The difference between conservatives and liberals became clear on election night this past week. When Republicans lost the House, they accepted the results and immediately began strategizing on how best to take back control come 2020. When Democrats lost several seats in the Senate, specifically an incumbent seat in Florida, they immediately began colluding in Broward and Palm Beach County to muster up enough votes to change the results.
On election night, I told those around me that the Florida Secretary of State needs to look into vote counting in Broward and Palm Beach County because I suspected something nefarious going on there. My suspicion was based on the fact that several hours after the polls had closed and all other Florida counties had reported, Broward and Palm Beach counties were unreported.
It turns out that my suspicions were accurate.
For example, under Florida law, all early and absentee ballots are to be counted and submitted to the Secretary of State’s office no later than thirty minutes after polls close on election night. As of Friday morning, three days after the election, Broward County had failed to submit the early ballots. Palm Beach County had also failed to submit early vote totals on time. Not only are these two counties in violation of state law for not submitting election results in a timely manner, but the county election supervisors have also failed to notify state election officials of how many ballots remain uncounted. In the meantime, Broward and Palm Beach counties continue dumping thousands of votes into the system which is narrowing the lead that Republicans hold in the Senate and gubernatorial races.
According to ABC 10 news, a Florida judge stepped in recently and ruled that the Broward County supervisor Dr. Brenda Snipes, “must allow inspections on or before 7 p.m. Friday evening. [Judge] Phillips found that Snipes violated that law by failing to turn over the information to attorneys for [Rick] Scott's Senate campaign and the National Republican Senatorial Committee.”
To add to the trouble, the Florida Democrats tied up in these shenanigans hired Perkins Coie to represent them, the same law firm that worked for the Hillary Clinton 2016 campaign and Democratic National Committee to compile the discredited dossier against then-candidate Donald Trump. Yes, the same Russian-sourced dossier that was used by the FBI to open an investigation into Donald Trump’s campaign.
A recount is currently underway in Florida but President Trump noted on Monday, “The Florida Election should be called in favor of Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis in that large numbers of new ballots showed up out of nowhere, and many ballots are missing or forged. An honest vote count is no longer possible-ballots massively infected. Must go with Election Night!” The president is correct in that the Broward and Palm-Beach election officials broke state election law and dumped thousands of late ballots into the count. Now it is nearly impossible to differentiate between proper and improper ballots.
Mark my word, these type of shenanigans will continue in future elections. Perhaps in 2020. If Democrats will falsely smear Brett Kavanaugh, open an illegitimate investigation into Donald Trump and exonerate Hillary Clinton despite the multiple felonies she committed, then they will do anything necessary to take back power.
