Florida has once again found itself central to a voting scandal.
Current Florida governor and senator-elect Rick Scott has announced that he is suing Broward County and Palm Beach County election officials for “rampant fraud.”
Things went pretty much as everyone thought they would on election night in Florida.
We knew Democrat voters would be energized and we knew the races would be tight, but we expected to win most of the key races in the state.
By the time most of us went to bed on Tuesday night, we were very comfortable we had a Republican senator and a Republican governor in Florida.
Suddenly, all of that is now in doubt.
Scott was so dismayed at the blatant fraud being committed in the state, he held a press conference on Thursday night to address the issue.
The governor said: “The people of Florida deserve fairness and transparency, and the [election] supervisors are failing to give it to us.”
Scott believes there are problems with both the election officials and the votes.
In a matter of 48 hours, almost 100,000 votes mysteriously showed up.
Nobody could tell Scott where they magically came from; they just arrived.
Not so surprisingly, most of the votes that arrived late were for Democrats, cutting Scott’s lead by almost 75 percent to less than 15,000 votes.
During an interview with Fox News, Scott was adamant this election should be with the voters — not lawyers running a scam.
“No ragtag group of liberal activists or lawyers from D.C. will be allowed to steal this election from the voters in the state of Florida,” Scott said.
President Trump also chimed in, tweeting: “Law Enforcement is looking into another big corruption scandal having to do with Election Fraud in Broward and Palm Beach. Florida voted for Rick Scott!”
In addition to Scott’s Senate race, the governor’s race is also now in question.
If the final tally gets to within .5 percent, a recount becomes mandatory.
And what are the chances the vote tally stays the same with liberal election officials tallying them up?
