TO SCHOOL, YOU HAVE NO WAY

OF KNOWING THAT THEY'RE NOT

OFF VODKA EYEBALLING AT A

RAINBOW PARTY PLAYING THE

CHOKING GAME TO GET A DARE

THESE PEOPLE DESTROYING

AMERICA.

PEOPLE DESTROYING AMERICA,

THIS IS THE TOWN OF PACE,

FLORIDA.

AND THESE ARE THE CHILDREN

OF PACE.

THEIR INNOCENCE LOST AT THE

HANDS OF THEIR OWN TEACHER.

A TEACHER WHO CROSSED THE

LINE AND BETRAYED THEIR

TRUST, DAWN QUARRELS WHO

LURED THEM INTO COMMITTING

AN UNSPEAKABLE ACT THEY WERE

TOO YOUNG TO UNDERSTAND.

>> I AM BEING FINED BY THE

STATE 6 FLORIDA FOR

REGISTERING KIDS TO VOTE.

>> SOME AS YOUNG AS 17, AND

SO IMPRESSIONABLE.

>> YEAH, I THINK SHE MAKES

VOTING PRETTY COOL.

>> Stephen: YEAH, BECAUSE

DAWN CAN'T GET ENOUGH.

>> I LOVE VOTING.

AND I TELL MY KIDS THAT YOU

ARE GOING TO LOVE THE

FEELING OF CASTING A BALLOT.

>> Stephen: SURE, WE ADULTS

LOVE IT BUT THESE ARE

FEELING KIDS JUST DON'T KNOW

HOW TO PROCESS.

>> WE WERE ON A LEARNING

BUILD RIGHTS IN VOTING.

>> WE GOT IN THE ROOM.

SHE SAID I WHAT LIKE TO

REGISTER YOU TO VOTE TODAY

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO.

>> IF YOU WANT TO REGISTER

FOR IT JUST SIGN IT, FILL IT

OUT.

>> I GAVE IT BACK TO HER FOR

HER TO TURN INTO THE OFFICE

OF ELECTIONS.

>> SHE REGISTERED ME TO VET.

>> SHE REGISTERED ME TO

VOTE.

>> MISS QUARRELS REGISTERED

ME TO VOTE.

>> I DID IT WHEN EVERYONE

ELSE DID IT.

>> Stephen: THAT'S WHEN

AUTHORITIES MOVED IN WITH

LIGHTNING SPEED.

>> A MONTH AND A HALF AFTER

THAT I RECEIVED WORD THAT I

WAS BEING CITED BY THE STATE

OF FLORIDA.

>> Stephen: BUSTED, AND

CHARGED WITH.

>> VOTER REGISTRATION FRAUD.

>> Stephen: A SERIOUS CRIME

THAT COMES WITH A $1,000

FINE UNDER A NEW FLORIDA

LAW.

>> GOVERNOR RICK SCOTT

SIGNED A SWEEPING ELECTION

REFORM LAW THIS WEEK.

SUPPORTERS SAY THE LAW WILL

PREVENT FRAUD BUT-- .

>> Stephen: BUT NOTHING T IS

DESIGNED TO CATCH FRAUDSTARS

IN THE FACT.

DIRECTOR OF THE AMERICAN

CIVIL LIBERTIES UNION AND

CASUAL MAN HOWARD EXPLAINS

HOW.

>> IT INDICATES THAT PEOPLE

WENT OUT AND REGISTERED NEW

VOTERS, COULD TURN IN THE

NEW VOTER REGISTRATIONS

WITHIN TEN DAYS.

NOW THE LEGISLATURE BROUGHT

IT DOWN TO 48 HOURS.

>> I DID NOT MAKE IT WITHIN

THE 48 HOURS.

>> Stephen: FRAUD.

>> I DID NOT-- .

>> Stephen: FRAUD, FRAUD,

FRAUD.

>> THERE IS NO VOTER FRAUD.

I DON'T THINK THERE IS A

PERSON WALKING AROUND THE

STREETS OF FLORIDA THAT

BELIEVES THAT THE VOTER

SUPPRESSION LAW OF 2011 IS

ABOUT VOTER FRAUD.

>> Stephen: WELL, HERE'S A

PERSON WALKING AROUND THE

STREETS OF FLORIDA.

WHAT DOES HE BELIEVE.

>> I THINK THIS LAW WILL

HELP INSURANCE THAT WE DON'T

HAVE VOTER FRAUD.

>> Stephen: DONE.

STATE REPRESENTATIVE RICH

DOLLAR CROSSO IS ONE OF 9

BRAVE LAWMAKERS WHO CAME OUT

OF THE SHADOWS TO SUPPORT

THIS ANTI-FRAUD BILL.

HERE'S HOW IT WORKS.

>> IF YOU ARE-- SOMEBODY

BREAKS INTO YOUR CAR AND

STEALS YOUR STUFF BECAUSE

YOU DIDN'T LOCK YOUR CAR,

WELL THEN DOW LOCK IT LATER

ON OR YOU HAVE LOCKED YOUR

CAR TODAY.

