Florida Sues DHS Over Access to Database Needed for Voter Purge

On today’s Neal Cavuto, Florida Governor Rick Scott told the host he was going to sue the Department of Homeland Security:


Gov. Rick Scott’s top elections official sued the U.S. Department of Homeland Security on Monday, accusing the agency of unlawful “recalcitrance” for refusing Florida access to a database that could help the state spot and remove noncitizens from the voter rolls.

“We have a right to this database,” Scott said Monday on FOX News’ Your World Cavuto show. “It’s supposed to be used for voting registration. I look forward to them giving us the database but, again, we don’t have a choice but to sue them this afternoon.”

DHS has refused to comment or explain why it won’t give Florida access to the database.

Remember, the federal government is a creation of the states, not the other way around. They need to open the database to the state.
