Naples, Florida –IMG_1583 3 August 14, 2021 -Collier County’s legislative team of Passidomo, Rommel, and Melo lead a panel discussion about Republican electoral challenges and opportunities in 2022

A near-capacity gathering of eighty-five Collier County Republican leaders and volunteers participated in the Collier GOP’s Campaign Strategy Cookout at the Tiburón Golf Club. Republican analyst and television personality Ford O’Connell moderated the brainstorming session. Senator Passidomo and the other panelists agreed that Republicans will win control of the US House of Representatives next year – but we must work hard to re-elect Governor DeSantis and retain control of the Florida Cabinet and Legislature. 

Ford O’Connell made the bold assertion that Democrats’ primary political goal next year is not keeping Congress – it is the defeat of Governor Ron DeSantis. “If he wins, the next President of the United States will be a Floridian.”

Collier Republicans call on our elected officials to attend Mike Lindell’s “Cyber Symposium” on election fraud.

August 2, 2021, Naples, Florida – The 85 members of the Collier County Republican Executive Committee (CCREC) who participated in our meeting earlier this evening passed a Resolution  (with only one dissenting vote) dealing with fraud in the 2020 elections and an upcoming “Cyber Symposium” hosted by Mike Lindell. The resolution, drafted by CCREC members Douglas Lewis and J. Eric Konuk of our Government Oversight Committee, calls on:

Governor DeSantis, Senator Marco Rubio, Senator Rick Scott, Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart, Congressman Byron Donalds, Senator Kathleen Passidomo, Representative Bob Rommel, Representative Lauren Melo, and Representative David Borrero to attend, with appropriate technology professionals, Mike Lindell’s cyber forensics elections symposium on August 10th, 11th & 12th, 2021 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota for the purpose of: (i) gathering information, (ii) evaluating the alleged evidence, and (iii) formally reporting all findings and any recommendations for follow-up action to their Collier County, Florida constituents; and 

Governor Ron DeSantis to send a delegation of lawmakers from both the Florida House of Representatives and the Florida Senate, and of officials from the Department of State, the Division of Elections, and multiple County Supervisors of Elections, and of multiple Florida citizens to meet with representatives of the Arizona Election Audit to observe and take notes for use in Florida and in connection with a full Arizona-modeled forensic audit in Florida of the 2020 Election. 

There were numerous anomalies in the election on November 3rd, 2020 including, but not limited to, statistically improbable or even impossible vote spikes in the middle of the night and/or days after the election, mail-in ballots without a crease indicating they were folded to be mailed, absentee and mail-in ballots from people who were not registered to vote and/or without a verified signature, and most alarming the use of electronic voting machines capable of connecting to the internet and potentially communicating with foreign hackers, including concerning allegations of foreign interference in the November 3rd, 2020 election by actors in Communist China. 

Forensic audits and calls for forensic audits of the November 3rd, 2020 election are occurring and increasing across the United States. In view of the numerous anomalies and mounting evidence of election fraud, the integrity of electronic voting systems in the United States is in question. 

It is imperative that we: (i) take and support action necessary to restore confidence in our voting systems, and (ii) get to the bottom of what happened regarding the election on November 3rd, 2020 in order to either: (i) confirm the November 3rd, 2020 election certifications and restore confidence in our voting systems, or (ii) correct voting systems problems and vulnerabilities and any fraudulently reported election results.
