Pinellas elections chief bashes voting bill



The major elections bill shoved through the House recently has another foe: Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark, who has taken her own share of flak for supporting mail ballots over early voting sites.

The Republican elections chief lashed out, at times caustically, at the Republican-sponsored bill in a letter to lawmakers today:

"We all know this legislation is not really election reform. This bill is an obvious effort to impose blatantly self-serving solutions in order to resolve manufactured problems that do not exist, and it would create barriers to the election process, limiting access to voter registration and ballots," Clark's letter says.
