Skip to comments.Florida Forced to Recount Votes Because of Broward Blockheads and Palm Beach Pinheads
Posted on 11/10/2018 12:27:43 PM PST by Kaslin
The state of Florida, and therefore the nation, is forced to wait for the verdict of three statewide races thanks to the negligence of Palm Beach and Broward County election officials Susan Bucher and Brenda Snipes. Each county submitted their unofficial election results on Saturday after days of confusion, misplaced ballots, and questionable counting methods but the statewide process will continue due to the close margin of error in Florida's Governor, Senate, and Florida Agriculture Commissioner races.
Now, Florida's Secretary of State has officially ordered a statewide recount.

ABC News Local 10 explains why these races will now go to a recount:
Florida law requires a machine recount when the leading candidates margin is 0.5 percentage points or less, and a hand recount if its 0.25 or less.
- As of noon Saturday, Republican gubernatorial nominee Ron DeSantis had a slight lead against his Democratic rival, Andrew Gillum by 33,684 votes, a margin of .41 percentage points.
- In the Senate race, Republican Gov. Rick Scott was ahead of Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson by 12,562 votes, a margin of .15 percentage points.
- In the race for Florida Agriculture Commissioner, Democrat Nikki Fried was leading Republican rival Matt Caldwell by 5,326 votes, a margin of 0.06 percentage points.
As Matt has reported, both Broward County and Palm Beach County have been plagued by incompetence, peculiarities, and even misplaced provisional ballots which could have a major impact on all three races. Snipes, a long time election official with a poor track record of doing her job, has abdicated any responsibility for failing to properly count her county's votes. Bucher has characterized accusations of mismanagement and voter fraud as questionably racist.
In what many believe is not a coincidental occurrence, the ballots that have been turned in after election day are seemingly shifting the races towards Democratic candidates. Both DeSantis and Scott have pledged to fight in courts any apparent fraud as votes are counted.

A recount is exactly what the election-stealers want...
it gives them a good chance of stealing the election, especially since they’ve now “FOUND” a whole TON of (you can bet your sweet bootie) ALL D ballots
Blockheads and pinheads implies they are stupid and not malicious.
The author calls it negligence. I think is purposeful stealing of the election. One election worker caught other election workers filling out ballots.
Recounts don’t count new ballots just existing ballots
The leads are too big to make up at this point
Mostly they will be recounting the ones that don’t through the machine for whatever reason.
There will be little change in the totals, a few here and few there but not 10s of thousands like the lefties are hoping for.
If there aren't enough for dmeocrats to win - they can always 'find' a few thousand more.
Except for the whistle blower, that whole team needs a jail cell for a decade. That is the only way to stop it in the future.
“Blockheads and pinheads implies they are stupid and not malicious.”
Exactly. They are criminals, and they only thing that makes them ‘blockheads’ and ‘criminals’ is that they weren’t able to avoid getting caught.
Not at this point, recounts are not about finding new ballots, it is about counting existing ballots. That is why we call it a recount.
Rubio and President Trump exposed them and put a stop to their theft by changing out ballots under lock and key and then shuffling them into the existing good ballots. They can’t steal it now.
This is not incompetence. Truckloads of ballots showing up after the vote is over is not incompetence.
People need to go to prison over this. Not one, several. This is too big an operation to be run by one person. It takes a pretty good-sized team, and most of those involved know exactly what they are doing. These are felonies, purposed and planned.
Any recount should be done solely by the State. The county canvassing boards can not be trusted.
“Florida law requires a machine recount”
Um, is a machine able to discern between legit votes and fake ones?
They are NOT PINHEADS. It’s a criminal conspiracy.
No...she DID her job. For the demoncrats.
It is not stupidity. If anyone is a pinhead its that Rick Scott for governing over this ongoing corruption
Of course it’s purposeful
Abortion is on the line in the Senate
With Collins and Murkowsky always being the deciding votes on judges, and now Mittens wanting his days in front of every camera during close votes, the Senate is still being held hostage, even with 53-54 Republicans
Especially after 2016, Democrats don’t intend to let the voters actually decide the outcome ever again
After seeing as few of these blithering idiots on TV, I wonder if some of them even have a GED!! But that said, I can rest assured they have the “How to get public assistance and food stamps, and prove someone else is the baby daddy” gig DOWN!!
This writer does not get it.
They are not blockheads and pinheads.
They are law breaking, vote manufacturing criminals.
