The California Democratic Party continues to make a recall enthusiast out of me. The latest? Pre-emptively comparing the whole exercise to—wait for it—Florida 2000.
"What I fear is what happened to us in Florida when many black and Latino voters were denied the right to vote because of mix-ups," said California Democratic Party Chairman Art Torres. [?]
"This election may very well be invalidated" because people do not have access to voting booths, Torres said. [?]
The comments by Torres and DNC Chairman Terry McAuliffe came after the California branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People said earlier in the day it was preparing a lawsuit over similar issues.
Alice Huffman, president of the California State Conference of the NAACP, said she wanted the election delayed until November to give counties more time to prepare and voters more time to educate themselves.
Of course, California is slightly different than Florida. For instance, the entire state is run by Democrats.
