Florida’s Republican Governor Rick Scott thought he could take advantage of Hurricane Matthew to disenfranchise Democratic voters in time for the presidential election, but yesterday a federal judge said “nope.”

Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) last Thursday refused to extend the state’s voting registration deadline in the wake of Hurricane Matthew.

The Florida Democratic Party sued Scott after he refused to extended the Oct. 11 deadline.

The court order issued Monday sets a hearing for Wednesday morning to discuss the possibility of extending it even further.

“Other states ravished by Hurricane Matthew extended their registration deadline to protect voters,” Walker said in the 16-page order. “In fact, fifteen other states, including, for example, Iowa, even allow registration on Election Day. It is incomprehensible that Florida could not follow suit.”
