election in Florida. News broke yesterday on the BradBlog - that the Florida Republican Party's top recipient of funding - a firm named Strategic Allied Consulting - has been in the business of turning in fraudulent voter registration forms. The Florida Republican Party has now cut ties with Strategic Allied Consulting - but not before dishing out more than $1.3 million in contracts to the firm this year. Also - this firm continues to be operating in the battle ground states around the nation - and also has affiliations with the Mitt Romney campaign.
