We’re now inside one week from the most critical election in our lifetime, and with each day that passes more reports of voter fraud come to light in key swing states.
Today brought another report from Florida, which is considered a “must win” state for the election.
Here’s the full story from Hot Air:
We’ve been hearing all manner of reports and analysis of early voting in this election. One recent story said that early voting in Florida’s black community was low, which would be bad for Hillary Clinton. But Florida is a swing state, and another report claims that early swing state voting is going Clinton’s way. The truth (at least in general) may wind up being somewhere between the two, but there’s one group of people who the early voting is decidedly not going well for at all. Those would be the folks who were victims of voter fraud and had their absentee ballots stolen, forged and turned in by someone else. (Orlando Sentinel)
By mid-October, Susan Halperin became concerned that she and her husband hadn’t received their absentee ballots in the mail.
So Lawrence Halperin called the Seminole County Supervisor of Elections Office to find out what was going on. He was stunned to learn their ballots had already been cast. Someone had stolen the Halperins’ ballots, faked their signatures and voted.
“He was just floored,” said Susan Halperin, a registered Democrat. “To think that someone would actually steal my ballot and fill it out is creepy.”
The Halperins, who live in the Spring Valley neighborhood of Altamonte Springs just south of State Road 436, weren’t the only victims. Supervisor of Elections Mike Ertel said they were among five voters in three homes in Spring Valley whose absentee ballots were stolen and then fraudulently submitted with votes cast by someone else.
The interviews with the victims of this scheme were both infuriating and almost charming at the same time. It should be a matter of outrage for anyone that people’s ballots are being stolen, forged and submitted. But at the same time, my jaw dropped a bit when I read that one of the victims really hoped that, “it’s just a prank, maybe some teenager.” That’s a nice thought which makes it sound more harmless than it is, but my confidence in such an explanation is understandably low. It’s true that teens get up to all sorts of pranks but this type of high risk election fraud which won’t result in a situation where they get to see their victims’ annoyance at the prank just doesn’t pass the smell test. This has the signs of deliberate tampering.
