What is going in Florida? While the junior senator from Florida, Marco Rubio (R), defended Florida's controversial voter purge law ("I wouldn't characterize it as an effort to purge Latinos from the voting rolls. I think there's the goal of ensuring that everyone who votes in Florida is qualified to vote. If you're not a citizen of the United States, you shouldn't be voting. That's the law."), his colleague from the Sunshine State, Bill Nelson (D), spoke from the floor of Senate and slammed the law for being un-American.

This is getting serious, folks. What do you think? Kind of a convenient move just months before a national election in a state that will very likely determine the presidency.
