(MIAMI HERALD) — Call 10 people on Miami-Dade’s potential noncitizen voter list and, it seems, one is bound to be under indictment.

So it was with Brutus. Ricardo Brutus, that is.

An immigrant from Haiti, Brutus’ name popped up on a state list of potential noncitizen voters, about 2,000 of whom are in Miami-Dade. Brutus was one of the few people we initially reached while researching the list.

“Trust me, I’m a U.S. citizen. I have a passport and everything,” Brutus said. The registered Democrat said he became a citizen in 2007 before voting in the following presidential and gubernatorial elections. He plans to vote for President Barack Obama in the fall.

But it might be the last Florida election in which he can cast a ballot.
