Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis Moving to Ban Universal Mail-in Voting in Election Integrity

Mail-in voting is susceptible to fraud.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced a new election integrity reform package to safeguard his state’s elections on Friday. The set of reforms would do away with unsolicited mail-in voting, crack down on insecure ballot drop boxes, and ban ballot harvesting in Florida.

DeSantis touted Florida’s success in reporting its 2020 election results as an argument for enforcing a defined set of rules and standardized regulations surrounding election practices.

Florida had the most transparent and efficient election anywhere in the country,” DeSantis said. “Other states took days, weeks, and even months to count their votes. And yet Florida, by midnight on election night, we had 99% reporting and 11 million votes counted, tabulated, and put out to the public.”

Florida’s legislature had moved to reform the state’s election practices in the interests of reporting brevity and election integrity following the disputed 2000 presidential election. The results of Florida’s presidential election were available and clear on election night in November, with other states implementing mass-in voting for the first time struggling to report results for several days or even weeks.

DeSantis’ proposal wouldn’t eliminate mail-in voting in Florida. It would merely require every voter who wishes to vote by mail to request a mail-in ballot every election, as opposed to mailing millions of ballots without verifying addresses and identities.

Under the package, only someone’s family member could drop off their ballot, in a move designed to prevent suspect political front groups from “harvesting” ballots. This would establish a clear chain of custody from the voter to the state without unnecessary third parties.

The comprehensive package would also require counties and municipalities to make election results public and transparent in timely fashion.

This package should be copied by every governor in the United States in order to safeguard elections at every level of government.

Midterms 2022

Laura Loomer Announces 2022 Congressional Campaign

Loomer will run for Congress in 2022.

Published

on

Former Big League Politics investigative journalist and social media personality Laura Loomer announced her 2022 congressional campaign on Wednesday, speaking at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida. Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar and longtime Donald Trump advisor Roger Stone were present at Loomer’s campaign announcement.

Loomer ran in 2020 in Florida’s 21st Congressional district, which contains President Trump’s world famous Mar-a-Lago resort which is now his permanent address. With an upcoming congressional redistricting in Florida, Loomer clarified that she’s waiting for the final results of the redistricting measure before running for a specific district. The parameters of congressional districts in Florida are yet to be determined. Florida stands to gain two congressional seats from the 2020 census, in a testament to the state’s population growth, conservative governance, and embrace of pro-middle class policies.

Loomer received 40% of the vote in her 2020 challenge against Democrat Lois Frankel, a strong performance in the D +9 21st district. If Republicans build momentum as the opposition party coming into the midterms, Loomer’s second shot at Congress could easily lead to a victory.

Loomer is one of the most censored individuals on the internet, having been banned from Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube a short time after the first wave of social media censorship purges targeted Milo Yiannopoulos and Alex Jones. Twitter refused to allow Loomer a voice on the platform as the Republican nominee for Congress in her district in 2020, in a move that arguably amounts to an in-kind campaign contribution to the Democrat she was facing. Loomer predicted that President Trump would ultimately be purged from Big Tech monopoly platforms in 2018, a prediction which proved accurate.

Loomer’s message may rest on the growing strength of alternative social media platforms. Having previously received Donald Trump’s endorsement, she could be the next upcoming Trump Republican to enter the halls of Congress.
