Gov. DeSantis (R-FL) brags about voter fraud arrests even though most arrested received voter ID cards from the state. In April of 2022, DeSantis signed a bill into law that creates a unique police force in Florida that focuses solely on voter fraud and other election crimes.
“Some of these groups, you wonder where their values are. I mean, you're relying on convicted rapists to get what you want at the polls. No, thank you on that one. I mean, I think that that's wrong. So, our view is, we want all voters who are lawful to vote to be able to vote, but if someone votes you illegally, they could have canceled your vote out. How do you, how do you feel about that they could cancel out the vote of some World War II veteran, who fought you know, to preserve our freedoms and so it Is important that we're upholding the law.”
