Large scale fraud by "absentee ballot broker" in South Florida
Miami Herald reports on large-scale fraud by an absentee ballot broker: Felony charges and abusing the helpless. Disgusting.
A Hialeah boletera at the center of a weeklong absentee-ballot investigation that muddied the Miami-Dade mayor’s race was arrested Thursday after police say she fraudulently obtained an absentee ballot from a terminally ill woman in a nursing home.
Deisy Penton de Cabrera, 56, was charged with absentee-ballot fraud, a third-degree felony, and two misdemeanor counts of violating a county ordinance that makes it illegal for anyone to possess more than two ballots belonging to other voters. Investigators say Cabrera illegally collected at least 31 absentee ballots for the Aug. 14 primary election.
An absentee ballot broker? Even the existence of "brokers" in absentee ballots is concerning.
