TAMPA (FOX 13) – Hundreds of thousands of voters registered with the Independent Party of Florida started receiving letters this week notifying them that their political party has disbanded. The move has left the party founder, Ernie Bach of Largo, furious with what he considers an over-reaction by the Florida Division of Elections.
“It’s a bureaucratic boondoggle that is unbelievable,” Bach told FOX 13 Tuesday. “According to the Division of Elections, they have obliterated the status of all Independent voters in the state of Florida. We now have zero.”
