Soros-Funded Groups Working to Register 1.4 Million Ex-Felons in Battleground Florida Ahead of 2020 (Video)

With its 29 Electoral College votes, Florida is the nation’s biggest swing state and is critical to Trump’s path to victory in the upcoming race.

The Democrats declared war on President Trump the day he was elected. They are strategically working against the president, Republicans and millions of Americans to ensure that Trump does not win in 2020, and it is all being funded by radical left-wing billionaire George Soros who is behind efforts to secure victory for Democrats in Florida with the help of convicted criminals.

Florida has nearly 1.4 million ex-felons making it the nation’s biggest swing state which is poised to play a pivotal electoral role in the 2020 presidential race. Progressive organizations, mainly funded by Soros, are working non-stop to ensure their votes go to Democrats.

The importance of the state of Florida in the 2020 presidential election, with its 29 electoral votes, cannot be overstated.

Florida is the nation’s biggest swing state and is critical to Trump’s path to victory in the upcoming race. If statewide 2016 voting patterns are repeated, the Democratic candidate for president would be able to win the White House by capturing Florida and one other swing state — Pennsylvania, Ohio, Wisconsin or Michigan.

We need only recall the November recounts in the Florida senatorial and gubernatorial races to know how the addition of 1.4 million felons (most of whom would vote Democratic), to the voter rolls, would impact the election.

Currently, Florida has 4.96 million registered Democrats, 4.7 million registered Republicans and 3.6 million registered independents on its voter rolls.

The current battle revolves around a Florida state amendment that was passed last year restoring voting rights for felons, with progressive groups opposing a local bill that would require the state’s ex-felons to first pay civil fines and court fees before registering to vote, according to Breitbart.

Florida’s Amendment Four was approved by voters during last year’s Midterm election.

Florida Amendment 4, otherwise known as the “Voting Rights Restoration for Felons Initiative,” was passed by Florida voters in November. The measure restored the voting rights of Floridians with felony convictions (excludes murder or sexual offenses) after they complete all terms of their sentence including parole or probation.

Rep. James Grant, a Republican, has introduced a bill designed to guide the implementation of Amendment 4 by “helping to define criteria for the restoration of voting rights to ex-felons. One condition would require felons to pay all court fees and civil fines outstanding before they can register to vote. The bill passed the Florida House Subcommittee on Criminal Justice last month and could come to another vote as soon as this week.”

According to The Tallahassee Democrat columnist Mark Schlakman, this “ballot initiative was lauded as the greatest expansion of voting eligibility since the 1960s when approved by voters in November. But if legislation advancing along party lines passes, the effect would be far less sweeping.”

Obviously, this is where the conflict lies, Red State reports:

Democrats oppose the conditions the bill would impose and feel that it will disenfranchise felons who can’t afford to pay their fines and court fees.

The importance of the state of Florida in the 2020 presidential election, with its 29 electoral votes, cannot be overstated.

Thus, the significance of Grant’s bill.

Breitbart’s Aaron Klein reports that Soros-backed organizations are applying immense pressure to fight this bill so they can restore voting rights to 1.4 million felons in the state.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the Brennan Center for Justice are both supported heavily by billionaire George Soros. These two organizations are working hard to defeat Grant’s bill. George Soros’ Open Society is said to have donated $50 million to the ACLU. It also funds the Brennan Center.

Brennan Center Attorney Sean Morales-Doyle commented that “This bill is just flying directly in the face of what two-thirds of Florida voters said very clearly.”

Julie Ebenstein, an attorney for the ACLU’s Voting Rights Project told Klein that Grant’s bill is “truly untethered to the text of the amendment. What this will do, in effect, is disenfranchise people who can’t afford to pay all of these obligations.”

Many groups (most of which receive funding from the Open Society such as the Sentencing Project and the Tides Foundation) and wealthy individuals (former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg) are now focusing on the state of Florida due to it’s strategic importance to the outcome of the 2020 election. The Democratic Party has already initiated “a massive ground game in Florida to register voters, increase turnout and lobby Floridians against President Donald Trump.” Continue reading here.

Breitbart reports:

The restoration of voting rights to ex-felons comes alongside larger efforts by the Democratic Party and progressive organizations to deploy a massive ground game to Florida to register voters, increase turnout and lobby Floridians against President Donald Trump.

Democrats seek to transform Florida’s current voter map of 4.96 million registered Democrats, 4.7 million Republicans and about 3.6 million voters with no declared party affiliation.

(…)

The Florida Democratic Party itself is reportedly planning to spend at least $2 million to register new voters. The party is seeking to hire full-time organizers and utilize the services of data science firms in their Florida efforts, Politico reported.

Democrats seek to transform Florida’s current voter map of 4.96 million registered Democrats, 4.7 million Republicans and about 3.6 million voters with no declared party affiliation.

Failed gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum announced his own Florida voter registration initiative committed to registering no less than one million new voters for 2020 while aiming to “evict Donald Trump” from the White House.

“We are going to commit ourselves to registering and engaging one million voters between now and 2020’s presidential election,” Gillum said last month in Miami, addressing his new group which calls itself Bring It Home Florida.

“The road to the White House runs through Florida,” added Gillum. “We can deny Donald Trump a second term right here in the state of Florida.”

“How many states can you say, by themselves, have the ability to deny this man a return to the White House?” Gillum asked. “I can’t think of a bigger, better, more important state than the state of Florida, than for us to send that message.” Continue reading here.
