Miami Candidate's Campaign Workers May Have Tampered With Absentee Ballots

In one message, a campaign worker posted an image of a ballot and joked that it had been stolen. In another text, someone took a photo of a ballot and wrote "Byebye." In a third message, someone instructed a campaign worker to "tear up the ballot good."


A source with knowledge of the thread said the people involved, who are in most cases identified only by phone numbers, had been gathered by a local campaign consultant to canvass District 5, which stretches across Spanish-speaking parts of mainland Miami and onto Miami Beach. Like Diaz de la Portilla, multiple people in the text-thread did not answer phone calls. New Times also asked the Miami-Dade State Attorney's office whether prosecutors are looking into the leaked images, but did not receive a response.

On May 11, 2018, someone posted an image of a ballot that had been sent to an address on NW First Street. The worker then wrote in Spanish: "Stolen, hahahaa. I did not give it to the lady but what do we do if she voted for Zoraida????"

New Times reached a woman at that phone number. When the woman was asked about the text-thread, she immediately hung up.
