As The Gateway Pundit reported earlier…
Former Florida Lieutenant Governor Jeff Kottkamp tweeted that there is an affidavit from a Florida campaign worker who states that he/she saw Broward County Elections staff filling out blank ballots!
When the Florida Broward County Elections staff member reported that she saw elections staff committing crimes by filling out of blank ballots, she was fired and told not to come back!
Former Florida Lieutenant Governor Jeff Kottkamp tweeted:
Affidavit filed by Broward Election’s employee in support of Caldwell lawsuit provides eye witness account of Elections staff filling in blank ballots. When this was reported the employee was fired and told not to come back. #sayfie

President Donald Trump expressed skepticism about a recount in the Florida election on Monday, claiming it was impossible to conduct a fair tally.
“An honest vote count is no longer possible-ballots massively infected,” he wrote on Twitter. “Must go with Election Night!”
The recount of the midterm election vote has already started with the deadline for results on Thursday.
Trump suggested that Florida officials call the election in favor of Republican Rick Scott for Senator and Ron DeSantis for governor.
“Large numbers of new ballots showed up out of nowhere, and many ballots are missing or forged,” he wrote, referring to thousands of additional votes in Broward County and Palm County.
Democrat Senator Bill Nelson has not conceded the election and Andrew Gillum, the Democrat candidate for governor, has withdrawn his concession.
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!

I suspect he’s correct! This is a consequence of no accountability regarding the Supervisor of Elections for Broward.
I see no solution that solves this and satisfies all who voted.

An Avis employee at Ft. Lauderdale airport found a box labeled with the SOE (Supervisor of Elections) and the word “Provisional” in the back of the returned car on Sunday night. According to the Avis employee the last person to drive the car was a Broward County employee.
Richard DeNapoli tweeted out a photo of the boxes.

DeNapoli discovered who the car was rented to — Noah Holliman — a Democrat who works at the Broward Supervisor of Elections.
Rental car containing the ballot boxes was rented by Noah Holliman, per voter records a registered Democrat who works for Broward SOE and contributed to Gillum #foxnews #FloridaRecount @realRyanNicol @PhilAmmann #sayfie @Fla_Pol

So obviously the highly skilled nonpartisan members of Broward Sheriffs department would be all over this!
DeNapoli says the Broward Police Departement showed NO INTEREST in collecting the ballot box.
So DeNapoli called FDLE officers to come pick up the forgotten materials.

We’re running out of boxes, 1st Sarge.
This is such a mess – from beginning to end – that the only possibility I can see to resolve it, is a total re-do. And that’s a slim chance, in any case.
At this point, you’d think the Dems would be questioning their own vote count and be screaming at the sky for holding people accountable for this royal cluster. But no.
That leaves me wondering if the whole point of this debacle, was to destroy faith in elections, you know – the scorched earth, if we can’t win – burn it all down mentality. Granted a large percentage of voters are the brain-dead and unthinking who will carry on, as usual; continuing to believe it’s all fair and on the up & up. For the rest of us, there isn’t any legal recourse to pursue.
Leaving the last box on that list. I thought we’d have at least 4 years too. And perhaps we will. So far, all I’m seeing is the usual big talk and threats from the Dems. A majority in one house, isn’t very good odds of getting their agenda through. Even with dirty tricks like burying things in budget bills or mandatory defense spending bills.
But, given the propensity of the militant factions in the marxist-progressive-NWO-Dem party to violence and civil unrest, the secondary impacts of this civil war within the gov’t might as well be the real thing. If you can’t trust election results, that’s sort of the icing on the vile cake of the death of rule of law, that the Dems have been flaunting since Fast & Furious.

Before I forget – I thought this was “interesting” data, in light of the number – 6.5 MILLION. Kinda makes the case for voter ID, right there, doesn’t it?November 12, 2018 at 1:48 pm #64089
Before I forget –
Excerpt from linked article;
“During Calendar Years 2008 through 2011, SSA received 4,024 E-Verify inquiries using the SSNs of 3,873 numberholders born before June 16, 1901,” the report said. “These inquiries indicate individuals’ attempts to use the SSNs to apply for work.”

this was a test run for 2020. I fear we have become a banana republic and I have zero faith in the election process. My local rep (in a very red district) got a “new” district this year with 4-5 rural/red counties and a nice little chunk of Henrico and Richmond thrown in, just enough population to offset the entire rest of the district. Guess how Henrico and Richmond vote? 90% commie. He lost by less than 5k votes. I wonder how many were “provisional” or illegal or simply fraud. I then wonder at the number of seats lost by “just enough” votes. FL is on the radar due to past troubles, size, etc, but there were 30+ seats flipped in super tight races.

