Federal prosecutors reviewing altered election documents tied to Florida Democrats

TALLAHASSEE — The Florida Department of State last week asked federal prosecutors to investigate dates that were changed on official state election documents, the first voting “irregularities” it has flagged in the wake of the 2018 elections.

The concerns, which the department says can be tied to the Florida Democratic Party, center around date changes on forms used to fix vote-by-mail ballots sent with incorrect or missing information. Known as “cure affidavits,” those documents used to fix mail ballots were due no later than 5 p.m. on Nov. 5 — the day before the election. But affidavits released on Tuesday by the DOS show that documents from four different counties said the ballots could be returned by 5 p.m. on Thursday, which is not accurate.

Among those counties is Broward, which emerged as the epicenter of controversy as three statewide races and three local legislative races went into recounts following the Nov. 6 elections. Republicans have pointed to embattled Broward Elections chief Brenda Snipes' record of past election gaffes in arguing that the largely Democratic country is tilted against them — perhaps fraudulently so.

Apparently a number of incorrectly-dated "cure forms" have gone out, with follow-up phone calls, coming from the Democratic Party of Florida.

That these documents came from four different counties certainly at least diminishes the idea of a one-off innocent error.

why can these people not follow the rules like everyone else has too.
why do they get to just make up their own rules.

the laws of the state are clear regarding mail in ballots with the exception of military ones.

it doesn't surprise me that it is broward though the lady down there is a cluster mess.

This is obviously fake news, cuz the Dems have sworn up and down that there is no voter fraud in this country!

This would be a possible case of electoral fraud, not voter fraud.

Super glad I could clear that up for you.

Maybe because they believe they are above the rules?

Wouldn't be the first time that leftists had an over inflated self-opinion of themselves or their causes.

Those crooks in Florida are NOT shaking in their boots.

They know that the blue wave has weakened the Trump administration so much that those prosecutors would not dare bring a case against anyone.

It's all just a big show.

Any prosecution would be met with screams of "racism."

Those crooks in Florida are laughing their heads off. They know that they are untouchable.

And in the future, the Democrats won't even have to resort to vote fraud: the people of Florida have decided to let hundreds of thousands of ex-felons vote.

Ah, yes, the Democrats are singing, "Good times are here again."

Apparently this was wider than reported above, which stated four counties were involved:

The altered forms surfaced in Broward, Santa Rosa, Citrus and Okaloosa counties and were reported to federal prosecutors to review for possible election fraud as Florida counties complete a required recount in three top races.

But an email obtained by the USA TODAY NETWORK-Florida shows that Florida Democrats were organizing a broader statewide effort beyond those counties to give voters the altered forms to fix improper absentee ballots after the Nov. 5 deadline. Democratic party leaders provided staffers with copies of a form, known as a "cure affidavit," that had been modified to include an inaccurate Nov. 8 deadline.

https://www.naplesnews.com/story/ne...an-altered-state-form-fix-ballots/2009178002/

As a reminder of what the problem is:

The document Kim attached to her email was an altered state form to fix an absentee ballot with signature problems. The altered form modified the original state document by replacing the deadline identified as "no later than 5 p.m. on the day before the election" with a new deadline "no later than 5 p.m. Thursday Nov. 8."

There's quite a bit more to this story. I recommend reading the whole article.

Coming from someone who pretends to care about process and....what was it "due process"?....it's rather strange to see an immediate assumption that a report about prosecutors reviewing a thing means that guilt is conclusive.



You really don't realize how transparent it is, do you? If an (R) is accused, you squawk about due process and the presumption of innocence. If a (D) is alleged to have farted, well, that's clear proof they're evil.

Accusations = guilt remember?
she has to prove she didn't do anything wrong until then she is guilty.
you don't seem to like that when it applies to people with D's in front of their names.

No i am simply applying the liberal method of thinking. you don't seem to like it that much so you should probably change it.
