(Daily Signal) Florida’s new office targeting election crimes is a model for the rest of the country, based on its transparency and capacity to restore trust in elections, a new report from a watchdog group says.
Gov. Ron DeSantis, a Republican, last year signed a bill creating the Office of Election Crimes and Security.
The Foundation for Government Accountability, a conservative government watchdog group, released a report Wednesday praising the Florida office even as Democrats and legacy media outlets have criticized its investigations.
“Since its creation, Florida’s election crimes unit has received more than 2,000 complaints and initiated nearly 1,000 independent investigations,” the report from the Foundation for Government Accountability says.
“More than 1,500 cases have been referred to another agency and 234 cases were referred to special agents,” the report says. “These investigations are already producing results with the arrest of 20 individuals.”
