Democrat Election Official Resigns

Posted on | November 19, 2018 | Comments Off on Democrat Election Official Resigns


She failed to steal the election, so she’s quitting:

Just hours after finishing a tumultuous election recount, Broward Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes submitted her resignation, ending a 15-year tenure full of botched elections, legal disputes and blistering criticism. . . .
In the final version of the resignation letter, sent to Gov. Rick Scott, Snipes said it was her “passion and honor” to have served in the office. “I am ready to pass the torch,” she wrote in the letter, which made no mention of controversies surrounding the 2018 election. . . .
During the just-completed recount of the midterm election, Scott was a fierce critic of Snipes, accusing her of years of incompetence and asking the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate what he said “may be rampant fraud.” . . .
Broward’s vote counting was an outlier among the state’s 67 counties, taking a long time to complete. For days, Snipes wouldn’t say how many ballots were outstanding and uncounted and her office wasn’t reporting updated results as frequently as the law required.
And there were repeated hiccups during the recount period, including Snipes’ acknowledgment on Saturday that her office couldn’t find 2,040 ballots that had been included in the first vote count but not in the machine recount of state elections.
She said she was sure they were somewhere in her office, probably mixed in with other ballots.

Thank God these corrupt Democrats are so incompetent. If Snipes actually knew what she was doing, she might have gotten away with it.

UPDATE: Will Snipes be the scapegoat for Nelson’s defeat?

A telltale sign of bad ballot design in Broward (where the Senate race was tucked below the instructions in the lower left-hand corner) was how Broward’s undervote rate in the Senate race was so much bigger than in any other Florida county. Unlike Miami-Dade to its north and Palm Beach to its south, Broward County had fewer votes for the top of the ticket Senate race than governor (as well as the three Florida Cabinet posts). Thousands of people just undervoted the race because they probably didn’t see it on the ballot. . . .
If we assume Broward would vote like demographically/geographically/politically similar Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties, then Broward Election Supervisor Brenda Snipes’ bad ballot may have killed Sen. Nelson’s political career. In Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties, an average of 0.34 percent more ballots were cast for Senate than governor. If we apply that percentage increase to Broward’s governor’s race (709,179 votes), then the Senate race would have had 711,610 votes (instead of 683,636). And if that happened, then Nelson would have netted 10,674 more votes than Scott. Nelson therefore would have won Florida by 641 votes.
If Democrats want to argue that Snipes helped cost them a Senate seat, the above numbers (which are just estimates, and not the only ones) are reasonable grounds for that. But the criticism has been muted. Snipes is a Democrat. And Democrats signed off on this ballot design without objection. Maybe that’s why team Nelson wanted to argue that faulty tabulating machines (and not bad ballot design) were to blame? The manual recount put that theory to rest.

Yeah, Democrats blaming the black woman because the old white guy lost the election. Go with that theory. It’s perfect.
