Florida Ignores Feds, Will Continue Purging Voter Rolls of Ineligible Voters

There was a recent report that as many as 53,000 dead people are still on Florida's voter rolls, and probably many more who aren't eligible.  Florida announced they were purging those rolls of ineligible votes and the Federal government warned them to stop.  Florida isn't listening to Eric Holder and his gang of election thieves:
Florida will defy a federal warning to stop purging people the state suspects aren't U.S. citizens from voter registration rolls.

Despite a Justice Department letter, objections from county elections officials and evidence that a disproportionate number are voters of color, Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner's office planned to continue scrubbing the election rolls, a spokesman said Friday. Gov. Rick Scott (R) ordered the search for potentially ineligible voters.

“We have an obligation to make sure the voter rolls are accurate and we are going to continue forward and do everything that we can legally do to make sure that ineligible voters cannot vote,” said Chris Cate, a spokesman for Detzner. “We are firmly committed to doing the right thing and preventing ineligible voters from being able to cast a ballot. We are not going to give up our efforts to make sure the voter rolls are accurate."
You notice the line that says "disproportionate number are voters of color"? Apparently if we suspect that a voter was a "person of color" we're supposed to leave them on the rolls even if they're dead or otherwise ineligible.

Baloney. Voter rolls in every state need to be purged, and voter ID needs to be the law of the land. If you can't cash a check at 7/11 without picture ID you shouldn't be able to cast a vote.

It'd be funny to see US v Arizona go against Holder just as he's filing US v Florida.
