Florida election supervisors trying to steal Senate and Governor wins from Republicans

I thought this was an interesting story. In Florida, Republicans won the elections for Senate and Governor. But the people counting votes in Broward and Palm Beach refused to finalize their vote counts. And they are preventing any journalists from filming how they are counting the votes.

The Federalist explains what the problem is:

Three days after election night, when Gov. Rick Scott delivered a victory speech and held a comfortable margin of votes against Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, loads of ballots favoring the Democratic candidate mysteriously turned up in Palm Beach and Broward counties — where one official has a history of violating election laws.

State law requires that all early and by-mail votes be tabulated within 30 minutes of the polls closing, but three days later, Broward County Supervisor of Elections Dr. Brenda Snipes still refuses to specify how many people voted, how many ballots have been tabulated, and how many are left to count.

Since Tuesday, 80,000 new votes have mysteriously turned up in Broward County and another 15,000 in Palm Beach County. These newly discovered ballots have been “breaking almost 3-to-1 in favor of Democrats,” narrowing the margin between these two candidates to likely force a recount after Saturday’s noon deadline requiring all counties to turn over election results to the state Division of Elections.

Daily Wire reports that reporters who want to film them counting the votes are being threatened with arrest:

[…][The] Palm Beach Post… explains that elections supervisor, Susan Bucher, broke from normal practice by banning cameras from recording the ballot review process, which Gov. Rick Scott — who is waiting to see if he was elected to the senate — accused of “incompetence.”

Police were brought in to keep journalists out and block their view.

NBCUniversal, Fox Television, and Scripps Media sued Bucher over her refusal to let the media cover the public event. Marissa Bagg, a reporter for NBC 6 Miami, posted the emergency petition on Twitter, writing that the media outlets were suing “Susan Bucher and the Palm Beach County Canvassing Board for refusing to allow us to record video while they review ballots in a public meeting.”

What doesn’t the Demcrat elections officer want the journalists to see? Well for one thing, the two Democrat candidates who lost want the votes of non-citizens to be counted.

The Federalist explains:

During review of provisional ballots to determine whether a recount is justified in the tight Florida governor, senate, and agriculture commission races, Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher identified a voter as a non-citizen and declared that the ballot would not be counted.

Attorneys representing the Democratic candidate for senate Bill Nelson and the Democratic candidate for governor Andrew Gillum objected.

This tweet from Andrew Guest notes that the Broward county election supervisor has a very bad history being fair with elections: (H/T Daily Wire)

The tweet has all the links to the stories, and as you can see, they are pretty reliable sources.

Current Florida Governor Rick Scott has filed a lawsuit demanding that Snipes reveal how many ballots Broward county has. She is way over the deadline, and hasn’t revealed the number of ballots.

  1. Florida has to be intentionally incompetent in order to cheat.

    Not just these cases but where else in a first world nation do you want you hear of one state or province with such trouble ratifying an election all the time.

  2. This is so disappointing, but not surprising. They are crooks who are playing the race card to shield themselves from accountability. And if they get away with it – again! – it will only embolden the rest of the cheaters.

  3. Since all of these “votes” are now suspect they should be summarily rejected and Scott should step in and have this lady and everyone in that building “counting votes” arrested. Someone on Rush Limbaugh’s show called him up and asked him why this lade is even still in the position when she has a history of being shady – its because nothing ever happens to people that do this! Why hasn’t she already been arrested and made an example of? If there’s one thing people in the ancient world knew how to do was make an example of those who broke the law, thus discouraging others from doing the same. Get her out of there and make sure she suffers the maximum penalty under law.

      1. Aye, and the same should be done on a federal level for states who refuse to submit to a federal voter ID requirement. For state elections let the states do as they will, but for federal elections a voter ID should be a requirement to vote. States that refuse should have their federal votes ignored until they fall in line. This is getting out of hand. When these things go unpunished they only get worse. You would think most people would know this, but apparently not.

  4. Good news! Latest word on Florida: Scott and DeSantis IN (insurmountable leads), Snipes OUT (soon to be canned due to gross incompetence/possible fraud).

    The juicy detail? Snipes works for the governor, so the only question is who will get to send her packing when all this is over? Current governor Scott, or soon-to-be governor DeSantis?

    This is just too good. I should sell tickets.
