Voter registration mailer addressed to deceased dog -- GazetteXtra
The official-looking mailing she received about two weeks ago was addressed to Molly Damrow.
Molly died last fall.
Molly was a dog.
The mailing from the Voter Participation Center suggested Molly should register to vote. Enclosed was a form with Molly's name and address already filled in.
Complete the form and send it to the state Government Accountability Board "today!" the letter said.
"Our records show that you are eligible to vote in the 2012 presidential election," it said. "All you need to do is fill out the attached registration form."
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. - John Stuart Mill
I'm a resident of Florida, and we gonna kick the **** out of the Obama Administration on this ... and then we're going to be key in voting that lard-ass out of office.
Obama is a cancer on the Republic.
"The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."
-- Adam Smith
"Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence." - John Adams
As the link notes, however, this issue is more than simply cleaning up the legal voter list. While I believe Gov. Scott is wrong to deprive citizens their right to vote, the Obama administration, specifically DHS, is wrong to deny access to the SAVE database as noted in the link.The purge, they point out, has snared dozens of native-born people and others who are legally eligible to vote, including African Americans, naturalized Haitians and Latinos — and a decorated World War II combat veteran.

Not sure why all the "sky if falling" rhetoric is being spewed. This process isn't an instant purge. You get notified that you're on the potential purge list. If it's in error, you have 30 days to provide the proof otherwise. Even if you move and never get the notice, you can still vote. You show up, you discover you're removed from the rolls. You can still cast a provisional ballot in which you have 48 hours to provide the documentation needed for your vote to count.
Another thing, you keep seeing the bits about elligible voters purged, what about the ones that aren't elligible.
