Voter Fraud Cases In Florida Are Now Grabbing Some Attention

For something that liberals claim almost never happens, voter fraud is popping up in the news a lot in Florida lately.

Here are a few examples from the past few days.

The Associated Press reported on Thursday that two men from The Villages, Charles Barnes and Jay Ketcik, admitted to casting more than one ballot in the 2020 election.

Both men accepted State Attorney William Gladson’s offer of entering a pre-trial intervention program with prosecution deferred, provided they each complete 50 hours of community service and attend a three-month civics course, earning at least a C.

Barnes, who is not a member of a political party, and Ketcik, a Republican, each faced up to five years in prison after being charged with a third-degree felony. Both men were suspected of having voted twice, once in Florida and once in their respective home states. Barnes is from Connecticut, while Ketcik is from Michigan.  

Meanwhile, according to Orlando media, prosecutors cut a similar deal with Sheryle Jack of Melbourne Beach, who also recently admitted to voting twice in 2020. Jack, a Democrat, forged her son’s mail-in ballot, although he had voted in Washington state, where he resides.

Jack also faced five years in prison, but instead will have the charges dropped if she performs 50 hours of community service, works at a lawful occupation, and avoids any future arrest for a year.

WUFT reported earlier this month that at least 10 former jail inmates in Alachua County were charged with voter fraud. It seems elections officials under county Elections Supervisor Kim Barton, a Democrat, conducted a voter-registration drive in the county jail.

Ultimately, a Florida Department of Law Enforcement probe found that the 10 inmates, all felons, registered to vote, and even voted, in 2020, even though they were not eligible. Under Florida law, former felons can vote under certain conditions. WUFT reported that Barton and her staff were cleared of wrongdoing, as investigators focused on the inmates. 

Florida’s Secretary of State Laurel Lee recently reported that her office referred 75 cases of potential illegal voting or election fraud to law enforcement related to the 2020 election.

That seems like a lot of activity for an event that, as most liberals will tell you, almost never happens.
