Florida Official Overseeing Vote Count Destroyed Ballots Accused of Not Removing Dead Voters from Rolls AP
He said that local election supervisor Brenda Snipes, a Democrat, has a "horrible history" and is "finding votes out of nowhere". Nelson's lawyer called that race a "jump ball" - though Scott's campaign urged Nelson to concede.
Scott said "unethical liberals" were trying to steal the election in Democratic strongholds of Broward and Palm Beach County.
The Florida Elections Canvassing Commission - comprised of Scott and two Cabinet members - is slated to meet 9 a.m. November 20th to certify the election results.
Critics of the Broward vote-count operation have cited Snipes's record of engaging in dubious, and occasionally illegal, conduct at her job. But lawyers for Scott contended the information is already required to be collected under state law and should take minutes to provide. Marx apparently found it a problem that Bucher's staff did not forward ballots to the canvassing board to decide if they were under or over votes.
"FDLE is working with the Department of State and we will investigate any allegations of criminal activity or fraud", FDLE spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger told TPM.
"Well, it could be", Trump said when asked if the federal government could get involved, "because if you look at Broward, and Palm Beach to a lesser extent, if you look at Broward County, they have had a disgusting history".
Trump later weighed in, tweeting Thursday evening: "Law Enforcement is looking into another big corruption scandal having to do with Election Fraud in #Broward and Palm Beach".
The tight races underscored Florida's status as a perennial swing state where elections are often decided by the thinnest of margins.
"You have to assume the worst here", Scott said, vowing to press ahead in the courts. But an election summary report sent out Friday afternoon shows incumbent Sen. The race remains too close to call, with Nelson narrowly trailing Scott.
MI is in the playoff - for now
The Fighting Irish are just ahead of MI based on a head-to-head matchup, won by Notre Dame 24-17. The Bulldogs would play No. 6 Oklahoma, which is the projected Big 12 champion in this ranking.
If the vote margin remains under the half percentage point for any of the three races in question, Secretary of State Ken Detzner is required to order the recount.
Are Florida's election officials merely incompetent, or is there a sinister plot afoot to throw the election results towards Democrats? Broward was the setting for some of the most contentious debates over "hanging chads" and other ballot irregularities that determined the outcome of the 2000 presidential contest between George W. Bush and Al Gore.
Nelson's election attorney Marc Elias tweeted Friday that "as the counties continue their work, I expect that margin will narrow further". "We are committed to ensuring every single vote in Florida is counted".
"She has had a disgusting history", said President Donald Trump, "and all of a sudden they're finding votes out of nowhere".
A lawyer for Sen.
In a call with reporters Thursday, Nelson's lawyer, Marc Elias, said that the race now stands as a "jump ball" as counties around the state canvass their votes, but he believes Nelson will prevail in the end.
He said that if Scott follows through on his "veiled threat" of blocking the ongoing count of "ballots that have been lawfully cast", he would quickly go to court. "Florida voted for Rick Scott!". "The Broward County Clerk, Brenda Snipes, was required by law after the polls closed on Tuesday night to within 30 minutes to share how many early votes were counted or cast in that county", McDaniel said.
Rubio also can not explain what the alternative would be to counting the ballots in Broward, if he - in stark contrast to those mischevious Democrats - does want to "make sure every vote is counted".
Many networks called Florida's Senate and Governor seats for Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis late Tuesday night.
