  •  I do not know what dynamics changed with the (4+ / 0-)

    UN observers if any.  State and House in Florida are republican ruled and part of the problem so I would think DoJ.   Wanna tell me how the US congress got into the Terry Shavo case?

    •  Schiavo? unconstitutional grandstanding that's how (8+ / 0-)

      Schiavo was a joke, IIRC.

      I think they discovered if the Jeb Bush sent state troopers to bring her to testify, the county cops would have to defend the hospital in which she was.....
      As for the others, IMHO:

      DoJ has jurisdiction over the state of Florida voting through the VRA through the Federal Courts for preclearance.  There was a Florida case which I did not follow. How did it work out? IIRC, they settled.

      UN observers-only in the dark fantasies of the RW does the UN have jurisdiction over the US.

      I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

        Special act of congress passed on Palm Sunday. Initiated in Senate where it passed 3-0, 97 senators being absent...and to president's desk by 1 am the next morning.

        I posted the Wiki explanation and detail on Jeb Bush's almost starting a shooting war between FL types of police.
