GOP Senate candidate Rick Scott files bombshell
lawsuits accusing Dem Florida election
officials of trying to ´steal the election´

Fox News, by Gregg Re

Posted By:Pluperfect, 11/9/2018 4:31:29 AM

Accusing Democrats of conducting a coordinated effort to "steal" elections in a campaign of possibly "rampant fraud," Republican Senate candidate Rick Scott filed explosive lawsuits late Thursday against the top election officials in two heavily Democratic counties, as they continue to report new votes and three major races in the state appear headed for recounts. 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,

In 2018 Broward County Supervisor of Elections, Brenda Snipes,was found guilty by a circuit Judge of illegally destroying August 2016 ballots.
Snipes claimed the boxes of ballots were "mislabeled..the Judge didn´t agree.
Why was she allowed to remain in her position?

This was a no brainer, that Florida would engage in massive voter fraud. Now we have to go through the whole hanging chad thing again, only this time, electronically. When voting machines switch your vote from republican to democrat, there must at some point be a reckoning.

I´ve said it before, ALL VOTES should be counted by midnight on election day. ALL MAIL IN VOTES should be counted FIVE DAYS BEFORE the election. ANY votes not properly marked should be destroyed (No FL, Brenda can´t just decide herself what that voter "INTENDED"). This must stop! I live in Florida and I am really disgusted that Broward and Palm Beach counties, ONCE AGAIN, are claiming "found"Ballots DAYS after the election is called. Their Election chairs should be in Jail!

These suits need to be civil suits brought against the election officials themselves, not against the jurisdiction they work for. Putting the heat on the election officials where they stand to go to jail for election fraud, if they committed fraud, would have the desired effect.

Remember Al Franken? He lost his election. The dems kept finding lost boxes of ballots in bathrooms and closets and Al Capone´s vault (sorry wrong state) until he had just enough to win.

This is what they do. They will always find lost ballots in a close race. We need to understand and plan for this fraud.

BTY, If Florida law says all ballots must be counted within 30 hours then any box of lost ballots not counted by then are invalid!

Time and time again elections have been stolen by Democrats by continuing to find, produce, and count votes until they win. Washington State(several times), MN with Al Franken (who found them in his trunk) and of course Broward and Palm Beach counties where they feel they can turn any election around for Democrats since the 2000 election. It´s like Chicago Lake County when they call the election supervisor for their count and they respond "How many votes do you need?". This in not America. I am so angry this is happening here and it appears to be happening in Arizona.

Broward County actually has an elections supervisor who was convicted of voter fraud and still has her job. The Florida state legislature can fix that little problem.

Yes, it´s happening in AZ and Sinema has now pulled ahead by 0.1%. There are 2 main problems:
1. The laws are inconsistent from county to county and some use vague wording like "votes must be counted in a TIMELY manner." Define TIMELY. Good luck on that one.
2. Unfortunately the areas with as yet uncounted ballots are traditionally Demo strongholds, breaking 57%/42% in favor of Sinema.
AZ GOP has filed lawsuits demanding consistency in voting laws. Perhaps those lawsuits should´ve been filed BEFORE the election?

To borrow a phrase from Illinois politics, "The election is not over until Broward County is finished counting its votes". If ever there was a moment for the Republicans to clamp down on voter fraud, well, they should have gotten the darn message in 2000... This voter fraud is rampant on the Democrats´ side:
it extends through the social media platforms and the whole system is tilted against conservatives... The only reason the Democrats don´t want voter ID is because it clamps down on one manner of their cheating ...Chris Kobach is out of work -- appoint an "Election Security Czar". The Democrats love Czars ...

Years ago when I was living in Florida I was talking to someone who told me that the night of an election, by muistake he opened a wrong door at a polling location and saw people filling out bogus votes and stuffing ballot boxes. As we know, this is a something the Dems are known to be very good at. Unless they have something to lose by being hit with a heavy fine, a law suit or a serious conviction.
I´m hoping that as the acting governor Scott has enough authority and power to cut through this dirty Democrat ploy. He certainly has the toughness and is not easily intimidated and that´s why he´ll be a great Senator.

