Looks like the no-match law requiring the registrations of new voters to match basic ID laws works and doesn't work. It caught Cuban dictator Fidel Castro (is he more like a Weekend at Bernie's dictator?), but it snared Miami Heat rookie Mario Chalmers as well. (Conspirasits take note: Chalmers is a Dem from Alaska).
From today's story:
What do a promising rookie for the Miami Heat, a systems analyst from Bulgaria, the wife of a Republican congressional candidate and Fidel Castro have in common?
They can't just show up Nov. 4 and fill out a regular ballot. Theirs are among 12,000 names statewide flagged under Florida's Voter Verification Law, a ''no match'' screening process embroiled in legal and political controversy.
The ID check spits out voter registrations that don't match driver's license or social security records. It has left voters on a list dominated by blacks, Hispanics and Democrats in a legal limbo -- unless they supply elections officials with additional proof they are who they say they are.
More than one-third of the people on the ''no match'' list live in Miami-Dade or Broward counties -- most notably Mario Chalmers, a Heat guard who starred in last year's Final Four college basketball championships.
