Florida AG wants Michael Bloomberg investigated for election law violations

September 24, 2020

Somehow I missed this story but apparently Michael Bloomberg hatched a scheme to raise money to pay off the debts of felons so that they would be eligible to vote in Florida.

Raising money to help felons who have done their time pay of their debts so that they can get a new chance in life might be a decent cause, however if you are an elected official and your goal is to help them gain the right to vote you can see where there could be a problem. It is akin to paying them for their votes.

Now the Florida Attorney General is asking for an investigation into Michael Bloomberg for election law violations, here is more:

Florida’s attorney general asked state and federal law enforcement on Wednesday to investigate possible election law violations after billionaire and former Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg helped raise more than $16 million for Florida felons to pay their debts so they can vote in the presidential election.

Attorney General Ashley Moody sent letters to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the FBI saying that further investigation is warranted. Gov. Ron DeSantis had asked Moody to review allegations that Bloomberg and the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition had violated the law by offering incentives for voting. DeSantis and Moody are both Republicans.

“I have instructed the Statewide Prosecutor to work with law enforcement and any Statewide Grand Jury that the Governor may call,” Moody said in a written statement.

This certainly looks like a clear cut violation to me and while Michael Bloomberg claims the organization is not looking at the party affiliations of the felons it is pretty obvious the hope is they will remember which party the man that paid their debts belongs to and vote accordingly. Florida is always a battleground state and it is obvious the New York Democrat was trying to sway the election.

      I agree, between Florida is probably going to be the key. It is hard to see Trump winning without the state. There is also Texas, the Democrats have been working hard to turn that state blue and if that ever happens there is no way a Republican can ever win again.
