Scott defends voter purge on national media

June 12, 2012, (Written by James Call – The Florida Current).  Governor Rick Scott remained on the offensive Tuesday in his effort to purge noncitizens from Florida’s voter registration rolls.  Scott appeared on six morning news programs, including cable news networks, national radio programs and a Tampa morning television program. “We have almost 100 individuals that are registered to vote that are non-U.S. citizens,” he told Fox viewers. “Over 50 of them have voted in our elections. I have an obligation to enforce the laws of our land. You don’t get to vote in Florida if you are a non-U.S. citizen.”
