Election problems in Florida? That’s an all too familiar of a story for people who remember the Bush/Gore recount debacle of 2000.
It’s especially familiar because the same two Democrat-run counties are involved.
Confused about what’s going on in Florida with the Rick Scott/Bill Nelson senatorial and the Ron DeSantis/Andrew Gillum gubernatorial races? Join the club. Conservative commentator Judge Jeanine Pirro, though, has broken it down plain and simple and explains how so much in the Sunshine State has been going on in the shadows.
The Republicans, Scott and DeSantis, were declared winners by the media after their narrow victories on the Nov. 6 election night, but Democrats Nelson and Gillum are refusing to concede. They’re demanding recounts, much like failed Democratic presidential candidate Al Gore 18 years ago in Florida.
“How, after four days, are the same two counties that we’ve repeatedly had trouble with in the past still able to say their election is not final?” Pirro asked rhetorically. “How is that possible?”
“Lo and behold, they find ‘missing ballots,’” she explained. “And where do they find these ballots? In deep-blue countries run by Democrats in Florida — Broward and Palm Beach.”
Explaining that recounts — started by Democrats — were also done in those counties in 2000, 2006, and 2016, Pirro pointed out that that the woman at the center of this new recount — Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes — actually destroyed ballots during an election two years ago, a judge ruled.
According to the Sun-Sentinel, Snipes approved the destruction of a bunch of ballots that were the subject of an ongoing lawsuit. Snipes claims it was an accident and was not done to ensure her friend Debbie Wasserman Schultz’ congressional victory.
As a result, Florida’s Department of State simply sent experts into Broward County “to ensure that all laws are followed.” Snipes kept her job.
Now in this November’s election, thousands of Florida ballots are suddenly appearing, and Snipes is refusing to comply with a judge’s order to “turn over records detailing how she counts and collects ballots,” Pirro said.
“Miss Snipes lives on to mess up another or overturn yet another election in Florida,” she said about Snipes’ continuing career. “Do you think a woman who doesn’t tally or canvas along the way, who loses thousands of ballots, who doesn’t want to turn them in in 30 minutes after the polls are closed — like 3,139 other counties do — should be trusted?
“Folks, this is lunacy! Voter fraud is insidious.”
Pirro also added that the number of illegal aliens voting is rampant. NBC News even did a story in 2012 about how “nearly 200,00 Florida voters may not be citizens.”
Politico reporter Marc Caputo believes Snipes will be out of a job soon if Scott and DeSantis get into the new offices after all this is said and done.
President Trump had this to say about the Florida debacle on Twitter Monday: “The Florida Election should be called in favor of Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis in that large numbers of new ballots showed up out of nowhere, and many ballots are missing or forged. An honest vote count is no longer possible-ballots massively infected. Must go with Election Night!
