No fraud, it was mid-level staffers. Update to this story.
In response to increasingly credible accusations of election fraud in Florida, the state’s Democrat Party has reportedly lawyered up, according to a report published Friday. […]
The party specifically sent modified “cure affidavit” forms showing a deadline of Nov. 8, three days beyond the state’s actual absentee ballot deadline.
An unnamed Democrat official in Palm Beach County admitted to the Daily News that the intention had been to have voters amend their absentee ballots, even after the deadline, with the hope that a judge would ultimately rule in favor of allowing such ballots to be included in a future recount.[…]
Now fast forward to Friday, when the FDP responded to the Daily News’ report by issuing a statement saying that it’d basically 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. “As soon as we know the results of the investigation we will advise you.”
The so-called “investigator” is tasked with identifying who specifically within the party modified the inaccurate form sent to voters. The party claims the perpetrator was not someone in a position of leadership but rather a young, out-of-control whippersnapper.
“It was mid-level and it was a bunch of go-getters and young people who wanted to make a difference and didn’t realize this is a major political party and this is not how you get things done,” FDP vice chair Alan Clendenin said in an interview.
