Florida tells decorated WWII vet to prove he's a US citizen5/31/2012
You'd think the Bronze Star that Bill Internicola earned during World War II would prove he's a U.S. citizen. Florida officials recently informed the 91-year-old veteran that he's not, and that he needs to prove otherwise if he wants to vote in that state. The Brooklyn-born Internicola somehow found himself on the wrong side of a controversial program meant to remove noncitizens from Florida's voter rolls, and he's not happy. "I went crazy," he said. "I've been voting since I was 18 years old."
Internicola had 30 days to respond to the elections division. He sent his discharge papers and tour of duty. They should send him an apology. And a thank you note.
How would you have responded if you got this type of notice?
