Gov. Rick Scott appoints Broward state attorney to handle Miami-Dade absentee-ballot fraud case

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.

No convictions

Satz only gets convictions on minorities or juveniles. Chock this one up to someone getting off Scott-free.
