This past week, three courts rolled back common sense voter ID requirements while allegations of vote fraud continue to surface in advance of November’s Presidential Election. The most recent example is occurring in the battleground state of Florida.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is reviewing allegations that fraudulent mail-in ballot requests have been submitted in Palm Beach County for the upcoming primaries, agency spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger said Friday.
County Commissioner Priscilla Taylor, who is running for re-election, is accusing her opponent, former State Rep. Mack Bernard, of submitting false requests for mail-in ballots. In Florida, voters can ask to submit their ballots by mail, rather than voting in person.
Unfortunately Florida has a long history of such problems.
Ballot brokering has been an ongoing issue in Miami-Dade County. For a fee, operatives known in Spanish as "boleteros," canvass neighborhoods to collect absentee ballots. Some have crossed the line by filling out the ballots for voters.
Fraud issues have plagued the primaries and many other elections this year, and yet, the left and media continues to willfully ignore it. Fraudsters continue to get more creative in their methods which makes the case not only for Voter ID laws but also indicates a need for an updated process for absentee balloting. In the greatest democracy in the world, election integrity should never be in question or left to chance.
