Nearly 200,000 Florida Voters May Not Be Citizens

Tallahassee, FL - May 11, 2012 --

Florida officials are now saying that nearly 200,000 voters may not be U.S. citizens.

Earlier in the week, state election officials announced they had identified more than 2,600 people who are in Florida legally but ineligible to vote.

The Department of State is asking county election officials to verify the information. Election supervisors are contacting voters and if someone is not a citizen, their name will be dropped from the voter rolls.

But an initial list drawn up by the state -- and not widely released -- shows that a comparison of voter lists and driver's license information turned up a list of nearly 182,000 people who may not be U.S. citizens.

State officials, however, note that some of those on list may now be citizens.

    Blacks are proving to be our 1st line of defense as many are starting to make a stand against the hispanics recently as in the Trayvon Martin case. The only thing he had was skittles and iced tea. But he wasn't old enough to vote. But the hispanic was 28. But in that case I think he was a Peruvian. He was watching his neighborhood.

    In order to stop this from happening we need to take control of Mexico & make it into a State to control the voter overflow agenda of their take over of our system plus the ethnic cleansing that is going on. More people being slaughtered than any other place in the entire world & the people are getting so scared they are starting to stampede toward the border in droves like never before to come and vote for relief from our system.

    I really don't think it should be legal for certain political parties to compromise our country by letting illegals cross in ... Even taking steps to stop states from trying to stop it on their own... just because they BELIEVE that THOSE people will vote for them. That shows the propensity to disregard the good of our country for the sole purpose of gaining POWER by any means. Those polititians should be rounded up & tried in Court. It's a terrible travestry in the history of our nation. Time is running out for us to correct the situation... Once the guilty political party has enough voters to maintain the majority vote even though acquired by false pretenses of allowed illegal entry... in theory, there might be nothing left we could do about it. As long as there would be more freeloaders & criminals allowed to vote than there are of the rest of we responsible people... the outlaws would have the winning majority on their side. It's very likely our country could be being infiltered with drug lord people from the Mexican mobs at this time as we even speak. Many bodies are being displayed on roads with heads, hands, and feet cut off recently not far from the border with a very vicious agenda. There is something going on at the border. It could be a mission to increase the vote for Obama or the various states they want to target or infilter.

    it is very simple. If you are not here legally, no ID. NO ID, no vote. NO ID, no drive. NO ID and no visa/passport, no free pass.

    This is just the tip of the problem you are just now hearing about. Who are the ones that let them slide through, and how many years has it been going on, to dilute American citizens votes. And you wonder why we have such do nothings, waste, corruption and stealing the money for themselves. So, now you know.

    Must remember, the only people who do not want to clamp down on voter fraud are those who benefit from that fraud.

    Shouldn't the article refer to "registered voters" and not to "voters"? There is no proof even that any non-citizen has registered to vote. Sorry to interrupt the lynching party. One is not a voter until one has voted. Duh.

      From the original AP story..."Cate said the list of 182,000 people was drawn up by checking first and last names, date of birth and either a driver’s license number, a Social Security number or an address. Most of the matches had identical driver’s license numbers, names and birthdates. A state document shows that out of the nearly 182,000 identified that MORE THAN 172,000 WERE ACTIVE VOTERS, meaning they had cast ballots in recent elections or registered recently."

    This is not news to us that watch Fair and Balance news media. America is being carjacked by a relatively small group of wealthy Socialist that are in complete control of the mindless media. You don't have to be ignorant to be a Democrat, but it sure doesn't hurt. We can take back America with common sense now, but waiting will make it far more messy.
