BREAKING: Governor Scott Just Requested Sheriff’s Office To Impound And Secure All Voting Machines Not In Use

From Governor Rick Scott:

Following the continued antics, failures and willful disregard of the law by Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes and Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher, the Scott for Florida team has filed emergency motions and complaints to protect the security of ballots and the ongoing recount process.

These filings request that FDLE and the Sheriff’s Office be required to impound and secure all voting machines, tallying devices and ballots when they are not in use until the conclusion of the recount.

Considering Supervisor Snipes’ history of breaking the law by destroying ballots and Supervisor Bucher’s recent failure to follow legal requirements for reviewing ballots, these filings also request that both Supervisors be ordered to comply with all legal obligations and preserve all ballots and records connected with 2018 election.

Additionally, the Scott for Florida team has filed a complaint requesting that ballots illegally counted after Saturday’s noon deadline by the Broward County Canvassing Board -a violation of state law- not be included in official returns.

“The Broward and Palm Beach County Supervisors of Elections has already demonstrated a blatant disregard for Florida’s elections laws, making it more important than ever that we continue to do everything possible to prevent fraud and ensure this recount is operated responsibly. Senator-Elect Rick Scott will continue to fight to protect the will of Florida voters.” –Chris Hartline, Spokesman for Scott for Florida
