Petition Fraud

By  | 

After checking several batches of petitions from the group "Florida Inequities in Rates", officials found one batch with 50 signatures, all rejected.

Further checking revealed a batch of 212 signatures with 200 of those rejected. Officials say the bad signatures range from unregistered voters to birth dates that don't match.

Recently, scores of fraudulent petitions have been found in Gulf, Escambia and Okaloosa Counties.
