Was Mickey Mouse registered to vote in Florida?



In defending a massive overhaul to an election law that passed last week, Rep. Eric Eisnaugle, R-Orlando, made the case that many of the changes are needed to prevent against possible voter fraud. In particular, Eisnaugle talked about fraud committed by third-party registration groups like the League of Women Voters, and until it ceased to exist, ACORN.

In the middle of his floor comments, Eisnaugle dropped a whopper.

"Mickey Mouse was registered to vote," Eisnaugle said.

Is that true? PolitiFact Florida decided to investigate.
