That was fast

It was only yesterday that a judge ruled that Florida had to release the felon purge list to the media and already the Miami Herald is out with a report that nearly 2,100 voters on that list could be wrongly barred from voting in November. Did they really double-check several thousand listings in a single day? Not likely. It's more likely that the Herald has had access to the list for several weeks but was holding back on reporting this story until the courts ruled on whether the list could be released. I would imagine some upset local election official leaked the list to the media well in advance.

(btw, I love the picture on the story of the guy holding a bible and his clemency document. Nice touch.)
