Ron DeSantis announces his Office of Election Crimes and Security has arrested the first batch of 20 people for voter fraud in Florida
· Aug 19, 2022 ·

While many are complaining about voter fraud and making wild accusations, Florida's Ron DeSantis is actually doing something about illegal voting.

Yesterday, the governor announced his Office of Election Crimes and Security is charging 20 individuals across the state with voter fraud.

The state of Florida has charged and is in the process of arresting 20 individuals across the state for voter fraud.

The majority of these people illegally voted in Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade, although there are others in other parts of the state.

These places with voter fraud are, surprise, primarily the leftist-run areas of Florida.

They are disqualified from voting because they've been convicted of either murder or sexual assault and they do not have the right to vote.

This is a definite move in the right direction.

Democrat cities and counties are allowing felons to illegally vote, and if it wasn't for these efforts by DeSantis the fraud would continue and would grow.

Here's more from the AP:

Preexisting state law had allowed the governor to appoint officers to investigate violations of election law but did not require him to do so.

Peter Antonacci, a former Broward County Supervisor of Elections tapped by DeSantis to lead the election police unit, said more voter fraud charges were coming. Antonacci said he is "certain" there were illegal votes cast in a recent Broward County congressional election decided by five votes. He provided no additional details.

"You'll see more of these actions, and you'll see more of these actions until the people who are behind it quit promoting it and the people that want to take risks know that there is a downside risk to voting when you're not eligible to vote," he said.

DeSantis also defended the plan from a reporter who asked if this executive action was necessary.

It's good to see that at least one leader is taking the business of securing elections seriously.
