The unforgiving minute: Silly Florida Republicans

They've sunk a long way from their election-wrecking glory days of the twelve famous words in 1999.

In 2012, beginning with a list of registered voters containing 10 million names, Florida's voter fraud “crackdown” went from 180,000 "suspects," to 2700, to . . . one Canadian guy.
Josef Sever, 52, won’t be voting in Florida this November, though. He pleaded guilty on Aug. 30 in federal court in Miami to multiple felony charges of falsely attesting to be a U.S. citizen and illegally voting. Three days after the Nov. 6 election, when Americans will choose between giving Barack Obama a second term or sending Republican challenger Mitt Romney to the White House, Mr. Sever will be sentenced.

He faces up to five years in prison before his long-running scam passing as a U.S. citizen ends with deportation back to Canada.
Silly Florida Republicans -- he's not even Hispanic. Or black. Or elderly. Or a woman. Or poor. And apparently he's quite the enthusiast of our Second Amendment, at least as it's currently interpreted.

How will getting this guy off your state's voter rolls help elect Romney?
No one, save Mr. Sever, knows how he voted. But he did admit as part of the facts agreed in his guilty plea that he voted in presidential elections in both 2004 and 2008. He had registered to vote with “no party affiliation,” according to court documents.

Minute's up.
