FloriDuh refers to the 2000 Presidential Election where hanging chads (the little pieces of paper "punched"out of a voting ballot", were the cause of a court dispute over the final outcome that stretched for weeks and finally ended with the US Supreme court deciding the winner!
Well, my little state is doing it again, only this time the outcome of the election does not hang in the balance, just the pride and probable job of the State Elections Supervisor. 48 hours after every news media outlet in the world declared President Barack Obama the winner, FloriDuh, is still tabulating. Apparently, with all of the organization of a 3 Stooges, Abbott and Costello, Marx Brothers and Keystone Kops reunion.
The reasons are as follows according to the NBC Network:
A reduction in the number days on which Floridians could vote early - Yep, from 14 to 8 days, but the total hours were the same, 96!
Litigation over voting hours - The Democrats filed a lawsuit saying this was discriminatory, they won, must not have been!
A reduction in the number of voting locations on Election Day - Many locations no long qualify because they don't qualify under the American Disabilities Act and school districts were afraid of sexual predators on school grounds!
The sheer length of the Florida ballot itself, with 11 constitutional provisions for voters to mull over - Since 8 of the 11 provisions failed and all had less votes total than the Presidential candidates what's the problem?
The lengthy counting of absentee ballots after Election Day -You couldn't count them as they came in so there were very few left on Election Day?
Seems to me, all or some of these would have been concerns in every other state, but FloriDuh continues to count. Hopefully, someone remembers to turn out the lights when they get a final tally because no one is going to care!
