Tavares, FL - Lake County - Oct. 11, 2012
This "killer" video below is from Florida Watchdog and includes a series of questions from a TV reporter about how Broward County has dead people on the voter rolls, etc and the Supt of Elections says it is not her job to investigate, but the State Elections department says she can initiate her OWN investigation.
Scott avoids a question about whether the Supt. of Elections should investigate, but says they are elected officials and the local voters can decide if she is doing her job.
Then on the same video is a interview with Congresswoman Ileana Ro-Lehtinen who also says voter ID is good and people should not be objecting to efforts to ensure voter rolls are up to date and accurate, and that only valid voters are voting.
Broward County Republicans Investigate and find hundreds of dead people still on county voter rolls, and over 5,000 were purged from rolls:

Here is another article on dead voters, including Miami-Dade County.
You get the idea that each County has to investigate if their Supt. of Elections is actually cleaning up voting polls using computer matches and other modern investigative techniques, or they are still following 1950’s methods. As the one TV reporter said when questioning Scott, the State Elections Dept. DID say that the Elections Superintendents CAN launch their own investigation. If they don’t, maybe voters should throw them out.
