(Newser) – You can't actually recall a US senator in Florida, but Tea Party activists aren't letting a little thing like that thwart their efforts to recall Marco Rubio. Radio host KrisAnne Hall says she and a group of other conservatives are helping draft legislation that would allow senators in the state to face recall elections, the National Review Online reports. Hall says that, amongst other things, they're ticked off at Rubio's support for the immigration bill. "They’re angry because they feel they’ve been deceived," she says.

The Tea Party in Florida is tiny. They are the small minority of white bigots that live in the state. Cubans which form a large portion of the state's conservatives have to be on board to immigration reform otherwise they would be a bunch of hypocrites since they unfairly get amnesty while other Hispanics with the same if not worse political situations get screwed. Other conservatives are not as bigoted as Tea Partiers and don't care. So we are talking about 5% of Florida voters if not less. So should Rubio give in to demands of the 5% and alienate the rest of his support or should he stick with the rest and tell the Tea Party to suck it?

{AHEM} "Ex Post Facto" laws are Unconstitutional. Ergo, if they do create a recall law under Floida's State Constitution (yes, State Governments are empowered to impeach or recall their Congressmen or Senators, if their State Constitution permits it), if they do create a recall law, then Rubio need merely smile, and point out that he was elected before the law was made, and it cannot be used to remove him.
