#96 of My Stupid State series

Breaking:  Rick Scott is a freaking ass.

The city of Gainesville dealt with huge lines last year (as did most Democratically-leaning cities, with 6-hour waits).  The city asked to use the University of Florida student union for early voting.

Rick Scott's corrupt Sec. of State, Ken Detzner, said NO.

Lori Edwards, Polk County Supervisor of Elections called it what it was: "Strategic. They're worried about young people voting."

Deirdre Macnab, president of the League of Women Voters, called it "jaw dropping to consider that we wouldn't open up the student union, the student library and other buildings on campus to make it easier for our leaders of tomorrow to start their civic duty of voting."

Are you ticked off? Take some action:

  • Progress Florida organized a phone campaign to complain and is gathering responses: Hook it up.  
  • Let Rick know on his facebook page that all the voter suppression and scheming isn't going to make one iota of difference.
  • And, best of all, make this backfire on the bastard.  Join Crist's campaign.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
