A 91-year-old World War II veteran, who faces losing the right to vote after state officials flagged thousands of people who may be ineligible, is now getting backup from two South Florida congressmen.
Bill Internicola, Congressmen Ted Deutch (D-Boca Raton) and Alcee Hastings (D-Miramar) announced Tuesday they will send a letter to Gov. Rick Scott protesting the voting purge.
“We have received information from the state of Florida that you are not a United States citizen yet you are registered to vote,” Deutch read from the letter. “You have 30 days to act on this notice or be removed from our voter rolls.”
