The actions of Florida Republicans raise several questions about their ability to win elections in the Sunshine State without resorting to election fraud tactics they hypocritically purport to be against.
In 2020, Florida Republicans picked up a competitive state senate seat thanks to the machinations of former Republican state legislator Frank Artiles, who has been indicted for illegally financing a ‘ghost candidate’ with the same last name as the Democratic incumbent and successfully helped throw the election for the GOP.

“It is rich that the party that says it wants to fight election fraud is the one that keeps being associated with election fraud in Florida. From illegally financing ‘ghost candidates’ in state elections to illegally changing the voter registration of unsuspecting seniors without their consent, Florida Republicans have absolutely no moral compass for how to conduct themselves in a democracy. Will Carlos Giménez or María Elvira Salazar ever call out their party’s unethical, illegal and antidemocratic tactics, or will they just continue to quietly benefit from them?”
