They didn’t do it because all of a sudden they were being gracious. They did it because a federal court said Florida had a right to clean up its voter roles. Score this one as a victory for Gov. Scott:

THE HILL – The Obama administration has agreed to let Florida use a national law enforcement database to purge residents suspected of not being U.S. citizens from their voter rolls.

The decision was announced in a letter to state GOP Gov. Rick Scott, who has pushed for Florida to receive access to the Homeland Security (DHS) registry of noncitizen residents, the Associated Press first reported.

The administration had blocked Florida’s request for access to the database for months, but the decision to allow access was spurred by a court decision in another voting-rights case in favor of the state.

The decision is a victory for Republican officials in Florida and many other key swing states who say they are trying to prevent voter fraud.
