With the as I am so what's wrong with this Hawaiian packet dead did people off the rules of their stood there on the air and get rid of them and not good to prevent -- happens.
Mishandling a fraud out there why why.
Right I think Eric Holder is suggesting that from the federal government has a responsibility.
This isn't necessarily just.
Their prerogative they're not picking and choosing but what that the Florida governor Rick Scott is doing is essentially creating another obstacle for people to vote.
And anytime you have to.
Say to -- a person hey look we think you might not be a citizen why don't you come back to us and proved to -- -- citizen and you know give us your Social Security number inside.
Listen if ever a 100000 names of people who are actually deceased on those roles for example right and they tried to go to Tamil Homeland Security why his Homeland Security -- providing that access to them what they're asking Homeland Security for is information on citizenship which I did.
Absolutely not what Homeland Security as an agency was created to do it's not in their mandate.
And it's not a good use of the Homeland Security agency's time to be meddling in you know voting and and voting registration -- yourself.
Look what what.
Any anybody will tell you who's watching this note.
They know that Florida has -- really awful track record when it comes to giving people -- and he's devoting the ability to vote really easily.
This is nothing really it.
Less than voter suppression efforts in and creating another hurdle for people who -- and why it seems a little suspect to me at -- people.
And the regions that Rick Scott is targeting.
Just happen to be maybe coincidentally maybe not maybe -- to tell us.
And predominantly -- democratic districts so.
Obviously with an important presidential campaign.
And and different a statewide elections on the horizon.
It's massive real put this is nation -- -- -- voting for fans.
They never let them rest racism now -- -- competitive -- it's -- and -- like it.
You gotta love Eric Holder and you have to love what this administration does because right as they are up against the wall on this fast and furious investigation.
They come out with this lawsuit.
Which is intended to try and dried up a racial wedge on this on this particular issue and they make the implicit argument that.
Governor Perry the folks in South Carolina and these other states are trying to do something that is inherently racist.
By enacting voter ID laws and trying to protect the integrity of the process.
Put the facts are the facts.
Most Democrats in this country are in favor -- voter ID laws in this type of this type of of -- based on one.
Based on based on the polls.
In a recent poll of independents -- favored it 87%.
Of Republicans it is very very clear.
That the people of this country want to protect the integrity of the system.
They don't want folks mucking around they don't want dead people voting they don't want illegal aliens voting they don't want.
Convicted felons who deny the ability to vote participating in the process and there's nothing there's nothing wrong.
In the eyes of the American people and doing something that you and I have to do every day we probably showed showed our driver's license or our government issued ID.
What maybe four or five times today for different for different reasons and this is the most.
The most fundamental most important thing that we can do participating in are asking why do you say -- as a Florida is suspect always -- comes to these kinds of things but Florida just.
Is suspect because I mean look at 2004 -- look at 2000 as is I mean their ability to register and execute.
Elections has been.
Tom can say it all the polls he wants them what the American people think is raped her should be you know it's favorable the American people don't necessarily have all the -- they don't spend a lot of time every day thinking about.
Voting rights and voting registration and frankly when the Civil Rights Act.
Or the devoting my voting rights act and in 1964 with Lyndon Johnson and also again in 1965.
These things weren't always overwhelmingly popular politically popular but they were the right thing to do it it's matter of justice the Justice Department has.
Review and -- -- that's outside of what what is you know politically popular to do.
And it's a matter of civil rights yourself can't -- you're talking about.
Onerous you're suggesting that somebody showing Heidi -- already going for re registered there are -- able to go down to an agency gets after spending.
You know five hours in.
Home Depot and working in twelve hour day or doing whatever it is that people do at the end of the day be effective this is if you get a letter in the mail saying hey.
We're gonna bump you off the voter -- must you come down to the registry and and register to vote once more.
A good percentage of people.
Unfortunate as it may be aren't going to do that and the effect is going to be they're not going to they're -- and maybe go to the polling place on Election Day and realize -- -- it's not and I'm not able to you know -- you need tonight.
You know it hasn't expired yet it has another three years on it come down to the Department of Motor Vehicles you have three days to do it.
In your busy life.
I know how busy your I -- if I I would have to go (%expletive) what you would have I have to drive yeah I know everybody has to vote people people it if they if they if they want to vote.
And they should vote and these are people who who are you care about this particular exercising this right if they care about as every American should about protecting the system.
Then if somebody's.
Citizenship -- -- question.
I would want to clear that -- citizenship is in question the governor of the state of Florida should get in touch with the immigration and naturalization -- to get in touch with the -- -- back to Washington to total wash our agency -- now we're gonna help or -- -- local jurisdiction to Percy had -- to prosecute that but if if he has some evidence or some credible suggestion that.
These people on the voter rolls are somehow illegal or dead.
Or whatever the case may be he should -- process that he should investigate that locally and stuff we rely on federal government on their primary.
