What In The World?! Democrats In Florida Reportedly Want NON-CITIZEN Votes To Count

The elections in Florida have shaped up to be a real mess and, with each passing day, more uncertainty and more controversy seems to brew. Broward County and Palm Beach County have been the focus of what Republicans are claiming is voter fraud and an attempt to “steal” the elections.

The latest turn of events may have just spun the entire election on its head.

Here are the facts:

  • Nearly 90,000 votes have been added after voting closed on Tuesday evening and most of them went to help Democrat candidates
  • Republican senatorial candidate Rick Scott held a 57,000-vote lead on Tuesday. Now, he leads by less than 15,000 votes.
  • Broward County Election Supervisor Brenda Snipes has a history of illegally affecting voter tallies
  • Snipes’ office has reportedly mixed bad provisional ballots with good ones
  • And, the latest: Lawyers for Democrat candidates Bill Nelson and Andrew Gillum (who is competing against Republican Ron DeSantis for the governorship) reportedly want the vote of a non-citizen to count.

As BizPac Review reports, “Attorneys for Senator-elect Rick Scott, the National Republican Senate Committee and the Republican Party of Palm Beach County descended on the county’s Supervisor of Elections office on Friday night to oversee the vote counting that could decide the outcome of key Florida races.”

Understandably, representatives from both parties wish to be present to make sure the outcome of the election is legitimate. That’s when things took a bizarre turn.

During vote counting in Palm Beach County, a vote was rejected because the person who cast it was not a U.S. citizen. Clear call on this one, right? Wrong.

Attorneys representing Nelson and Gillum actually objected to discarding the vote, signaling they wanted it to count.

From the report:

Among the crowd of dedicated observers who remained past midnight was Michael Barnett, the chairman of the Palm Beach County Republican Party. Barnett sent BizPac Review part of the transcript from the proceedings showing attorneys for both Gillum and Nelson objecting to tossing out a non-citizen vote.

Susan Bucher, the election supervisor of Palm Beach County, rightfully called the ballot as “not counted,” but not without objection from both Gillum and Nelson’s attorneys.

What in the world?!

As FiveThirtyEight reports, both political parties have initiated lawsuits over the senatorial election:

The changing margin is due to continued vote-counting in Broward and Palm Beach counties, two of Florida’s largest and more Democratic-leaning counties. On Thursday evening, the supervisors of elections in the two counties told the South Florida Sun Sentinel that vote counting there was mostly complete. Under Florida law, counties have to report unofficial election results to the secretary of state by Saturday at noon, but Nelson’s campaign is suing to extend that deadline. Scott’s campaign and the National Republican Senatorial Committee are also suing both counties for not disclosing more information about the ongoing count, and Scott called on the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate Broward’s handling of ballots.

FiveThirtyEight also reports the data concerning votes in Broward County also looks suspicious:

Unusually, the votes tabulated in Broward County so far exhibit a high rateof something called “undervoting,” or not voting in all the races on the ballot. Countywide, 26,060 fewer votes were cast in the U.S. Senate race than in the governor race.1 Put another way, turnout in the Senate race was 3.7 percent lower than in the gubernatorial race.

Broward County’s undervote rate is way out of line with every other county in Florida, which exhibited, at most, a 0.8-percent difference.
