Intersection: The Voter Rolls, The Food Scene & Remembering Billy Manes

The ACLU is suing the federal government over the President’s commission looking into voter fraud. Florida says it will only hand over what’s already in the public record, but the ACLU is worried about the commission collecting a national database of voters that includes partial social security numbers and claims the commission’s work is not open enough to the public.

We’re looking at voter rolls in the Sunshine state. A national organization called ERIC is helping a network of states to clean up their voter rolls and wants Florida to join since so many people move here from somewhere else.

And celebrating the life of Orlando icon Billy Manes.
