Yes, isn’t it funny that they NEVER seem to find any ballots “laying around” that increase the republican’s vote total?
Why is that?
Maybe it’s because THE REPUBLICANS DON’T CHEAT!!!!!
We go through the same crap every election cycle, and it’s about time we took some serious steps to address it.
Please check out my prior blog from November 5, 2018: “It’s not “just” one vote. It’s MY one vote!” for my ideas on that subject. I also have numerous earlier blogs that discuss the issue of voting as well, which are all worth checking out.
It is now three days after the midterm elections, and some states are still counting ballots and finding ballots.
In Arizona, Democrat candidate Kyrsten Sinema has suddenly taken a 9,600 vote lead over Republican Martha McSally late Thursday, and they say there are still some 400,000 votes left to count! McSally was ahead by 17,000 votes as of early Thursday.
In Florida, Republican Senate candidate and current governor Rick Scott complained, “Late Tuesday night, our win was projected to be around 57,000 votes. By Wednesday morning, that lead dropped to 38,000. By Wednesday evening, it was around 30,000. This morning, it was around 21,000. Now, it is down to 15,000!”
Scott continued, saying: “On election night, Broward County said there were 634,000 votes cast. At 1 a.m. today, there were 695,700 ballots cast on Election Day. At 2:30 p.m. today, the number was up to 707,223 ballots cast on Election Day. And we just learned, that the number has increased to 712,840 ballots cast on Election Day. In Palm Beach County, there are 15,000 new votes found since election night!”
“So, it has been over 48 hours since the polls closed and Broward and Palm Beach Counties are still finding and counting ballots, and the Supervisors, Brenda Snipes and Susan Bucher, cannot seem to say how many ballots still exist or where these ballots came from, or where they have been.”
The state of Georgia seems to be experiencing this strange democrat ballot phenomenon in their governor’s race as well.
Armies of lawyers, for both sides, are poised and at the ready in all three states.
This whole voting business should not be this hard people!
Republican Senate candidate Rick Scott is concerned about possible “rampant fraud” in the election, and he filed lawsuits late Thursday against the top election officials in two heavily Democratic counties, as they continue to report “new votes” and three top races in the state appear headed for recounts.
According to Gregg Re of Fox News, “In their lawsuit against Broward County, Scott and the National Republican Senatorial Committeee (NRSC) allege that officials there are hiding critical information about the number of votes cast and counted. And in a parallel suit against Palm Beach County, Scott and the NRSC charge that the election supervisor there illegally used her own judgment to determine voter intent when reviewing damaged or incorrectly filled-out absentee ballots, while refusing to allow impartial witnesses to monitor the process.”
“I will not stand idly by while unethical liberals try to steal an election,” Scott said at a press conference outside the Governor’s Mansion.
Republican Senator, Marco Rubio, has tweeted about “alleged incompetence if not outright complicity by Florida officials,” while charging that “Democratic lawyers were descending on the state in a calculated attempt to change the results to try and steal several statewide races.”
Those are strong words.
Also late Thursday, President Trump announced on Twitter that “Law Enforcement is looking into another big corruption scandal having to do with Election Fraud in #Broward and Palm Beach.”
A mandatory recount now appears imminent not only in Scott’s race, but also in the gubernatorial race between Democrat Andrew Gillum and Republican Ron DeSantis.
Scott’s first emergency complaint accuses Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes of being “unwilling to disclose records revealing how many electors voted, how many ballots have been canvassed, and how many ballots remain to be canvassed,” and charges that the uncertainty “raises substantial concerns about the validity of the election process.”
The NRSC specifically alleges that Snipes is in violation of the Florida Constitution and the Florida Public Records Act. They demand an emergency hearing, as well as a court order requiring Snipes to turn over information about ballots in Broward County.
Scott’s complaint against Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher, meanwhile, alleges first that officials there illegally refused to allow Republicans, or any witnesses, to monitor the county’s handling of damaged absentee ballots.
“Even more alarmingly,” Scott additionally claims, Bucher “failed to allow the Palm Beach County Canvassing Board” to determine, as required by law, which damaged or improperly filled-out absentee ballots were valid and how the voters of those ballots had intended to vote. Instead, Scott and the NRSC argue, Bucher and her staff simply used their own judgment when determining voters’ intent.
Senator Rubio referred to the “slow drip” of tens of thousands of additional ballots that were reported throughout the day Thursday, most of which were favorable to several Democratic candidates. Rubio said those late disclosures violated Florida election law, which necessitates that mail-in and early voting ballots be counted within 30 minutes of polls closing.
“Bay County was hit by a Cat 4 Hurricane just 4 weeks ago, yet managed to count votes and submit timely results,” Rubio wrote. “Yet over 41 hours after polls closed #Broward elections office is still counting votes?”
Rubio and Scott both made it clear they have no confidence in Snipes’ integrity.
“A U.S. Senate seat & a statewide cabinet officer are now potentially in the hands of an elections supervisor with a history of incompetence & of blatant violations of state & federal laws,” Rubio wrote, linking to a Miami Herald article describing several scandals that have gripped Broward County’s Elections Department.
Earlier this year, a judge found that Snipes had illegally destroyed ballots in a 2016 congressional contest, leading the secretary of state’s office to assign election monitors to supervise her.
At his Thursday press conference, Scott outlined some of Snipes’ troubled history.
“In 2016, Brenda Snipes’ office posted election results half an hour before polls closed, a violation of election law,” Scott said. “That same year, her office was sued for leaving amendments off of ballots. In 2014, Brenda Snipes’ fellow Democrats accused her of individual and systemic breakdowns that made it difficult for voters to cast regular ballots. All Floridians should be concerned about that.”
“I think the problems are blown out of proportion,” Snipes said in October, in an interview with The Miami Herald. “Broward is nitpicked to the bone. Other places have the same problems, different problems. It’s just that they are not spotlighted like we are.”
Broward County election officials did not return Fox News’ multiple requests for comment at this time.
Meanwhile, Democrat Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York fired back on Twitter at Trump saying: “In a democracy, no one—not even the President—can prevent the lawful counting of votes. We will not allow him or anyone else to steal this election.”
Say what Chuck?
Did you say someone might be trying to steal an election?
Hey Chuck, have you ever heard the saying, “When you point the finger of blame at someone else, three other fingers are pointing back at you?”
Shame on all of these democrats.
When the day comes that the American people fail to have any confidence at all in our election process at all, that will be the day our country will dramatically change…, and I’m afraid to say that day is not far off unless significant changes are made.
