Election thieves are targeting Superintendents of Elections and employees with fake emails in phishing attempts to get their office login info. Are Florida SOEs smart enough to prevent their logins being hijacked? This article explains it and the notice sent out by the FBI warning them. And, HERE is the official FBI notice to SOE's. The question is, is your Florida SOE and staff intelligent enough to avoid such phishing attempts to get their password? In my opinion, as a retired information systems auditor and anti-corruption manager, I personally do not think so. Vance Jochim FiscalRangers.com FiscalRangers@gmail.com Apr. 4, 2022 Continue reading

2020 Florida voter registration analysis and questionable fluctuations in different party registration volumes are shown in this 10-minute video of the Florida statewide voter registration database. Also, could there be a pattern of fake registrations? Speculation is that Florida's membership in "ERIC" may be the reason. Go to the Rumble channel to see the 10 minute video.

Got Septic? If you have a septic tank or considering a replacement, or buying a new home outside city limits, you need water and sewage connections. A new "Septic to Distributed System" method for new homes and small developments (50 homes per system) that do not have direct access to city sewage systems was discussed at yesterday's (Mar. 22, 2022) Lake County Board meeting. You can watch the tab 30 agenda item meeting video by going to the Lake County website, clicking and scrolling to about 1 hour, 55 minutes and watch it, plus you can click the agenda tab and scroll to tab 30 to see the agenda documents. This new system was solicited by the Lake County Board to reduce pressure for developers to annex into cities and approve HIGH-density homes to justify costs for city proviced sewer pipelines. Instead, they found a vendor ( http://www.onsyte.com/ ) that can provide small, stand-alone, more advanced community septic systems. They also had an earlier presentation by the vendor several months ago. They were the only ones to respond to a request for proposal. They are not discussing mandating these for older homes with septic tanks (at this time). Both Lake... Continue reading

This video was made at the Feb. 7, 2022 So. Lake Republican Club of Tom and uploaded to Rumble on Feb. 13, 2022. We are now using Rumble for videos because YouTube issued us a "STRIKE" for uploading a video on election integrity and Laura Loomer. Florida Election Integrity Database Analysis by Tom Vail - Florida4America.com This 10-minute video is an interview by FiscalRangers.com of Tom Vail, one of many 2020 Florida Election Integrity activists in Lake County, FL who are researching suspected election fraud in Florida, including Lake County, FL. He shows two different sets of analytical reports that show 2020 voting data for all 67 counties in Florida, using the official Florida Secretary of State's 11-million voting history database for the 2020 elections. Report 1 was a county by county graph showing weekly voter registrations for Republicans, NPAs and Democrats and resulting questionable "spikes" in NPA registrations which justify further investigation. Report 2 was an extraction of the entire database listing all addresses by each Florida county that had more than 10 people registered at a single address. It then generated many questions to research, such as how over 9000 people registered to a single address and 6000... Continue reading

Elected government officials can learn from reported cases of fraud in local government. This link is to a story where a police chief and two others in the small town of Tryon, OK, population 500, embezzled over $80,000 over several years. The city's total annual budget was about $200,000. One lesson is that the elected officials apparently didn't exercise any type of oversight on the spending. "Oklahoma State Auditor and Inspector Cindy Byrd released her audit of the town of Tryon, between Stillwater and Chandler, on Thursday. She identified a total of $95,000 in misappropriated town funds via unauthorized and personal charges, according to a news release." Funds were withdrawn from city accounts via local casinos "In her audit, Byrd faulted not only the employees who benefited from the misappropriations but also the governing board for the town." "This "Town" Board was just asleep at the wheel." The Police Chief, Jered Pricket, is alleged to have made most of the personal transactions, including $3,700 in "questionable credit card expenditures," including deer hunting supplies. The "misappropriation" was 13% of Tryon's annual budget. “Donations made to the Tryon Police Department, totaling $3,960, were not deposited into the Town’s bank account,” Byrd wrote...

Investor Alert: Watch out for employers or investors being seduced into investing in Bitcoin. This AP article describes the collapse of a Bitcoin investment Ponzi Pyramid Scheme in Brazil, losing millions of customer investments. One way the organizer, a former waiter, grew the firm was finding "friends and family" members to invest from religious groups. The same tactic can be used via Chambers of Commerce, etc., enticing corporate or individual investors to follow their peers into the scheme. If you don't know what a Ponzi scheme is, research it! Individuals lost retirement funds, but what if some pension funds also invested to get a "guaranteed" investment return??? Employees should ask their Treasurers if they do any investment in Bitcoin and investigate it for risks. Continue reading
