Florida inquiry clears Bloomberg over felons voting case

Source: AP

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida authorities on Wednesday closed a criminal investigation into fund-raising efforts by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to pay off the outstanding fines of thousands of the state's felons seeking to reclaim their voting rights, finding no violations of election law.

“After a review of the data, no donations from Bloomberg were identified nor were any violations of Florida election laws found,” said a two-page summary released by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

Bloomberg last year earmarked $100 million in Florida to help defeat then-President Donald Trump. In addition, investigators said, the billionaire Democrat and former presidential candidate raised more than $16 million to help pay off the legal debts of felons so they could vote in the election.

At the time, Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody sent letters to the state Department of Law Enforcement and the FBI saying further investigation was warranted. Gov. Ron DeSantis had asked Moody, both Republicans, to review whether Bloomberg and the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition had violated the law by offering incentives for voting.

1. I wish Bloomberg or some other billionaire would put up the money

to pay for a Voter ID card for every person that can't afford one but wants one to vote in States like Georgia and Texas who passed such restrictive voting requirements.
