    As Cortney noted, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel has been suspended by Gov. Ron DeSantis. This was expected. Israel had told staff prior to this announcement that this would most likely happen.  And Gov. DeSantis made it official. Israel, who has been criticized for how his department responded to the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school last February, also took part in the CNN town hall event, where he slammed the National Rifle Association. The event was held days after the shooting. Now, with his suspension, Israel has blamed the NRA, and said this was all about politics.  "There was...

    Flanked by members of a local African-American faith community, a defiant Scott Israel defended himself against allegations of incompetence on Friday and made clear he would fight his suspension on any front necessary whether before the Florida Senate or in state or federal court. Israel, 62, a two-term Democratic sheriff of Broward County, was suspended by Gov. Ron DeSantis three days after the new Republican governor was sworn into office. DeSantis cited a list of failures enumerated by a state panel that investigated BSOs response to the Feb. 14, 2018, shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.

    The father of a student shot and killed during the Parkland school massacre has been appointed to the state Board of Education, Gov. Rick Scott announced Friday evening. For 52-year-old Andy Pollack, it is all about accountability. That word has haunted me since my daughter was murdered, Pollack, of Coral Springs, said Friday night. His daughter, Meadow, 18, a senior, was shot nine times during the Valentines Day shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Meadows body was found in a third-floor hallway. She was lying on top of the body of 14-year-old freshman Cara Loughran, as if protecting her....

    Broward County incident reports and photo evidence prove conclusively that Broward County election workers broke the law in numerous instances during the 2018 election. As Broward election supervisor Brenda Snipes fights to hold onto her pension, the conduct of poll workers is coming under scrutiny, including a poll worker at Lauderhill mall, where Snipes office is based. The incident reports describe poll workers telling voters how to vote, touching their ballots, handing out Democratic flyers to voters, allowing people to bring Democrat advertisements inside and to use their phones, and encouraging people to fill out blank spaces on ballots at...

    Gov. Rick Scott late Friday suspended embattled Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes even though Snipes had already agreed to step down from her post in early January. Scott replaced Snipes with his former general counsel even though Peter Antonacci has no elections experience. Snipes responded by rescinding her previous resignation and will now be "fighting this to the very end," her attorney said during a Saturday news conference. "We believe these actions are malicious," said Burnadette Norris-Weeks, who said that Broward County voters should be concerned about what Scott is trying to do in the Democratic stronghold...

    The rise of Rahim Hassanally, a prominent young dealer in California, may be coming to a bitter end, after seven of his dealerships abruptly shuttered following months of financial woes. The single store of Momentum Auto Group that remains open after the November closures, sources say, is Momentum Chevrolet, which is majority-owned by General Motors. The dealership group, with stores in Fairfield, San Jose and Vallejo in the San Francisco Bay area, ranked 124th on Automotive News' list of the Top 150 Dealership Groups in the U.S. last year, with 7,753 new-vehicle and 4,749 used-vehicle retail sales in 2017.

    What you see Trump and Rick Scott and other Republicans doing here is counting on the power of racism to serve as fact," said an Emory University professor. Most weeks the Broward County Elections Office, nestled in the Lauderhill Mall just off US 441 in Lauderhill, Florida, isnt the kind of place that draws a crowd. But on Election Day earlier this month, as Bob Henry Sr. stood in the parking lot closest to the county office, what he saw looked like something just short of a mob. The parking lot had become a locus for the frustrated, the distrustful,...

    You supposedly wont 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, Saturdays 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...

    It's a long-agonized-over machine recount total delivered two minutes too late. But there's nothing ironic about it -- this is, after all, Florida's Broward County, which has been plagued with issues in its vote-counting efforts for years. Given that history, it was unsurprising -- but still galling to volunteers -- when the director of elections here revealed that the county had submitted its machine recount data two minutes after the state-mandated 3 p.m. Thursday deadline. The secretary of state's office did not accept the new numbers and so, after days of painstaking work, Broward's count Thursday remained the same as...

    Broward County once again proves that incompetence and ineptitude are the heart of their election process. Throughout this whole process, the county, a Democratic bastion, and it’s equally disastrous and liberal neighbor, Palm Beach County, have made a mockery of the 2018 election with their inability to count the friggin’ ballots. Republican Gov. Rick Scott had to file lawsuits in order to shed some light into their ballot counting processes, which a judge later found to be in violation of public records laws. They wouldn’t disclose how many outstanding ballots were left. Scott had declared victory over incumbent Sen. Bill...

    Fresh off its bungled machine recount, Broward Countys 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...

    There has been plenty of speculation on voter fraud in Florida. Much like every year. Well speculate no more. Marco Rubio provides proof that the Democrat Party committed voter fraud in the state of Florida. Just two days after the election Rubio called out Broward County when there were over 80,00 new ballots manufactured after Election Day. Now Rubio reports on the planned voter fraud by the Democrats after Election Day. Democrat leaders in Florida directed their staff to shear the altered election forms in order to fix improper absentee ballots. Keep in mind this was all after the deadline.
