Yes on 2 Caught Red-Handed Stuffing the Ballot Box
-Sen. Jack Latvala disgusted by ‘Yes on 2’ campaign’s blatant attempt at election fraud-
TALLAHASSEE, FLA. (October 28, 2016) – According to a report by Patricia Mazzei in today’s Miami Herald, Miami-Dade busts 2 women for election fraud, a woman working for the “Yes on 2” campaign was caught red-handed “unlawfully filling out voter-registration forms on behalf of United for Care, the campaign to legalize medical marijuana in Florida.” According to Mazzei’s article:
“The Miami-Dade state attorney’s office plans to accuse Tomika Curgil, 33, of filling out forms for five people without their consent. She also submitted at least 17 forms for people who apparently don’t exist — and several forms for people who are dead.”
“…. Curgil ostensibly registered voters for People United for Medical Marijuana, the political committee financing the ‘Yes’ campaign for Amendment 2. The elections department flagged one of Curgil’s batches of forms as suspicious because all the registrations appeared to have been filled out and signed by the same person. After running the names, the department found several of the listed voters were deceased.”
Florida State Senator Jack Latvala (R-St. Petersburg), former chair of the Ethics and Elections Committee and incoming Chair of the Appropriations Committee, is calling on all counties to be on high alert. “We have to ensure that Yes on 2’s attempt at election fraud goes no further than Miami-Dade,” said Senator Jack Latvala. “And frankly, I’m absolutely disgusted by Yes on 2’s blatant attempt to betray the legitimacy of our democratic process.”
The “No on 2” campaign is extremely concerned about this and is urging all counties to be proactive in order to ensure a legitimate election.
Christina Johnson, spokeswoman for the Vote No on 2 campaign, stated: “We are urging the state attorney’s offices across Florida to investigate every voter registration form that was handed in by anyone working on behalf of the ‘Yes on 2’ campaign. And we are appalled that ‘Yes on 2’ would be so disrespectful to the democratic process.”
The VOTE NO on 2 Campaign’s sole purpose is to expose the Amendment 2 scam. For more information on the VOTE NO on 2 Campaign, please visit http://www.voteno2.org/.
