Gov Ron DeSantis, Florida, and fair and free elections were a winner today when a judge overruled a decision by a lower court and approved Florida’s voter integrity laws. The recently passed laws were struck down portions of some of the provisions claiming they were unconstitutional and discriminatory. The judge didn’t stop there. He also ordered all new voting laws be submitted to the federal government for review.
Florida appealed to a federal appeals court that found that the judge “failed to properly account for what might be called the presumption of legislative good faith.” The original judge never took that into account before making his decision. I find it funny that the racists in the Democratic party somehow think that Blacks and Hispanics are so inept and uneducated that they are incapable of voting or even registering to vote.
So, if Blacks and Hispanics are more than capable of registering and voting, why do Democrats oppose such laws? Because by verifying signatures, it makes it so much harder for them to cheat. That’s what this is really all about. That’s why Democrats love mail-in balloting. It is the easiest way to stuff a ballot box. They also press for ballot harvesting, which allows harvesters to prey on nursing home residents to pump up the numbers for Democrats.
On Friday, May 6, a federal appeals court granted Florida’s request to reinstate portions of the state’s election laws, struck down by a district court judge who ruled the measures unconstitutional and discriminatory.
On May 1, 2021, the Republican-controlled state Senate approved SB 90 (pdf), which overhauled Florida election law ahead of the 2022 midterm elections and 2024 presidential election. Gov. Ron DeSantis signed the bill into law May 6, 2021, with immediate effect, strengthening voting rules in the state and establishing the nation’s first Office of Election Crimes and Security at the Department of State.
The law requires vote-by-mail ballot signatures to match the most recent signature on file to be counted. The measure also dictates that political parties and candidates cannot be shut out from observing the signature matching process.
