Gov. Rick Scott has appointed Broward State Attorney Michael J. Satz to take over a Hialeah absentee-ballot fraud investigation.
Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernández Rundle stepped aside from the case last week, citing a potential conflict of interest.
Fernández Rundle recused herself after she said she received unconfirmed reports that someone hired by a company working on her reelection campaign had been seen with Deisy Cabrera, the suspected ballot broker charged last week with voter fraud for allegedly forging an absentee-ballot signature and for being in possession of 31 ballots.
