Ken Block, two-time gubernatorial candidate, who has not indicated plans to run for any public office in 2018, did a computer analysis of the potential for voter fraud for a nonprofit organization co-founded by President Donald Trump’s former chief strategist Stephen Bannon.
“Block’s company, Simpatico Software, published a report titled “America The Vulnerable: The Problem of Duplicate Voting.” “His study was funded by the Government Accountability Institute, a nonprofit group chaired by GOP mega-donor Rebekah Mercer that was co-founded by former chief White House strategist Steve Bannon.”
Ken Block said, “We discovered more than 2,000 votes cast in Florida in 2016 that also had the same voter cast a vote in 2016 in a different state as well.”
So did that also apply to ‘Steve Bannon’, because according to the Washington Post, last year Bannon was registered to vote in both Florida and New York. He listed his Florida address as a vacant Miami home, according to their investigative report. And under Florida law, it is a third-degree felony to include false information on a voter registration application. Bannon registered to vote in New York from a Manhattan condo overlooking Bryant Park and later cast an absentee ballot in the presidential election. Because he was registered in two places, he was later removed from Florida’s voter rolls. When the Post inquired about the Miami-Dade County State Attorney’s Office investigation into his residency claim, they initially cited confidentiality rules for “active criminal investigative information.”
Impressive research… https://www.washingtonpost.com/investigations/during-his-political-rise-stephen-k-bannon-was-a-man-with-no-fixed-address/2017/03/11/89866f4c-0285-11e7-ad5b-d22680e18d10_story.html?tid=ss_tw&utm_term=.0333258d808f
Therefore, if Block’s man avoided prosecution for voter fraud — the accusation he’s been leveling at others… the hypocrisy is appalling.
And the question is — did he miss all this – or choose to ignore it?
We leave that for him to answer should he have the stones to announce for governor.
