Longtime Floridian Eileen Selis knows what it’s like to get a purge letter from the state:
“I was frightened. I’ve no reason to be, but you know, you get that, and you get a little scared.”
Selis is 76. She was born in Pennsylvania in 1935. Her parents hail from New York and Pennsylvania. And She’s one of about 2600 people who have received similar letters. The move comes as the state attempts to verify the status of more than 180-thousand Florida voters it suspects of being non-U.S. Citizens.
