Micheal Bloomberg and his team have raised over $16 million. They plan to use the money to pay the fines of an estimated 32,000 black and latino felons in Florida so they can vote.
“More cost-effective way of adding votes to the Democratic column than investing money to persuade voters who already have the right to vote, a Bloomberg memo said” – Micheal Bloomberg
Many Democrats believes preventing people from voting because of those fines or fees is a form of voter suppression. Flordia is also considered to be a battleground state in this 2020 election.
