Skip to comments.Mike Bloomberg Raises $16 Million to Pay Fines of Black, Hispanic Felons to Vote in Florida

Former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg and his team have raised more than $16 million to pay the court fines and fees of nearly 32,000 Black and Hispanic Florida voters with felony convictions, an effort aimed at boosting turnout for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
The money will go to fund a program organized by the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition to pay the fines, fees and restitution costs for former prisoners who are already registered to vote in Florida but barred by law from participating in the election because of those outstanding debts.
Bloomberg, who has committed at least $100 million to electing Biden in the state, raised the money from individuals and foundations over the last week, his advisers said. He saw the donations as a more cost-effective way of adding votes to the Democratic column than investing money to persuade voters who already have the right to vote, a Bloomberg memo said.
The Bloomberg effort, which will be pooled with about $5 million already raised by the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition, is narrowly focused only on Black and Hispanic voters who are already registered to vote and whose debts are less than $1,500.

Once a slimeball always a slimeball.
Maybe Florida courts can step in and raise each of the fines in question to a million dollars.
Not a good idea Mike. DeSantis will nail you and bust you. He announced it yesterday.
Democrats are the party of felons and rioters.
The way the country is going, it could be the majority very soon.
I missed that portion of Desantis. What did he say about this?
Will these people have to pay income tax on thid “gift” from Bloombeg?
Even if Trump wins re-election. After his 2nd term is over....were doomed.
Trump will win Florida by 200,000 votes.
Makes a person wonder if he is trying to compete with another slime ball by the name of Soros?
So, white felons are excluded?
How ‘bout bloomberg is laundering Soros money?
Has anybody printed the FELONS FOR BIDEN/HARRIS bumper stickers yet?
Bloomberg is an Eagle Scout.He is trying to financially schlong Florida.
By becoming a felon in the first place, they have shown that they are fine depriving others of their rights in order to sate their selfish needs
>>So, white felons are excluded?
From the article:
“Theoretically, a white felon who wished to see his or her voting rights restored could challenge Bloombergs effort on the grounds of racial discrimination. Florida civil rights law bans discrimination on the basis of race.”
You got a good point!
Literally buying votes. This is today’s Democrat party. Sad.
Fundraising for rioters! Isnt that kinda like aiding and funding Terrorism?
