Nothing Fishy Here

The Miami Herald reports that the state says everyone does it:

Florida Division of Elections spokesman Chris Cate told reporters last week that forms filed by the state Democratic Party, the Florida New Majority Education Fund and the National Council of La Raza involved “potential irregular voter registration activities” that “constituted a legally sufficient complaint of voter registration fraud.”

Representatives for all three deny fraud took place and say the state has yet to contact them about the allegations.

In the case against the Republican Party of Florida. the party was notified and was allowed to investigate and then file charges, and Supervisors of Elections around the state told the media that they found hundreds of faulty registrations.

In this case the Division of Elections announced that there were allegations against the three groups, but still hasn’t told them what the allegations are, or who made them.

No double standard here, nothing to see, go about your business, citizens.

Another One Bites The Dust

The Local Puppy Trainer reports on the latest local official to be arrested:

MILTON — Edward Collinsworth, Santa Rosa County’s chief deputy tax collector, has been place on annual leave after being arrested Wednesday and charged with 10 counts of sexual assault on a victim younger than 12 years old.

Yes sir, nothing but G*d fearing Republicans in Santa Rosa County. I’m sure that no one could have imagined that he would do such a thing… 👿

Note: He is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
