Summary The Nation examines the systematic attempts in Florida to keep black voters from voting, most notably ex-cons. "After reviewing The Nation's findings, voter demographics authority David Bositis concluded that the purge-and-block program was 'a patently obvious technique to discriminate against black voters.'" The block-and-purge program cost $4 million, which would not have been spent if results were not expected, The Nation reports.
