Safe Mode: On
Florida Investigating Potential Non-Citizen Voters

http://miami.cbslocal.com/2012/05/08/exclusive-florida-investigating-potential-non-citizen-voters/


MIAMI (CBS4) – In a new crackdown, Florida officials are
investigating the citizenship of thousands of registered voters. CBS4
News has learned 2,000 of those potential non-citizen voters are
registered in Miami-Dade County. At least one person on the list has had
the opportunity to vote for the past 40 years.
“These are the people that we have to notify by mail that we have a
reason to believe that they’re a non-citizen,” said Christina White,
Deputy Supervisor of Elections.

Miami-Dade is not alone. Broward is looking at 260 registered voters and Monroe is investigating four.


Numbers are important in elections. After all, the 2000 presidential election was decided by just over 500 votes.


“So it’s very important that voter registration rolls are accurate
and only people who are eligible, are able to vote,” White told CBS4′s
Gio Benitez.
It’s unclear if any of these people have ever voted. The new
information simply shows they can vote. Each person has 30 days to
respond to the County’s inquiry asking them to prove their citizenship.
Up until recently, no proof of citizenship was required when registering
to vote.
“So, if we find out after the fact that you are actually a
non-citizen, and you are registered to vote, then we would report you to
the State Attorney’s office,” said White.
The State Attorney may charge anyone unlawfully registered to vote with a felony.


“So if you are not [a citizen] and you check the box on the
registration form that says that you are [a citizen], we are required to
register you to vote, because you are taking that under oath.”
Broward Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes supports the investigation of non-citizen voters.


“As someone who has to uphold the laws of the state of Florida for
elections, it’s totally inappropriate for that person to have been
voting, if that’s the case,” said Snipes.
White says, in Miami-Dade, the potential non-citizen voters are a
small percentage of the 1.2 million registered voters in Miami-Dade.
“So I don’t want to send an alarming message that we have a lot of non-citizens on our registration rolls,” she sa

  • how retarded is this.

    This makes as much sense as a bank that allows anyone to withdraw money from an account, as long as they fill in a checkbox asserting that they are the authorized account holder.

    But oh-boy, if the bank finds out, later on, that they were not the real account holder, there will be an investigation!


    In both cases, the election, or the bank acount, by the time the crime is discovered, the damage is done.

    Which party again does not support any voter-ID laws?

    • @Loomfries
      They have over 5,000 people who got driver's Licenses in maine, all using the same Social Security number. Many States have such a low criteria for a DL, and don'tcheck national databases at all (some are prohibited by their state fro doing so) that it is way to easy in some places.
      And thanks to Obama and his Motor Voter law, everybody who gets a driver'slicense,leag or not, citizen or not, get s a chance to register when they get their phota card done. The employees are prohibited More..

    • @grunt

      The State DL criterias are total bullshit I'd agree. And the Motor Voter law did open the vulnerabilities which many may consider "fraud". But Obama's Motor Voter? ACORN was forced to dissolve a couple years ago so now has no "control" over this. The Motor Voter "movement" actaually started during the Clinton days and was then "controlled" for by the time the Bush Admin came in.

      Remember even Neocons want their form of deregulating fraud.

      Obama led the charge, with ACORN, when he was a Senator.
