Amid Attorney General Eric Holder's (selective) campaign against "voter suppression," this video reveals how easy it is to cast a ballot on Election Day -- no questions asked.
Feel better now?
In today's edition, Sunshine State News
knocks down claims of voter suppression in Florida.
Former Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum on Monday endorsed Craig Miller's bid for the 6th Congressional District.
McCollum, a former Republican congressman from Central Florida, said in a statement:
"While we have several good conservative candidates that have come forward to run in the new coastal congressional district, only Craig Miller has the depth of experiences to best address the most pressing issues of the day.
While some of Florida's provincial media obsess over seating rules at the Republican Convention in Tampa, the Democrats are reversing course and kowtowing to big-money interests in Charlotte.
After initially barring corporations and lobbyists from contributing money to this summer's DNC convention, organizers have found ways to skirt the rules and give those groups a presence.
The Obama administration has quietly released $1.5 billion in foreign aid to the new Egyptian government dominated by the Islamist supremacist Muslim Brotherhood.
Oh, you hadn't heard? Well, that's understandable.
"It is not easy to find the announcement," wrote Andrew McCarthy in National Review on Friday. "With the legacy media having joined the Obama re-election campaign, we must turn for such news to outlets like the Kuwait News Agency.
The departure of Lee County Commissioner Tammy Hall from the 19th Congressional District race has helped state Rep. Gary Aubuchon, Hall's former campaign strategist says.
"Most of her supporters went over to Gary," Anthony Pedicini told Sunshine State News on Saturday. "He definitely has taken the inside track."
The contest to succeed Rep. Connie Mack, R-Naples, remains crowded and contentious, however. Other leading candidates are state Rep. Paige Kreegel, R-Punta Gorda, Trey Radel and Chauncey Goss.
It's rare that a high-profile political candidate will pick a fight with one of Florida's larger newspapers, but Connie Mack campaign manager Jeff Cohen threw caution to the wind in blasting the Tampa Bay (nee St. Petersburg) Times.
Cohen issued a statement Thursday saying:
“Earlier today a blog post by the Tampa Bay Times carried the headline, 'Mack Campaign: Why We Will Squash LeMieux Like a Bug.'
For the second time in 30 days, President Barack Obama will be in South Florida to raise campaign cash and deliver a policy talk.
Like his March 10 visit to Miami, Obama will appear at a string of fundraisers along the Gold Coast. And as before, he's tacking on a late-developing "official speech" to ensure that the junket's tab is picked up by the taxpayers.
Obama reportedly will deliver a speech at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton. The White House has released no details on the format of the event, but it's slated to focus on the economy.
Urging Rick Scott not to "follow in the president's footsteps," Americans for Prosperity today called on the governor to veto a state energy bill.
Criticizing House Bill 7117, the Florida chapter of AFP wrote: “This misguided political ideology of picking winners and losers in the marketplace will undoubtedly continue its pattern of wasting taxpayer money by bankrolling politically-favored energy companies. It leads to crony capitalism and crony politics.
In the run-up to the U.S. Supreme Court hearing on Arizona's immigration law, two Florida Democrats are weighing in.
Reps. Ted Deutch, D-Boca Raton, and Frederica Wilson, D-Miami, signed an amicus brief with 65 other members of Congress -- all Democrats -- to support the Justice Department's opposition to the law.
They joined 11 state attorneys general -- also all Democrats -- in contending that Arizona's SB 1070 will "have the primary effect of redirecting undocumented immigrants to other states."
St. Johns County School Board Chairwoman Bev Slough jumped into the Republican primary for the 6th Congressional District on Wednesday,
"Congress is in desperate need of true conservatives and common-sense leadership," Slough said.
"Over the past decade, as a school board member, I’ve helped balance a nearly half-billion-dollar budget, manage 3,600 employees and reduce spending, all while maintaining Florida’s top-rated school district."
