Florida Democratic League & PULSE stand for Marriage and Voter Rights
Directors from the Florida Democratic League and People United to Lead the Struggle for Equality (PULSE) along with their attorney, recently spoke from the offices of PULSE in support of the 8 million Florida voters who cast their ballot on the Florida Marriage Protection Amendment (FMPA) during the historic 2008 Presidential elections which elected America's first African-American President.
Anti-voting extremists filed a lawsuit in on January 21st, asking a trial court judge to throw out the results of the 2008 elections which enshrined respect for marriage as the union of one man, one woman in the Florida Constitution.
Dr. Eladio Jose Armesto, Florida Democratic League (FDL) and Nathaniel Wilcox, PULSE, were joined by local attorney Alex Alfano and other community leaders.
"The lawsuit directly infringes on Florida voters' rights to amend their state constitution and their access to the political process," said the coalition's attorney, Alexander Alfano.
African-Americans in this country have literally died for the right to vote, now anti-voting extremists are now trying to kill their vote for FMPA, while 62% of Floridians voted "yes" for FMPA, 71% of African-Americans voted for it.
It's sad that we are still even having this conversation in 2014.
