Rewarding failure

Remember the Florida company that was responsible for the inaccurate database that disenfranchised tens of thousands of people in the 2000 elections, claiming they were felons barred from voting when they actually weren’t? Republicans claimed it was an innocent mistake by the company concerned.

So that’s what punishment for incompetence looks like…
