The AAF linked to a 2017 tweet by Yamiche Alcindor announcing her move to Washington DC.
“Some news: I moved to DC this week to cover social safety net issues and how Trump’s administration impacts everyday people’s lives,” Yamiche Alcindor posted a few days before Trump’s inauguration.
Yamiche Alcindor used vote-by-mail to cast her ballots in Florida’s 2020 primary and general elections, The Federalist noted, citing Exhibit A in the American Accountability Foundation’s complaint.
In August, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) announced 20 individuals across the Sunshine State have been charged with voter fraud.
“The majority of these people illegally voted in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami Dade although there are others in other parts of the state,” Governor DeSantis said.
“These folks voted illegally… They are disqualified from voting because they have been convicted of either murder or sexual assault!” DeSantis said.
DeSantis delivered the news from a courtroom in the Broward County Courthouse.