Florida Democrats urged voters to submit absentee ballots after Election Day, using an official form that had been altered to make it look like they were doing so within the legal deadline, hoping a judge would later allow the votes.November 16, 2018 at 9:46 am #64164wheelseeParticipant

Well we have settled the Gubernatorial race with Ron DeSantis defeating Socialist Gillum.
The election will be certified Tuesday.
Machine recount has triggered a manual recount in the Senate race and the state agriculture commissioner’s race.
A overlooked part of this is the Agriculture Commissioner’s race, one of the important duties of the Agriculture Commissioner is administrating Florida’s CCW Licensing program.November 16, 2018 at 10:17 pm #64179
A coalition of organizations financed by billionaire activist George Soros successfully intervened in a lawsuit against Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes in a case involving ballots counted by Snipes’ office after the official deadline had passed.
The judge in the case ultimately rejected an emergency motion for a temporary injunction filed by Gov. Rick Scott’s legal team regarding ballots that were purportedly cast in time but were not included in the first count by Broward County before the deadline for those ballots to be counted. Scott is facing a recount battle in his Senatorial race against Sen. Bill Nelson.
Scott’s campaign had sued Snipes in the case. Notably, the interveners opposing Scott in the case against Snipes were the League of Women Voters and Brennan Center for Justice at the New York University Law School, two organizations financed by Soros. Helping in the case was Common Cause, which is also financed by Soros’s Open Society Foundations. An intervener allows a non-party to join an ongoing lawsuit.
Common Cause took to Twitter to declare victory in the case:
A win for all voters in Florida!
The work continues. Today it was a lawsuit. Tomorrow it will be recruiting nonpartisan volunteers to observe the #FloridaRecount. We won't stop until we #CountEveryVote in #Florida and everywhere else.https://t.co/8JbyG8J0Y6 pic.twitter.com/c9O3hF23UC

