Billionaire and former Democrat candidate for president Michael Bloomberg is trying to pull a fishy voting move in Florida.
Felons in Florida are not allowed to vote if they have outstanding legal fines, so Bloomberg wants to use his wealth to pay them all off so these felons can vote.
It would equal over 30,000 votes which the Democrats believe would go almost exclusively to Biden.
The attorney general in Florida is calling foul.
The Blaze reports:
Florida AG calls for criminal probes into Bloomberg-backed effort to pay felons’ fines so they can vote
Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody (R) has called for state and federal law enforcement to investigate the legality of an effort backed by billionaire Democrat Michael Bloomberg that has raised millions to pay off the debts of felons in the state so that they can vote ahead of the November 3 election.
Bloomberg — who has pledged to spend $100 million to help Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden win the White House — announced Tuesday that he helped raise more than $16 million toward a fund launched by the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition that has thus far paid off the court fines of over 31,000 former prisoners in order to restore the felons’ voting rights.
Following the news of Bloomberg’s initiative, Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz (R) tweeted, ” I just spoke to @AGAshleyMoody, she is all over the @MikeBloomberg-connected activities in Florida.”
Republicans are pushing back.
There may even be a criminal investigation already underway.

Michael Bloomberg shouldn’t be allowed to buy Florida for Joe Biden.
