Skip to comments.Florida Democrats on defense amid election fraud investigation (altered state documents)
Posted on 11/16/2018 8:54:10 PM PST by NotaLowTBoomer
After saying earlier in the week that the state officials were trying divert attention away from the Department of State, which is part of Gov. Rick Scotts administration, the Democrats on Friday took a different approach: They lawyered up.
Upon receiving notice of the allegations that the form was incorrect, FDP took immediate steps, including hiring an independent investigator to review the issues at hand, attorney Mark Herron said in a statement provided by a party spokeswoman. As soon as we know the results of the investigation we will advise you.
Under state law governing fraudulent practices, its a third-degree felony to knowingly and willfully ... make or use any false document, knowing the same to contain any false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or entry connected to the Department of State. While the fraud statute is not contained in the states election code, it relates to the 2018 election because the affidavit in question concerned the elections division, which falls under the Department of State.
WELCOME TO FREE REPUBLIC
Democrats are soooooo lucky the press whores for them...
I’d love the feds to investigate election fraud. Let’s check all the voters id and see how that works for the Democrats.
Interesting question...Maybe cause the ballots were mail-in ?
I wonder if the hoisted by their own incompetence in copying a form in thier system from last election. That form would have been correct in using a November 8 date.
Any election the DNC cannot steal through voter fraud is illegitimate.
The Florida legislature and Governor Desantis need to spend all of 2019 making sure they pass legislation to FIX THESE PROBLEMS ONCE AND FOR ALL. There is no excuse for this after the 2000 debacle.
Require each county to recount this years ballots or some made up sample ballots 60 days before the 2020 election to make sure they know and acknowledge the procedures to be used.
Please explain why it’s dems running the vote counting operations nationwide. Repub governors ought to get a clue and do some fixing.
That is an interesting question. Maybe because there were federal office on the ballot, although it still would make more sense to me to have state prosecutors working it.
My cynical side says they did it so they could say they took action without actually requiring anyone to do anything. Feds won’t do anything because it’s a state law and the state won’t do anything because it was referred to the feds.
I wonder how many of the DIM poll workers and DIM state employee election workers are illegal aliens? Criminals !
it’s been a year.
But hey a welcome is a welcome :)
It has to be voter fraud on a massive scale.
It was !
How and why the American left has devolved into the kind of party one finds in a banana republic is a mystery. That our media is so anxious to promote their corrupt candidates and the low-brow tactics they employ is a tragedy. Do they do it because they can no longer win by promulgating their Orwellian vision of a socialist state, mandated equality of outcome? Perhaps. They will never sell socialism to enough sentient Americans to win. They need millions of uninformed voters to succeed.
We must not let them cheat their way to power over the rest of us. Their ongoing vote fraud must be stopped and the Democrats need to take a look at themselves and at what they have become. It's not a pretty picture. What they have become threatens to destroy the greatest nation on the planet and they are doing it on purpose. They have nothing but contempt for the US as founded and for those of us who love this country.
Then shouldn’t it be referred to the postmaster general? you can file a complaint here:
We can’t let these jerks get away with this any longer.
Apparently there are e-mails obtained by politico that show them talking about altering the documents, and even an voicemail recording obtained by politico
No, the form doesnt contain a date. It refers to 5 p.m. the day before the election.

<><> 18 U.S.C. §241(Conspiracies Against Civil Rights). Violation of Civil Rights under Color of law and conspiracy. Conspiring with others to violate 4th amendment rights.
<><> Possibly full investigations centering on RICO conspiracies under 18 U.S.C. §1962(c) could be warranted because (1) the persons (2) were employed by or associated with a public enterprise (3) that engaged in or affected interstate commerce and that (4) the persons operated or managed the enterprise (5) through a pattern (6) of racketeering activity, and (7) the taxpayers were injured by reason of the pattern of racketeering activity.
