Former Palm Beach County Commissioner Priscilla Taylor, knocked out of office last year when she lost a Democratic primary to Mack Bernard, continues to question the role absentee ballots played in her defeat.

“We all felt that there was fraud going on,” says Taylor in a story by award-winning Palm Beach Post reporter Lawrence Mower.

Taylor got 766 more votes than Bernard at early voting sites and election-day polling places. But Bernard piled up a 1,287-vote margin in absentee ballots to win the Aug. 30 primary.

Detectives with State Attorney Dave Aronberg‘s office found clear-cut evidence of voter fraud in last year’s August primaries, with nearly two dozen people’s signatures forged on requests for absentee ballots.

But prosecutors are dropping the case.
