The Florida Midterms were an embarrassment. The Election Supervisors in Broward County and Palm Beach need to not only be fired, they need to be prosecuted. They should have been replaced when they originally found a need for a recount. There were clear cases of mismanagement from across the board. Officials allowing non-citizens to vote and worse election officials engaging in fraud.
“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 voters the altered forms to fix improper absentee ballots after the Nov. 5 deadline. Democratic party leaders provided staffers with copies of a form, known as a “cure affidavit,” that had been modified to include an inaccurate Nov. 8 deadline.
One Palm Beach Democrat said in an interview the idea was to have voters fix and submit as many absentee ballots as possible with the altered forms in hopes of later including them in vote totals if a judge ruled such ballots were allowed.”
But Democrats still had the nerve to say that people were bullying Bucher and Snipes. The supervisors that failed to do their jobs when 65 other counties were fine. At least when it came to reporting in and finishing their counts on time.
The votes were supposed to be in and counted by now and they are going to finish on the 17th. There were some close races, understandably. But with all of the rumors you have to wonder if that closeness was fabricated.
