It’s over in Florida in spite of criminality by the Democrat registrar of voters, Brenda Snipes, in Broward County. Rick Scott scored the Senate seat by defeating Bill Nelson. According to the Florida Secretary of State’s office, Scott led Nelson by approximately 10,000 votes after the state’s 67 counties completed machine and manual recounts. Scott’s victory also marks the first time in more than a century that Florida has two Republican senators representing them in Washington. The state is scheduled to certify results in the race on Nov. 20.
Broward’s bungled recount efforts had many calling for Snipes to step down, including former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.
“There is no question that Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes failed to comply with Florida law on multiple counts, undermining Floridians’ confidence in our electoral process,” Bush tweeted on Monday. “Supervisor Snipes should be removed from her office following the recounts.”
Protesters have been camped outside Broward’s Lauderhill recount site since last Sunday.
Some carried signs that read, “Corrupt Snipes!!! Lock Her Up!” “Busted Brenda” and “I trust [Michael] Avenatti more than Brenda!” while shouting at election officials, counter-protesters and the news media.
