Broward County Elections Supervisor, Brenda Snipes, received some not so good news according to a new report published by Politico. It seems that Snipes is about to be booted from her position by either Gov. Rick Scott or Governor-Elect Ron DeSantis.
A judge has found Snipes to be in violation of many Florida election laws.
“Counting unlawful votes. Destroying ballots. Sunshine Law violations. Busted deadlines,” Politico’s Marc Caputo writes. “So many controversies have bedeviled Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes — culminating in her office’s troubles in the aftermath of Florida’s chaotic 2018 elections — that her days in office are now numbered, insiders and lawmakers say.”Advertisement - story continues below
Even Snipes’ fellow Democrats have begun to abandon her amid her increasingly indefensible mishandling of the count, which has already resulted in a judge finding her in violation of Florida election law, Snipes’ office accidentally mixing invalidated ballots into legitimate results, and a suspicious series of reports of “found” ballots and illegally transported ballots.
The situation is adding up to “the increasing likelihood of an embarrassing suspension from office at the hands of either Gov. Rick Scott or his likely successor, Ron DeSantis,” Caputo reports.Trending:
With 100% of the vote counted, but automatic recounts in process, Scott and DeSantis lead their Democrat opponents by about 12,500 and 33,700 votes out of over 8 million votes cast, respectively. The gap in Scott’s contest against incumbent Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson is less than 0.25%, triggering a hand recount. The gap between DeSantis and Democrat Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum is less than 0.5%, triggering a machine recount.
The races tightened in the eleventh hour, with Democrat-strongholds Broward County and Palm Beach County slowly disclosing more largely pro-Democrat votes, while failing to follow state law in transparency regarding the process.
Here’s Sen. Marco Rubio sounding the alarm on the corrupt behavior of Snipes.
#BrowardElections office admits the vote count they submitted to state includes 22 illegal votes.
We know about these 22 because they got caught breaking law in reviewing 202 ballots. How can anyone trust more illegal votes aren’ in their final count?https://t.co/DiLApbnGbx

Destroying ballots, opening absentee ballots early, and misprinting ballots.
This is deplorable behavior that undermines the integrity of the voting system in our country and prevents citizens from having a voice in their government. This goes against the fabric of everything America stands for, what makes this country so amazing.
Hopefully Scott or DeSantis follows through on this and holds her accountable.
