Wealthy Democrat Michael Bloomberg was caught paying the outstanding fines and fees of 32,000 convicted Florida felons in an effort to help Democrats steal the November election.
With Florida being an important swing state, GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz gave a warning to billionaire Bloomberg that there might be a criminal probe into his actions.

Gaetz went on to Fox News’ “Hannity” on Tuesday and said he was in contact with Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody to discuss the wealthy liberal’s effort in Florida.
“I believe there may be a criminal investigation already underway of the Bloomberg-connected activities in Florida,” Gaetz told host Sean Hannity.
There may even be a criminal investigation already underway.

The former mayor of New York City, Bloomberg threw his hat in the ring earlier this year as a Democratic presidential nominee.
The Wealthy Democrat Wants to Get Felons’ Votes
It is reported that he has raised over $16 million for the Florida Restoration Coalition.
The Florida state constitution makes it legal for convicted felons to get their voting rights back after their time has been served.
Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis enacted a law that declares that felons must pay all fines, restitution and other financial aspects related to their charges before their sentences are considered fully served.
“[Under Florida law] it’s a third-degree felony for someone to either directly or indirectly provide something of value to impact whether or not someone votes,” Gaetz explained. “So the question is whether or not paying off someone’s fines and legal obligations counts as something of value, and it clearly does.
“If Michael Bloomberg was offering to pay off people’s credit card debt,” Gaetz added, “you would obviously see the value in that.
“[W]hen you improve someone’s net worth by eliminating their financial liabilities, that’s something of value,” he went on. “Normally, it would be very difficult to prove that that was directly linked to impacting whether or not someone was going to vote. But they literally wrote their own admission.”
Disturbing Motives Unveiled
A memo released by Bloomberg stated that he understands Democrats need to take Florida by any means necessary in hopes of winning the election.
“We know to win Florida we will need to persuade, motivate and add new votes to the Biden column. This means we need to explore all avenues for finding the needed votes when so many votes are already determined.”
“The data shows that in Florida, Black voters are a unique universe unlike any other voting bloc, where the Democratic support rate tends to be 90%-95%,” the memo continued.
“The law is clear this is something of value,” Gaetz reiterated, “and I am encouraged after my conversation with the attorney general. I hope we have good law enforcement all over the country looking for the cheating and the tricks that these Democrats are going to try in this election.”
