Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, October 14, 2016

Approximately 311,000 Floridians cast absentee ballots by Friday morning in the nation's biggest battleground state, and the numbers are increasingly moving in favor of Democrats and their White House nominee, Hillary Clinton. At the same time, the Florida Democratic Party is blowing away the Republican Party of Florida in submitting new voter-registration forms. Democrats have submitted 503,000 and Republicans fewer than 60,000 of the 2 million registration forms collected this year by about 700 third-party groups, according to the 2016 data posted online by the state Division of Elections.

No wonder Rick Scott didn't want to extend the deadline for registering to vote in this coming election.

Clearly this is George Soros secret plan to important 8 million immigrants and register them to vote at work, I mean, what else could explain this?

Yep voter fraud is on the rise. None of these late registered voters will be verified as real people that live in the state.

While Trump has been throwing rallies in Florida, Hillary and Democratic groups have been registering voters. I just got another call from one of her campaign volunteers today who wanted to make sure I was voting.

Corky, Doc, Danni, Rcade, are y'all on board with the Rubio campaign...or are you voting for former rwinger (who inflated his resume, and cannot speak Spanish) Patrick Murphy?

Send Patrick Murphy to Senate; send shirker Marco Rubio home | Editorial

The Sun Sentinel Editorial Board endorses Murphy because we mostly approve of the policy positions espoused by him and other moderate Democrats. Those include a commitment to repair, rather than kill, Obamacare; respect for the hard-won rights of women, the LGBT community and minorities; a higher minimum wage; tax policies that benefit the middle class, rather than the rich; a pragmatic approach to relations with Cuba; deep concern about climate change; protecting Medicare and Social Security from privatization; and ensuring that the Second Amendment is not corrupted into a right for terrorists to buy assault weapons.

On all of those issues, Murphy is strong and Rubio is weak.

It is not that hard for non U.S. Citizens to obtain a FL REAL ID, and then register by mail to vote.

www.flhsmv.gov
links to:
www.gathergoget.com
(which has the instructions on what documents are needed)

REAL ID - Florida law requires identification, proof of date of birth, proof of residential address, and proof of social security number (note: it does NOT say proof of U.S. Citizenship).

So, if you are not a U.S. Citizen, If you want a REAL ID (so you can legally register to vote), just do the following:

1. Primary Identification (show)
Gather one original or certified copy of the following documents:
- Proof of nonimmigrant classification provided by United States Department of Homeland Security (Form I-94)...I-94s must be accompanied by a valid Passport with a date of entry stamp.
- If you think an I-94 is hard to get... I've got a bridge to sell you!

2. Proof of Social Security Number (show)
Gather one original of the following documents that show your complete name and social security number:
*If you do not have a social security number, you must bring a letter from the Social Security Administration indicating that you were never issued one. In addition, you will need to present at least one proof of ID from the following list:
...
Government issued out-of-country passport... (well golly gee!)
...

3. Proofs of Residential Address (show)
Gather TWO different documents from the following list showing your residential address: (internet printouts or faxes of these documents are acceptable)
- You should see this list! (3 of the things on the list would be EASY for a non U.S. Citizen to have and show)

The whole system is ripe for voter registration fraud!

Does Murphy go around boasting how he's completely self-made,

In campaign ads, Rep Patrick Murphy touts his experience as an "independent" small business owner. Factually, it turns out that Patrick Murphy merely asked his dad for "a small loan" and then registered a business to be the middle man for some of his dad's construction projects.

I present the facts, you decide, but it seems like Patrick Murphy (R/D) is a meek Trump. :)

Having a political sponsor is a little different than asking one's rich daddy for some cash, setting up a business, then playing middleman on some construction deals. Not exactly what most voters would consider "an independent small business owner."

Plus, Rubio has never claimed to be self-funding his political campaign.

-a political sponsor

Doesn't pay your personal bills. Your outrage about Murphy and your willingness to overlook Rubio's Sugar Daddy is hilarious.

"A detailed review of their relationship shows that Mr. Braman, 82, has left few corners of Mr. Rubio's world untouched. He hired Mr. Rubio, then a Senate candidate, as a lawyer; employed his wife to advise the Braman family's philanthropic foundation; helped cover the cost of Mr. Rubio's salary as an instructor at a Miami college; and gave Mr. Rubio access to his private plane.

