DeSantis creates police unit to focus on election crimes full time (and expertly trolls Biden and the corporate media)
Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis continues to role model successful governance focused on the key issues. His latest point of leadership is securing election integrity, the lack of which is a serious problem that is destroying faith in political system. Once a critical mass no longer believes that elections are honest, the door is open to political violence and ultimately disintegration. The solution is not to denigrate those who doubt as “conspiracy theorists,” but rather to reassure them with serious measures designed to make elections transparently fair.
Just the News reports:
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Wednesday he is creating a new police unit to pursue election crimes full-time and wants lawmakers to enhance penalties for those who cheat when they vote, signaling Republican efforts to enhance election integrity are far from over.
The Republican governor's announcement of the Office of Election Crimes and Security at a news conference in West Palm Beach, Fla., comes just months after he signed a law tightening security for mail-in ballots and as Republicans in many states seek statewide audits for the 2020 elections.
"I guarantee you this: The first person that gets caught, no one is going to want to do it again after that,” DeSantis said in describing the deterrent he hopes to create with the new investigative office.
Having a dedicated unit ensures that investigators will be able to go after larger, more complicated plots, and that they will have adequate time to do so. Freed from being tied to the electoral calendar, they have the time to investigate and ultimately prosecute those who corrupt our fundamental political process of voting.
While announcing these measures, DeSantis dropped an aside that broke up his audience and led to chants of “Let’s Go Brandon,” calling the Biden administration the “Brandon administration.” He then proceeded to explain the chant for all those legacy media types who still do not get it.
