If they found this many offenses in a state whose 2020 results were mostly uncontested, what might serious investigations turn up in districts with sketchy records?
Florida went from being ground zero in the 2020 Bush-Gore controversy about ‘hanging chads’ and ‘pregnant chads’ to among the smoothest election processes in just 20 years.
That result is even MORE impressive when we think back to all the shenanigans we saw shaking down in Broward back in 2018.
DeSantis promised to clean up the process. He delivered on that process.
But streamlining inefficiencies and problems inherent in the system is a different problem from identifying people actively looking for ways to game that system.
Even Florida wasn’t really following through on the investigation and enforcement side of Florida law … a fact that anyone looking to game the system would gladly exploit. This fact happens to be prevalent throughout the United States.
That’s why, when Dems were busy looking for ways to have fewer safeguards protecting the value of each legal vote from being diluted by illegitimate votes, DeSantis was looking for ways to make the election more secure.
The bumper-sticker slogan for this is ‘make it easy to vote but hard to cheat’.
On July 6, DeSantis announced a new government position had been instituted and filled:
The Office of Election Crimes and Security, proposed by DeSantis and approved by the GOP-led legislature in March, will investigate allegations of election crimes and help oversee the implementation of election security measures, the governor’s team said on Wednesday in announcing the appointment.
“Peter Antonacci has dedicated his career to serving the state of Florida,” DeSantis said in a news release on Wednesday. “I am confident he will lead the Office of Election Crimes and Security with integrity and ensure that Florida’s elections are the most secure in the nation.” –WashingtonExaminer
By mid-August, they had already announced criminal charges.
“The State of Florida has charged and is in the process of arresting 20 individuals across the state for voter fraud,” said the governor.Two men were arrested in Miami-Dade County. They were identified as 56-year-old Robert Lee Wood of Opa-Locka and 57-year-old Ronald Lee Miller of Miami.Two men in Broward County were also taken into custody. Seventy-one-year-old Nathaniel Singleton and 65-year-old Eugene Suggs have been booked at the Broward County Jail.“They are being charged and arrested today with election fraud. This is a third-degree felony in the State of Florida. They could face a $5,000 fine and up to five years in prison for illegally voting in our elections,” said DeSantis. — WSVN
This is not the end of all investigations. They’re just getting started.
Imagine if all those battleground districts with all kinds of election irregularities and Zuckerbucks had the same kind of commitment to bringing criminal charges against anyone who had illegally influenced the election result?
You’d think that the party that spent 4 years ranting about how Russia had rigged the 2016 election would WANT to know for sure nobody was messing with it.
You don’t suppose the left might be afraid of what we find if we DO look into criminal activity around election fruad, do you?
Surely not! After all, for a group who worked so hard to silence anyone who cast doubt on the 2020 results and welcomes nearly 87,000 new auditors with open arms… they should welcome the scrutiny. They have nothing to hide, right?
Better yet, it would give them the ability to brag some more about just what a glorious win Biden really had and put a fork in the doubts raised by 2000 Mules. Doubts like this one:
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
