PINELLAS COUNTY SUPERVISOR OF ELECTIONS THREATENS TO CHARGE ELECTION INTEGRITY ADVOCATE CRIMINALLY OVER THE RIGHT TO CHALLENGE VOTER FRAUD
How do corrupt election officials conceal their neglect of duty and corrupt practices?
QUESTION: What happens when you find tens of thousands of outdated and inaccurate names and addresses on the voter rolls and you try to hold the Supervisors of Elections accountable?
ANSWER: They threaten to charge you with a misdemeanor charge for each and every challenge that you make.
The following is my reply to their threats.
In my reply, I referenced that my concerns with the voter rolls and list maintenance were not frivolous and were also held by many informed people. Including the Director of the Florida Election Crimes Unit Pete Antonacci.
After the “Election Crimes Farce” in Broward County, Chris Nelson a citizen journalist asked the newly appointed head of the Election Crimes Unit a few questions about the Gold Standard of Elections.
Mr. Smith can you explain to me how hundreds of voters using an address that does not conform to the definition of what a "Legal Residential Address" is, can be legally registered to vote?
According to Florida Statute 98.045 Administration of voter registration.
(1) ELIGIBILITY OF APPLICANT.—The supervisor must ensure that any eligible applicant for voter registration is registered to vote and that each application for voter registration is processed in accordance with law. The supervisor shall determine whether a voter registration applicant is ineligible based on any of the following: Florida Statute 98.045 (1)(h) The applicant has provided an address of legal residence that is not his or her legal residence.
The statute above is quite clear. It states that "the supervisor SHALL determine whether a voter registration applicant is ineligible based on ANY of the following" The fact that these individuals are using an address that by the very definition of Florida Statutes is prima facia evidence that the supervisor has violated Florida Statute 98.045. Can you honestly show me how this is not a violation of Florida Election Statutes by the supervisor of elections? The individual challenges that I have made are a small fraction of the voter roll issues that we have identified. There seems to be a real problem in Pinellas County. It certainly is not frivolous voter challenges.
Retaining thousands of potentially illegitimate registrations on Florida voter lists substantially harms the integrity of elections and dilutes or even cancels the votes of validly registered citizens. Removing ineligible voters from this state's registration list is paramount if Florida takes seriously its obligation to ensure fair and honest elections.
What is an “Address of Legal Residence” ?
97.021 Definitions.—For the purposes of this code, except where the context clearly indicates otherwise, the term:
(3) “Address of legal residence” means the legal residential address of the elector and includes all information necessary to differentiate one residence from another, including, but not limited to, a distinguishing apartment, suite, lot, room, or dormitory room number or other identifier.
What are the responsibilities of Supervisors of Elections related to the administration of the voter rolls?
98.045 Administration of voter registration.—
(1) ELIGIBILITY OF APPLICANT.—The supervisor must ensure that any eligible applicant for voter registration is registered to vote and that each application for voter registration is processed in accordance with law.
The supervisor SHALL determine whether a voter registration applicant is ineligible based on ANY of the following:
(a) The failure to complete a voter registration application as specified in s. 97.053.
(b) The applicant is deceased.
(c) The applicant has been convicted of a felony for which his or her voting rights have not been restored.
(d) The applicant has been adjudicated mentally incapacitated with respect to the right to vote and such right has not been restored.
(e) The applicant does not meet the age requirement pursuant to s. 97.041.
(f) The applicant is not a United States citizen.
(g) The applicant is a fictitious person.
(h) The applicant has provided an address of legal residence that is not his or her legal residence.
What are the laws regarding public records access and retention?
98.045 (3) PUBLIC RECORDS ACCESS AND RETENTION.—Each supervisor shall maintain for at least 2 years, and make available for public inspection and copying, all records concerning implementation of registration list maintenance programs and activities conducted pursuant to ss. 98.065 and 98.075. The records must include lists of the name and address of each person to whom a notice was sent and information as to whether each such person responded to the mailing, but may not include any information that is confidential or exempt from public records requirements under this code.
When the recent redistricting occurred, every SOE sent out new "Voter Information Cards" to electors, based on the condition of the data contained within the voter rolls many of these "Voter Information Cards" were returned as undeliverable to the Supervisor of Elections offices. These "Voter information Cards" were sent out using first class mail with the following special service requested: TEMP-RETURN SERVICE REQUESTED. This special service request means that if there was a change of address on file with the USPS the "Voter Information Cards" would be forwarded and any "Voter Information Cards" that were sent to "Undeliverable" addresses would be returned to the SOE office. The return of these "Returned as Undeliverable" mailings to electors by the SOE would then "trigger" a list maintenance event as required by Florida Statutes.
Want to understand why they want to exempt voter roll list maintenance from Public Records Viewing?
