Democrats Flip Flopping on Election Reform as Democracy Burns

by Global Evildoer Fighter @ 12:00 AM EDT

Even While the Republican Governor of Florida (of all people and places) Restores Felon Voting Rights, Calls for a Ban on Touch-Screen DRE Voting, and Otherwise Succeeds in Shaming the Democrats...

Florida's new Republican Gov. Charlie Crist continues to get far in front of Congressional Democrats concerning issues of Election Reform. Previously, he has called for the Sunshine State to replace all DRE touch-screen voting systems with paper-based optical scan systems (and touch-screen ballot marking devices for the disabled) and today, he succeeded in restoring voting rights for former felons to all but the most violent criminals after they've served their time.

While Democrats in Congress, and their public-advocacy group supporters such as People for the American Way (PFAW), MoveOn, Common Cause, and VoteTrustUSA, continue to dally around the edges of reform vis-a-vis Rep. Rush Holt's Election Reform Bill (HR811) in the House and a forthcoming companion bill from Dianne Feinstein in the Senate, shamefully, it's the Republican Florida Governor --- of all people --- who is proving to be the true Progressive in the fight for real reform.

Hi GEF

Geez...Brad has opened up a can of worms...I would like to think that the democratic is having a hard time maintaining focus on multiple issues in these weird times.

Putting the spotlight on it should help. Maybe congress should be reminded about this if they haven't allready. I wonder if they can walk, see, be, and chew gum at the same time...lol

Hey Geezer!

Yep, Brad opened up another can of worms..and voting fraud needs to be eliminated!

Geezer,

This issue needs to be nipped in the Bud by November 2008 and both parties keep stonewalling it!

We the People are disenfranchised at the Voting booth...

We will continue to film, badger and whistle blow on officials until it gets solved.

This issue is not going away quietly...

Too much at stake!
