    And so it begins: voter manipulation. Armed Forces Persnel not allowed to vote

    It's been talked about, predicted and debated. There has been much speculation, but now it's real.

    Those who have served their country in uniform, some of whom who have been to combat are not going to be able to vote in Florida. And they learn about it too late to change anything by next Tuesday.

    Warm up the lawyers, he we go:



    TAMPA BAY, Florida - Local service members who have spent years serving the country are discovering this fall that they aren't allowed to vote in the presidential election.
    Valrico resident and Navy Captain Peter Kehrig, who has been abroad for five years tells 10 News he feels cheated by a system that removed him from the rolls.
    Florida State Law requires county supervisor of elections offices to perform regular "maintenance" on its voter rolls to eliminate voters who have been convicted of felonies, moved out of the county, or may have died.
    Voters who miss two consecutive general elections (2010 and 2008, for instance) are mailed a letter to their residence warning them they will be removed from the rolls. But since the post office only forwards mail for six months, Kehrig never got it.

    The dems pulled the same crap 4 years ago. It was particularly bad in Ohio.

    Such a huge crock. I hope this time they will allow the military justice system to get involved.

    And 12 years ago also. (Remember the lengthy recount in Florida in 2000? The Democrats attempted to suppress votes from military personnel then also, in the full knowledge that the majority of these votes would go to the more conservative candidate.)