98.065 Registration list maintenance programs.—
(1) The supervisor must conduct a general registration list maintenance program to protect the integrity of the electoral process by ensuring the maintenance of accurate and current voter registration records in the statewide voter registration system. The program must be uniform, nondiscriminatory, and in compliance with the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the National Voter Registration Act of 1993, and the Help America Vote Act of 2002. As used in this subsection, the term “nondiscriminatory” applies to and includes persons with disabilities.
THIS IS CLEARLY NOT HAPPENING – IF THIS WAS HAPPENING THERE WOULD BE LITTLE TO NO "VOTER INFORMATION CARDS" or "VOTE BY MAIL BALLOTS" BEING RETURNED AS UNDELIVERABLE.
WHAT HAPPENED TO ALL THE UNDELIVERABLE VOTER INFORMATION CARDS? VOTE BY MAIL BALLOTS?
Why isn’t the Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections maintaining the voter rolls according to Florida Election Statutes?
THE RESULTS OF THIS LIST MAINTENANCE IS REQUIRED TO BE PROVIDED BY FLORIDA STATUTES.
(5)(a) If the supervisor receives change-of-address information pursuant to the activities conducted in subsection (2), from jury notices signed by the voter and returned to the courts, from the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, or from other sources which indicates that a registered voter’s legal residence might have changed to another location within the state, the supervisor must change the registration records to reflect the new address and must send the voter an address change notice as provided in s. 98.0655(2).
THIS IS NOT HAPPENING. THE VOTER INFORMATION CARDS AND VOTE-BY-MAIL BALLOTS SHOULD BE RETURNED AS UNDELIVERABLE AND TRIGGER THE SOE VERIFICATION PROCESS.
WHY IS IT NOT? IT’S A CRIME UNDER FLORIDA STATUTES AS ANY VIOLATION OF THE FLORIDA ELECTION CODE IS A CRIME.
SOE OFFICES ARE CERTIFYING UNDER OATH THAT THIS WAS COMPLETED. THIS IS EVIDENCED AS NOT BEING COMPLETED BY THE CURRENT STATE OF THE FLORIDA VOTER ROLLS. THIS IS ALSO EVIDENCED BY THE FACT THAT SO MANY VOTER ID CARDS AND VOTE-BY-MAIL BALLOTS ARE BEING OR SHOULD BE RETURNED AS UNDELIVERABLE TO THE SOE OFFICES. THEN THE REQUIRED MANAGEMENT / MAINT SHOULD BE FOLLOWED. THEY ARE NOT.
(b) If, based on the certification provided pursuant to paragraph (a), the department determines that a supervisor has not conducted the list maintenance activities required by this section, the department shall conduct the appropriate list maintenance activities for that county. Failure to conduct list maintenance activities as required in this section constitutes a violation of s. 104.051.
104.051 Violations; neglect of duty; corrupt practices.—
(1) Any official who willfully violates any of the provisions of this election code shall be excluded from the polls. Any election official who is excluded shall be replaced as provided in this code.
(2) Any official who willfully refuses or willfully neglects to perform his or her duties as prescribed by this election code is guilty of a misdemeanor of the first degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083.
(3) Any official who performs his or her duty as prescribed by this election code fraudulently or corruptly is guilty of a felony of the third degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084.
(4) Any supervisor, deputy supervisor, or election employee who attempts to influence or interfere with any elector voting a ballot commits a felony of the third degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084.
(5) Any supervisor who willfully violates any provision of the Florida Election Code is, upon a finding of such violation by a court of competent jurisdiction, prohibited from receiving the special qualification salary pursuant to s. 145.09(3) for a period of 24 months, dating from the time of the violation.
SO MANY CRIMES SO LITTLE TIME
The technology exists for proper list maintenance and they are required to do it. Why are they refusing to follow the law? State Law and Federal Law is quite clear.
Their list maintenance practices are a violation of Florida Election Statutes and of Federal Election Law under HAVA
See 52 U.S.C. § 21083(a)(1)(A).
Maintain here means accurate, in good condition and repair. In 2002, Congress enacted HAVA, which was in part created "to ensure that voter registration records in the State are accurate and updated regularly." 52 U.S.C. § 21083(a)(4). Additionally, under HAVA, the State "shall remove the names of ineligible voters from the computerized list in accordance with State law.” 52 U.S.C. § 21083(a)(2)(A)(iii).
WHY DID THE SENATE PASS A BILL TO LEGALIZE ELECTION FRAUD WRITTEN BY LOBBYISTS AND ATTORNEYS FOR DOMINION, RUNBECK AND ES&S?
BECAUSE “THE ELECTION FRAUD MAFIA”, CORD BYRD, AND RON DESANTIS NEEDED THEM TO.
The big question now is will the Florida House vote in lock step to legalize the “FLORIDA ELECTION FRAUD LEGALIZATION ACTS”?
