These people really hate to have people vote. The cult of tRump / Republican party know they are a minority. The know their ideas are unpopular. They know most people, the majority doesn’t agree with them. So they are trying hard to enforce minority rule as much and as long as possible. When did these people start to hate democracy? Was it when the religious took over? Was it when they realized how much free money they could grift? Hugs
Florida AG calls for investigation into Bloomberg-backed felon voting rights effort
Florida voters passed a measure in 2018 to restore voting rights to felons who have not been convicted of murder or sexual offenses and who had completed their sentences. Republicans in the state legislature responded by passing a law in 2019 requiring those felons to pay any outstanding fines and fees to consider their sentence complete. Voting rights groups sued over the law, comparing it to a poll tax, but an appeals court earlier this month ruled the law was constitutional.
“The right to vote is fundamental to our democracy and no American should be denied that right. Working together with the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition, we are determined to end disenfranchisement and the discrimination that has always driven it,” Bloomberg said in a statement on Tuesday after the initiative was announced.
Bloomberg spokesman Jason Schechter responded to the pushback by saying, “This transparent political ploy is just the latest example of Republicans attempting to keep Floridians disenfranchised.”
