Florida 2000 theft all over again??

The National Memo
--- Sponsored Email ---
Dear National Memo Reader:

Voter suppression is happening in Florida. Again. And that is anathema to democracy. Please read this important message from People For the American Way to learn what you can do to make sure that the voice of every American is heard on Election Day.

Don't let what happened in Florida in 2000 happen again 2012!
Stop the Right's efforts to steal the election in a critical swing state -- Tell FL Gov. Rick Scott to stop the voter purge!
sign the petition
Dear Activist ,
Do you remember the Florida debacle in the 2000 presidential race? At the time, news focused on the recount and the spectacle of the infamous "hanging chad." But when the dust settled, America learned that the real affront to democracy was the flawed purge of eligible voters from the voting rolls in advance of the election.
The state that ultimately decided the election for George W. Bush by a mere 537 votes hired a firm to purge ex-felons -- who had lost their right to vote according to state law -- from the voter file. But the data match was so sloppy that countless eligible voters, mostly African American, were scrubbed from the file and turned away from the polls on Election Day.
Now, under Florida's Tea Party governor, Rick Scott, it's happening all over again! Don't let the Right steal this one!
Florida has begun a purge of "non-citizens" from the voting rolls and reports are saying that hundreds of eligible voters have already been struck from the rolls.
Members of Congress from Florida and PFAW members called on Gov. Scott to STOP THE PURGE. Now, the Department of Justice, which had previously warned Florida that its purge was illegal, is suing the state after Scott and his Secretary of State said they would defy the DOJ's warning.
Florida has already put out an initial list of more than 2,600 people identified as non-U.S. citizens and has indicated it could aim to purge up to 180,000 supposed non-citizens from the rolls ... but from all the inaccuracies we've seen so far, that could mean a staggering number of eligible voters being wrongfully purged and denied their right to vote.
This process is going forward with no oversight, and is all too reminiscent of the scrub orchestrated in 2000 by Secretary of State Katherine Harris under then-Gov. Jeb Bush. Under Gov. Scott, Florida has already erected barriers to voter registration that hurt minority and low-income voters... now, the state's right-wing leaders seem to be dredging up ugly tactics from the past in what looks like naked, politically motivated voter suppression.
Hundreds of eligible voters have already been scrubbed from the rolls and many more have not replied to a letter that informs them they will lose their right to vote if they don't reply with proof of citizenship. Despite the clear inaccuracy of the purge, the burden is on registered voters to prove that they are eligible, not on the state to prove that they are not.
This is wrong. You know it, I know it and if we can focus more attention on this disaster in the making, more Americans will know it. And we'll be able to stop it.
Thank you for standing up for the right to vote and the American Way.
-- Ben Betz, Online Strategy Manager

Friday's Daily Brief: White House Stops Deportations, Pentagon Gay Pride, Yemen Fighting, Plus Ricky Gervais, Marlo Thomas, Russell Simmons

Marlo Thomas: Gloria Steinem: The Original Ms.
When I first met Gloria Steinem more than 40 years ago, the world was a different place. The women's movement was just beginning, and so Gloria became not only my new friend, but also my touchstone on the many issues that confronted us on the front lines of feminism. We did a lot of talking and reading back then, Gloria and me, but she took it one step further in 1972, co-founding Ms. Magazine, which would ultimately become -- and remain -- the bible of the women's movement.
Ricky Gervais: Out With the Old, In With the New
First the bad news... I don't think I'm going to do a fourth series of The Ricky Gervais Show. 39 episodes is more than I've ever done for any other project (Yes. I know that's pathetic but trust me.) and I don't want to push my luck.
Russell Simmons: So a Rabbi and a Hip-Hop Mogul Go to Israel...
This coming Sunday, Father's Day, is a day that reminds us of our responsibility as men to stand up and model for our children the right path to follow. Next week, I am taking my first trip to Israel with my partner Rabbi Marc Schneier to promote Muslim and Jewish reconciliation.
