The Tampa Bay Times reports that during a 20-day period almost 2,000 Floridians voluntarily un-registered themselves to vote. This number is more than 100 percent higher than the number of exits normally seen. One can’t say for sure that these folks are bowing out because of the work of President Trump’s voter fraud commission. But the timing is interesting, isn’t it?
One can’t even conclude that these civic dropouts should not have been on voter rolls in the first place. But one does not have to have a suspicious mind to be suspicious. Florida is mostly cooperating with the fraud commission, in the face of whining from Democrats and the mainstream media (pardon the redundancy) about “voter suppression,” “racial prejudice,” “xenophobia,” yada yada. So perhaps more will duck and run as time goes on.
An amusing wrinkle to this story in the relentlessly leftist Times is that the subhead cries, “Some blame Trump’s election commission” for the un-registrations.
Blame? Blame? Normally blame is ascribed to those causing something bad to happen. If Floridians who don’t think they are qualified to vote here, or don’t wish to vote here, are volunteering to take themselves off the voter rolls, how is that bad? How is this worthy of blame?
That’s just the way they think at the Times. Pay it no mind.
