Joe Scarborough: What Voting Problems in Florida?

Joe Scarborough Award For Bald-Faced Lies And Extreme Hubris In Punditry

MEDIA MATTERS catches the moment where Joe Scarborough makes light of what’s been going on in Florida, which I wrote about early this morning.

“It’s absolutely a story,” David Gregory added.

And, yes, so is Benghazi, which I’ve been covering more than any other liberal in new-media.

In response to these reports, Brzezinski said “We’ve been talking about the impact of early voting in this race. There are some issues with early voting in Florida over the weekend when the Miami-Dade elections department closed its doors with hundreds of people still lined up outside. The center was shut down for an hour until officials were given permission to extend in-person absentee voting. Democrats have now filed a federal lawsuit to force the state’s Republican-controlled government to extend early voting hours in South Florida.”

Scarborough dismissed the story as an attempt to say: “Republicans bad. Rick Scott bad. Voting suppression.”

    “The lawsuit states that the three counties have “inadequate polling facilities” and have failed to meet the needs of voters. Some voters faced “prohibitively long” lines and did not finish voting until early Sunday morning.”

    In Florida, a registered voter need only make a checkmark on a form letter sent every year in June or July by each county supervisor of elections to receive an absentee ballot on or about October 1st at their home mailing address without even providing any reason to justify the absentee ballot.

    Anyone who stands in a line to vote in Florida does not have the IQ to qualify to have their vote counted anyway.
