Delegate Dilemma

March 7th, 2008 by flanews

State lawmakers are considering a bill to deny a ballot position to any presidential candidate whose party refused to seat Floridas delegates at its national convention this summer. Questions remain about the ideas constitutionality, but in an effort to force the national Democratic Party to count Floridas delegates, Governor Charlie Crist said the idea is worth studying.

Anythings worth consideration when youre talking about protecting your right to vote and the exercise of democracy. I saw that and read it in some news accounts this morning. Certainly its something I would be willing to look at.

If such a scenario were to unfold, the task of allotting the states 27 electoral votes would likely fall to the states GOP controlled legislature.
