A judge ruled on Friday that Broward County violated Florida’s Constitution by following open records law, sending the political world into a tailspin.
NBC6 Reporter Jamie Guirola reported Broward County officials have been ordered by the judge to comply with the open records laws by 7 p.m. tonight.
The ruling does not mention the allegations of voter fraud that have been made against Democrats in the state.
"Outgoing Florida Gov. Rick Scott, the GOP Senate nominee locked in a tight and bitter battle for the lead against incumbent Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, accused Democrats of conducting a coordinated effort to 'steal' elections in a campaign of possibly 'rampant fraud,' in a lawsuit Thursday," Fox News reported.
The report added, "Razor-thin margins in Florida's bitter Senate and gubernatorial races are raising the specter of possible recounts, potentially prolonging two of the most closely watched contests of the nation's midterm elections. A recount is mandatory if the winning candidate's margin is less than 0.5 percentage points when the first unofficial count is verified Saturday by Florida's secretary of state, according to state law."
Meanwhile, the governor's race is also in doubt after Republican Ron DeSantis was declared the winner and his opponent, Democrat Andrew Gillum, conceded. Now, Florida is set to explode.
President Donald Trump addressed the ongoing situation in Florida on Friday, promising to send his own lawyers.
“As soon as Democrats sent their best Election stealing lawyer, Marc Elias, to Broward County they miraculously started finding Democrat votes,” Trump tweeted. “Don’t worry, Florida - I am sending much better lawyers to expose the FRAUD!”
He later tweeted: “In the 2016 Election I was winning by so much in Florida that Broward County, which was very late with vote tabulation and probably getting ready to do a ‘number,’ couldn’t do it because not enough people live in Broward for them to falsify a victory!”
The president even went on to thank Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who has been tweeting about the developments in the Florida election for days.
Things appear to just be heating up in Florida.
