The DOJ is investigating Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s illegal purge of Democratic voters

2 posts / 0 new

On Friday, the Justice Department filed court paper claiming the state is in violation of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. This is the latest move by the DOJ since it sent a formal letter to Governor Scott back in June demanding that he cease his voter purge efforts. The vast majority of those targeted to be kicked off the rolls thus far in Florida are minorities who actually are legal citizens.

As former Republican Party Chairman in Florida, Jim Greer, revealed in a lawsuit against his Party – Republicans in the Sunshine State openly discussed ways to prevent blacks from voting. That’s what’s going on today in Florida.

The other way we're subsidizing Walmart...

Most of us know how taxpayers subsidize Walmart's low wages with billions of dollars in Medicaid, food stamps, and other financial assistance for workers. But, did you know that we're also subsidizing the retail giant by paying the cost of their environmental destruction.
