Man Charged With Changing Voter Registration Information Of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis

October 28, 2020

A Naples man has been arrested for changing the voter registration of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

Steven Guevara, 20, is charged with unauthorized access of a computer  and altering a voter registration without consent.

FDLE agents began investigating Monday after Governor DeSantis learned his address in the Florida voting registration database was changed to an address in West Palm Beach.

FDLE said the registration address was changed via computer over a web browser. Agents were able to identify Guevara as the suspect and arrested him at his home following a search warrant Tuesday night.

Agents believe Guevara also accessed the voter registrations of U.S. Senator Rick Scott and sports celebrities Michael Jordan and LeBron James, but made no changes.

FDLE Commissioner Rick Swearingen said, “I am proud of the quick and detailed work of our agents on this case and appreciate the hard work of the offices of State Attorneys Amira Fox and Jack Campbell. FDLE is committed to ensuring the voting rights of Florida citizens are protected, and we will continue to work with our local, state and federal partners in ensuring the security of our elections.”

Guevara was booked into the Collier County Jail on a $5,000 bond. This case will be prosecuted by the Office of the State Attorney, 20th Judicial Circuit.

    Maybe Barbara is one of those NY transplants and doesn’t understand the real world here in Florida. Our cities are not the ones being looted and destroyed by violence. We support our police and they in return protect us from violence and looters.maybe she would be happier in a blue area like NY or Michigan or Chicago.

    It could be that he is sending a message to the powers to be that it is entirely too easy to access and change voter information

    Arnold,

    Why are you so concerned over the party affiliation? Is everything red vs blue in your world?

    So a 20 year old kid can hack the voter system.

    Gives me great faith that it’s secure.

    Russia, North Korea, China nor Iran will be able to get in.

    Kid has some cyber skills…if only he’d used his powers for good instead of evil…
