Nothing like seeing a Republican vow to do their best to make sure all of the voters of her state still have to worry about being thrown off of the voting rolls even if they don't belong there, as GOP AG Pam Bondi promised to do on Megyn Kelly's show on Fox this Tuesday:

AG Pam Bondi Promises Florida Will ‘Keep Fighting’ For Voter Purge:

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly on Tuesday that the state would “keep fighting” for its right to purge noncitizens from the state’s voter rolls, even though the efforts have removed legitimate voters from the rolls.

“I think every American should find it very frustrating and troubling that [the feds] don’t want to work with our state to insure that the proper people vote,” Bondi said.

The Justice Department told Florida last week that their voter list purge is illegal. Florida is supposed to respond by Wednesday.

Bondi went on to blame their latest tactics on asking the federal government for a list from Homeland Security and it not being made available to them, instead of the list they used to purge the voters off of the rolls. I'll be curious to find out if that statement is true, just what information they were asking for and why it was denied and why the state thought that justified their actions in response. It doesn't change the fact that they instead decided to start purging voters from their rolls that they knew full well were probably legal voters and why the Republicans would have an interest in doing so.
