Wild scene as fed-up Floridians show up to Broward election office demanding answers – and justice

The scene in Florida continued to escalate in the wake of accusations and a voter fraud lawsuit filed against Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes by Governor Rick Scott.

Crowds gathered outside the Broward elections office where the canvassing board was preparing to meet on Thursday, chanting “Lock her up!”

Snipes is under fire for alleged election rigging as the county’s election office, in a Democratic bastion, suddenly “found” 78,000 new votes since Election Day.

As the state faces looming recounts in key races after razor-thin margins separated candidates on Tuesday, questions are swirling about Florida’s election laws and whether, as Republicans contend, Democrats are working overtime to “steal” the election. The hashtag #StopTheSteal is accompanying social media discussions as ballots were recounted and inconsistencies revealed.

Progressive candidate Tim Canova joined other voices pointing out the questionable results coming from the southern portion of the Sunshine State, calling Snipes, a Democrat, a “serial election rigger.”

Protesters began to arrive in force at the Broward elections office Friday, demanding action against Snipes and Democrats and the “lack of transparency,” as called out by Scott, whose US Senate race against incumbent Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson is facing a recount.

“The Supervisor is unwilling to disclose records revealing how many electors voted, how many ballots have been canvassed, and how many ballots remain to be canvassed,” Scott’s lawsuit alleged.

Hunter Pollack, who lost his sister Meadow in February when she was gunned down at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, urged others to join the stand against corruotion.

The Miami Herald’s Alex Harris reported that Snipes refused to take questions Thursday even though she had promised to do so after a meeting.

Angry Floridians are demanding answers and refusing to stay silent as the races in question all just happen to be challenged by Democrats.

A woman in a T-shirt supporting Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum showed up and was shouted down by the crowd. The governor’s race between Gillum and Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis is heading to a machine recount as 0.44 percentage points separated the two as of Thursday night, with DeSantis in the lead, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Meanwhile the questionable actions in Broward continue to be under scrutiny.

“Here’s what makes no sense: Where did the 70,000 ballots come from in Broward County? Where did the 15,000 ballots come from in Palm Beach County?” Scott said Friday in Naples, according to Florida Today. “So you’re not telling us. I’ve asked for FDLE to do an investigation. I mean, it just, it makes no sense. We have to be naive to believe that they’re not trying to steal the election.”

As protesters were kept outside Friday afternoon, lawyers for Republicans and Democrats were arriving for a scheduled Canvassing Board meeting.

“I will not stand idly by while unethical liberals try to steal an election,” Scott said at a press conference Thursday night at the governor’s mansion.
