MSNBC: Florida’s First Statewide recount underway

NewFM’s Dwight Bullard was invited on to MSNBC to talk about voter suppression in Florida and how it played out in the midterm elections.

NewFM Political Director Dwight Bullard appeared on the Nov. 12th episode of MSNBC’s The Beat With Ari Melber to discuss voter suppression and efforts to ensure a fair recount process in the midterm elections.

Bullard: [Rick Scott’s] allegations of voter fraud have been false. They were false even before the judge ruled on it. And it really shows a level of pursuing in the part of Rick Scott because we`re talking about voter suppression or tactics around voter disengagement. Governor Scott`s been at the forefront, going back to the laws he signed into place in 2011. So when you hear him now claim voter fraud after time and time again in purging the rolls… the claim of voter fraud in this time and place seems very hypocritical coming from him.
