Political Scientist Dr. Wilmer Leon explains why Florida "voter fraud" is a partisan faux issue that could negatively impact this year's election....
"Republican voter suppression could negate the votes of five million Americans, and potentially sway the 2012 election. “The very people who claim they want to ‘take their country back’; want to ‘restore America to its original ideals’; and ‘protect liberty for all Americans” are working insidiously to deny the franchise to a significant number of American citizens.” Mass disenfranchisement proceeds apace, even though there is almost no voting fraud in America.”
"Republicans are using the pretext of "voter fraud" as the rationale for their unconstitutional attack on democracy and, specifically, voters who are more inclined to vote for a Democrat. The actual fraud is not being perpetrated by the voter; it's being perpetrated by the Republican elected officials who continue to tell this lie. "
