Florida Capital Star: Are election volunteers “helping” themselves to others’ votes?

Sometimes vote fraud happens from a distance (absentee or mailed ballots) and sometimes it’s up-close and personal. In Florida’s Miami-Dade County, the State Attorney is looking into reports of a large up-tick in volunteers from campaigns and city government “helping” the elderly or disabled to vote. In other parts of Florida, only 1 percent of voters need assistance, but in Miami-Dade that number is above 10 percent. Two-thirds of the helpers were city or campaign workers – were they assisting with votes or manipulating them?

Von Spakovsky: Media Attacks Florida’s Governor for Proposing to Go After Election Crimes

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has a good idea with his budget proposal to create an “election crimes agency” that would “investigate election crimes and irregularities and make referrals for further legal action directly to a statewide prosecutor.” Florida should implement it, and other states should follow.

How Florida Deals with COVID — Treating People Like Adults

Florida has this COVID situation figured out. As we’ve known for quite some time, COVID in one form or another is here to stay, kind of like colds and flus, so we better learn to live with it. Mandates and lockdowns won’t work for the next 100 decades. Florida treats adults like, well, adults. If you’re vulnerable take precautions. If you want to get vaccinated, do it. If you don’t, any risk is yours. Just like everything else in life. In short, be responsible for yourself and your own. Just the way it should be.
