Two Florida men sentenced for fraudulently registering voters by forging their signatures


Two men have been convicted and sentenced in Duval County, Florida of fraudulently registering Floridians to vote by forging their signatures on registration forms.

This week Devin King, 32, was sentenced to a year in prison followed by probation after he was arrested last year for turning over a large number of fraudulent voter registrations to Duval County election officials.

King’s sentencing came more than a month after his co-conspirator, Jordan Daniels, 35, was sentenced to 10 months in prison followed by 14 months probation for committing the same crime – forging Floridians’ signatures on voter registration applications.

The voter fraud convictions were in part the result of research released last year by the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), which detailed how election crime cases were piling up despite county election officials having referred the cases to state prosecutors.

“As a result of our research, it appears that these two men have been arrested for election crimes,” PILF President J. Christian Adams said in a statement.

Across nine Florida counties, PILF research noted that some 156 criminal referrals were made about potential election crimes. One such case involved the Kings-Daniels fraud scheme.

“We provided this report to state officials to increase pressure on state prosecutors to address this and other election crime referrals,” Adams continued. “Since that report, Governor Ron DeSantis has established a state Election Crimes Unit, making the Florida election much safer. He deserves credit for the steps he has taken to address election crimes in Florida.
