Gee, it seems like Jebbie's still stealing votes for his brother 

After Florida 2000, could they possibly be that crass? That shameless? Silly! This is the Bush family!

Many Floridians have been shocked to find their names on a new state list of nearly 48,000 people identified as felons who may be ineligible to vote, even though they have no criminal record or have been granted clemency.

"Weird. I've never been arrested for felonies," William Miller, 50, of Tampa.

The unemployed mechanic has no criminal record and is a registered voter. He apparently was confused with a man who has the same first and last name, plus the same birthday - but who has a different middle name and a criminal record.

State officials have said there are people on the list who are not felons, and elections workers have flagged more than 300 people listed who might have received clemency. Others on the list had registered to vote before they received clemency and need to register again, election officials said.

The new list, released Thursday, revives memories of the 2000 presidential election, in which many residents discovered at the polls that they weren't allowed to vote. An error-filled list had been produced by an outside company and elections supervisors removed voters without verifying its accuracy.

On Election Day, anyone who feels they have been inadvertently removed from the voter rolls will be allowed to use a provisional ballot that will be examined later to determine eligibility.

Oh, now I feel better. Examined by whom?
