We’ve all heard the saying that cheaters never win and that’s what comes to mind as I continue to seem more news out of Broward County, Florida concerning the 2018 midterm elections.
First there was the video of ballots being improperly transported and then reported missing.
Then there were reports of election workers signing affidavits claiming that election official filled blank ballots.
Then there was a report that around 17,000 ballots in Broward County were missing.
All of these reports stem around long-time Democrat election official Brenda Snipes, who had previously been associated with questionable practices.
After missing the recount deadline, it’s now being reported that Snipes is still trying to find 2,000 ballots that appear to have gone missing.
Breitbart – Broward’s Brenda Snipes Searches Her Office for Over 2,000 ‘Missing’ Ballots – 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…
What do you get when you 1+1+1+1?
It comes to four and that’s how many highly questionable circumstances, and possibly more, surround Brenda Snipes and her department.
To many, it all adds up to an attempt to sway the close elections for governor and US Senator, in favor of fellow Democrats.
However, it seems that if this was her intention, it has backfired to the point that prevented any recount and has given the governor’s election to former Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis and possible the governor’s race to former Republican Gov. Rick Scott.
So yes, it seems that cheaters don’t win!
