Demand Florida Gov. Scott Stop Purging Americans From Voter Rolls
Some people think that voter profiling only hurts Latino voters and other groups that usually targeted by anti-voter rules.
In Florida, Gov. Rick Scott has a plan to purge up to 180,000 voters from the rolls. One voter, 91-year old World War II veteran Bill Internicola, is an early victim of the effort. And if we don't take action now, he won't be the last.
Born in Brooklyn, NY, Bill now lives in Florida, where he's just been unfairly purged from the voter rolls. The letter he received from the Broward County Board of Elections gave him 30 days to respond with proof of citizenship.
If voter profiling like this can happen to someone like Bill, it can happen to anyone of us.
That's why I've partnered with Voto Latino to launch America4America, my campaign to push back against shady laws like this one, and make sure that every voter has a voice in November.
Bill's story isn't unique. But it is living, undeniable proof that these laws have real consequences, and when concerned Americans like us raise the alarm, we're not crying wolf -- we're crying foul.
November's elections may feel far away, but we have to act now to fight unfair rules wherever we find them, and make sure voters know about the laws that could take them out of our political process.
Stand with me and Voto Latino and sign this petition, demanding that Florida Gov. Rick Scott stop this unfair process immediately.
