The Florida Republican Party Tried To Suppress The Vote During The Presidential Election!
Is This The American Way?

Did the Florida Republican Party try to suppress the vote during the presidential election?
Well according to Jim Greer, the former chairman of the Florida Republican party...the answer is a resounding yes! He's been saying for months, that the Florida party helped put together a new law, to decrease voter turnout and spread lies about voter fraud, in an effort to suppress the vote. Greer, said, that state Republicans supported HB 1355, a law that made it more difficult to vote early, as a means of suppressing the vote of those, who vote for the Democrats.
Now, some of you may be saying, he's just trying to get back at them. But, now other former Republicans and consultants, are supporting Greer's claims.
Florida State Republicans
The Florida state Republicans say that, none of this ever happened, that, it's all made up, to make them look bad. (and they do look bad because they are bad). They say that Greer, was never at any of the alleged meetings, and that neither the discussions or the conversations he claimed, ever took place. They say that, the GOP wouldn't try to suppress voter turnout, because that's illegal. (No shit! then why try to do it?) Well, what you think about all of this?
Believing Mr Greer
We know, by the extra long voter lines, and the ungodly long time, many voters had to wait in line before they could vote, that something funny, was going on and going wrong.
We, know that, Republican Governors, in many states, passed or tried to pass, restrictive voter id laws, to make it harder for people to vote. Some of them, wouldn't allow early voting, especially Sunday voting, a day that many black church goers traditionally chose to vote.
So I believe Mr Greer, what about you?
