Another Hurricane Aimed at Florida

I guess John J. Miller at NRO's The Corner didn't get the same DNC email I did.

"It's bad enough that on Election Day we're going to have to deal with these "provisional ballots" -- i.e., ballots for people who show up to vote but can't prove they're registered casting "provisional ballots" that potentially will be counted later, like absentee ballots. Now the AFL-CIO is in court to argue that the provisional ballots of people who show up at the wrong precinct must be counted. This is a recipe for chaos, which, of course, is exactly what the Left wants to produce. How long before there's a lawsuit claiming that people don't even have to leave their homes on Election Day to have their preferences read into the political process? Anyway, here's a Miami Herald article on the madness." [emphasis mine]

The Miami Herald article says:

With the election less than a month away, the Florida Supreme Court has agreed to hear a lawsuit demanding that all provisional ballots be counted regardless of where they are cast.

And we all know which way that Florida Supreme Court swings, don't we?

"But a lawyer for the state's election supervisors predicted widespread turmoil on Election Day if the court orders counties to count all provisional ballots. Ron Labasky, who represents the Florida State Association of Supervisors of Elections, said nothing would stop special interest groups from telling voters to go out and demand a provisional ballot at any precinct instead of using the touch-screen voting machines used in 15 counties, including Broward and Miami-Dade."

A whirlwind of "provisional ballots" would turn the election into a nightmare that would make Hurricane Frances seem like a light drizzle.

This is one instance where I believe the Feds should step in--as in passing a law stating only U.S. citizens with legal picture ID be permitted to vote. (For non-drivers, the DMV in most states will provide a picture ID for just a few bucks.) I don't care if you manage the corner convenience store and your kid goes to local schools--if you're an illegal and/or a non-citizen you don't vote. Period. End of story.

Well done!
