A 72-year-old resident of the Villages — a Florida retirement community — has been arrested and charged with voter fraud for allegedly casting at least two ballots in the 2020 election.
According to Villages-News.com:
Halstead, 72, of the Village of Palo Alto was arrested at 6:20 p.m. Monday on the Sumter County warrant charging her with fraud, “casting more than one ballot at any election.” She was booked at the Sumter County Detention Center and released at 8:28 p.m. Monday after posting $2,000 bond.
In October, Halstead filed paperwork indicating she intended to challenge incumbent Sumter County School Board member Sally Moss, who has filed to run for re-election. However, Halstead, a former special education teacher in the Scranton (Pennsylvania) Public School District, later withdrew her candidacy in the non-partisan school board race.
Casting more than one ballot is a third-degree felony in Florida, punishable by up to five years in prison.
A look at Halstead’s Facebook page makes it clear that she’s an ardent supporter of former President Donald Trump.
On Jan. 19, just a day before President Joe Biden was inaugurated, Halstead posted a meme which read:
“Trump 2020: Keep America Great. You don’t have the balls to share because you’re afraid to offend your snowflake friends.”
Above the meme, Halstead wrote:
“His list of accomplishments, even while being persecuted daily, are amazing.”
Halstead is just the latest pro-Trump enthusiast who has been caught doing what the former president himself has accused Democrats of. Here’s a few of the others:
- Bruce Bartman faces two felony counts of perjury and one count of unlawful voting after casting an absentee ballot for Trump in the name of Elizabeth Bartman.
- Edward Snodgrass, who is a Porter Township trustee, has admitted to forging his dead father’s signature on an absentee ballot and then voting again as himself, court records and other sources revealed.
Seems the majority of the voter fraud in this country is being perpetrated by Republicans.
