    Legal Insurrection ^ | Saturday, November 17, 2018 at 2:00pm | Mike LaChance
    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...

    The race for Florida Agricultural Commissioner is currently undergoing a manual recount. Last Tuesday, Republican state Rep. Matt Caldwell was deemed the winner and claimed victory at an election watch party in North Fort Myers. But the vote differential between Caldwell and Democrat Nicole “Nikki” Fried was so small, at just 0.16 percent, that the race went to an automatic recount. The Miami Herald reported that at least 113,600 votes will be counted by hand for the race. Caldwell has filed a lawsuit against the Broward County Supervisor of Elections, Brenda Snipes. He joined Sundial to talk about the lawsuit...

    ORLANDO, Fla. - In the days after Election Day, county supervisor of elections offices across Florida are convening canvasing boards to count “challenged" or provisional ballots to make sure there is no uncertainty about the ballot. Election officials give voters provisional ballots for several reasons, including if a voter did not have proper identification at the time they voted or their name was not found on the voter rolls. Provisional ballots are hand-checked by canvasing boards that determine if the voter was eligible to vote at the time their ballot was cast. Boards of election or local election officials usually...

A black Burger King employee who went on a racist rant against a Hispanic couple she assumed was white didn't have it her way after she was terminated from her fast food job last month. The shocking dispute broke out between the employee and a man and woman waiting in a North Miami Beach Burger King drive-thru October 3. The cellphone video has since gone viral. It seems the customers requested a refund for their order after a manager touched her phone while handling their food. The employee, unwillingly to work with the pair, shamed...

    Miniature horses may be allowed, but squirrels? Not so fast. A wheelchair-bound woman in Orlando was thrown off a Frontier Airlines flight for refusing to part with her so-called “emotional support” squirrel. Frontier Airlines Flight 1612, bound for Cleveland, was set to depart Tuesday night when a “situation” developed onboard. A passenger had indicated that an emotional support pet would accompany her when booking her reservation, but never indicated what type of animal that would be. Turns out it was a squirrel. Squirrels, according to Frontier’s guidelines on emotional support animals, are not permitted onboard: We do not accept unusual...

Yet last weekend, the Miami Herald endorsed her for the GOP nomination in the Tuesday primary out of a field of nine candidates. In an interview, Rodriguez Aguilera said she is grateful for the endorsement and that her tale of kidnapping by aliens does...
