They have magically “ found” 15 ,000 ballots, almost ALL for Dems, since yesterday!
Gov. Rick Scott is asking the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate vote counting in South Florida’s Democratic stronghold counties, questioning whether “rampant fraud” is happening as his race for U.S. Senate appears headed for a hand recount.
Scott held a 15,079 vote advantage over incumbent Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson as of Thursday night. He has filed a lawsuit against Brenda Snipes, Broward County’s supervisor of elections, accusing her office of not complying with the state’s public records laws.
Scott questioned how “votes are coming out of nowhere” in Democratic-leaning Broward and Palm Beach counties during a Thursday night news conference at the governor’s mansion. He blasted Palm Beach elections chief Susan Bucher and Snipes for what he called “rank incompetence.”
“The people of Florida deserve fairness and transparency, and the supervisors are failing to give it to us,’’ Scott said. “Every Floridian should be concerned that there may be rampant fraud happening in Palm Beach and Broward counties.’’

“As more votes are being counted, Sen. Bill Nelson’s vote share is increasing and will continue to increase,” the fundraising blast read. “We believe Sen. Nelson will be the winner of this election at the end of this process and we must see it through to the end.”
