“These folks voted illegally… They are disqualified from voting because they have been convicted of either murder or sexual assault!”
Thegatewaypundit.com reports: DeSantis delivered the news from a courtroom in the Broward County Courthouse.
The Miami Herald reported:
Gov. Ron DeSantis announced the arrests of 20 people across Florida on charges of voting illegally because they had been convicted of murder or sexual assault charges.
Under Florida law, people convicted of those crimes are not entitled to have their civil rights restored and are not eligible to vote.
DeSantis, in making the announcement Thursday afternoon in a courtroom at the Broward County Courthouse in Fort Lauderdale, said there would be other arrests for people who cast ballots but were not eligible to vote in Florida for other reasons.
Florida Department of Law Enforcement Acting Commissioner Mark Glass said that officers from FDLE made arrests Thursday in the Tampa, Orlando and Miami areas.
