Emmett “Bucky” Mitchell IV*, former senior attorney for the Florida Division of Elections, now in private practice in Tallahassee and serving as general counsel for the Florida GOP, testified in April in a federal voting rights lawsuit that he wrote the first draft of 1355. The Palm Beach Post uncovered the deposition while researching the origins of the law.Emmett “Bucky” Mitchell IV - This sounds like the swarmy, chubby, cigar smoking, mint julip sipping lawyer's name in a John Grisham novel!
Dierdre Macnab, president of the Florida League of Women Voters, reacted angrily when learning from The Post of Mitchell’s involvement in writing 1355, which took effect in 2011.
“I’d be deeply concerned to think that members of a political party who are not elected officials, nor staff to legislators, are drawing up voter-suppression laws in back rooms,” Macnab said. “It should be deeply troubling to the public.”
It is now time for Congress (if we can EVER get a bullet proof majority again) to clean up the election disruption being perpetrated nationally by the GOP.
We need prison sentences for the present laws that are being broken!
The world, we are told, looks to the USA as the MODEL OF DEMOCRACY.
Screwing with our votes is not democratic.
