FULL TITLE: Rick Scott files suit accusing Dem officials in Florida of 'trying to steal the election' after his narrow Senate victory, while a mystery ballot box is found two DAYS after the vote... and Trump wades in
Florida Governor and Senator elect Rick Scott, unleashed lawsuits against a Broward County and Palm Beach County while accusing Democrats of trying to steal the election.
Both the senate seat Scott thought was his on Tuesday night, and the Governor's spot that looked all but won by Republican Ron DeSantis are both now within the margin of error for a recount.
Scott believed he won over the Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson, however, during a press conference Thursday night, after his Senate campaign sued Broward County and Palm Beach County elections officials to turn over records regarding how ballots are being counted, Scott said 'The people of Florida deserve fairness and transparency, and the supervisors are failing to give it to us.'
The lawsuit was filed about the same time Scott ordered state law enforcement officials to investigate the Broward and Palm Beach voting operation.
A spokesperson for Nelson bristled at Scott's legal maneuvering, telling CNN 'The goal here is to see that all the votes in Florida are counted and counted accurately. Rick Scott's action appears to be politically motivated and borne out of desperation.'
