Derek Chauvin was allegedly voting in Florida even though he lives in Minnesota.
Derek Chauvin is a name everyone in the United States knows now as he is the man who was caught on camera killing George Floyd. Chauvin's actions have sparked protests all throughout the country as people are hoping for answers and a change to the system. As it stands, Chauvin is facing second-degree, third-degree, and manslaughter charges that could effectively put him in jail for the rest of his life.
In a Twitter thread posted by Danny Rivero on Friday, it was revealed that Chauvin has a history of illegally voting in US elections. During the 2016 and 2018 elections, Chauvin reportedly voted in Florida despite claiming residence and paying taxes in Minnesota. While he had a home in Orange County Florida, he technically isn't allowed to vote there. This is a third-degree felony and can lead to significant jail time.
While it hasn't been determined whether or not Chauvin will face charges for these allegations, it just goes to show that some people truly believe they are above the law. President Donald Trump has been accusing Democrat voters of voter fraud but as it turns out, Republicans are just as susceptible to breaking the country's strict laws.
