PUNTA GORDA, FL – According to the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office, there have been many complaints referencing voter intimidation via email. These emails state a victims name, address, and voter information and are allegedly from the Proud Boys. In the email, the perpetrators ominously claimed to have “gained access into the entire voting infrastructure”. The email demanded Democrats to change their party affiliation to Republican “to let us know you received our message and will comply.”
