While legislation that would essentially do away with DRE touch-screen voting in Florida in favor of optical scan voting, sailed through the House without problem a Senate bill has been amended 14 times with amendments that try to help some legislator’s agenda to make it harder for people to vote. Added to the bill were unheard amendments that would limit the ability of groups to register voters and that would prohibit unions from political activity. Support for the legislation was immediately withdrawn by the Democratic party, League of Women Voters, ACLU, AFL-CIO and many others. So why this change? Is it an act to put in a poison pill to kill the bill or is it a hope that there is enough strength in the bill that it can carry these restrictive, disenfranchising amendments?
