Naples Man Accused of Altering Gov. DeSantis' Voter Registration Information

A Naples man has been accused of altering the voter registration of Gov. Ron DeSantis.

According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, when DeSantis went to vote this past Monday, he discovered his address had been changed to an unfamiliar West Palm Beach location.

The bizarre occurrence led FDLE agents to arrest 20-year-old Anthony Steven Guevara of Naples on Tuesday.

In a statement, FDLE said the agency believes Guevara also accessed, but made no changes to, the voter registrations of U.S. Senator Rick Scott and NBA superstars Michael Jordan and LeBron James.

Guevara was booked into a Collier County jail on charges of unauthorized access to a computer and altering a voter registration without consent.
