‘They want to have control’
WEST PALM BEACH, Florida – The state of Florida is pushing back against the federal government’s “monitoring” inside polling places on Election Day, saying it violates state law.
On Monday, the Florida Department of State sent a letter to Joe Biden’s Justice Department, notifying officials that “federal election monitors” are prohibited from going inside polling locations.
The Justice Department announced it was sending monitors to 64 jurisdictions in 24 states, stating: “Monitors will include personnel from the Civil Rights Division and from U.S. Attorneys’ Offices. In addition, the division also deploys monitors from the Office of Personnel Management, where authorized by federal court order. Division personnel will also maintain contact with state and local election officials.”
