Ron DeSantis Blocked DOJ From Entering Polling Stations

( Election monitors sent by Attorney General Merrick Garland were denied access to voting places by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R).

This week, federal goons were used by Biden’s corrupt Justice Department to intimidate poll workers in 64 crucial swing locations across 24 states.

DeSantis retaliated by telling the federal government that Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach Counties would not put out the welcome mat.

The DeSantis Administration wrote in a letter to John Russ, Deputy Chief & Elections Coordinator that the Florida Department of State received copies of their letters to Miami-Dade and Broward Counties, which seem to indicate that the Department of Justice will send monitors inside polling places in these counties.

He acknowledged that they also wrote Palm Beach County a similar letter. Florida law forbids the use of Department of Justice monitors. Section 102.031(3)(a) identifies individuals who may enter any voting chamber or polling venue. Federal law enforcement presence in polling places would be counterproductive and potentially undermine confidence.

The Department of Justice under President Joe Biden tried to send election “monitors” into state-run polling places in several Florida counties, but the DeSantis administration fought back.

Brad McVay, general counsel for the Florida Department of State, wrote to John “Bert” Russ, deputy chief and elections coordinator for the Department of Justice, warning that under Florida law, DOJ observers “are not permitted” inside Florida polling places.

But Florida law forbids the use of Department of Justice monitors. The Florida Statutes section 102.031(3)(a) identifies the individuals who “may enter any voting chamber or polling venue.”

To ensure that the federal government does not meddle in Florida’s election process, the DeSantis administration will be sent its election integrity observers. A day or two after Broward County activist Chris Nelson initially posted an email to “field clerks” he received from a source, the Florida Department of State issued the ruling.


Employees of the Supervisor of Elections are urged to “give them access to witness the process” by the email’s author.
