MoveOn Spanish-language ads hit Mitt Romney on Rick Scott's voter purge

in Uncategorized by

Politico’s Morning Score has the scoop on MoveOn.org Political Action going on Florida TV with their first Spanish-language ad of the cycle to accuse Gov. Rick Scott of disproportionately targeting Latinos with his purge of the voter rolls and to say that Romney could benefit if Latinos are prohibited from voting. It’s a five-figure buy but that will put the ad up in Miami, Orlando and Tampa from Thursday through Saturday. Here’s the translated script: “With exclusion from the voting rolls by Governor Scott, Latinos will be the most affected. And if the Latinos don’t vote, Mitt Romney wins. This exclusion is not only illegal, it’s also racist. Why doesn’t Mitt Romney disapprove?’ MoveOn has decided to make challenging voter suppression a top priority this cycle.
