  • How the GOP Gamed the System in Florida

    Lantigua takes a look at the disfranchisement of minority voters in Florida in the 2000 presidential election. . He writes, " disfranchisement 2000-style did not depend on intimidation...Instead Florida state election officials and hired data crunchers used computers to target thousands of voters, many of whom were then purged from the voter rolls without reason." State officials deny racist intent in their creation of laws that remove a felon's right to vote; Florida's prison population is 54 percent black while its state population is only 15 percent.. State officials also cannot explain why thousands of other Floridians who have no criminal record, also had their right to vote taken away. Lantigua investigates how legislation and election underfunding may have cost 200,000 Floridians their votes.
