Embattled Broward County Elections Supervisor Suggests She'll Step Down

Bill Nelson and Rick Scott

Attorneys for Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson and has already suggested fraud may be taking place in some counties. Scott said he has not decided his schedule yet.

They "started overheating so as a result the tally types are not reconciling properly".

Nelson's suit against Bay County Supervisor of Elections Mark Andersen, who told reporters this week he accepted about 150 ballots via email and fax because of his interpretation of Scott's post-Hurricane Michael order, claims Andersen refused to provide his campaign with copies of those ballots. Scott and McConnell stood silent when a cable network producer asked Scott to defend his prior statements alleging voter fraud. Lawyers for Democrats will ask a federal judge to set aside the state law mandating that mailed-in votes be thrown out if the signature on the envelope doesn't match the signature on file with election authorities.

Earlier on Tuesday, the same group of Democrats sued the state over vote-counting practices they say defy constitutional protections.

The Senate's top Democrat Chuck Schumer joined in the condemnation on Wednesday, saying Republicans were seeking to "shut down the election" before all votes are counted.

Florida's Palm Beach County was forced to restart its recount of about 175,000 early votes after its ballot-counting machines malfunctioned Tuesday. But Republicans, including President Donald Trump, have argued that voter fraud threatens to steal races from the GOP.

Several of the bodies discovered earlier this week were found in or near burned out cars, police have said. Geeting nostalgic, model Bella Hadid also shared a video of her Malibu home being burnt to ashes.

Former Democratic Congressman Patrick Murphy claimed in a tweet that his ballot had been among those disqualified for having an inconsistent signature.

"With the (outdated) election equipment that we have, the potential of conducting all of these is impossible, it is impossible", said Supervisor of Elections for Palm Beach County Susan Bucher said. If true, that would be a violation of election law.

A machine recount began over the weekend in the race between outgoing Republican Florida Governor Rick Scott and Democratic US Senator Bill Nelson, with another recount underway for the Florida gubernatorial race between Republican Ron DeSantis and Democrat Andrew Gillum.

But he joined five Republican senators-elect Wednesday for an appearance with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who published an op-ed Wednesday calling for bipartisanship.

Presidents historically have stayed out of partisan drama surrounding election irregularities, but Trump has called on Nelson to admit that he lost his re-election bid despite the continuing state-mandated recount.

Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes, right, showed a ballot box that was found in a rental vehicle after the elections and turned out to only contain election day supplies, as election employees sorted ballots and prepared to count them, Monday, in Lauderhill, Fla. The process resembled feeding documents into a photocopier - they placed stacks into feeders, which run through about two or three ballots per second.

By the time the Saints decided that they needed a guy like Bryant, it didn't take long for them to come to an agreement. The 2018 regular season has been one for the record books for Brees. "It was good", Bryant said of his first practice.

Mr Trump's call to end the recount, which is mandated by Florida law because of the closeness of the races, came even though state rules allow election officials to wait 10 days for absentee ballots submitted by registered voters living outside the USA, including active-duty military personnel. The closest race is for agriculture commissioner, where the Democrat, Nikki Fried, is ahead by 5,326 votes, a 0.06 percent lead against her Republican opponent, Matt Caldwell. But, again, it's important to note we've seen no evidence Snipes has done anything untoward on her party's behalf during the Florida recount.

If the Senate race does go to a hand recount, the deadline for counties to finish is Sunday. Nelson filed a lawsuit to allow vote-by-mail ballots received after the deadline to be counted.

The state Democratic Party appears to have sent the altered forms, according to emails released by the Florida Department of State.

"That's insane. It shows how broken our system is", Murphy said.

Murphy says it "shows how broken our system is", adding, "you just wonder how many other cases there are".

The Senate Democrats said Tuesday that neither Trump nor Scott were acting as honest brokers. State law enforcement and elections officials have said no fraud complaints have been filed.
