FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced the first arrests made by the state’s new elections police force Thursday: Twenty people previously incarcerated for murder or sexual assault who he said had illegally voted in the 2020 election.

“This is just the opening salvo,” DeSantis said. “This is not the sum total of 2020.”

DeSantis made the announcement flanked by law enforcement officers in Broward County, which has the most registered Democrats of any county in Florida. The arrests came about six weeks after the office opened and five days before the state’s primary election.

In recent years, Florida has introduced new voting regulations. Legislation passed in 2021 and again this year cut down on the number of ballot drop boxes and also make the possession of more than two ballots a felony. DeSantis said that is aimed at eliminating “ballot harvesting.”

The arrests come at a time when election workers and officials have been coping with an ongoing barrage of criticism and personal attacks in response to Donald Trump’s false claims [bahahahahahahahahahaha]
that the 2020 White House race was tainted by fraud — a lie [keeheeheeheeheeheehee] that has sparked distrust among his followers in the veracity of the country’s electoral system.


Ain't the objectivity of the SwampMedia a hoot?

pb's tell you Dems you ain't nuthin yet...with the GOPs quest for honest election.

Seein as Dems need to cheat to win...well, you know.

    That's it?! Twenty votes out of more than 10,000,000 Florida votes cast in 2020? That's worth an announcement?

    Exactly. My brother says that small strokes fell great oaks.

    As Sam and Dave sang, "Hold on, I'm Coming."

    As BTO sang, "You ain't Seen Nothin Yet."

    GOPs will be watching you this time around...and, by 024? Oy!!!!!!!

    The illegal votes were cast by former convicts. Criminals and scofflaws have a natural affinity with Trump and the GOP. Until and unless DeSantis reveals the illegal votes were cast for Democrats, we have to assume they were cast for Trump and Republicans.

    Desantis didn't say whether they were Democrats or Republicans but we do know this;

    "DeSantis said the people arrested were disqualified from voting because they had been convicted of either murder or sexual assault and they do not have the right to vote. He said their rights were not automatically restored under Amendment 4, which excluded people who have been convicted of sexual assault and homicide from having their rights restored."

    This suggests that they were probably Republicans hoping Trump could find a place for them on Trump's "Team Crazy". 🤣

    GOPs support election integrity.

    Period.

    Nah! The Republicans are the ones who tried to steal this past election...Trouble is...They got caught

    Mostly from Broward, Miami-Dade counties. Very heavy dim counties.

    Nuthin'.

    You got nuthin' at all. And plenty of it, Hate.

    Let's say they find ten times as many examples (which they never will) as they have already discovered.

    Do you seriously think Trump would be very successful in any court using 210 examples of people voting fraudulently to overturn the entire election?

    I wish you could experience even the briefest, tiniest little moment of realization of just how stupid you always sound with this idiocy.

    So twenty people broke the law and they got caught. What's your point?

    Ya know, given the track record of the people who are caught actually committing voter fraud, the vast majority of those 20 he found were likely Republicans.

    If they were Democrats, DeSantis would have announced that. Instead, he opts to leave out which candidate they were cast for and allow his ignorant supporters to reach the conclusion that they must've been votes that were cast for Biden.

    First. Wasn't it the Dims that accused the GOP of being racists because the GOP wanted an "ID" to vote?

    Secondly, there is a reason why DiSantis hasn't announced what party they're linked to. He's sick and tired of one side or the other slinging bullsht around and continuing the division. I've noticed how often he attacks the dims. Which is almost never compared to any other politician. He's doing things to make our elections better and more honest. For both sides.


  11. by Donna on August 20, 2022 12:02 pm
    He doesn't have to mention "the Dims". Skilled politicans like DeSantis are adept at dog whistling what they want their constituents to believe.

    The fraudulent votes in question could easily be made known to the public without divulging the identities of the voters. That he hadn't done that leads me to suspect that at least some and perhaps even the majority of them were cast for Trump.


  12. by oldedude on August 20, 2022 12:38 pm
    I disagree having watched him.

    po,

    I've been saying since before J6 that the Dem cheating is real and substantial and done in a way that it can never be traced or measured. At the moment those fraudulent ballot harvested votes were separated from whatever security envelope a state required, the deal was done.

    Dems have been ingenious cheaters for pret'near 200 years. Since Tammany Hall.



  14. by oldedude on August 20, 2022 5:32 pm
    A county near me in CO, ADMITTED there were problems with the voting (he was the election director). I put out his view of it on the site. The dims on the site said that was nothing, that he wasn't telling the truth, blahblahblah...

    When an elected official (or appointed for that matter) admits to problems, it is a horrible hazard for them. I take them at their word much faster than someone who is "perfect."

    I think that is the main problem for most people. No one is claiming this is a HUGE problem. They are saying there are flaws in the system we need to fix. Why blame this back and forth? That's just f*****g stoopid. Like white trash, tires on the roof stoopid. There are problems.

    As they taught us in Intel school though. Those who deny the problem are usually those invested in it.

    HtS,
    So your position is that "Dem cheating is real and substantial and done in a way that it can never be traced or measured" but Trump's obvious and apparent lawbreaking in which he's facing about five separate investigations are all politically motivated witch hunts. Do I have that right?

    As for historic precedence, generations of the Trump family has been involved in various illegal activities, slum lording, grifting and tax cheating since the late 19th century when Friedrich Trump (dodging the obligatory Bavarian military service) arrived in America.

    Absolutely not. I'm saying that cheating is real, which is something you doesn't believe in. MY VIEW is that all cheating is fukking wrong. Period. end of story. You defend cheating. that is an issue for me. You have obviously never worked in a bureaucracy, so I'm "supposed" to give some,,, I'm not. Show to me, the same way you show to the GOP they are cheating. I will listen. You haven't shown that at all.


  17. by Curt_Anderson on August 20, 2022 10:06 pm
    Of course I believe election cheating happens. I just don't believe it's significant enough to change the outcomes of any congressional, statewide or national election.

    Election cheating happens in a variety of ways: 1. people who vote who aren't eligible to vote, 2. eligible voters who are denied the right to vote, etc. Of course, DeSantis isn't pursuing the second type of election cheating.

    Ron DeSantis just proved how rare election cheating is. There were about 11 million votes cast in the last election in Florida. The Florida election police have been in business since April and they found only 20 suspect votes.

    As I was growing up, we lived in a town that was known for Italian organized crime. In the 1960's we got a new sheriff, a bohunk by the name of Tahonovich. In his first year, a couple of kids drowned tubing in the Arkansas River. Dan, with all respect dredged the river trying to find the kids. He was warned not to do that by Whiskers Incerto. He did anyway. Along with the kids, he found three bodies. Adult males that had been dead about 4-6+ years. All were paid up on their taxes and had voted the "union card" in all elections since they were murdered. mmmmmmm.....

    It's interesting. This unit has been around for two+ months. Generally speaking, our cases took about 12-36 months to actually get an arrest. And honestly, this is a state with a very low amount of voter crimes.

    I wonder. Who is keeping people from voting? That is a really interesting "problem" to me.

    Like I have said numerous times before, if you don't have a state issued DL or ID, it's illegal to have a bank account, collect social security, be on welfare, have a job, have utilities in your name, and many other everyday facts of life.

    SO. If you don't have a state issued ID, you are either off the grid (no electric, don't register your vehicles, have paid off your land, and don't have a bank account) you are living in eastern WA state/ or Idaho (just a guess), living in a compound, OR you are working for a cartel and are not going to vote anyway.

    The possibility of you actually living and being a part of society is virtually impossible.
