GET THE ZUCK OUT OF FLA: DeSantis Bans 'Zuckerbucks,' Creates Election Police Unit

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.26.22

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is on a legislation tear.

Earlier this week, the Sunshine State gov signed Senate Bill 524, “[requiring] voter rolls to be annually reviewed and updated to remove ineligible voters, tightens voter ID requirements, and increases penalties for some election-related crimes,” the Daily Wire reports.

“Most notably, it establishes the Office of Election Crimes and Security within the Department of State, which investigates election law violations. The bill also instructs the Secretary of State to submit a report and draft legislation for any further action to strengthen voter ID requirements,” DW continues.

DeSantis’ office also says the bill “[increases] the penalty for ballot harvesting from a first-degree misdemeanor to a third-degree felony, punishable by up to 5 years in prison, a $5,000 fine and up to 5 years probation”; it also “[broadens] the prohibition of election supervisors from receiving ‘Zuckerbucks.’”

“Zuckerbucks” refers to contributions or investments made by people like Meta co-founder Mark Zuckerberg. Zuck dropped million of dollars on the 2020 election to tip the scales in the Democrats’ favor.

DeSantis shared the news on Twitter.

“The legislation I signed today will continue to make Florida a leader in election integrity by increasing penalties for ballot harvesting, expanding our ban on Zuckerbucks, and establishing an election integrity unit in state government to enforce our laws.”
