  • Ex-felons should get right to vote [Florida]

    TBO.com ^ | 04/28/2016 | Joe Brown
    Last week, Gov. Terry McAuliffe of Virginia used his executive power to restore voting rights to more than 200,000 felons, circumventing the Republican-run Legislature and overturning a Civil War-era provision in the state's constitution aimed, he said, at disenfranchising black Americans. And why would he do something so radical? "People have served their time and done their probation," said McAuliffe. "I want you back in society. I want you feeling good about yourself. I want you voting, getting a job, paying taxes." And who would be against that? Well, Republicans in Virginia for starters. They accused McAuliffe, a Democrat, of...

Ron DeSantis (R-FL), a conservative running for the GOP nomination to replace Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) in the U.S. Senate in November, called out his own party’s leadership for its failure to hold the IRS accountable, years after the agency refused to comply with congressional investigations into its targeting of conservative groups. DeSantis is part of a small group of conservatives in the House pushing to impeach IRS commissioner John Koskinen. He tells Breitbart News that House Speaker...

There's not much recourse for those burned tourists except to fork over the cash. But now a developer at war with the towing operation is echoing that refrain. Beach Towing, the developer argues in a 14-page letter sent to Miami Beach City Hall, has been illegally operating for decades under the wrong permit and should be shut down.

    A black doctor who was fired for supposedly inflammatory sermons unrelated to his medical work filed a lawsuit against the state of Georgia on Wednesday, claiming religious discrimination. This is particularly ironic, considering the governor of that state recently vetoed a religious liberty bill.Dr. Eric Walsh previously served on President Obama's Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS, was a board member of the Latino Health Collaborative, and started California's first city-run dental clinic for low-income families dealing with AIDS. Nevertheless, Walsh was fired only one week after being hired by Georgia's Department of Public Health. Right before Walsh was terminated, the...

    In a 5-2 ruling, the Florida Supreme Court on Friday issued a temporary block on enforcing the state’s 24-hour waiting period requirement for abortions. Florida is one of 27 states that require women seeking abortions to wait at least a day between seeing a doctor about an abortion and having it performed. Studies have shown that such laws are effective in changing the minds of women who do not enter an abortion facility already certain of their decision. A spokeswoman for Republican Governor Rick Scott, who signed the law, said they are reviewing the ruling, which was not on the...

    WASHINGTON -- The National Enquirer has published what it says is conclusive evidence that Ted Cruz’s father, Rafael B. Cruz, is the man photographed next to JFK assassin Lee Harvey Oswald distributing pro-Castro leaflets in 1963 in New Orleans. The Cruz presidential campaign fired back unequivocally. “This is another garbage story in a tabloid full of garbage,” communications director Alice Stewart told McClatchy. “The story is false; that is not Rafael in the picture.” The explosive suggestion that Cruz’s father would have had any affiliation with Oswald is not corroborated in any other way. Cuban-born Rafael Cruz is now a...

It’s because we have criminal justice policies, including unfair sentencing laws, that need to be reformed.” He added “simply locking people up doesn’t make communities safer” because “It doesn’t deal with the conditions that lead people to criminal activity in the first place, or to return to prison later.”

Trump already has the support of two of his vanquished foes: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson. "Frankly, Marco I'd love to have involved," Trump said Thursday on Fox News Channel's "Hannity." "This party has to unite," Trump said. "Then you're going to have the House and Senate." Rubio dropped out of the race after losing his home state of Florida, but has yet to endorse anyone. Trump also responded to...

But he warned them: no “monkey-business.” “We’ve got to be transparent,” Scott told a packed room of RNC officials Thursday at their spring meeting in Hollywood, Fla., implicitly telling them not to cut back-room deals that would undercut the frontrunner or, in Trump’s terms, “rig” the process. “We can’t take a chance that we’re accused of any monkey-business. Tricks. Stunts. Anything,” Scott said in his brief remarks during which he received polite applause.

Her district is now firmly Republican. Graham cited the new district in a video announcement, blaming politicians, lobbyists and courts for making it more partisan.

Florida is lagging behind many states which have updated these laws to reflect the fact that most women now work outside of the home and that children need both parents to thrive, regardless of whether their parents are living together or apart. Sadly, Florida Governor Rick Scott (R) capitulated to intense lobbying by liberal special interest groups and vetoed the bill. The bill had immense support, passing both houses of the Florida legislature by super-majority margins. The governorÂ’s office...

