Not saying this is right, but for crying out loud, what penalties then should be adjudicated upon those who steal a national presidential election?!
A Florida woman and her teenage daughter could face up to 16 years in prison.
Because they have been accused of rigging the votes for Homecoming Court.
The daughter was 17 years old when the votes for Homecoming Court were rigged.
However, she recently turned 18 years old, so will officially be tried as an adult.
This means that both the Florida woman and her daughter could face 16 years in prison — each.
Keep in mind that this severe punishment is for rigging Homecoming Court votes.
That’s right: they could both go to jail for over a decade for messing with high school celebrations.
Yet our same justice system seems to be ignoring irregularities and contradictions in the highly scrutinized 2020 presidential election.
A punishment of 16 years would almost certainly discourage anyone else from attempting to rig the Homecoming Court elections in the future.
So why don’t we apply this to public elections that have actual consequences regarding national policy?
CBS News has more details on this election fraud:
A Florida mother and her teenage daughter each face up to 16 years in prison after rigging a high school homecoming court competition, officials announced on Tuesday. The daughter who, was 17 when the crime took place, recently turned 18 and will be tried as an adult.
50-year-old Laura Rose Carroll, an assistant principal at Bellview Elementary School in Pensacola, Florida, was arrested alongside her daughter, Emily Rose Grover, in March.
The arrests came following an investigation that began in November when the Escambia County School District contacted law enforcement to report unauthorized access into hundreds of student accounts, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement in a press release.
In October, 117 votes for Tate High School’s Homecoming Court all originating from the same IP address within a short period of time and were flagged as fraudulent, authorities said.
Investigators found that Carroll — who had district-level access of the school board’s student information system, called FOCUS — and Grover had accessed student accounts.
Evidence showed Carroll’s cell phone and computers associated with their residence had unauthorized access to FOCUS and were used to cast 246 votes for the homecoming court.
Students also reported that Grover said her mom used FOCUS to cast votes.
Carroll had also been using her FOCUS account to access 372 high school students’ records, 339 at Tate High School, since August 2019.
The mother-daughter-duo were arrested and booked at Escambia County Jail on one count each of offenses against users of computers, computer systems, computer networks, and electronic devices, a third-degree felony; unlawful use of a two-way communications device, a third-degree felony; criminal use of personally identifiable information, a third-degree felony; and conspiracy to commit these offenses (a 1st degree misdemeanor).
Carroll’s bond was set at $8,500 and Grover was transferred to the Escambia Regional Juvenile Detention Center.
The state prosecutor announced Tuesday that Grover would be tried as an adult. She turned 18 in April, according to the Associated Press.
Carroll was suspended from her job, although it is unclear if she has been fired, and Grover was expelled from Tate High School.
Notice that the rigging wasn’t caught until after the Homecoming Court election had already been stolen.
It may take a while… it may take months or years, but the truth always comes out.
And the people rigging the election typically have connections to someone in power.
