Laura Ingraham wrote an op-ed for Fox News exposing the lies and deception by the Democrats in the midterm elections this year.

Ingraham mainly focused on the rampant corruption that keeps getting uncovered in Florida over the past couple of weeks.

“The integrity of our elections is imperiled. We may be witnessing yet another in a series of stolen elections in Florida,” wrote Ingraham. “Democrats are experts at pulling swifties at the ballot box, you know, it is widely believed that they resorted to voter fraud in Illinois and Texas to tilt the election of John F. Kennedy over Nixon in 1960. And they may be up to their old tricks again.”

“Things are so bad in Palm Beach that Governor Rick Scott, who is in a tight Senate race there, sued the county election supervisor, Susan Bucher,” she continued. “The judge determined that she had illegally withheld over voted and under voted ballots from the canvassing board. And worse she has refused to allow public scrutiny of the ballots.”

“The governor has also sued Broward County election supervisor – something of, kind of her own rock star, these days, Brenda Snipes. Now, Snipes is a piece of work. Her predecessor literally walked out of her office in 2003 for a grave and neglect mismanagement and incompetence. Practically a tradition down there in Broward.”

“And in May, a judge found Brenda Snipes guilty of illegally destroying ballots during a primary election in 2016. Then in August, a court found her guilty of secretly opening mail-in ballots, which is illegal in her state.”

“We cannot allow this flouting of the rules and procedures by corrupt officials or political hacks. We can’t let it stand. If we allow this to go unchecked, it will undermine our democracy, and like a contagion, it's going to spread across the nation. Eighteen years? Can you believe it, since Bush v. Gore?”

“It's absolutely unforgivable that we are still dealing with these type of issues. It is time for the Department of Justice to step in and do a top to bottom investigation regarding why these issues still persist.”

The state of Florida has long been known to have some potentially shady voting procedures which often arise during the close elections the state seems to have every other year.

A 2012 report from NBC revealed that there may be nearly 200,000 registered voters in Florida who may not be US citizens.

Later, it was discovered by state election officials that they had identified more than 2,600 people who are in Florida legally but ineligible to vote.

The initial list of names provided by the state of potentially ineligible voters contained nearly 182,000 names. This was later whittled down to 2,625. The state then found 207 non-citizens on the rolls on the federal database.

A state elections document from 2012 showed that only 85 non-citizens were ultimately removed from the rolls out of around 12 million voters eligible to vote at the time.

State officials do not know if any of the voters removed from the list had voted illegally in the past.

Keep in mind, in the 2000 presidential election, George W Bush defeated Al Gore by just 537 votes in Florida. It wouldn’t take much to swing a hotly contested race one way or the other.

Florida law requires voters to be a US citizen and to reside in the state. Florida also does not allow convicted felons to vote either.

Florida’s voting database has come under fire for issues with removing felons from the voting rolls as well as names of people who have died.
