Elder Patriot – The Tampa Bay Times has reported:
The Florida Department of State has asked federal prosecutors to look into faulty forms sent to voters in at least four counties that may have caused them to miss the deadline for fixing problems with their mail-in ballots. Emails released by the Department show that the forms appear to have been sent by the state Democratic Party.
According to reports, Republican attorneys familiar with Democrats’ electoral strategies, and their penchant for finding sympathetic judges willing (anxious?) to stretch (break?) existing election laws so that “every vote will be counted,” there appears to have been an organized effort to manipulate and violate election laws.
If the allegations are true, Democrats manipulated a sympathetic judge into extending an election that should have been completed in 10 days – 7 days of early voting, two days off, and then election day – up to an additional two weeks.
That time, according to a person familiar with the attorneys contemplating bringing the case, allowed Democrats to find (manufacture?) an additional 83,000 votes in one of the counties (Broward) alone.
In essence, it is alleged that Democrats had designed and implemented a plan that would provide them with the power to target the number of votes they would need to overcome the Republican candidate’s lead.
The question is whether the laws that were in place on the day of the election were upheld? And, if they weren’t, why weren’t they and who orchestrated the almost two-week delay?
The investigation was requested in a letter sent by Bradley McVay, general counsel to Florida’s Department of State, to the U.S. Attorneys for the northern, middle and southern districts of Florida.
At issue is whether Florida’s Democratic Party (FDP) deliberately orchestrated and then participated in election fraud.
In an email chain released as part of the Department of State’s Tuesday document dump, Citrus County Supervisor of Elections Susan Gill told DOS officials that a voter who received one of the cure affidavits with the wrong date had also received a call from a number identified as the Tallahassee office of the Florida Democratic Party.
This is an indication the FDP was reaching out about her vote by mail ballot.
Why was the FDP following up with voters after their votes had been cast? And, for what possible purpose?
Gill is concerned that Democrats may have mixed up the deadline for fixing mail-in ballots with the deadline for provisional ballots. She then said “but a bigger problem is the fact they actually changed one of the DOE forms.”
It is legal for both political parties to send this form to voters to help them fix their ballots, but it is a criminal offense to alter a form.
This appears to be at the center of the potential RICO case. It’s clear, from evidence used in court to have the vote counting extended, that the cure date had been changed by Democrats in four counties.
Who changed the date and for what purpose. The act of changing the date required an over action to be taken.
In his letter to the U.S. prosecutors, McVay wrote:
“Altering a form in a manner that provides the incorrect date for a voter to cure a defect … imposes a burden on the voter significant enough to frustrate the voter’s ability to vote.”
