BAM! Ron DeSantis Shuts Down Biden DOJ from Hindering Election
This week is going to be an exciting week. This week is not just voting, but learning the results of our voting.
In some states, there will be new governors elected. There will be some of the same old people in Congress, but there will also be some new faces as well. Of course, we’re going to be hearing about controversy regarding the elections for the next few weeks, so stay tuned in for that.
But the Biden regime seems like they’re up to some tricks. Just this week, the Biden DOJ announced that they were sending out some feds to certain jurisdictions to monitor the process to make sure everything is fair and secure…at least, that’s what they claimed anyway. One play they tried sending feds to was three areas in Florida, but Ron DeSantis wasn’t going to have any of that. He wasn’t about to let them interfere.
Brad McVay, the General Counsel at the Florida Department of State flat out told them that they don’t need the federal government to babysit their polls. They’ve got everything under control there and told them that there were not allowed inside the polling locations.
“(T)he Florida Department of State received copies of your letters to Miami-Dade and Broward Counties in which you seem to indicate that the Department of Justice will send monitors inside polling places in these counties,” the letter began. “We also understand you sent a similar letter to Palm Beach County.”
“But Department of Justice monitors are not permitted inside a polling place under Florida law,” the letter continued. “Section 102.031(3)(a) of the Florida Statutes lists the people who ‘may enter any polling room or polling place.’ Department of Justice personnel are not included on the list. Even if they could qualify as ‘law enforcement’ under section 102.031(3)(a)6. of the Florida Statutes, absent some evidence concerning the need for federal intrusion, or some federal statute that preempts Florida law, the presence of federal law enforcement inside polling places would be counterproductive and could potentially undermine confidence in the election.”
“None of the counties are currently subject to any election-related federal consent decrees,” the letter continued. “None of the counties have been accused of violating the rights of language or racial minorities or of the elderly or disabled.”
“Your letters simply provide a non-exhaustive list of federal elections statutes as the basis for this action without pointing to any specific statutory authorization,” McVay concluded. “When asked for specific authorization during our phone call this evening, you did not provide any. Accordingly, the Florida Department of State invokes its authority under section 101.58(2) of the Florida Statutes to send its own monitors to the three targeted jurisdictions. These monitors will ensure that there is no interference with the voting process.”
