Florida Republicans crying over Bloomberg.

I love it. My local right wing site is crying about how rich people can buy politicians. I read them the riot act over Citizens United.

Repugs are claiming that Bloomberg committed a felony;

18 U.S. Code § 597

Whoever makes or offers to make an expenditure to any person, either to vote or withhold his vote, or to vote for or against any candidate; and

Whoever solicits, accepts, or receives any such expenditure in consideration of his vote or the withholding of his vote—

Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if the violation was willful, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.

I replied that Bloomberg is just making a wrong - right. Why do former felons have to be debt free in order to vote? Isn't that a poll tax?

I'm sure that Bloomberg touched all bases with this but I love the smell of red neck panic in the morning.
