Hey!

How come the lawyer from Loyola did not mention that Federal law prohibits states purging voting rolls 90 days before an election. And (if that weren't enough) the law specifies a hierarchy of databases to be used as the criteria for purging voting rolls. That is the law recognizes that some databases are more trustworthy than others. The vaunted Social Security database it turns out is the very last one to be used (not first). The Federal Government recognizes that this database has a large number of errors.

My source for this information is the New York Times.
