Florida Trump supporter Joan Halstead, 72, has been arrested on a warrant charging her with casting multiple ballots in an election, local news outlet Villages-News reports.
Halstead, of the Village of Palo Alto, was arrested Monday and charged with fraud for “casting more than one ballot at any election,” the publication reported. She was booked at the Sumter County Detention Center and released at 8:28 p.m. Monday after posting a $2,000 bond.
In her Facebook page, Halstead promoted the former president and taunted those who didn’t share her posts as “snowflakes.”
“Trump 2020: Keep America Great” flag and the words, “You don’t have the balls to share because you’re afraid to offend your snowflake friends,” she wrote on a Jan. 19 post, one day before President Joe Biden’s inauguration.
Village-News also reported that “in October, Halstead filed paperwork indicating she intended to challenge incumbent Sumter County School Board member Sally Moss, who has filed to run for re-election. However, Halstead, a former special education teacher in the Scranton (Pennsylvania) Public School District, later withdrew her candidacy in the non-partisan school board race. Sumter County voter records indicated she registered as a Republican on June 29, 2020.”
