Republicans are protesting against Broward County election boss – a democrat with years of ballots

Republican protesters held Friday demonstrations against the electoral boss in Broward County, Florida, who is in the midst of the controversy over ballots that threatens to tear up the expected GOP victory in the state senate and gubernational matches.

Activists with MAGA hats and placards protested against Brenda Snipes, the head of the Election Committee of Broward County and a registered Democrat, because late voting rounds forced on the edge of a mandatory state brochure of the two elections.

The GOP had claimed victory in both, with Democrat Andrew Gillum, who admitted the gubernatorial contest with Ron DeSantis and Rick Scott, the governor of the state, and said he had defeated the incumbent Senator Bill Nelson.

But Broward County revealed increasing number of ballot papers for both Democrats, which made Nelson say he did not give in – and for his campaign to maintain a deeply controversial Democratic lawyer: Marc Elias, who is the golden showers & # 39; file of unverified claims against Donald Trump.

Snipes was accused of fraud & # 39; and potential election theft by President Trump and the Republicans. She has had to deal with accusations of & # 39; incompetence & # 39; and corruption of activists from across the political spectrum.

Snipes, a 75-year-old former teacher, was appointed by Jeb Bush in 2003 to serve as Broward County Supervisor of Elections, despite being a registered Democrat.

Remarkably enough, she has been criticized and accused by an ally of Bernie Sanders; medical proponents of marijuana; and the Republican Party of Florida for alleged misconduct at elections.

She was also admonished by judges in this year in at least two cases relating to her election monitoring.

Snipes is now faced with another lawsuit from Scott, who claims that & # 39; fraud & # 39; was in the count of the votes in his race against Nelson.

Scott has questioned the validity of recently discovered ballots in Broward County, which continued to count days after the election.

Nelson gave the race to Scott on Tuesday, but the race seems to be on the way to a recount, as newly counted votes from Broward County Nelson place within the automatic recount margin.

The tightening of the count also triggered the gubernatorial race in Florida between the Republican Ron DeSantis and the democrat Andrew Gillum, after Gillum had admitted the race.

Trump destroyed Snipes on Friday and said she & # 39; had a terrible history & # 39 ;.

"Suddenly they find voices out of nothing," Trump said. Rick Scott who won, it was close but he won with a comfortable margin, every few hours it went down a little bit. & # 39;

Trump also expressed concern about the involvement of the democratic lawyer Marc Elias in the recount in Florida. Elias, Nelson & # 39; s campaign lawyer, reportedly started using the file on Trump's Russian connections from Fusion GPS in 2016.

& # 39; And then you see the people, and they were involved in the fraud of the fake file, the fake file, and I suspect that I heard that they were involved or worked in one way or another on the GPS Fusion people, & # 39; Trump said. & # 39; Bad things have gone in Broward County, really bad things. & # 39;

Elias, Nelson & # 39; s campaign lawyer, will oversee the threatening recount in the senate race.

DailyMail.com reported on the role of Elias in the Florida elections and his involvement in the & # 39; file & # 39; from Trump on Thursday.

Elias, who served as general counsel for Hillary Clinton's advocate for the Democratic National Committee, retained the research firm Fusion GPS to investigate Trump's connections with Russia in April 2016.

Elias & # 39; s law firm Perkins Coie channeled $ 1.02 million from the Democratic National Commission and the Clinton campaign to Fusion GPS during the election. Fusion GPS told Congress that it used $ 168,000 to pay for Orbis Business Intelligence, a company founded by former MI6 officer Christopher Steele, to compile a file on Trump's ties with Russia.

The infamous file, which was published after the elections, suggested that Trump campaign officials were recruited by Russian intelligence services and claimed that Russia was blackmailing Trump with a video of his contacts with Russian prostitutes.

During the election, Elias's company received $ 5.6 million from Clinton and $ 3.6 million from the DNC.

Elias also serves as counsel for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Commission, and the Democratic Governors Association.

Trump destroyed Snipes on Friday and said she & # 39; had a terrible history & # 39 ;. Trump also expressed concern about the involvement of Elias, who allegedly was commissioned by the Democratic Party in 2016 to issue a & # 39; file & # 39; had written about the Russian connections of Trump from Fusion GPS.

He previously helped oversee the successful 2008 recount of former Senator Al Franken in Minnesota. Elias also worked as general adviser to John Kerry during his campaign in 2004.

Republican critics of Snipes have called the delayed count suspicious, with Sen. Marco Rubio pointed out that an abandoned box of voices was reportedly discovered at a school in Broward County, two days after the election.

Snipes did not respond to a request for comment from DailyMail.com.

Snipes defended the slow count on Thursday, told a branch of Florida ABC that the county simply judges many ballot papers.

