Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes is confident in the face of questions as to whether her office can count 700,000 ballots by Thursday’s deadline, telling reporters Tuesday that “there has never been a deadline we have missed.”
While appearing on CNN on Monday, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., claimed that Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes followed the law in her handling of ballots. But, the Daily Caller said, a circuit court judge said the exact opposite.
moving on eh well hopefully this cleans up broward abit but not to optimistic yet . didnt know jeb put her there
A day after Jeb Bush called for her to resign, Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes said "it is time to move on" from her role overseeing the Florida county office. Snipes, 75, has been facing mounting criticism as Florida's Senate and gubernatorial elections have been locked in a ballot-counting battle.
Bush, a former Republican presidential candidate and governor of Florida, tweeted on Monday that Snipes should no longer serve in her role overseeing Broward's elections. "There is no question that Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes failed to comply with Florida law on multiple counts, undermining Floridians’ confidence in our electoral process," Bush said. "Supervisor Snipes should be removed from her office following the recounts." Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., also suggested Snipes should be removed, telling reporters last week: "She's certainly a candidate for removal. ... This is not one bad cycle, this is a pattern." Bush asked Snipes to become supervisor in 2003, and she been elected to the role four times since. JEB BUSH JOINS REPUBLICANS CALLING FOR BRENDA SNIPES' REMOVAL AMID FLORIDA ELECTION CHAOS Outgoing Republican Florida Gov. Rick Scott, locked in a tight and bitter race for the lead against incumbent Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, accused Democrats of conducting a coordinated effort to "steal" elections in a campaign of possibly "rampant fraud," in a lawsuit Thursday. In an emergency complaint, Scott accused Snipes of being "unwilling to disclose records revealing how many electors voted, how many ballots have been canvassed and how many ballots remain to be canvassed," and charged that the uncertainty "raises substantial concerns about the validity of the election process."
