Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) is suing Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes, alleging that her office has withheld crucial voter information as Scott's closely watched Senate race against Sen. Bill Nelson (D) appears set for a recount.
The lawsuit, filed Thursday evening, accuses Snipess office of withholding records regarding how many people voted, how many ballots have been counted and how many more votes remain untallied in Broward.
The lack of transparency raises substantial concerns about the validity of the election process, his lawsuit reads. It demands an emergency hearing ahead of a critical noon Saturday deadline for county canvassing board to submit election results to the state Division of Elections.
In a hastily called news conference in Tallahassee on Thursday night, Scott accused Snipes of having a history of acting in bad faith and called into the question where new vote tallies in Broward and Palm Beach counties were coming from.
The people of Florida deserve fairness and they deserve transparency and the supervisor of elections is refusing to give it to us, Scott said.
I will not sit idly by while unethical liberals try to steal this election,

The Democrat party is an organized crime syndicate.
Laura Ingraham is in ‘can’t we all just get along’ mode.
I know. I just turned her off.
Fox is no better than the other rotten biased cable news channels.
Even Mark Levin cited that over half of their coverage of President Trump is negative.
Thank God for OANN and CSPAN!!!
Step 1; force the recount.
Step 2; infect the recount process
Step 3; send the bag of bones back to the senate
Step 4; accuse everyone that questions the obviously corrupt process of racism.
Step 5; laugh.
I’m not laughing!
No, me neither. It’s not our list.
I hope that in the lawsuit that he also demanded a cease and desist order to stop the recounts, which, no doubt, will contain a lot of fraudulent votes and fraudulent recounts.
Steal FL Governor, change voting laws, win Presidency.
This is already done. Next election 1M felons get to vote in Florida.
Broward Co. cant comply by the rules and limits, they don't deserve to have any votes counted.
Let the public have their justice upon their own servants for ruining their votes!
the votes that were ‘delivered’ past the acceptance hour should be thrown out, that’s for sure.
the date/time stamps should be available electronically....
Mark was on fire tonight. I’m so thankful for radio and FR.
Its over. Scott sent the state police and now they have no more to count except maybe a couple hundred provisionals and the overseas/military. The added votes DID NOT change the outcome. Thank God for Roger Stone. I say they should still be investigated and this time sent to prison.
