How can Florida do this?

I dunno what stage this is in but Florida Repubs. are wanting to pass a law to make it illegal to be a Democan in their state?
Can they actually do this?

Re: How can Florida do this?

They can pass any law they want, but a law like that would almost certainly be found to be unconstitutional by the courts and get repealed.

Re: How can Florida do this?

What law are you referring to? Did you research it yourself? There's a good chance the media is just lying about it like they did when they made up the "Don't Say Gay" bill.

Re: How can Florida do this?

Is that similar to the don't criticize the Jews bill they are trying to pass?

A Republican in Florida's Legislature has filed a bill that, if enacted, would eliminate the Florida Democratic Party.

“The Ultimate Cancel Act,” filed Tuesday by state Sen. Blaise Ingoglia, would require the state’s Division of Elections to “immediately cancel” the filings of any political party whose platform had “previously advocated for, or been in support of, slavery or involuntary servitude.”

The bill, called SB 1248, would require Florida officials to notify all registered voters who belong to any canceled parties that their parties no longer exist. It would also change their voter registrations to “no party affiliation” and “provide procedures” for those voters to update their affiliations to “an active political party.”

The bill would allow any canceled political parties to re-register with the Florida State Department — but only under the condition that the party change its name to something “substantially different from the name of any other party previously registered” with the agency.

The proposed legislation doesn’t explicitly mention the Democratic Party. But the party, throughout much of the early and mid-1800s, supported slavery. Southern Democrats in particular supported protecting slavery in the U.S. and opposed civil rights reforms for decades after the Civil War. The party underwent a major realignment in the 19th century, and support for such policies has been absent from its platform or general discourse for many years.

Florida Democrats said the intention of the bill was abundantly clear.

“Presenting a bill that would disenfranchise 5 million voters is both unconstitutional and unserious. Under Ron DeSantis, Senator Ingoglia is using his office to push bills that are nothing more than publicity stunts instead of focusing on the issues that matter most to Floridians,” the Florida Democratic Party said in a statement.

I just don't see how this can be legal to do.
It seems the Dems. should be too powerful for this to happen to them.
And if they do it, then will blue states cancel the Repub. party in theirs?

NBC News is liberal.There's a good chance the lamestream media is just lying about it like they did when they made up the Russian collusion ruse. And Florida is Trump's territory, he can do with it how ever he likes or how his supporters are told to do, as well.
