While elected Democrats and their mainstream media cheerleaders continue to claim that vote fraud is ‘rare,’ reports continue to suggest otherwise.
The latest involves a Florida woman and registered Democrat who has just been arrested and charged with voting in several states since 2014.
“Cheryl Ann Leslie, of Loxahatchee, was charged with two counts of casting more than one ballot in an election — both are third-degree felonies,” The Blaze reported, citing local outlets.
The site added:
Leslie was being investigated for voting fraud regarding the 2020 general election. The investigation was spearheaded by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s Election Crime Unit (FDLE) and the Florida Secretary of State’s Office of Election Crimes and Security – a new office created in July by Gov. Ron DeSantis to investigate election crimes in Florida.
The agencies said Leslie voted in the 2020 federal and state primary elections in both Florida and Alaska. The 55-year-old Florida woman reportedly voted in Alaska by mail and voted early and in person in Palm Beach County.
In addition, authorities also said that Leslie voted in both states in the years 2014, 2016, and 2018.
But for now, she is only facing charges for the alleged voting crimes during the 2020 election, Gretl Plessinger, a spokesperson for the FDLE, told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
Leslie told authorities that she is employed as a physician assistant at a senior care facility in Loxahatchee, but she travels to other states, including Alaska, for her job. She was arrested on Friday and booked into the Palm Beach County jail as was being held on a $1,000 bond.
Last month, the Election Crime Unit arrested and charged Alfred Samuels, also known as Alford Nelson, on a pair of counts for allegedly voting as an unqualified elector. Also a registered Democrat, Samuels voted in this year’s elections but is not a U.S. citizen, according to reports.
Originally from Jamaica, Samuels allegedly utilized a fake birth certificate from New York City to register to vote in March 2022.
Florida Politics reported, “Samuels has gone by at least seven different aliases, according to the Department of Corrections, and has previously served prison time in prison for 11 felonies, including cocaine possession, selling/purchasing drugs within 1,000 feet of a school, resisting arrest with violence and trafficking cocaine.”
In August, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced that nearly two dozen arrests had been made in regard to illegal voting.
“The investigation was led by the DeSantis-championed Office of Election Crimes and Security, an office created during the 2022 legislative session to focus on election fraud investigations and prosecutions. The first round, announced during a press conference in Broward County, was focused on felons who illegally voted in 2020 by either not properly applying to have their voting rights restored or were ineligible because of the severity of their crimes,” Politico reported.
The governor added that some of those who were arrested for voting illegally had also been convicted of crimes like rape and murder.
“This is just the first step. There are many more in the pipeline,” he said. “We are not just going to turn a blind eye to this. The days of that happening in Florida are over.”
