    You supposedly won’t have Brenda Snipes to kick around anymore. The subject of one of the more famous “Florida Woman” stories of late is reported to have resigned her position as Broward County Election Supervisor, taking effect in January. After numerous, spectacular failures in processing election results over the years, Saturday’s debacle of submitting their recount results two minutes after the deadline had passed was apparently a bridge too far and Ms. Snipes is stepping down. (Washington Times) Taking a page from the playbook of disgraced public officials around the country, Snipes reportedly wants to “spend more time with her...

    Just hours after finishing a tumultuous election recount on Sunday, Broward Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes submitted her resignation. “It is true. She did send it,” said Burnadette Norris-Weeks, an attorney who works as counsel to the Supervisor of Elections Office. Evelyn Perez-Verdia, a former office spokeswoman who left several years ago, said Sunday evening she was told by people in the office that the letter was sent “to Tallahassee” earlier in the day. Norris-Weeks said she saw an early draft of the letter. In the version she saw, she said Snipes, 75, expressed a desire to spend more time...

    The Titanic failure that is the Florida recount has yielded 3,000 missing votes, machine breakdowns, and 80,000 "new" votes in liberal Broward County. But the hits keep on coming. It was reported last week that a team of technicians had to be flown in to fix Palm Beach County's tallying machines. What you didn’t hear was how one technician witnessed an election worker jamming a paper clip into one of the vote-counting machines in order to slow it down. "That, in turn, caused a short circuit." "its technicians had witnessed Palm Beach County elections workers, apparently worried that one of...

The first move must be the immediate firing of the two 100% incompetent and cheating Democrat Party, Election Supervisors in Broward & Palm Beach Counties. The entire state is a waste when it comes to voting and voting controls. the state is filled withou unqualified non-citizen voters and ongoing frauds within the Mail-In, Early voting process. I could come up to Tallahassee and fix the entire mess in one week by using...
  • Almost 3,000 Votes Are Missing in the Florida Recount

    Yahoo News ^ | November 17, 2018
    The recount in Florida has put the state’s election machinery to the test, and it has failed miserably: Almost 3,000 votes have vanished, the New York Times reported, while Florida recounts three state and three local elections that have yet to be called. The Florida secretary of state reported 900 fewer votes than were tallied originally, and that number is expected to balloon by 2,000 more votes when results from Broward County are reported. Although this number of votes would not necessarily swing the election from one candidate to another, it’s certainly enough to cause concern. For example, Palm Beach...

    Broward County’s ballot recount hit yet another snag Saturday with 2,040 ballots lost or misplaced. The county’s eternally beleaguered Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes said they either misplaced, misfiled or mixed in with another stack. One thing she said she was sure of: “The ballots are in this building.” “There would be nowhere else for them to be,” Snipes said. “The ballots are in the building. The ballots are in the building.” With a noon Sunday deadline looming, the three-person Canvassing Board was nonplussed and uncertain what to do.

    LAUDERHILL, Fla. — Embattled Broward Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes is personally overseeing the search within her headquarters here for purportedly missing ballots to account for the 2,040-vote discrepancy in the number of votes cast in her county during the Midterm Elections. The discrepancy came in the difference of total votes registered from the initial machine count and the results from the machine recount numbers reported earlier today. Election workers in Snipes office told Breitbart News that Snipes and her team are scouring the office building, located inside a strip mall in Lauderhill adjacent to a Dunkin’ Donuts and Winn-Dixie grocery...

    Democratic consultant claims he warned party staffers about legality but was ignored. It seems clear at this point that Democrats in Florida were not going to accept defeat in the 2018 midterms and were prepared to do whatever it takes to win, including fraud. In multiple counties, an effort has been underway to “fix” certain mail ballots in the hope that they could turn the tide after the fact. Try to imagine the media’s reaction if Republicans were doing this. Ana Ceballos reports at the Naples Daily News: Democrats planned to use altered forms to fix mail ballots across Florida...

    Let it not be said this wasn’t transparently predictable. After missing the deadline for reporting the official machine ballot count, the hand-count in Broward County had to be halted when officials noticed the staff were counting the wrong ballots today. This comes on the heels of Broward County Supervisor of Elections claiming her critics were racist. It’s how she rolls along; year, after year, after year…. and no-one ever puts a stop to her consistent lack of competence, because racism. Yup, you can’t make this stuff up folks.

    Fresh off its bungled machine recount, Broward County’s second day of manual recounting temporarily stopped about an hour after it began Saturday when lawyers from both political parties pointed out that volunteers were counting the wrong ballots. Hundreds of volunteers spent most of Friday sorting through 32,000 overvotes and undervotes in the Senate race between incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson and Republican Gov. Rick Scott. Broward officials announced Friday night they had finished their manual recount. On Saturday, the volunteers started sorting about 22,000 undervotes and overvotes in the contentious contest for Florida Commissioner of Agriculture. That came to a grinding...

    The New York Times ^ | 16 Nov 2018 | Frances Robles
    Nearly 3,000 votes effectively disappeared during the machine recount of Florida’s midterm races, according to election records, calling into question whether officials relied on a flawed process to settle the outcome of three statewide contests. With extremely narrow gaps separating candidates in the still-undeclared races for both governor and United States Senate, the results of the machine recount of all votes cast in the Nov. 6 election, posted by the Florida secretary of state’s office, showed 900 fewer votes than those reported in the original statewide tally. The discrepancy was expected to grow by an additional 2,000 votes when updated...

    As the hand recount in Florida’s contentious Senate election got underway in Broward County, it quickly became clear that Democrats were headed for a bad day. This is the county where incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson needed to net thousands of new votes on Friday. But minutes into the recount, that became unlikely. Broward County is at the center of Nelson’s hopes for defeating Republican Rick Scott, who currently leads by fewer than 13,000 votes, because there were tens of thousands of ballots in the county that registered no vote in the Senate race. Because Broward is a heavily Democratic county,...

    They said it would be done in time. They said it was going to get done. It was a herculean effort—and they failed. Broward County, Florida—a Democratic bastion—has been a problem child in the ballot counting process of the state’s elections. Palm Beach County, another liberal stronghold, isn’t much better. The county was taking its sweet time counting the ballots. Republican Gov. Rick Scott, who had declared victory over incumbent Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, sued them for their lack of transparency in the process. A judge later found that both counties' operations violated public records laws; they weren’t giving regular...

    TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/AP) — The embattled Broward County Elections Department completed the machine recount that could help determine the next senator and Governor in Florida, one of America’s top political battlegrounds. However, those results were submitted two minutes past the 3 p.m. deadline and will not count. Instead, the initial results submitted last Saturday will be considered the official numbers now.
