Rubio warns that Democrat lawyers are now asking judges to change Florida election laws AFTER the fact

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., was among the first and loudest voices in calling attention to the shenanigans going on in South Florida following last weeks midterm election, where Democrats lost the race for governor and the U.S. Senate.

With extracurricular counting having closed the gap between winner and loser and lawsuits flying to circumvent Florida election law, Rubio took advantage of his love of football to explain on social media “how democrat lawyers plan to steal Florida election.”

“Imagine if NFL team was trailing 24-22 but in final seconds hits a 3 pt kick to win. Then AFTER game lawyers for losing team get a judge to order rules changed so that last second field goals are only 1 point…Well that’s how democrat lawyers plan to steal Florida election,” Rubio tweeted.

He then explained one tactic currently in play as desperate Democrats scrape to find every single vote possible.

“For example, Florida law requires that the voter signatures on mail ballots match the signature of the voter, but Dem lawyers are asking a judge to throw that law out & force Florida to count ballots with signatures that don’t match the voter signature on file,” Rubio noted.

Another tactic involves “undervotes,” which are ballots not counted because of unclear markings by the voter.

“Florida law requires a manual recount of “undervotes” in close races & provides a clear standard for determining whether a voter intended to vote for a candidate,” the lawmaker tweeted. “Now Dem lawyers want a judge to order Florida to ignore this intent standard when reviewing ‘undervotes.'”

Rubio then put it all into proper perspective.

“In short, Dem lawyers came to Florida to get judges to change Florida elections laws, AFTER the election. That isn’t a strategy to win an election, that is a strategy to steal an election,” he concluded

All 67 counties in Florida face a Thursday deadline to complete a recount given how close several races were and Sen. Bill Nelson’s campaign just filed a federal lawsuit to extend the deadline — Republican Gov. Rick Scott holds a slim lead over the three-term incumbent Democrat.

The same two counties at the center of the extracurricular counting controversy are struggling to meet this deadline.

In Palm Beach County, ballot machines are overheating and breaking down, and in Broward County, where Nelson was able to close a gap from about 60,000 votes all the way down to just over 12,000, was delayed until Tuesday in getting started.

Just as was the case last Tuesday, the other 65 counties seem to be doing far better at tabulating the recount.

President Donald Trump took to Twitter to praise Rubio for his diligence amid all the irregularities taking place in Florida.

Much to the angst of secular progressives, Sen. Rubio posts Bible verses on his Twitter feed almost daily and Tuesday’s offering may be the most appropriate ever.

Citing Ecclesiastes 1:15: “What is crooked cannot be made straight, and you cannot count what is not there.”
