"Catch-22" Florida Voter Registration Law Struck Down
Just to refresh our memories... This pernicious piece of legislation imposes a $250 fine for each voter registration form submitted more than 10 days after collection, a $500 fine for each form submitted after the deadline, and uses a "strict liability" standard. (i.e., Your office gets wiped out by hurricane Ernesto? Tough!) But what happens if a group gets in trouble and decides not to submit the forms? Well then the fine goes up to $5000 per. Sweet, huh? Political parties are exempted of course.
Now lets hope that Ohio and Ken Blackwell gets the same kind of treatment from the courts.
it's just people think they can keep fooling the american public...
but it looks like we have some kick-ass judges out there!!
As you said, kick ass judges!
Thanks for that entry Kvatch.
Fingers crossed that the reptile in Ohio gets his ass handed to him with similar legislation soon and again by defeat in November. He's gotta be getting desperate as we approach September and he's still trailing (solid) by double-digits. And this despite recent Ohio visits by the Snarlin' DarkLord Dick & the monkey-in-a-mansuit. Ohio will be a tough STEAL at this point no matter what. The Republican TV ads are starting to come more frequently- and guess what- ALL NEGATIVE. The mud-slinging is upon us once again and as usual, the Republicans have started it.
