    TALLAHASSEE — A day after Florida's election left top state races too close to call, a Democratic party leader directed staffers and volunteers to share altered election forms with voters to fix signature problems on absentee ballots after the state's deadline. The altered forms surfaced in Broward, Santa Rosa, Citrus and Okaloosa counties and were reported to federal prosecutors to review for possible election fraud as Florida counties complete a required recount in three top races. But an email obtained by the USA TODAY NETWORK-Florida shows that Florida Democrats were organizing a broader statewide effort beyond those counties to give...

    It's been more than one week since polls closed on Election Night in Florida, with tight national races and recount efforts again spotlighting the Sunshine State. In Broward and Palm Beach Counties, there have been a slew of ballot issues. Election officials in both counties have a history of incompetence and corruption. Broward County Election Supervisor Brenda Snipes was convicted for illegally destroying ballots in 2016 and has a long record of questionable practices. Broward County Supervisor of Elections, Brenda Snipes, has a long history of fraud. Here are just some headlines from the past few years about misconduct, and outright violation...

    Overnight ruling on 1 of 7 lawsuits over Florida's contentious election. TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - In one of seven election-related lawsuits pending, a federal judge has ruled that the state must give voters whose mismatched signatures disqualified their provisional and mail-in ballots until 5 p.m. Saturday at 5 p.m. to correct those signature problems -- extending the deadline by two days. The ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Mark Walker comes in a suit brought by U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson's campaign and Democratic Party officials, who are looking to the courts to help them find votes to narrow the margin in...
  • BREAKING: Judge’s Ruling Adds Thousands More Votes In Florida Recount

    11/15/2018 6:29:13 AM PST · by Liberty7732 · 68 replies
    In a victory for the campaign hopes of U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, a federal judge has ordered all of Florida’s elections officials to give nearly 4,000 voters — or more than, no one is sure — whose ballots were rejected over mismatched signatures until Saturday to fix the problem and for their votes to count. Judge Mark Walker ruled early today that apparently all of the state’s elections offices have wrongly, or unconstitutionally, applied the state law governing how voters can fix rejected signatures on absentee and provisional ballots. There were a known 3,700 ballots rejected in the Midterm election...

    TALLAHASSEE — A federal court judge on Thursday ruled that thousands of voters whose votes weren’t counted because of issues with their signatures on their mail-in or provisional ballots have two more days to challenge the decision to reject their votes. The order from U.S. District Court judge Mark Walker came hours before a 3 p.m. deadline for counties to report the results of a machine recount for the U.S. Senate, governor and agriculture commissioner contests, throwing more uncertainty over a process that faces a spate of legal challenges...[snip].....

    A federal judge stated that he is not likely to allow election officials in Florida to automatically count thousands of mail-in ballots that have signatures that do not match those on file as deadline day for the Florida recount has arrived as counties across the state must have ballots re-tabulated by 3 p.m. Thursday afternoon. A big point of contention for incumbent Democrat U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and Democrats, mail-in ballots that have signatures that do not match those on file have been thrown out. "So I ask each of you, just consider whether or not you'd want you ballot...

    Attorney for Bikers for Trump leader Chris Cox says 15 tags could prove tampering with 37,500 ballots This is what democracy looks like. Bikers for Trump leader Chris Cox bustled through the throng of protesters at the Broward County elections office at the heart of the Florida recount fandango, drawing attention to colored zip-tie tags found on the ground near the building’s loading dock. Mr. Cox and a crowd of Republican activists are convinced that the 15 red and orange tags were cut off ballot boxes before the votes reached the election office, which could be a violation of state...

    RIVIERA BEACH, Fla. - Palm Beach County's ballot-counting machines are working again after mechanical issues caused by overheating delayed the ongoing statewide recount, the elections chief said Wednesday — but the county may still miss Florida's Thursday deadline. "We're doing everything in our human power possible to make this happen," election supervisor Susan Bucher told reporters when asked if she would make the deadline. Bucher has faced a growing chorus of criticism, including from President Donald Trump, but she was defiant when asked about calls for her resignation. "I'm working as hard as I can," she said. "You can see...

    The gunman accused of killing 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida is facing new charges after he allegedly assaulted a prison guard. According to Fox News, the now 20-year-old Nikolas Cruz was being escorted by Sgt. Raymond Beltran who told him to stop dragging his sandals as he walked. The alleged shooter responded by flipping off the officer and then slapping him in the face. "Beltran indicated that he and Cruz then got into a physical altercation that resulted in Beltran going to the ground and Cruz taking Beltran's conductive electronic weapon from him," the...

    A Florida man was arrested after police found enough explosive material to "blow up the block" when they searched his home. Officers received a tip that 37-year-old Jared E. Coburn was building bombs, and at his home they discovered mason jars filled with triacetone triperoxide, or TATP, an explosive compound using by terror groups like ISIS. Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood said that the volatile explosive powder, which is used by terrorist organizations to make what they call the "Mother of Satan" bombs, had to be detonated underground at a nearby field. Coburn told police that he was making fireworks,...

    Gillum, Nelson in court demanding ballot from non-American be counted. Stunning. A transcript of a court hearing on the voting in Florida reveals a startling fact. The campaigns of Democrat Andrew Gillum, the gubernatorial nominee, and Democrat Bill Nelson, the incumbent U.S. Senator are both demanding in a court hearing that the vote of a non-American citizen be counted. Gillum and Nelson lost their respective races to Republican Congressman Ron DeSantis and Governor Rick Scott. As it stands at the moment, both Scott and DeSantis have the lead but are hemorrhaging votes as evidence piles up that local officials are...

    A Florida school district allowed a self-described transgender female student regular access to the boys’ locker room, with no advance warning to the boys or their parents. The first time she walked in, she caught “boys (literally) with their pants down, causing them embarrassment and concern by the fact that they had been observed changing by an obvious girl,” says a complaint letter to Pasco County School District from Liberty Counsel, a pro-bono constitutional law firm. With a “gag order,” school administrators forbade teachers from talking about the change, and ordered a male P.E. teacher to supervise the potentially undressed...

    The brazenness of the theft is astounding. Democrat election officials in Arizona and Florida, not finding the will of the people to their liking, are manufacturing a will of the people of their own. In Florida, they’re miraculously finding ballots -- overwhelmingly votes for Democrats, of course -- that were somehow inexplicably overlooked on election day. In Arizona, the Republican Party has accused Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes of “premeditated destruction of evidence” leading to “voting irregularities.” The Democrats are determined to overturn the Republicans’ gain last Tuesday of two Senate seats, and are in the process of stealing...

    At an impromptu press conference Saturday afternoon, U.S. Congressman Matt Gaetz stood on the back of a moving van filled with boxes labeled “pallets of ballots” and called for the removal of Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes. Gaetz said the boxes upon boxes of paper behind him on the truck approximated the more than 80,859 ballots that “materialized out of thin air” in Broward County and were added to statewide vote totals since election day. The Broward County Supervisor of Elections has not explained where the votes came from. In response, Florida Governor Rick Scott filed a lawsuit...

Then AFTER game lawyers for losing team get a judge to order rules changed so that last second field goals are only 1 point,” he said on Twitter. “Well that’s how democrat lawyers plan to steal #Florida election.” “For example, #Florida law requires that the voter signatures on...
