When Florida’s Broward County makes the headlines, it’s not generally a good thing.
In 2017, a federal prosecutor who worked in Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s district was found dead on a Florida beach.
Beranton J. Whisenant, Jr. worked in the Miami U.S. Attorney’s office and was investigating passport and visa fraud.
In May of 2017, the 37-year-old prosecutor’s body was found tumbling in the surf of Hollywood Beach with a single gunshot wound to the head.
Over two months later, the police finally ruled that he “died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.”
But there was one small problem…
The police never found the weapon used in this alleged suicide.
After searching the immediate area extensively, no gun or any other type of weapon was ever found.
So, how can someone commit suicide by gun without a gun?
The best explanation investigators could come up with was that perhaps the gun had washed away in the tide.
This just happens to be the same county where Governor Rick Scott is insisting something nefarious is going on with the election.
After thinking he was a lock for a senate seat, he woke up the next morning to find out more votes had been found and not yet counted.
Over the next 48 hours, he saw his 60,000-vote lead dissipate to virtually nothing.
Republicans went from celebrating key senate seat and gubernatorial race victories to sweating out a recount.
Unfortunately for Republicans, that recount will be supervised by Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes, who has been associated with shady or downright illegal election practices on several occasions.
As a matter of fact, we already know shady things have gone down with this election, as Snipes’ team threw rejected votes into a valid ballot pile.
It would not surprise anyone if we find out in the near future both Scott and DeSantis have lost their elections after Snipes gets done with her recount.
