Politico is reporting that the Florida Democratic party has “lawyered up” as it has finally dawned on them that staffers who sent altered documents to voters in an effort to fix vote-by-mail ballots might have broken the law.
The Democrats are doing this all across the country. When they say “by any means necessary…” They literally mean it.
Both the Feds and state are investigating them. Are they in big trouble? Please comment below and let us know your thoughts.
The Florida Democratic Party was like “hmmmm, how to make this midterm get worse?”

After getting crushed in the 2018 midterms, the Florida Democratic Party is now playing defense after staffers sent altered state election documents to voters, a move state officials have asked federal prosecutors to investigate.
The issue arose after state party staff sent voters forms that are intended to fix vote-by-mail ballots that had been initially rejected. Those forms, which are official state documents, were sent with altered dates, leading the Florida Department of State to turn over the paperwork to several U.S. attorneys and request an inquiry into the “irregularities.”
After saying earlier in the week that the state officials were trying “divert attention” away from the Department of State, which is part of Gov. Rick Scott’s administration, the Democrats on Friday took a different approach: They lawyered up.
“Upon receiving notice of the allegations that the form was incorrect, FDP took immediate steps, including hiring an independent investigator to review the issues at hand,” attorney Mark Herron said in a statement provided by a party spokeswoman. “As soon as we know the results of the investigation we will advise you.”
Herron went to CNN to break the news Friday morning, one week after the vote-by-mail “cure affidavits” were sent to U.S. Attorneys Christopher P. Canova of the Northern District of Florida, Maria Chapa Lopez of the Middle District of Florida and Ariana Fajardo Orshan of the Southern District of Florida.
Information related to whose mail ballots were rejected is public information. It’s not uncommon for political parties or outside groups to use that information to reach out to voters who had a mail ballot rejected to encourage them to fix the issues. In most cases, the problem is because a voter did not sign the ballot. More
Who doctored the election docs and who gave the orders? Let’s get the search warrants and subpoenas started. Until these clowns start going to prison, the destruction of our elections will continue on.
We also need to volunteer as election workers. I know it’s tough because conservatives have jobs and lives, but it’s the only thing that will really work.
Democrats in Florida have also hired an outside investigator to discover which staffers altered the forms:
