Skip to comments.Michael Bloomberg, felon? Bloomberg's wholesale bid to pay off felon fines to stack the vote for the Democrats in Florida is bribery.

The Democrats' Daddy Warbucks is back and once again using his money to try to buy an election.
Michael Bloomberg is among a group of rich people hanging around Florida and offering free fine payoffs to released felons in a more-than-implied exchange for their votes for Democrats. Bloomberg isn't playing non-partisan in this, a frequent dodge of leftists, he's shoveling $100 million of his own cash to make sure Florida votes for Democrats, and this is part of his game. That would be the same Michael Bloomberg who was last seen blowing a billion on his own presidential campaign and then stiffing his campaign workers, by promising to employ through the election, and then dumping them and leaving them out on their ears when he left the race. Money for cons, see, but not the help.
It's otherwise known as bribery, the exchange of votes for something of value, and it's explicitly forbidden under Florida law.
Florida's Rep. Matt Gaetz has noticed and he's raising the alarm:
"[Under Florida law] it’s a third-degree felony for someone to either directly or indirectly provide something of value to impact whether or not someone votes," Gaetz explained. "So the question is whether or not paying off someone’s fines and legal obligations counts as something of value, and it clearly does.
"If Michael Bloomberg was offering to pay off people's credit card debt," Gaetz added, "you would obviously see the value in that.
"[W]hen you improve someone’s net worth by eliminating their financial liabilities, that’s something of value," he went on. "Normally, it would be very difficult to prove that that was directly linked to impacting whether or not someone was going to vote. But they literally wrote their own admission."

He knows in his heart of hearts that felons will overwhelmingly vote Democrat.
It will be very difficult to hold these lowlife billionaires accountable but it must be done.
Are these payments taxable income for the recipients?
So quit talking and arrest and prosecute traitors.
My dad was telling me about this last night.
There is no possible way that this is legal. I know it’s a state thing, but can AG Barr have a say in this?
By the time theres an investigation, the election will be over.
I believe Florida can extradite a New Yorker to face Felony charges.
And, if Biden wins, so will the investigation.
You can, however, freeze the funds with an eye towards seizing them via Criminal Forfeiture laws.
There is a state law in Florida where something of value cannot be exchanged for a vote...This falls into that category and is being looked into as speak...
Heard that this morning on Brian Kilmeade radio show...
At this point no Democrat has ever been punished for anything in the history of ever !!!!!!
and so the skeleton with his face on the keyboard is appropriate

ITEM Basketball icon Lebron James is also looking to pay convicted felons fines so they can vote for Joe Biden.

He knows in his heart of hearts that felons will overwhelmingly vote Democrat. ............... Maybe, but would you trust a felon’s word that he will do as you ask? “Come here, sign this filled in ballot and I’ll give you $100 to buy some meth..” ? If mini Mike does that, “to the wall” as they say in Cuba.
Sometime, the research subjects were incarcerated individuals. Participation was voluntary but typically, some incentive was offered for participants.
Strict rules and rigid oversight was applied about ‘WHAT was appropriate compensation?’. Example: A pack of cigarettes? OK. A carton? Hell no! Cigarettes become currency in prisons.
EVEN IN PRISONS, coercion was not allowed in exchange for participation. But for SOME reason, it was OK for "O'Brainless" to give out millions in free cell phones etc.- in return for votes. I don't understand THAT. It's textbook bribery - no matter how you look at it.
No Conservative would dream of that much less pull it off with perfect impunity!!
Simply adding to the Marxist army, all beholding to the Democrats, which we will soon be fighting. We have illegal immigrants in sanctuary cities, brainwashed college students, rage filled minorities, released prisoners, LGBQT, BLM, ANTIFA, women protecting their uterus, and government employees. Formidable.
“No person shall directly or indirectly give or promise anything of value to another intending thereby to buy that persons or anothers vote”
Just buying votes. No big deal. Andrew Yang campaigned on it.
