If the polls are to be believed, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is winning in Florida.
But he may lose his grip on the Sunshine State after an ugly report surfaced that his campaign is suppressing minority voters.
The Miami Herald is reporting that more than 90 Biden staffers accused the campaign of voter suppression in the Sunshine State.
The charge has cast concerns about Biden’s improper practices in the state, where advisers of the Florida-based Coordinated Campaign on the ground have written a blistering memo that include complaints about “mistreatment” of workers, very little resources, “toxic” work culture, and an overall lack of direction from Florida Democrats.
The organizer also claimed that predominately Puerto Rican staffers were intentionally moved to areas of the state with a small Latino community.
The letter reads:
The [Coordinated Campaign of Florida] is suppressing the Hispanic vote by removing Spanish-speaking organizers from Central Florida without explanation

The internal message comes after Florida Democratic County chairs expressed concern that the 2020 campaign is starting to look like Hillary Clinton’s failed campaign of 2016.
Party leaders are worried Biden is making the same mistakes as the former Democratic nominee.
“We are roughly 100 days out from the election,” the letter also read, “and there is no functional targeted field outreach and organizing of the Hispanic/Spanish-speaking, Brazilian/Portuguese-speaking, and Haitian/Creole-speaking communities in our state. There are no targets, scripts, data infrastructure, community outreach, or phonebanks established for this.”
The Herald writes that morale among Biden’s Florida staffers is at an unprecedented low.
“The way you treat your lowest ranked employees says a lot about you as an organization,” said an organizer who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
