Letter: Early departure guarantees seat
Tuesday, June 5, 2012
The GOP is manipulating the democratic election process, which was passed to us from our American forefathers. Look no further than Joe Zarelli's maneuver to quit his job as senator so a GOP appointment can be made. An incumbent is assured to receive more votes.
Another example recently was over 180,000 Florida voters purged from voter rolls — most were democratic or minority voters. This action was done by an executive order from a Republican governor.
Republicans backed by the moneyed rich will take over America if we let them.
