Democrats Reduced to Histrionics as DeSantis Announces Full-Time Police Unit to Catch Election Cheats

Democrats across America collapse in histrionic fits of apoplexy in 3… 2… 1…

“Racist!” “White supremacy!” “Raaaacism!” Yes, noted white supremacist and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Wednesday announced a plan to create a new police unit to target election fraud on a full-time basis, also saying he wants state lawmakers to enhance penalties for cheaters — all in an effort to enhance election integrity. As I suggested in the headline, Democrats are no doubt devastated by the news:

“Not good.” Why not, obscure Democrat?

The announcement of the Office of Election Crimes and Security at a news conference in West Palm Beach, FL, as reported by Just the News, comes just months after DeSantis signed a law tightening security for mail-in ballots and as Republicans in many states continue to seek statewide audits of 2020 election results. DeSantis on Wednesday made a guarantee in the ongoing effort to curb election fraud.

“I guarantee you this: The first person that gets caught, no one is going to want to do it again after that.”

DeSantis also said he wants the Republican-controlled Florida legislature to slap additional restrictions on the use of ballot drop boxes, suggesting he no longer believes in the boxes from a security perspective.

“I don’t even think we should have drop boxes, DeSantis said.

DeSantis gave an example of how the dedicated police unit would work to curb election fraud.

“If someone’s ballot harvesting, you report it to these people and this is their sole job. Some of these counties, some of them will do the cases but that’s not their expertise. They got all these other crimes that they have to deal with. So by the time it happens, the election’s already over.”

“Ballot harvesting,” as noted by Fox News, the practice of allowing political operatives and others to collect voters’ ballots and turn them in en masse to polling stations, has drawn concerns about voter fraud from bipartisan election watchers.

Democrat State Rep. Anna Eskamani (Orlando) twisted herself into a pretzel over the whole thing.

More attacks on voting coming to Florida. Just like in 2020 we had elections last night in our state w/no issues. Why does our Governor keep creating partisan chaos? Why can’t we just focus on problems like housing, hunger, taxes, our environment & public transportation?

Yo, Anna. Why is the DeSantis plan partisan? And where’s the chaos?

I missed the part where Democrats only would be subject to arrest by the new police unit for election “irregularities.” Perhaps thou dost protest too much.

Incidentally, long-time Trump ally Roger Stone this past weekend called for a “forensic audit” and hand recount of Florida’s 2020 presidential election results even though Trump easily won the state. Stone said he may run against DeSantis as a libertarian if he doesn’t order an audit.

Good luck with that, Roger. If you do decide to challenge DeSantis, maybe Sydney “Kraken” Powell and Lin “Firing Squad” Wood will keep an eye on the results for you and make silly predictions and stuff.

In other fun DeSantis news, as we reported earlier on Wednesday, the popular Florida governor brilliantly inserted himself into the “Let’s Go Brandon” phenomenon that continues to set Democrat hair on fire, referring to the Biden administration as the “Brandon administration.”

How good was that?