The number of sales and prices in posh Miami Beach — home to many of the city's most expensive and highest-profile properties — fell during the first quarter, according to a new report. Meanwhile, inventory soared by roughly a third compared with the prior-year quarter. The report, released Thursday by Douglas Elliman and Miller Samuel Real Estate Appraisers & Consultants, found the average sale price in Miami Beach and the nearby Barrier Islands fell 7.5 percent year over year to $905,252.

Appearing on Fox News Sunday in a segment titled “Can the Trump campaign move past distractions,” Lewandowski was asked about a prosecutor’s decision last week to not bring the Trump aide to court on a battery charge stemming from a run-in with a reporter in the state.

    Even on days when the temperature is above zero, Illinois struggles to keep people here. They're leaving, in droves, for states with sunnier economic opportunities. New census data and other figures reveal the cold hard truth: More people are moving away than coming, tipping Illinois last year into the dreadful category of states with declining populations. From July 2013 to July 2014, Illinois shrank by about 10,000 residents in all, joining other states in decline such as West Virginia, Connecticut and Alaska. When demographer William Frey of the Brookings Institution analyzed the annual Census Bureau estimates, two facts jumped out...

    Florida Gov. Rick Scott has vetoed a controversial alimony reform bill, saying in his veto letter the legislation had the potential to put the “wants of a parent before the child’s best interest.” [snip] In his veto letter, Scott commended the bill’s sponsors — Sens. Tom Lee and Kelli Stargel, and Reps. Colleen Burton and Ritch Workman — for their efforts to reform the state’s divorce and alimony laws. However, Scott expressed concerns that the legislation would have an adverse effect on children.

    Tim Tebow is a natural for politics. There is an open House appropriator seat coming available in Florida after Rep. Ander Crenshaw announced his upcoming retirement, and Tebow just so happens to live in the district. It’s a perfect fit, especially considering Tebow recently admitted a career in politics would be “intriguing” in an interview with Fox News.

    The Republican National Committee is expected to debate a proposal next week that would dramatically shift the balance of power at this summer’s convention — and impose a new rulebook for selecting the party's nominee. The proposal, which will top the agenda during a meeting of the Rules panel at the RNC’s annual spring meeting in Hollywood Beach, Fla., would fundamentally alter how the convention is conducted, further empowering the delegates to determine the course of the proceedings. It amounts to not just a changing of the rules but of the rulebook itself, with far-reaching implications, potentially impacting whether party...

    Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) said she wants to get Donald Trump a pacifier, and expressed concern about delegates being "harassed" by pro-Bernie forces. Wasserman Schultz noted on CNN this morning that "while certainly it's understandable that as you get closer to a significant primary contest that it's going to get a little bit more edgy, so to speak...my guidance -- my caution, to not only the candidates but their supporters, is to really make sure that we continue to have the robust and substantive discussion on that debate stage that I'm so proud of both of...

    The gossip site TMZ is reporting that authorities in Florida decided not to prosecute Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski because of a video provided to them by the Republican presidential front-runner’s campaign. The report cites anonymous sources who say the unreleased video shows then-Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields being told by a Secret Service agent she was standing in an off-limits area. The scene takes place before the alleged battery occurred. TMZ also says that prosecutors were swayed by an affidavit from Secret Service agent Barton Brown, who headed up former Attorney General Eric Holder’s security detail. The affidavit reportedly says...

    Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, was shredded by liberal media for having placed a hand on a female reporter who then claimed he assaulted her. Michelle Fields loudly proclaimed she had almost been thrown to the ground by Lewandowski – claims that were later proven to be false. Ted Cruz and John Kasich were all too happy to join the liberal media bandwagon and denounced both Lewandowski AND Donald Trump for the alleged incident and claimed they would have fired Mr. Lewandowski....

    Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.), a GOP Senate hopeful, has said he's not supporting Mitch McConnell (Ky.) as the leader of Senate Republicans. “I have declined to endorse McConnell for reelection, and let’s be honest — if he lets a liberal justice onto the Supreme Court, he’s not going to be the majority leader. We know that, that’s not going to fly,” DeSantis told attendees at an April 10 forum sponsored by the Republican Liberty Caucus of Central East Florida, according to footage obtained by The Hill.
