      hundred people, maybe.

      That's the part I never understood about all the time, energy and resources Rick Scott put in to purging "noncitzens" from the voter rolls. The numbers just didn't and never would make a dent in the number of people that would be purged on that basis. It was nothing compared to the thousands of "felons" Jeb Bush had purged based on faulty data before the 2000 election that put his brother in White House. That made a dent in an election that was decided by 538 votes.