I am all for required voter ID. However, if the Dems are going to manufacture votes -- or "find" votes -- requiring voter ID still won´t ensure integrity.

If election officials are sloppy about following the law regarding the counting and collecting of ballots, they need to face criminal prosecution.

Some sloppiness may be from incompetence. Other sloppiness may be from fraud. Either way, there need to be consequences -- like fines and jail.

Collecting and counting ballots are serious matters.

Either we fight this or we are done. Democrats desperately want to take the Senate and this is the way they have chosen. They do this because they know Republicans will not fight back tooth and nail. When you are dealing with these dirty rotten cheats, you give no quarter. You fight until you cannot fight anymore.

The Presidency is at stake. Destroying President Trump is their goal and they will do it if Republicans are not prepared to fight tough and for as long as it takes. The President has fought for the American people for two years and now its the Republicans turn to fight this battle because he is their objective. Protect our warrior President, Fight the good fight, Republicans!

Beto O´Rourke is lost. The former Democratic congressman, who unsuccessfully challenged Ted Cruz in last year´s election, has spent the last few weeks in a confused and melancholy state. Something possessed him to share images from a recent dental cleaning, perhaps the grossest introduction of a potential presidential candidate in the nation´s history. He gave an interview to the Washington Post where the only specific plank in his immigration platform was opposition to President Trump´s border wall. In the same interview, he mused that the Constitution may no longer apply to the United States, since we´re an "empire"

The defeat in Parliament of Prime Minister May’s compromise with Europe opens the way to true independence for Britain. It presents the chance for a redemption of the referendum of June 2016, when Britons were asked “Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?” and 51.89% answered “Leave the European Union.” It is too soon to declare mission accomplished. The future can still be lost, but Britain just took a giant step in the right direction. It makes clear that Britain’s future lies with a “no deal” Brexit.

I appreciate David’s response to my column on the FBI counterintelligence investigation of Trump, but unfortunately don’t find it persuasive. David emphasizes how the regulations governing a counterintelligence investigation focus on the activity of the foreign power. Yeah, sure. But that’s why the Times story was so explosive. It reported on a counterintelligence investigation of Trump himself, who is obviously not a foreigner, but the duly elected president of the United States. The Times story says that the FBI feared Trump might have been a witting or unwitting agent of the Russians.

The internet expands the bounds of acceptable discourse, so ideas considered out of bounds not long ago now rocket toward widespread acceptability. See: cannabis legalization, government-run health care, white nationalism and, of course, the flat-earthers. Yet there’s one political shore that remains stubbornly beyond the horizon. It’s an idea almost nobody in mainstream politics will address, other than to hurl the label as a bloody cudgel. I’m talking about opening up America’s borders to everyone who wants to move here.

I’ve changed my mind about building a wall along the Mexican border. Build it! The US government is shut down and the economic ramifications will be great. Not only are the families of people who’ve been put out of work being hurt but the entire economy is going to be affected. Challenger Gray & Christmas, a research firm, estimates that the shutdown could reduce consumer spending by $3.4 billion a month. And since the consumer is the biggest part of our economy, that’s going to smart. The hard-headed politicians in Washington are clear: President Trump says

The list, released by the Northeast Province of Jesuits on Tuesday, shows that much of the abuse was reported years after it allegedly took place, meaning that officials may not have known about the wrongdoing when they transferred priests from one institution to the next.

Earlier this month, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced that tax season would open on time (January 28, 2019) and, in a departure from previous years, that tax refunds would be issued during the shutdown. Over the weekend, the IRS announced that Free File, a free online software program available through IRS.gov, was open for business even as IRS doors remain closed.

It’s tough to tell. Does this make the shutdown a bug … or a feature? Nancy Pelosi has asked Donald Trump to put off his State of the Union speech to the joint session of Congress until after the funding issues have been resolved: (Copy of Letter/Tweet) And with that, the new Speaker of the House just made the best case possible for a perpetual shutdown. Kidding! What I meant to say was that Nancy Pelosi has finally sounded a note of wisdom, at least in her reminder that presidents used to just deliver a report in writing to Congress.
