    form of election tampering this year.  Besides Scott's tampering with the rolls, changing automatic restoration to felons, hiring this company to preferentially register voters and tamper with the opposition's franchise, the state has also reduced early voting as much as possible to disenfrranchise tens of thousands.

    In addition, the ballot has been rigged with eleven amendments comprising 4-5 pages of fine print on the ballot.  Several of the amendments are ALEC-written attacks on privacy, objectivity of the State's Supreme Court, implementation of the ACA, and separation of church and state.  This year is an all-out stealth and public brazen attack on the people.  Many will just ignore the amendments and fail to vote; making it all the easier for fewer YES votes to prevail.

    Stricken with high unemployment, minimal attention to these crimes in the media, and the fruits of the creation of the Koch-guided tea party contingent; time is ripe for this takeover given the depressed electorate.

    Voters need to vote NO on every issue, turn out every incumbent on Scott's side of the legislature and re-elect every opposition member they can find.  Even then, a lot of the damage has already been done.

    You'll be reading about turmoil at polling laces in Florida on Election Day.  Voters who want to protect their rights will need to be insistent on making their voices heard.