>> Stephen: SEE, IT'S

SIMPLE.

THE CAR IS THE VOTING BOOTH.

THE LOCK IS THE LAW.

YOUR STUFF IS THE BALLOT,

AND THE THIEF IS THE-- HOLD

ON, WAIT A MINUTE-- NO,

OKAY.

THE LOCK IS THE LAW, THE CAR

IS THE BALLOT-- WAIT, NO,

STOP, STOP, NO.

THE CAR IS THE LAW.

THE BOOTH IS THE BALLOT,

YOUR STUFF IS THE THIEF, AND

AND-- OKAY.

FRAUD.

HOWEVER IT WORKS, THE LAW

PREVENTS THE STUDENTS FROM

VOTE-- LIKE DAWN QUARRELS.

>> THIS LAW USES THE THREAT

OF FRAUD TO BASICALLY TRY TO

MAKE IT MORE DIFFICULT FOR

BLACK PEOPLE AND COLLEGE

STUDENTS AND YOUNG PEOPLE

AND LANGUAGE MINORITIES FROM

VOTING.

>> Stephen: WHY WOULD THEY

WANT TO DO THAT.

>> THEY TEND TO VOTE

DEMOCRATIC AND THEY VOTED

OVERWHELMINGLY FOR PRESIDENT

OBAMA.

>> Stephen: FRAUD!

>> AND I THINK WE CAN ALL

AGREE, FRAUD SOUNDS BAD.

>> FRAUD SOUNDS HORRIBLE.

>> FRAUD SOUNDS LIKE

STEALING AN ELECTION.

>> FRAUD SOUNDS CRIMINAL.

>> IF THERE WAS ANY EVIDENCE

OF FRAUD.

>> Stephen: WANT EF?

-- EVIDENCE?

ACCORD TOGETHER BRENNAN

CENTER FOR JUSTICE VOTER

FRAUD DOES HAPPEN.

POINT 00004% OF THE TIME.

>> THERE ARE PROBABLY A

LARGER NUMBER OF SHARK

ATTACKS IN FLORIDA THAN

THERE ARE CASES OF VOTER

FRAUD.

>> Stephen: MEANING THIS IS

WHAT DAWN QUARRELS WANTS FOR

YOUR CHILDREN.

NEED MORE PROOF?

RICH GLORIOSO HAS THE HARD

NUMBERS.

>> RIGHT NOW I DON'T KNOW

THE NUMBERS BUT I KNOW THERE

ARE SOME CASES.

>> Stephen: GOOD ENOUGH.

>> BUT WE DECIDED THAT THIS

WILL HELP US PREVENT FRAUD.

>> Stephen: GREAT.

>> PREVENTING FRAUD IS KIND

OF LIKE WHETHER YOU LOCK

YOUR CAR OR NOT.

>> Stephen: RIGHT, RIGHT,

THE CAR THING, GOT IT.

THESE INNOCENT CHILDREN

DESERVE A CHANCE TO VOTE

WHEN THEY'RE READY.

AT THE RIGHT TIME, AND FOR

THE RIGHT CANDIDATE.

NOT FOR SOME CHEAP THRILL.

>> IF YOU WRITE IF OR PUNCH

IT WILL JUST BE CALL BECAUSE

YOU ARE LIKE I HAVE A SAY.

>> YES.

>> DONE.

I PUNCHED THE HOLE.

>> Stephen: DO YOU REALLY

WANT YOUR CHILD TO PUNCH THE

HOLE BEFORE THEY'RE READY.

>> KID, IF YOU START THEM

OUT YOUNG THEY WILL VOTE FOR

THE REST OF THEIR LIFE.

THEY WILL BE SUPERVOTERS BY

THE TIME THEY ARE IN THEIR

40s.

>> Stephen: IF THEY LIVE

THAT LONG.

>> HEY, HAVE YOU SEEN HELEN.

>> THE LAST TIME I SAW HER

SHE WAS VOTING.

>> OH.

>> Stephen: THERE'S ONLY ONE

WAY TO STOP THIS FROM

HAPPENING TO YOUR KIDS.

>> I LOCKED MY CAR IN THE

PARKING LOT TODAY.

>> Stephen: YES, LOCK YOUR

CAR, AMERICA.

AND LOCK YOUR KIDS.

BECAUSE DAWN QUARRELS IS

INSATIABLE.

>> I'M NOT GOING TO STOP

REGISTERING KIDS TO VOTE.

>> Stephen: THAT'S WHY SHE

IS THE PEOPLE DESTROYING

AMERICA.

REMEMBER, GIRLS-- YES, GO

AHEAD.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

I KNOW YOU'RE SCARED BUT

IT'S SAFE TO APPLAUD IN

HERE.

HUSBAND TELLS YOU
