Winner and loser of the week in Fla politics



vvote.jpgcurry.jpgWinner of the week: Florida elections supervisors. Republicans and Democrats alike, they proved to be a reassuringly effective check and balance against Gov. Rick Scott administration's ham-fisted voter purge efforts — and for the Florida Republican Party's apparently fraudulent voter registration program.

Loser of the week: Lenny Curry. The GOP has spent years screaming about ACORN and elections fraud with little or no evidence of a widespread problem. Now we learn that the Florida GOP led by Curry paid a consultant with a checkered track record $1.3 million to register voters in Florida. The firm apparently submitted phony registrations across the state.
