South Florida investigators are looking into a scheme to register dead people as Democrats. How unusual. But the fact that it was in Broward County. Not so unusual. The authorities say that 51 applications came from one person in Columbiana, South Carolina, all with identical handwriting. No attempt was made to either vote or request any absentee ballots, and it was caught early.
The case was turned over to the Broward State Attorney’s office. State attorney’s office spokeswoman Paula McMahon said, “We cannot comment on an ongoing, active criminal investigation.” The applications were sent in 19 different envelopes.
Of the 51 applications, officials were able to verify that 31 of the people were dead. The remaining 20 applications could not be identified by name and birthdate only. Five applications were for people already registered to vote.
Broward Elections Supervisor Pete Antonacci says this was an “organized effort.”
“This is an organized effort by someone who knew a little bit about Florida law but not a lot and had a scheme to either undermine the Florida registration system with fake voters or intended to vote 50 times,” Antonacci told the South Florida SunSentinel.
Officials also stated that several spaces on the applications were left blank, such as drivers license and social security number sections.
According to Antonacci, there is a time difference in between when someone dies and the election officials are notified, and someone took advantage of that.
“The system is based on the honor system, and the honor system is supposedly bolstered by the fact that if you lie on one of these applications, it’s a crime,” Antonacci said. “With determination, you can muscle your way in.”
Broward State Attorney Mike Satz released the standard statement that all voter fraud charges is a serious crime.
“We take any allegation of voter fraud very seriously because it affects our very democracy. Anyone who has information regarding any attempt to commit the crime of voter fraud should report it to the Broward Supervisor of Elections and the Broward State Attorney’s Office so it can be thoroughly investigated.”
You can expect the Democrats to go all out in trying to manufacture votes.
