[Ed. – Even if we accept that cheating isn’t widespread, Democrats, when claiming disenfranchisement, will also maintain that every vote counts. Doesn’t this ‘isolated’ incident suggest a larger problem that is worth investigating?]
Florida authorities nabbed a registered Democrat after he attempted to “test the system” by requesting an absentee ballot for his late wife, officials said.
Manatee County Sheriff’s Office began investigating Larry Wiggins, 62, after the mail-in ballot was requested for his wife who had been dead for two years, the Bradenton Herald reported.
“As soon as they pulled up the file it showed that she is dead,” Manatee County Supervisor of Elections Mike Bennett said.
Bennett said his office then compared the handwriting on the ballot request with previous documentation and found it wasn’t a match.
Deputies then interviewed Wiggins, who is a registered Democrat, and he confessed that he was trying to “test the system,” the newspaper reported.
“He wanted to test the system,” Bennett said. “He did test the system, and guess what? It worked.”
