NAACP PAC, Democrats Oppose Florida Attempt to Remove Non-Citizens From Voter Rolls

Previous attempt halted amid flurry of lawsuits


The NAACP and other groups are calling on Gov. Rick Scott to stop a renewed attempt to purge people who aren't U.S. citizens from the state's voter rolls.

Bill Tucker, chair of the political-action committee of the NAACP's Tallahassee branch, called the renewed voter purge "a fool's errand" during a news conference at the Capitol. He said the purge would "cast another dark shadow on Florida" and "disproportionately affect Florida's most vulnerable groups," namely minorities.
