Rep. Matt Gaetz calls for 'vote buying' criminal probe into Mike Bloomberg for paying off $20M in debt for 31,000 Florida felons so that they can cast ballots in November
[Daily Mail, where America gets its news]
  • Rep. Matt Gaetz called on Florida's attorney general to investigate the tactic

  • Mike Bloomberg paid off $20M in debt for 31,000 felons in Florida so they can vote

  • The move comes just days after Florida Gov Ron DeSantis won a court victory to keep felons from voting until they've paid off fines, restitution and court fees

  • Other donors include John Legend, LeBron James, Michael Jordan, MTV, Comedy Central, VH1, Ben & Jerry's, Levi Strauss & Co and the Miami Dolphins

  • The billionaire has also pledged $100million to help Joe Biden win in Florida

#1 Pay me lots of filthy lucre, and I'll vote for whomever you want.

#2 That’s an extra $20 million for Florida’s budget, while felons are about as poor as college students at actually turning out to vote. Still, this is likely to have a better return on investment than Mr. Bloomberg’s primary run for the presidency.

#5 Pay me sufficient money and I'll tell you I will vote for whomever you tell me to. Unless the leftists/Bloomberg organization are doing up the mail ballots themselves and sending them in, there's no way to verify someone's vote. Its the only way to validate how someone voted - by checking it as its sealed into the envelope.

Hmm. Maybe that's why they want the mail-in elections.

#6 Bloomberg, like the rest of gets one vote. However, monied pukes like Bloomberg and Soros try to vote more than once by paying others to vote. Yeah, vote buying should be criminally investigated as it negates the will of the people.
