FL Dems: Jeb May Have Committed Felony by Marking ‘Hispanic’ on Voter Registration Form

On Monday, the Florida Democratic Party said former Florida Governor Jeb Bush may have committed a felony when he identified himself as “Hispanic” on a 2009 voter registration form.

As The Hill noted, Florida Democrats are referring to Florida’s current voter registration form that reads, “It is a 3rd degree felony to submit false information.” Bush would have violated the law in question if he “willfully” submitted false information. The New York Times reported on Monday that Bush checked “Hispanic” on his 2009 voter registration form.

Bush Tweeted on Monday that he had made a mistake and Bush’s spokeswoman told media outlets, “It’s unclear where the paperwork error was made. The Governor’s family certainly got a good laugh out of it. He is not Hispanic.”

Maximum penalties for submitting false voter registration information in Florida are “$5,000 and/or 5 years in prison.”
