Voter Fraud in Florida

It should surprise no one that the 3 people accused of voting multiple times are all Republicans.

As I have noted, if you want to know what misdeeds Republicans are up to, just look at what they are accusing Democrats of doing:

Three residents of The Villages were recently arrested and face charges of casting more than one vote during the 2020 election, according to affidavits.

Joan Halstead, Jay Ketcik and John Rider all face felony charges of casting more than one ballot in an election, arrest reports provided by the office of Ocala-based State Attorney Bill Gladson show.

The complainant against the three was listed as the office of Sumter County Supervisor of Elections Bill Keen. When reached by the Orlando Sentinel, the office declined to comment, citing “an active investigation.”

It is unclear which candidate the three voted for. A spokesperson for Gladson’s office declined to release more details on the allegations Tuesday.


State voter records show Halstead, 71, and Ketcik, 63, are registered Republicans. Rider, 61, has no party affiliation.

However, posts in support of former President Donald Trump can be found on Facebook pages appearing to belong to Halstead and Rider. News 6-WKMG reported that a Facebook page appearing to belong to Ketcik also had pro-Trump posts, although the page seems to have been deleted.

Why is it that whenever there is a credible allegation of voter fraud, it’s always Republicans that are doing it?
