Skip to comments.Time to Disenfranchise Broward and Palm Beach Counties
Posted on 11/11/2018 8:24:52 AM PST by Kaslin
Many people I know enjoy watching movies multiple times: from Gone With The Wind and Jurassic Park to Field of Dreams or La La Land, if it comes on TV theyll watch it. A harmless vice time-wasting but no lasting damage,
However, across Americaand around the globewe are all facing the prospect of a rerun we dont want to experience: yet another stupid, protracted, over-lawyered election recount drama in the state of Florida. Unlike watching Batman Forever a few too many times, this rerun will Make America UNgreat Again by turning Florida and the USA into an international joke.
Three statewide contestsincluding Floridas closely watched race for the U.S. Senate and the battle for Floridas governors mansionwere thrown into official recounts on Saturday. Not because of any rampant fraud or malfeasance by voters or officials statewide. And not because of hacking or manipulation from foreign governments.
No. The reason we are again being forced to relive the nightmare and embarrassment first seen in the 2000 Bush/Gore recount (which took the U.S. Supreme court to resolve) and which in 2016 led to lawsuits over mishandling of ballots in a Congressional race is a familiar one: election officials in Palm Beach and Broward counties. Poster-child for the recurring incompetence in timely, accurate tabulation of ballots isonce againBrenda Snipes, Broward supervisor of elections.
As Lou Dobbs observed on a Salem Radio Network commentary: Rather than chasing phony leads about Russians interfering in our elections, the FBI and Federal authorities might be wiser to investigate vote tampering by elections officials in Broward and Palm Beach County.
While Lou is on-target, such probes would inevitably just add to the circus by drawing-out even more lawyers than the ones already scurrying into Florida like rats in heat.
What this latest totally unnecessary emergency requires is out of the boxto wit, radicalthinking. It is time to throw out ALL ballots cast November 6th in Palm Beach County and Broward County. Every one. Even Palm Beach County resident Rush Limbaughs. Whether cast for Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians or write-ins. Then use the accurately counted, professionally handled ballots from Floridas remaining 65 counties to determine who won last weeks election for the next U.S. Senator, Governor and State Agriculture Commissioner.
This, of course, would elicit yowls from intelligent people (as well as from MSNBC hosts) that ALL voters in those two populous counties have thus been disenfranchised and they ALL should file lawsuits.
Which is true. And they should.
The lawsuits should name as defendants the specific parties responsible for ballot irregularities ranging from idiotic butterfly ballots to the hanging chads anda few days agothe Provisional Ballots box a teacher suddenly found at Sunshine Elementary School in Miramar. The lawsuits should be filed against elections officials in Broward and Palm Beach counties.
My guess is that once these officials are held personally responsible for the repeated (to be charitable) bungling of the completed ballots which county residents had every right to believe would be accurately counted, two things would likely happen: most of the current buffoons in those offices would be replaced, andgoing forwardelections in Broward County and Palm Beach County would not cause Floridas statewide winners to be held up by weeks of partisan wrangling because a ballot was misplaced or dropped off the back of a truck or burned up when a spark flew out of a toaster. Thats what we dont even accept from elections in remote villages of Third World countries, much less in two of the most populous counties in Florida.
Full disclosure: I do not personally know any of the officials involved, nor do I bear any of them ill will or impugn their motives or integrity. Brenda Snipes in Broward County, for example, may be a perfectly wonderful person. But the preponderance of the evidence available to us as laymenespecially the repeated inability over many years to swiftly and accurately complete tabulation of election resultsleads me to believe she and other election officials have long ago outworn their welcome.
When a proud office-seeker like Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillumwho graciously conceded Tuesday evening to his rival Ron DeSantis after the final results were announcedhas to look like a fool by unconceding on Friday once it turns out all the votes have STILL not been counted almost a week later, it is well past time to accept this as business as usual.
Disenfranchising this years ballots in Broward and Palm Beach counties will resolve the 2018 statewide races quickly, and ensure that future balloting will be overseen by competent, qualified elections supervisors rather than the current rogues gallery of political hacks.
Dis enfranchise is not the right word. The State should remove her and appoint a State level bureaucrat to fix the problem.
Time to Disenfranchise Broward and Palm Beach Counties.
Never happen even though they are repeatedly corrupt. Takes cojones to act...something most politicians lack.
Agree that disenfranchise is not the right word. Some phrases apply:
You reap what you sow
The voters allowed those incompetents to control their ballots, the voters are therefore ultimately responsible.
But how does one find a state level bureaucRAT who is NOT? (a RAT)
Add Los Angeles county to the list just as crooked.
i would not accept their votes now, they’ve contaminated their results with a lot of illegals... AND by a criminal ballot counting racket....including where the vote counters are reportedly themselves filling out many fake ballots...
this is the best possible result given these terribly- unfortunate circumstances
(Just as soon as a cleaned-up counting system is installed there, like HOPEFULLY for the next election, we should let their votes count again)
They will win ....there 27 for 27
The 1960 election was stolen....Chicago....
2 reasons why it won’t happen... One, she’s black; second, she’s female.
They will win ....there 27 for 27
The 1960 election was stolen....Chicago....
You maybe forgot about Bush v Gore. So...26 for 27.
In Florida the state is controlled by Republicans at least at this point. Thats why i said state level. If
One, shes black; second, shes female.
Yep, untouchable. This particular demographic has become a particularly racist, nasty and hateful group.
I wonder why Bondi has not taken some action.
I know the feds have little power over states in these matters, but this does look like a matter for the state AG.
Were going to need to block the urban vote but now it is suburbs too.
As I understand it, 27 for 27 is for the years since 2000.
If that is correct, your numbers would be 27 for 28.
My,. what a coincidence. 27 coincidences in a row. And you don’t believe in coincidences?
<><>ALL voters in the two counties have now been disenfranchised

<><> name as defendants the specific parties responsible for (a) ballot irregularities, (b) the Provisional Ballots box
a teacher miraculously found at Miramar's Sunshine Elementary School, and, (C) the ones in the back of the rental truck.
<><> Last but not least, the State should remove Brenda Snipes and appoint a State-level bureaucrat to proceed.
At this point that is the only valid choice in both FL, GA and AZ.
This is an active crime scene-----put up the yellow tape.
