Death of Hillsborough GOP member from COVID-19 causes financial problems for party

https://www.tampabay.com/news/florida-politics/2021/09/16/death-of-hillsborough-gop-member-from-covid-19-causes-financial-problems-for-party/

The Hillsborough County Republican Party alerted federal election regulators Tuesday that it may file its monthly campaign finance reports late because a key member of the organization died Saturday from COVID-19.

Prior to his death, Gregg Prentice developed and maintained software that electronically tracked donations to the Hillsborough County GOP and supplied data for the organization’s monthly finance reports. None of the other officers knew how to operate Prentice’s software, the party told the the Federal Elections Commission.

“We will be struggling to get all of this entered in the proper format by our deadline on September20, but we will try to do so with our best effort,” the party wrote.

For the better part of a decade, the cause Prentice took up was Florida’s election systems. Armed with analysis gleaned from self-sorted voter databases, he often levied severe accusations at local election supervisors, especially in Democratic counties. That work at times drew the attention of national conservative organizations and Republican lawmakers, who periodically consulted Prentice when writing voting laws, Wood said.


This guy handled finances and data for redistricting...

3. Sounds crooked, but leaves me puzzled

"... self-sorted voter databases, he often levied severe accusations at local election supervisors, especially in Democratic counties."

I think they mean he did his own statistical analysis of voter rolls and sought to gain a Republican edge through intimidation, but I could be misinterpreting.