The League of Women Voters purports to be “nonpartisan, neither supporting nor opposing candidates or political parties at any level of government, but always working on vital issues of concern to members and the public.” Capital Research charges the group has evidenced a “major flirtation with the Democratic Party.” The League documents its funding from Soros’s Open Society Institute.
The Brennan Center for Justice at New York University Law School is a liberal policy institute that says it “focuses on the fundamental issues of democracy and justice.” It has been the recipient of numerous grants from Soros’s Open Society Foundations totaling over $7,466,000 from 2000 to 2010 alone.
Myrna Perez and Jonathan Brater of the Brennan Center provided councel in the case, while the League of Women Voters intervened together with Joanne Lynch Aye, a Broward voter.
In his order denying Scott’s request for an injunction, Judge Jack Tuter wrote that he made the decision after reviewing arguments from Scott’s team as well as responses filed by the “intervener(s)” – the Soros-funded groups in question.
Common Cause issued a press release celebrating Tuter’s ruling and quoting leaders from its own group as well as from the Soros-funded Brennan Center and League of Women Voters organizations.
“This is a win for Florida voters because counting every eligible vote is how democracy is supposed to work,” stated Common Cause Executive Director Anjenys Gonzalez-Eilert. “Tossing out timely ballots would have been a gross injustice and this ruling will restore the faith of voters in the process.”
“This is a victory for democracy, and most important, for the people of Florida,” Patricia Brigham, president of the League of Women Voters of Florida, was quoted saying. “Voters who cast their ballots on time deserve to have their voices heard.”
“We had a senate campaign attempt to recklessly and improperly reject the voices of eligible voters during the ballot counting process, and today, those shameful attempts were beaten back,” claimed Myrna Pérez, deputy director of the Brennan Center’s Democracy Program and head of the organization’s voting rights project. “We’re proud to represent the people of Florida to ensure their rights are upheld, their voices are heard, and their will at the ballot box is protected.”
In the case, the interveners argued that their interests were separate from those of Snipes, and noted that she “failed” to ensure ballots were counted on time.
“Because the Supervisor failed to ensure that all valid ballots were included in the first unofficial count, the Supervisor could be subject to significant public and financial pressure to resolve this litigation in a manner adverse to the interests of the Intervenors,” the interveners wrote.
The legal challenge involved several dozen ballots.
The lawsuit does not mark the only involvement of some of these organizations in the Florida recount ordeal.
Last Saturday, the League of Women Voters and Common Cause threatened to take Scott to court if he didn’t recuse himself from the state’s recount, which includes his own Senatorial election.
Earlier this week, Scott announced he will recuse himself from his role on the Florida Canvassing Board, which is slated to certify the results of his Senatorial election on Tuesday.November 18, 2018 at 7:04 am #64202
LAUDERHILL, Fla. — Embattled Broward Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes is personally overseeing the search within her headquarters here for purportedly missing ballots to account for the 2,040-vote discrepancy in the number of votes cast in her county during the Midterm Elections.
The discrepancy came in the difference of total votes registered from the initial machine count and the results from the machine recount numbers reported earlier today.
Election workers in Snipes office told Breitbart News that Snipes and her team are scouring the office building, located inside a strip mall in Lauderhill adjacent to a Dunkin’ Donuts and Winn-Dixie grocery store. The workers spoke on condition that their names be withheld.
Snipes herself earlier told the elections Canvassing Board as well as lawyers for the Democratic and Republican parties that the purportedly missing ballots are “in the building” and have not disappeared.
“We have been trying to determine what could have caused the drop. What we believe is that in the recount area … I believe those ballots were probably mixed in with another stack. The ballots are in the building. The ballots are in the building,” Snipes said earlier today.
“The ballots are in this building. There would be nowhere else for them to be. But they are misfiled in this building,” she said.
Several hours later Snipes said that her team still has not found the ballots: “I really wanted to go on the record that the votes are in the building. I know that sounds trite. It sounds foolish,” Snipes said.
As of this writing, the ballot discrepancy has not been accounted for. This reporter was embedded inside Snipes’ headquarters for a portion of the evening.
The issue will soon be turned over to the elections Canvassing Board for a decision on how to proceed given a Sunday deadline for sending the final results to the state.
If Snipes cannot come up with physical ballots, the discrepancy could potentially be utilized by lawyers to argue for the Broward County machine results to be contested. It also throws into question whether the state should use the original count numbers or those of the recount.
“This is a big deal,” E. John Sebes, founder of Open Source Election Technology, a nonprofit organization promoting accuracy in the ballot-counting process, told the New York Times. “If you have an election margin of 0.21 percent and a variance of 0.12 percent, the variance of your machine count is half the margin you are trying to correct. That’s kooky.”
The discrepancy marks the latest controversy to hit Snipes’ office regarding her handling of the Midterm election.
Last weekend, the Miami Herald reported that Snipes’ office mixed 20 rejected ballots with a sampling of 205 valid provisional ones in the current election. The discrepancy was reportedly found only after uproar from the Republican Party resulted in the Broward County canvassing board inspecting those provisional ballots.
Another issue has been the increase of 80,000 votes in Broward County following the election.
The New York Times reported on the issue:
The vote count in heavily Democratic Broward County increased by about 80,000 in the four days after the election, possibly because of mail-in, provisional, overseas and military ballots that come in late and were legally counted after Election Day.
But no other counties showed were identified publicly with such a high number of additional ballots registered after the election, and Broward County’s election supervisor, Brenda C. Snipes, offered few explanations.
Noteworthy to outside election experts were the variances in vote tallies, which effectively meant that thousands of votes weren’t counted. “If I were a campaign, I’d be yelling and screaming,” said Charles Stewart III, director of the Election Data and Science Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. “I’d want a hand recount of every single ballot.”
Florida Gov. Rick Scott, whose senate election is up for recount, called on Florida’s Department of Law Enforcement to investigate possible irregularities in ballot offices in southern Florida amid questions about the slow pace of Broward’s ballot counting and past wrongdoings by Snipes.
A judge ruled that Snipes destroyed ballots too soon in a critical 2016 Congressional race in which former Democratic National Convention (DNC) Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz won reelection.
Snipes was also ordered by a judge earlier this year to change the way she handles mail-in ballots after her office was accused of opening them in secret.November 19, 2018 at 4:21 am #64214KeeperParticipant
