Florida tells 91-year-old World War II veteran he must prove his citizenship to vote | Fox News

This was too much even for Fox News to swallow. Way to go, Florida! Gotta prevent that voter fraud (that hardly ever happens anyway). Sigh.

=========

A 91-year-old Florida man who won a Bronze star serving in World War II was told by the state of Florida he must prove he is a citizen or he will be removed from voter rolls, The Miami Herald reports.

Bill Internicola told The Miami Herald he was "flabbergasted" when he received a letter in the mail from the Broward Supervisor of Elections saying he must prove he is a citizen in order to vote.
