So hasty were Florida lawmakers, they managed to outlaw all computers in the Sunshine State.

The absurd instance of mindless over reach by government appeared in a Florida Senate bill prohibiting electronic gambling devices and internet cafes.

The legislation was signed into law by Florida’s former Tea Party favorite, Rick Scott. He signed the bill behind closed doors and said the ban is the “right thing to do for our state.”

Consuelo Zapata, the owner of Incredible Investments, LLC, a business in Miami-Dade that provides online services for migrant workers who is suing the state in response to the legislation, said the law is so recklessly worded that it outlaws all computers in the state, not simply those at internet cafes.

Scott and the Florida Senate passed the law in response to seniors and other state residents using “electronic gambling devices,” including computers.

The bill’s wording can be used to categorize any number of devices as illegal gambling machines, according to the Miami law firm of Kluger, Kaplan, Silverman, Katzen & Levine, the Huffington Post reported on Monday.
