DeSANTIS DELIVERS: 20 Floridians Charged with 2020 Voter Fraud, Ron Says 'This is the Opening Salvo'

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.19.22

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced Thursday that 20 Floridians have been charged with 2020 election voter fraud —and the Florida Office of Election Crimes and Security is delivering on its promise.

“In 2020, Florida ran an efficient, transparent election that avoided the major problems we saw in other states. At the same time, the election was not perfect, which is why we continue our efforts to ensure the integrity of our elections,” said DeSantis. “Our new election crimes office has sprung into action to hold individuals accountable for voter fraud. Today’s actions send a clear signal to those who are thinking about ballot harvesting or fraudulently voting. If you commit an elections crime, you will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”

“It’s not just going to be 20 arrests — this is the opening salvo of an office that was just set up on July 1,” he said while speaking at a courthouse in Fort Lauderdale. “This is the first step. There will be more that happen over the weeks and months [ahead]. And hopefully there’s not a lot of cases that need to be prosecuted for 2022.”
