New Report: Florida Dems Planned To Use Altered Forms To Fix Mail Ballots After Deadline

Yesterday, Politico reported that federal prosecutors are investigating date changes made to official state election forms and tying the activities to the Florida Democratic Party. Now, the Naples Daily News reports that Florida Democrats were organizing after last week’s election to give voters the altered forms in an attempt to fix improper ballots:

“But an email obtained by the USA TODAY NETWORK-Florida shows that Florida Democrats were organizing a broader statewide effort beyond those counties to give voters the altered forms to fix improper absentee ballots after the Nov. 5 deadline. Democratic party leaders provided staffers with copies of a form, known as a “cure affidavit,” that had been modified to include an inaccurate Nov. 8 deadline…

It is not clear how many altered forms were sent across the state, but Kim’s email outlined a step-by-step process for volunteers and staffers to follow in order to get as many voters as possible to submit the altered form three days after the deadline.”

Not a great look for the Florida Democrats as we await results from the recount:
