WHITAKER TIME?: Federal Prosecutors Asked To Investigate Florida Democrats
Federal prosecutors have reportedly been asked to step in and investigate some of the numerous claims of vote fraud in the Florida 2018 election, as the highly disputed Palm Beach County recount process drags on until at least November 20. Could acting attorney general Matthew Whitaker now step in?
Blank ballots recently turned up in a box at the Fort Lauderdale airport, according to Sheriff Scott Israel’s Broward County sheriff’s office, which shut down the airport in response to a suspicious package threat that turned out to not be a bomb.

Politico reported Wednesday: “The Florida Department of State last week asked federal prosecutors to investigate dates that were changed on official state election documents, the first voting “irregularities” it has flagged in the wake of the 2018 elections.
The concerns, which the department says can be tied to the Florida Democratic Party, center around date changes on forms used to fix vote-by-mail ballots sent with incorrect or missing information. Known as “cure affidavits,” those documents used to fix mail ballots were due no later than 5 p.m. on Nov. 5 — the day before the election. But affidavits released on Tuesday by the DOS show that documents from four different counties said the ballots could be returned by 5 p.m. on Thursday, which is not accurate.
Audio of a Florida Democratic Party caller leaving a voicemail message asking a Palm Beach County voter to fix their vote by mail ballot after Election Day, which is not allowed, was also sent to POLITICO separately. It was not part of the information turned over to federal prosecutors…
The information was sent on Nov. 9 by Bradley McVay, DOS’ interim general counsel, who asked that the altered dates be investigated.
“Altering a form in a manner that provides the incorrect date for a voter to cure a defect … imposes a burden on the voter significant enough to frustrate the voter’s ability to vote,” McVay wrote in a letter that was sent Nov. 9 and released publicly on Tuesday. The letter was 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 in the Southern District of Florida.”

This could be seen as a step in the right direction for Republicans hoping to stop Overtime period voting fraud. The Georgia Republicans countersued their Democrat counterparts Wednesday to try to stop Peach State recounts in Florida’s neighbor, where Brian Kemp has been clearly elected Governor.
Either way, the process is dragging on, and leading to a whole lot of confusion for American citizens in real time.
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.
