I never thought I’d write that headline, but alas, it has come to this. Dehydrated, animated tangerine Donald Trump was 100% correct. This election is being rigged.
Gladys Coego, a 74-year-old volunteer election worker in Florida (why is this still a state?) was arrested and charged with two counts of illegally marking ballots another person’s ballot.
The scam that Ms. Coego was pulling involved her covertly pulling a pen out of her purse, marking the ballots where the voters had left the Republican mayoral candidate for Raquel Regalado.
Gladys’ job required her to open mailed in ballots, so she had access to all mailed in ballots and it’s uncertain exactly how many ballot the criminal mastermind marked before she was caught. Authorities know for a fact that she marked at least two ballots, but suspect her of doing several more. She was only caught because a co-worker saw her dastardly deeds and turned her in.
Coego turned herself into authorities on Friday and her bond was set at $10,000.
And if that wasn’t enough, a second woman, also in Florida (of course) was also arrested for perpetrating voter fraud and trying to steal the election from the people.
Tomika Curgil was arrested on Friday for unlawfully filling out voter-registration forms on behalf of United for Care, the campaign to legalize medical marijuana in Florida. Curgil was arrested at her home, by police, and charged with 5 counts of voter fraud and her bond was set at $125,000. She apparently submitted several voter registration cards for at least 15 people who don’t exist and several forms for people who are dead.
So there. Donald Trump was right. The election is rigged. Start the revolution.
