Florida: Hundreds of eligible citizens in Miami-Dade Co alone told they are ineligible to vote

So how does this play out? Here’s one way – Falsely disenfranchized Floridians appeal to Obama’s Justice Dept. Eric Holder makes noises that “this is an outrage.” Republicans make noises that “this is just political, and besides (shh, Holder has, well, melatonal ties that disqualify his etc., but shh).”
The White House, certain of November victory anyway, decides to back down. No need to ruffle R feathers.
Holder then makes all the right public noises, but does little to actually block this. (My best guess at the explanation: it’s a matter for “the courts,” plus something about the “states.”)
I really really want to be wrong. Let’s watch together, shall we? 115,000 purged eligible voters isn’t small beer.
