With the election Overtime period in the Deep South coming to an end — and Republicans protecting their victories in Georgia and Florida — the details of the vote-finding madness are still coming to light. At least one investigation might already be taking shape. Florida officials have referred swamp state Democrats to federal prosecutors to look into evidence of an incorrect mail-in form.
If federal prosecutors accept the challenge, that would put the investigation of the Florida Democrats under the jurisdiction of acting attorney general Matthew Whitaker. The Florida Democratic Party, which nominated Andrew Gillum for governor, is now the subject of massive public scrutiny all over America.
After saying earlier in the week that the State officials were trying “divert attention” away from the Department of State, which is part of Gov. Rick Scott’s administration, the Democrats on Friday took a different approach: They 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 in a statement provided by a party spokeswoman. “As soon as we know the results of the investigation we will advise you.”
Herron went to CNN to break the news Friday morning, one week after the vote-by-mail “cure affidavits” were sent to U.S. Attorneys Christopher P. Canova of the Northern District of Florida, Maria Chapa Lopez of the Middle District of Florida and Ariana Fajardo Orshan of the Southern District of Florida.
Information related to whose mail ballots were rejected is public information. It’s not uncommon for political parties or outside groups to use that information to reach out to voters who had a mail ballot rejected to encourage them to fix the issues. In most cases, the problem is because a voter did not sign the ballot.
To cure a mail-in ballot, voters needed to submit an affidavit on Nov. 5, the day before Election Day. But the altered version changed the date to Nov. 8, the deadline to cure issues with provisional ballots. It’s unclear if any voters availed themselves of the altered affidavit produced by party operatives.
Politico passage ends
There could be a lot of material in any investigation into Florida Democrats — besides just that one incorrect form. There were, after all, boxes of ballots turning up, including a box of blank ballots intercepted at the Fort Lauderdale airport, flagged by an Avis employee.
The Broward County teacher who allegedly found a container labelled “Provisional Ballots” after Election Day did not choose to tell the cops or federal law enforcement right away. Rather, she called up Andrew Gillum’s friend in the Florida state legislature.
Lakeisha Sorey, the teacher who found the “Provisional Ballots” box, called Andrew Gillum’s friend Shevrin Jones for assistance during the emergency. How convenient!
Here is Andrew Gillum praising Shevrin Jones in 2017, at the beginning of Gillum’s long-shot bid to become governor.
Here is Gillum with Shevrin Jones literally on Election Day:
Texas Software Billionaire Charged in Largest Tax Fraud Indictment in US History
He’s accused of hiding $2 billion from taxes.
A Texas software billionaire is being charged with tax evasion in a case federal prosecutors are describing as the largest incidence of tax fraud in American history.
79-year old Robert Brockman was charged in a 39-count indictment that includes charges of money laundering, conspiracy, wire fraud, and tax evasion, with an indictment being unsealed by the US Attorney for the District of San Francisco on Thursday.
Brockman is the CEO of the Reynolds & Reynolds Company, which develops software for automotive companies. He’s being accused of hiding more than $2 billion in capital gains from the IRS, utilizing a complex scheme of companies and trusts registered in notorious Caribbean tax havens such as the British Virgin Islands to conceal his wealth.
Brockman is alleged to have intentionally destroyed electronic devices, documents and other pieces of evidence that would reveal the nature of his tax avoidance system in the unsealed indictment. He was released from jail custody on a $1 million bond Thursday, and has plead not guilty to the charges.
David Anderson, a San Francisco federal prosecutor, described the magnitude of Brockman’s alleged tax cheating setup at a press conference announcing the charges on Thursday. “The allegation of a $2 billion tax fraud is the largest-ever tax charge against an individual in the United States,” he said.
The evidence that led to the indictment of Brockman was largely obtained from another billionaire, Robert Smith. Smith agreed to a non-prosecution with federal authorities earlier this month for tax evasion of his own, providing information on tax avoidance schemes utilized by the ultra-wealthy.
Greed of this nature is absolutely sickening, if the allegations made in the indictment are legitimate. The IRS should relentlessly pursue billionaires such as Brockman and Smith, making their tax compliance the priority over “average” Americans.
