Voting mess created by Republican foxes

Editor:
So Secretary of State Ken Detzner and state Sen. Jack Latvala are going around Florida trying to figure out what caused the voting mess. Isn’t that like sending the fox to find out why the chickens are missing from the chicken coup?

Aren’t they both Republicans and weren’t they both serving when the Republican Legislature decided to stifle voting in Florida and discourage minorities from voting and thereby help the Republican Party? I don’t recall any protest from either one of them when these draconian laws were passed. Once again Florida became the laughing stock of the nation with our long lines and failure to report vote counts timely. Neither one of these gentlemen will be successful because they helped create the problem to start with.

Latvala’s statement that Pinellas election chief’s strategy of promoting absentee voting was unnatural and would result in fraud, shows where his head is. There is little or no voter fraud in Florida and Jack should know better. I support election chief Deborah Clark’s strategy of making it easy for citizens of Florida to exercise their right to vote, instead of making it more difficult to vote, which this pair and their fellow Republicans are guilty of doing in the last election. If Detzner had been doing his job, instead of the bidding of Gov. Rick Scott for the past 10 months before the election, there would not have been a mess.
