Former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin could be facing more time in prison after being accused of committing felony voter fraud in Flordia.
According to reports, Dan Helm, a candidate for Supervisor of Elections in Pinellas County, sent a letter to the State Attorney of Orange County outlining the allegations against Chauvin.
“I write to inform you that, Derek Chauvin, the police officer who killed George Floyd in Minnesota, voted in Orange County Florida in 2016 and 2018 as a registered Republican,” Helm wrote to Aramis Ayala.
He said he discovered the information in the voter file.
“While living in Minnesota, working there, paying taxes there, Derek Chauvin cannot claim residency in Orange County. His home, residency and where he intends to live is in Minnesota, not Florida,” he claimed. “This is a violation of our election laws, specifically Fla. Stat. 104.011 (2).”
If charged with voter fraud, Chauvin could face an additional five years in prison and a $5,000 fine.
“I encourage you to hold people accountable for their actions, especially breaking the laws of our state,” Helm urged.
To clarify: This was sent from a candidate for Supervisor of Elections in Orange County to the state attorney's office. The state attorney hasn't said she's charging, but this is clearly an illegal thing to do.
