Republican Congressman Ron DeSantis was Florida’s governor-elect for a solid couple of days after Democrat challenger Andrew Gillum conceded on election night.

The same could be said for current governor, now Senate candidate, Rick Scott, who beat incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson.

Now, who knows what’s going to happen?

Florida is going to a recount.

Broward County, Florida Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes, a Democrat, was appointed by then-Republican Governor Jeb Bush in 2003.

Snipes has a history of malfeasance.

Because of the craziness taking place in the Sunshine State involving Tuesday’s elections, Snipes was ordered to turn over ballots for inspection by 7pm EST Friday night.

She missed the deadline.

Now, Florida Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz says Snipes may be held in contempt.

This whole fiasco involves ballots mysteriously being found days after the election, all in favor of Democrat candidates Bill Nelson and Andrew Gillum.

Rep. Gaetz: When I leave here we are going to go get motions of contempt prepared and we are going back in front of a judge to hold Brenda Snipes in contempt of court.

WATCH:

Snipes allowed illegal aliens and felons to vote in the past:

Three statewide races in Florida are headed to a recount and all depend on results from a county whose supervisor of elections has a history of losing ballots and breaking laws by allowing illegal immigrants and felons to vote, as well as illegally destroying ballots.

A judge has found that Broward county violated the constitution of the Sunshine State.

From Local 10:

A judge ordered Broward County Supervisor of Elections Dr. Brenda Snipes to allow immediate inspection of voter records during an emergency hearing Friday.

The court was asked to intervene in the tight U.S. Senate race between Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and Republican Florida Gov. Rick Scott as the two sides prepare for a possible recount.

Judge Carol-Lisa Phillip said Snipes must allow inspections on or before 7 p.m. Friday evening. Phillips found that Snipes violated that law by failing to turn over the information to attorneys for Scott’s Senate campaign and the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
