Washington, D.C. — U.S. Congressman Matt Gaetz (FL-01) today issued the following statement regarding allegations of election fraud in Florida’s key races, Ron DeSantis for Governor and Rick Scott for Senate. 

“It is absurd that since election night almost 80,000 Floridian ballots have been spoken into existence in the two most conspicuously blue counties. The supervisors for these counties have no explanation for where these ballots were, why they weren’t counted, or how many more even exist. This malfeasance erodes the faith that undergirds our democratic system and after 18 years, Florida should have been better equipped to avoid this partisan brand of unlawful electioneering. 

For a party that is willing to cry wolf over voter suppression in every election they lose, the Democrats have no problem relying on fraudulent ballots to do the heavy lifting for their candidates. I can not and will not be the one who sits idly by and watches corruption of this magnitude occur without putting up a fight to stop this injustice,” Rep. Gaetz said.
