Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody Orders Investigation Into Mike Bloomberg’s Felon Voting Bribery Scheme
Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody has ordered an investigation into what appears to be a bribery voting scheme organized by Democrat oligarch Mike Bloomberg. Moody ordered the investigation after Governor Ron DeSantis requested it, following Congressman Matt Gaetz in questioning the legality of his felon voting scheme.

Bloomberg is personally paying off the outstanding fines of black and Hispanic felons in order to restore their voting rights in Florida before the November election. Florida prevents felons with outstanding fines from voting, and those responsible for criminal acts are nominally supposed to pay the fines incurred from their crimes- not an out-of-state billionaire.
Bloomberg is also nakedly racially discriminating in his felon voting scheme, reserving the fine repayment for black and Hispanic felons, only.
In her letter on the matter, AG Moody requests that the Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigate the scheme, as well as the FBI(as if they’d actually do anything.)
The Democrat oligarch could potentially face felony charges pertaining to obstruction of justice for paying fines that convicted felons are supposed to be responsible for, and election fraud for what seems to be bribing nominally eligible voters to tacitly support the Democrat candidate. The bribery charges could potentially make Bloomberg liable for federal criminal charges.
Florida passed a felon re-enfranchisement referendum in 2018, changing previous state law that barred felons from voting. They still have to pay off outstanding fines to utilize the right. The swing state has been trending red, but it remains a competitive must-win state for President Trump in November.
