FORT MYERS, Fla.- FDLE is conducting a criminal investigation into the recent Fort Myers election.

WINK News was first to report that FDLE was looking into the Ward Three Primary race, where Councilwoman Christine Matthews beat out Councilman Levon Simms. Now,  the investigation has turned criminal.

As we first reported, FDLE is looking at more than 100 absentee ballots. All of them came from just three IP addresses, and at least one of those belongs to Matthew's computer and cell phone.
