Rick Scott’s Campaign Hired an Alleged Boletera, Or Absentee Ballot Broker

From Huffington Post (and many others), 09/17/2012:

Campaign finance reports show Florida Governor Rick Scott — who framed recent evidence-defying efforts to purge state voter rolls, limit registration and reduce early voting hours as a protection of “honest” elections — hired an alleged Miami-Dade absentee ballot broker during his 2010 gubernatorial campaign.

Scott’s campaign paid a $5,000 “contract labor” fee to 74-year-old Hialeah resident Emelina Llanes, who was identified as a so-called boletera to the Miami Herald and by El Nuevo Herald, multiple Miami-Dade watchdog blogs, and former Hialeah Police Chief Rolando Bolaños.
