Florida: The Latest Victim of Anti-Election Integrity Lawsuits Nationwide
- BY Chase Martin
Last week, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed into law SB 90, a commonsense law that seeks to strike the perfect balance between making it easy to vote, yet hard to cheat.
As expected, before the ink on the law had a chance to dry, the same Democratic-Party aligned law firm that filed lawsuits against election integrity bills in Georgia, Iowa, and Montana filed yet another suit, this time in Florida. Allegations of voter suppression frothed from the mouth of political pundits on television and the professional outrage machine swung into full action.
Despite this mobilization, there is no controversy here worthy of outrage. In passing this law, Florida’s legislature has provided a set of fair and consistent rules that promote free, fair, and transparent elections—a constitutional right for their citizens.
