Florida Ballots

With the election only 29 days away, the sunshine state has become a political battleground as both candidates try to swing the key state in their favor.  But with many voters resorting to mail-in-ballots, fraud is inevitable.

A registered Democrat in Florida was arrested for allegedly requesting a mail-in-ballot for his wife, according to a local news report Friday via the Daily Caller.

But, the catch?

His wife has been dead for two years.

Larry Wiggins, 62, was charged with a 3rd-degree felony after authorities were alerted that the signature on his wife’s ballot request did not match the signature on her previous registration documents, according to WFLA.

Upon investigation, authorities discovered that his spouse was deceased.

Wiggins insisted he was simply testing the accuracy of the Florida voter system, the local outlet reported.

“I heard so much about ballots being sent in and people just having found them in different places,” Wiggins told WFLA. “I feel like I haven’t done anything wrong.

“I said well, let me just send it in and see what’s going to happen to see if they’re actually going to send a ballot for her to vote,” he continued.

Wiggins said that he never intended to vote twice and denied that he forged his late wife’s signature.

The 62-year-old was apprehended and charged in Manatee County, Florida, where over 500 mail-in votes are being processed each day, according to Michael Bennett, the supervisor of elections.

Wiggins was released on a $1,500 bond, according to the Daily Caller.

    “Wiggins said that he never intended to vote twice and denied that he forged his late wife’s signature.”
    Seriously? The form just signed itself?
    We need much stiffer sentences for attempted voter fraud.
    As a side note, Leo, I was THIS close to writing a letter to FOX a few months ago because I couldn’t take your defending the indefensible anymore. I hung on a little longer and watched your transformation from an angry democrat to a happy Trump supporter. Congratulations and welcome aboard.

    Why is my comment being moderated? No “bad” words.

    He is guilty, period. He deserves and needs to be treated like the criminal he is. You don’t go up to a teller and demand all the cash in her drawer unless you are trying to rob the teller. Same with the ballot. Wrong is wrong. Crime is crime. One living person, one vote. I check to make sure my spouse ISN’T registered every year, along with my mother since they have both passed. I don’t TRY to register either of them because I have no desire to steal some one else’s vote by making it invalid.

Obtained Emails on Election Night Heighten Georgia’s Mysterious Ballot-Counting

Just the News has obtained internal emails from election workers in Georgia’s Fulton County has increased confusion and mystery regarding the November presidential elections. As a reminder, Just the News writes, “Uncertainty arose regarding the ballot processing operation at Fulton County’s State Farm Arena on and after Election Night, when ballot-scanning apparently continued even after most election workers had reportedly been sent home.”

Affidavits from Election Night poll workers state they were directed by officials to stop working around 10:30 pm on November 3rd, and return at 8:30 am the next day. Multiple local and national media outlets reported absentee ballot counting stopped around 10:30 pm and cited county spokeswoman Regina Waller.

In truth, counting at the State Farm Arena continued past 10:30 pm. Waller herself told JTN in December that contrary to media reports, many citing her, that she had “stated to all media…that although several workers were released to go home, a small team remained behind to assist with scanning ballots.”

Through an open records request, JTN obtained a few suspect emails, in which Waller does in fact state counting ended at around 10:30 pm. The email, timestamped at 10:22 pm on Nov. 3, addressed to several county officials as well as State Farm Arena spokesman Garin Narain stated, “the workers in the Absentee Ballot Processing area will get started again at 8 am tomorrow.”

When reached for comment via email, Waller only stated the email “was in response to a question received asking when all workers would return” but did not respond to a request to see the original email to which she was responding. So then why did she keep a “small” team behind?

Another email from Fulton County Interagency Affairs Manager Fran Phillips-Calhoun timestamped at 11:15 pm that same night, almost an hour after Waller said counting stopped, Phillips-Calhoun’s email may suggest otherwise. “FYI-[the Secretary of State’s office] just sort of threw the team under the bus stating that ‘we had a great day, but we decided to throw in the towel for the night even though the public is waiting…’ on the results.”

Phillips-Calhoun’s email was sent to Waller and several other county staffers. Phillips-Calhoun did not respond to requests for comment, nor did the message specify which statement from the Secretary of State’s office she was referring to.

Pro-Trump super PAC rebrands to ‘stop Joe’s corruption, socialist agenda, liberalism’

It’s new name? Committee to Defeat the President.

A super PAC that heavily supported President Trump during the 2020 presidential campaign is changing its direction to focus on the new administration. 

The Committee to Defend the President officially rebranded itself on Wednesday as Joe Biden takes office. Its mission is now aimed at taking down the incoming democrat

It’s new name? Committee to Defeat the President. 

During the 2020 campaign cycle, the PAC reportedly raised more than $16 million to support Trump and his “America First policy agenda, BizPacReview reports. The group will now focus on “undermining” Biden’s agenda. 

“NEW NAME. SAME MISSION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT & STOP JOE’s Corruption…Socialist Agenda…Liberalism,” the website says. 

The committee told Fox News it plans to match its 2020 fundraising during the 2022 election cycle, and pledges a seven-figure investment “to expose the Biden-Harris administration and other Democrats for their left-wing politics.” 

The group will push new ads, opposition research, social media engagement, and “other innovative tactics.” 

The PAC’s “new mission is to save Americans from the radical, dangerous policies of the Biden-Harris administration,” Ted Harvey, the group’s chairman, said. 

“Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will work around the clock to reverse the unprecedented progress of the Trump presidency,” Harvey added. 

“From day one, we simply cannot let that happen. It is our patriotic duty to work around the clock and stop them – before the damage done to America becomes irreversible,” he said. 

But, this isn’t the first time the PAC has switched gears. 

Founded in 2013, it was originally called the Stop Hillary Pac, according to BizPacReview.
