Florida chaos spells trouble for 2020 presidential election

Florida chaos spells trouble for 2020 presidential election

Meanwhile, Sean Hannity, the Fox News host and informal Trump adviser, said in an interview with Scott on his program on Thursday evening that "somebody needs to go to jail" as a result of the delayed vote counts in Broward County because Scott "won this race hands down".

Rick Scott, the Republican candidate for Senate who now leads Democratic opponent Sen.

In fact, the most significant and clear error by Broward County election officials-designing a ballot that may have led more than 20,000 voters in an overwhelmingly Democratic congressional district to not vote in the Senate race at all-almost certainly benefited Scott. The Palm Beach County suit alleges Republican Party representatives weren't allowed "to properly witness" processing of damaged absentee ballots.

Under Florida law, a recount is mandatory if the margin of the winning candidate is less than 0.5 percentage points when the first unofficial count is verified Saturday by Florida's secretary of state. "She did not abide by the law". Was it to cover something up, or was it because she simply didn't care about telling the truth and adhering to the law? In Georgia last week, a federal judge ordered local election officials to stop throwing out ballots based on signature issues.

Protesters have gathered outside the headquarters for the Broward County Supervisor of Elections as the county works to finish counting an unspecified number of votes from the midterm elections. To this point there's been no public disclosure of how many votes are in their possession and how many do we have to count.

The margin is expected to trigger a recount of ballots, which could begin as early as Saturday in counties across the state.

"Well, Miami-Dade did", Weinsier said.

"I thank him for that", the Democratic lawyer said dryly.




The Florida Senate race still hasn't been called and Democrat Sen. Instead she's offered flimsy excuses or nothing.

Lawyers for Snipes argued that requiring such a swift response would interfere with ongoing efforts to finish counting Broward County ballots. Following Scott's lawsuit, Florida Department of Law Enforcement confirmed it will launch investigations into these counties and their respective supervisors, The Hill reported. Trump tweeted in regards to Sen.

Early Voting in #BrowardCounty ended 108 hours ago. But #Broward still hasn't finished & won't disclose how many ballots are left.

In yet a third statewide seat - the Cabinet position of agriculture commissioner - the candidates were separated by 483 votes out of more than 8 million cast - a margin of 0.006 percent. The Republican candidates' leads in both contests are narrowing as votes continue to be counted. And the validity of the newly discovered ballots heavily favoring Democrats should be questioned. That would put it in line with the deadline to verify voters' provisional ballots and would have given Murphy a chance to prove that his signature was valid. We all know what is going on ...

Broward County has a troubled election history and its county's election supervisor, Brenda Snipes - an appointee of Republican Gov. Jeb Bush - has been at the center of several controversies. "[John] Kerry and all these other members that I'd been involved with in representing, and it was really a great moment".

Already, however, national media outlets are working to discredit election integrity fears.

Trump then inexplicably tied the Florida situation to the Russian Federation investigation.

Why are Democrats so sure these missing ballots will hold the key to victory? The lack of transparency raises substantial concerns about the validity of the election process. I'm like, 'This can't be real.' Because all of a sudden it's saying, 'ballot received, invalid signature.' It's the same exact signature I used in the primary, same exact signature I've always used, same exact signature on my driver's license.
