FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Nov. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Lerman Law Firm (Cathy Jackson Lerman, P.A.) today announced that it has expanded its public corruption investigation of the office of the Broward County Supervisor of Elections (“SOE”), the Broward County Canvassing Board, the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, and certain private individuals who may be assisting these agencies in potential fraud, misconduct, corruption, bribes, and ballot fraud arising from both the Broward County Elections held in August and November of 2018.

“There is not enough room in a press release to delineate all of the types of fraudulent, criminal, incompetent and illegal conduct that has been witnessed and reported concerning both the August and November elections in Broward County. Please visit our blog for more details on the types of irregularities and discrepancies, as well as old-fashioned corruption, that have been reported this year in these two elections in Broward County” said Cathy Lerman, principal of the Lerman Law Firm. “This is, of course, not to mention the illegal destruction of ballots by SOE that occurred in 2016 and the reported use of ‘ballot mules’ in 2011 and 2012 to skew the results of those elections.”

“We are expanding and extending our investigation to other Broward county public agencies and officials based upon information obtained from whistleblowers about the conduct of these agencies and certain individuals. Rest assured, our law firm is committed to bringing the truth to light and to exposing the atrocious conduct of various corrupt public officials. This is not a political issue. We are not acting as Republicans, Democrats or Independents. We are simply Americans committed to electoral integrity, transparency and ensuring the constitutional right of citizens to cast their votes with the utmost confidence that they will be correctly reported and counted.”

“The excuses by officials who hide behind claims of incompetence or mistakes will no longer work. Threats by lawyers for these officials to stop whistleblowers from coming forward to expose this election fraud will not work anymore. There is a well-planned, orchestrated, and executed systemic scheme to control the election process and the outcomes of all elections in Broward County by certain corrupt politicians, public officials and private individuals. It has been going on for more than a decade, and I and many other Broward voters, have had enough. It is now time to start putting people in jail, firing everyone who is assisting or is complacent in these schemes and giving back control of the election process in Broward County to the voters.”

“We applaud Attorney General Pam Bondi for calling for a criminal investigation of the circumstances surrounding the Broward elections. Attorney General Bondi has indicated that she believes it is warranted by the conduct of SOE. We encourage Attorney General Bondi to direct that this investigation include all employees of SOE, the Canvassing Board, as well as their contractors, attorneys and vendors. We believe that this is a long-standing organized scheme to defraud the voters of Broward County, carried out by a well-organized team of corrupt individuals in both the public and private sector. We also urge Attorney General Bondi to investigate the circumstances surrounding the Broward County Sheriff’s Office’s (“BSO”) procurement of absentee ballots from inmates in the BSO jails.” 

“We want to thank all of the whistleblowers who have come forward to assist us in this investigation and to encourage whistleblowers who know the truth about how these schemes are being executed to come forward and provide the information necessary to indict and convict everyone involved in this perpetual election fraud, which is rampant in Broward County.”