We ran 22 sites, we ran 14 days, we ran 12 hours, we had a big voice by post (during early voting), so do not try to change it to make it look like I'm making comedy of this, "Snipes said.

Although Snipes is faced with the heat of national Republicans, her electoral supervision has drifted two-fold criticism over the years.

Nan Rich, a Democratic Broward County Commissioner, reprimanded the election observer for slow moods in September, according to news reports in Florida.

"We've been consistently the bottom of the barrel to get our voting results," Rich said. I do not want to be 67th in 67 provinces when I want to vote. & # 39;

Snipes graduated from Talladega College with a major in modern foreign languages, according to her official biography. She later received a master's degree in adult education and a doctorate in Educational Leadership from Nova Southeastern University.

Snipes worked as a teacher and a primary school principal, before becoming an educational advisor. She was then appointed Broward County election observer by the Republican Government Jeb Bush in 2003. She was re-elected four times.

Snipes has had various lawsuits since 2016 about her supervision of elections.

THE TEACHER FINDS & # 39; PROVISIONAL BALLOT BOX & # 39; IN THE STORAGE AREA OF SCHOOL

A teacher in a Broward County school claims a container on Thursday with the Provisional Ballot Box & # 39; in a storage room of her elementary school.

Lakeisha Sorey, of Broward County, said she found the box at Sunshine Elementary School on Thursday.

It was apparently left behind by election staff.

& # 39; I entered the area we used for storage and saw it inside & # 39 ;, Sorey told the New York Post.

She claims that she did not open or even touch the container because she was worried about tampering.

Sorey said she quickly informed the director of the school, who then contacted the representative of the local state.

The container was taken away and Sorey added to the Mail: I do not know where it is now. & # 39;

But Dozel Spencer, Broward's director of equipment for voting equipment, said there were no ballots in the box, only supplies.

Tim Canova, a protégé of Bernie Sanders who vainly against Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz ran Democratic primary in 2016, Snipes continued in 2017 for illegally destroying ballots from the race.

Canova and his supporters submitted public record requests to assess votes by letter in November 2016 and March 2017. When Snipes could not reverse the records, Canova filed a lawsuit to review the votes in June 2017.

Three months later, Snipes ordered her office to destroy nearly 700 boxes with voice records – because the lawsuit of Canova was under consideration.

In May, a judge found that Snipes' decision to destroy the records was a state law violation and ordered the payment of Canova's legal costs.

The Republican party from Florida also filed a lawsuit against Snipes this year and claimed that she and her employees were open by mail in a private environment before they could be judged by the Advisory Election Board.

In August, Broward County Circuit Court Judge Raag Singhal issued an order to Snipes to advise her not to open the ballots before being handed over to the Commissioning Board. He also instructed her to ensure that votes by letter were not cast in the names of deceased voters and to confirm that voters' signatures are valid.

The order also forbade Snipes from taking or approving actions that are not allowed by the statute or the law & # 39 ;.

In 2016, Snipes also came under fire from medical marijuana proponents after a small number of ballots had been issued without an initiative to approve a medical marijuana law.

Organizers of the initiative accused Snipes after the elections, arguing that voters were not justified by the inaccurate ballot papers.

The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws called the missing ballot & catastrophic & catastrophic & # 39; and said that it effectively "gives electors discharge and eliminates the right to vote on certain matters"; in a lawsuit.

Snipes has also monitored a number of technical issues & # 39; in Broward County who reportedly had been responsible for voting messages that were posted online too early and too late.

In August 2016, Broward County published the results of primary elections thirty minutes before the polls were closed – a violation of state law. Snipes said that a contractor, VR Systems, was responsible for the error and the company apologized for the flub.

& # 39; In the context of providing technical assistance to the Broward County Supervisor of Elections & # 39; Office created VR Systems a link on the website of the supervisor that Broward County made early votes and ballot papers at 6.30 pm. VR Systems assumes responsibility for this error, which is not in accordance with our service and performance standards, "said VR Systems in a statement on August 31, 2016.

Last August, Snipes also blamed a technical fault & # 39; at Broward County & # 39; s deferred primary election results. The province published its results online around midnight after the election day, five hours after the polls were closed.

In addition to the technical problems, some Democrats have also expressed concern about Russian hacking of election equipment in Florida.

& # 39;[The Russians] have already penetrated certain provinces in the state and they now have the freedom to move around, "Nelson told the Tampa Bay Times.

And in another troubling incident, an 11-year-old who attended a recent hack conference showed how he could infiltrate the Florida election website and change the voting results in just a few minutes.

Snipes denied that there was any evidence of Russian interference in the Broward County system, and said that she had not seen anything with our system that something strange is going on & # 39 ;.
