Big-Name Felon Gets New Voter Card in Palm Beach County
It wasn't sloppy work in her shop, oh, no. As always with the accident-prone Palm Beach County supervisor of elections, sending a new voter card to a high-profile felon was someone else's fault.
In a conversation with Jack Furnari of BIZPAC Review, Susan Bucher, vocal critic of the state's voter-list purge to say the least, couldn't explain why her office sent Kevin McCarty a new voter card. McCarty is at the center of one of the most widely publicized public corruption cases in Palm Beach County history. His is a name that rarely goes unrecognized these days. And yet it rang not a single bell in the Palm Beach County elections office.
When asked how such a well-known felon could be sent a new voter card, Bucher told BIZPAC: “I didn't even know his first name was Lawrence. I don't look up felons in the newspaper. This is another instance of bad voter data by the state."
Got it, Susan. Thanks.
Democrat Bucher's office, by the way, was among the first to call off the SOE review of eligible voters.
