While both the Democratic and Republican Parties delve into the votes of Florida’s Broward County, it has been reported that the Sunshine State’s senatorial and gubernatorial races begin to come closer to a tie… and something is fishy.
Republican Senator Marco Rubio has stated that this isn’t the first time the County’s elections office has been accused of malfeasance.
“This is at a minimum a pattern of incompetence. Voters deserve better,” the Florida Senator explained on Thursday during an appearance on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
“This is not even a partisan thing. This is a county that apparently cannot even count votes as well as a county that just got wiped out by a hurricane,” he continued.
Governor Rick Scott filed a lawsuit against Broward County’s Election Supervisor Brenda Snipes on Thursday. In the suit, he claimed that she had refused to notify them of votes that had yet to be counted.
OMG. Looking at county-level undervote. Broward stands out for having 3.7% of its ballots left blank for #FLSEN but cast for #FLGOV. No other county comes close, and Palm/Dade had more votes for Senator. Either this is ballot design or machine error. #flapol #sayfie pic.twitter.com/OtyK0oO20g
