Recent examinations of Florida's voter rolls has several irregularities, including:


53,000 dead people
2,600 immigrants who entered the country legally, but are not U.S. citizens

You post a Fox News story from:

"POLITICS Published May 17, 2012 Last Update December 13, 2016
53K Dead People on Florida's Voter Rolls
By | Fox News

There are currently more than 11 million active registered voters in the state, but a few thousand votes could make the difference in what is expected to be a tight race between President Barack Obama and GOP presumptive nominee Mitt Romney. The 2000 election between George W. Bush and Al Gore was decided by just 537 votes in the Sunshine State."

The updated story has no evidence the story is updated at all. This Associated Press article is describing what happened 6 1/2 years ago that Fox News picked up not anything that happened in 2018 so why post it here? Democtates picked up 40 seats. The discussion is voter fraud in the midterm this year, which didn't happen. If this was true what you posted that it happened this year it would be headline news, not Fox News reposting it later trying to fool people by stared it was updated in 2016. Typical Fox News con job.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced Friday that the state has discovered 95,000 non-citizens on the voter rolls going back to 1996, 58,000 of whom have voted in at least one Texas election -- an announcement likely to raise fresh concerns about the prospect of voter fraud.

So that's Zorro's lecture for the morning. Most people read it in yesterdays' news.

"Those individuals had been noted by the Texas Department of Public Safety as having “provided valid documents indicating the person is not a citizen of the United States at the time the person obtained a Driver License or Personal Identification Card.” They may have used a work visa or a green card in that process.

According to the Tribune, an unknown number of these individuals are actually, or are currently, non-U.S. citizens. And there is no telling when or if that information will be made available from the Texas secretary of state’s office.

Additionally, in the notice, the Texas secretary of state’s office said that the individuals identified on the list “will need to be treated as WEAK matches.” County authorities can either choose to investigate voters on the list, or take no action if the voter registrar believes there is no reason to think the voter is ineligible.

The Texas Tribune noted that it is possible that over the two decades cited by the secretary of state, many of those individuals became naturalized citizens."

50,000 legal immigrants in Texas are naturalized every year. Your misleading Fox News quote is typically a half truth and omits facts as is Trump's tweet. These far right wing tactics of many of your news sources are unethical and interesting to read by constantly/predictable being a template for far right wing disinformation and then enabling followers to repeat those many concocted news articles and also appear lacking in intergity. IMO

"Texas tells counties noncitizen voter report may be flawed


"We received a call from the state saying we should put things on hold," said Dallas County Elections Administrator Toni Pippins-Poole. "Some of the data that they received was flawed. Some of the voters had already provided proof of citizenship."

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Officials with the Texas secretary of state's office began calling county election chiefs Tuesday to warn about problems with its recent report questioning the citizenship of tens of thousands of registered voters, the latest example of a state backpedaling after raising alarms about potential widespread election fraud.

Whitley released a new statement Tuesday that didn't provide any revised estimate of voters whose citizenship remains in question. It also doesn't acknowledge any errors with the initial count, after his office Friday had expressed high confidence in the data that was used.

Texas is not the first state to question the citizenship of thousands of registered voters, and often early claims of possible illegal voting on a rampant scale haven't held up.

When Florida began searching for noncitizens in 2012, state officials initially found 180,000 people suspected of being ineligible to vote when comparing databases of registered voters and driver's licenses. Florida officials later assembled a purge list of more than 2,600 names but that, too, was beset by inaccuracies. Eventually, a revised list of 198 names of possible noncitizens was produced through the use of a federal database.

In Colorado, former Republican Secretary of State Scott Gessler launched a search for non-citizen voters with a pool of 3,903 people. Hundreds on his list were U.S. citizens, and Gessler later passed along just 141 names to county clerks."

Typical Republican voter suppression ploy that will eventually backfire as usual.

https://news.yahoo.com/voting-rights...155556920.html

"(Bloomberg) -- Voting-rights advocates asked a federal judge to stop Texas from improperly purging voter rolls after state election officials questioned the citizenship of 95,000 registered voters.

The state’s local elections will be held May 4. Candidate filing for the elections opened Jan. 16 and early voting starts on April 22.

Texas is using “DPS data that goes back nearly a quarter-century and ‘matching’ it against current voter registration data,” Vera said in the complaint. And by keeping the underlying data secret, state election officials can “publicly state whatever they wished without fear of contradiction on any specifics.”

Almost 53,000 Texans became naturalized citizens in 2014, according to LULAC’s complaint, which notes that the number of applications for naturalization have shot up 87 percent nationwide since Trump took office."

Typical Texas move. Probably still the most corrupt state government in America. They keep voting in far right Republican nutjob Ted Cruz. His speaches when campaigning for president were bizarre, to say the least.