The money has flowed both ways. Mr. Rubio has steered taxpayer funds to Mr. Braman's favored causes, successfully pushing for an $80 million state grant to finance a genomics center at a private university and securing $5 million for cancer research at a Miami institute for which Mr. Braman is a major donor.

Even in an era dominated by super-wealthy donors, Mr. Braman stands out, given how integral he has been not only to Mr. Rubio's political aspirations but also to his personal finances.

Mr. Braman and aides to Mr. Rubio have declined to say how much personal financial assistance he has provided to Mr. Rubio and his wife, directly or indirectly, but it appears to total in the hundreds of thousands of dollars."

Rubio should ask Mr. Brahman to set him up with a car dealership or two, so Marco can claim to be "an independent small business owner," and therefore better compete with Patrick Murphy's foray into entrepreneurship (lol).

This why campaigns have ground games. Voter registration, voter identification and voter turnout efforts are key to winning elections. Hillary has spent a lot of money on her ground game, while Drumpf has spent next to nothing, trusting the GOP to do it for him. From all reports, the GOP is getting blown away by Hillary's and the Dem ground games. This is another example of how Hillary and the Dems are killing it.

Not hardly. Rubio is a bought and paid for punk. He gets up every morning and tries to figure out which way the wind is blowing because that will tell him what he believes that day. A reformed Republican is a politician I can actually believe in. Your party has put the welfare of the American people on hold ever since Barrack Obama was elected President, don't even try to pretend that they ever put country before party, they don't. Murphy did, he couldn't stomach your party's hateful and destructive obstructionism. filibuster the "bring the jobs home bill"?????? Really??? And you can still support these creeps????

Patrick Murphy skewered by Slate:

The Democrats meanwhile went out of their way to recruit one of the worst possible candidates available in any state, Congressman Patrick Murphy a two-term congressman with a very wealthy and generous Republican father. The Democrats had persuaded Murphy to switch his R to a D in 2012 and he unsurprisingly went on to compile one of the most conservative records in the House Democratic caucus. He was even one of the chief Benghazi witch hunters enthusiastically helping Republicans smear Hillary Clinton.

Patrick Murphy was an active member of the Benghazi witch hunt and changed his party registration when his office discovered his district would be remapped (re-gerrymandered).

Patrick Murphy, political opportunist; not a profile in courage.

Can one of the active Florida Liberals pass a memo to Rep. Murphy to order Rosetta Stone to prepare for the Univision debate in late October against Rubio?

Bilingual Rubio, who has tens of national-level debates under his belt, is going to kick Murphy's ass in the upcoming debates. Murphy has only participated in one debate during his short congressional career.

"He's Obama's point man on race."

Yeah, Little Marco was so effective debating Trump, with idiotic remarks about the size of his hands. Rubio is an empty suit.

"Patrick Murphy was an active member of the Benghazi witch hunt and changed his party registration when his office discovered his district would be remapped (re-gerrymandered)....by the Republican Party.

FTFY

Quite honestly, there are probably many Republicans who are only Republican because the gerrymandered districts make it impossible for Democrats to win and you acknowledge that yet still support the very same Republicans who gerrymandered those districts. What does that say about you?

#39 | Posted by danni at 2016-10-15 11:42 AM | Reply

Republicans didn't regerrymander those districts, it was the FL supreme court which called for numerous political maps to be reconfigured.

As a Conservative who votes for Sen. Bill Nelson, I find it fascinating that Democratic-leaning voters can't admit that the DNC is running a horrible candidate in Rep. Patrick Murphy (R/D).

Murphy deserves to lose this race, and judging by the last 22 polls, he will lose.

We aren't the greatest Democracy in the World. Gerrymandering and the 2000 & 2004 elections proves that. But, even with our obstructions, there is a limit to how far cheating can get away with here. Computerized cheating is carefully constructed to change the result while changing the minimal number of actual votes.

This shift may very well give Florida to the Wussies, but you still have Rick Scott, a real deplorable.
