    The Democrats are brazen. And why not? Almost nothing ever happens to them.

  2. This is one of the dumber set of talking points you lot are running with.

    “It’s the third quarter and we’re ahead, stop the game, it’s the only fair outcome!”

    Sad.

  4. Broward County has so much to be ashamed of and not just election rigging.

  5. Empire XI-XI-XI

    The extent of electoral fraud will shock most.

    This time they walked into a trap.

    Voter ID for federal ballots will be implemented pre 2020.

  6. Mr Black

    I’d like to think the discovery of election fraud would result in arrests and a scandal. But it’s all just a game to the political class and nothing will be done about it. I’d like to think that in a nation where so many claim to see the need for a 2nd amendment that the citizens, on seeing the corruption of the government would decide to set matters right on their own. But it’s just bluff and posturing, playing the tough guy on the internet. In the end the criminals win because no one cares enough to stop them. They deserve what comes next as the penalty for cowardice.

    US electoral practices are an international embarrassment.

    So are Australia’s. The AEC is the ultimate toothless tiger.

    Voter fraud is easy to stop, mandatory long jail sentences and massive fines for the perperators , disqualify the candidate they favoured and appoint the person they cheated as winner , $10 million fines for the pary favoured , now thats going to stop it no worries ,the career pollies would never pass this ,”there but for the grace of God go they” .

    Yet Brenda Snipes continues to rig election after election for the Democrats in Broward County and nothing ever happens.

    US electoral practices are …

    Wascist.
    Apparently.

  12. Oh come on

    “It’s the third quarter and we’re ahead, stop the game, it’s the only fair outcome!”

    m0nty brings the kind of dim-witted mischaracterisation of his team’s corruption that everyone here is long used to. Boring. Get an act, m0nty.

    Dump all current voter registries and start all over.
    Proof of US citizenship required to register.
    Create a NATIONAL database to compare registered voters and prevent duplicate registrations.
    State or Fed Govt issued photo ID required to vote.
    Two days maximum of early voting.

    Any State refusing the above will not be allowed to vote in national elections.

  14. Zatara

    Create a NATIONAL database to compare registered voters and prevent duplicate registrations.

    Yep, sounds a little like a national ID card and at this point libertarian fantasies be damned. Reality says it may be the only way to resolve nation-threatening abuse of the ‘system’.

    Don’t want an ID? Don’t vote.

    No, the AEC was infiltrated by the fascist left some years ago.

    They even use the “Found some ballots” trick, or lose some if that produces a better result.

    Brenda Snipes looks like black Hillary. I also couldn’t help wondering if she’s any relation to Wesley…

    Jeff. Please tweet the entire story. Election “employees were taking ballots faxed from overseas military personnel and creating duplicate ballots that could be read by the tabulating machine.” This is perfectly legal says State Attorney. That is the “rest of the story”.

    Don’t read Gateway Pundit, that stuff rots your brain.

    Monty, the question was “Do you believe women?”

    Idiot.

  19. Up The Workers!

    Hmmm…what was the percentage voter turnout in those electorates where the Dimocrats subsequently turned around the initial count – 150%? 200%? 250% voter turnout? Evidently they must be very popular candidates, these successors to the pro-slavery Confederates.

    I don’t know much about the “Broward Effect”, but it sounds suspiciously like the Gillard effect to me.

    Many dead Leftards turn out to vote on polling day in the U.S.A.?

    They always do – both early and often – over here in Australia.

    Monty quotes Stephen Colbert!

    Stephen Colbert ‘Late Show’ writer: ‘I’m just glad we ruined Brett Kavanaugh’s life’

    In a social media post on Saturday, a writer for CBS’s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” seemingly celebrated the damage done to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s reputation during his bruising and bitterly partisan confirmation battle.
    “Whatever happens, I’m just glad we ruined Brett Kavanaugh’s life,” the writer, Ariel Dumas, posted on Twitter. Dumas later briefly made her account private, preventing others from viewing her posts without her approval.

    “It’s the third quarter and we’re ahead, stop the game, it’s the only fair outcome!”

    Wrong as usual. It’s fifth quarter, the games over and people are heading home already, and one side starts kicking goals.

  22. That is not the real Colbert, mh.

    Obviously you’re not a bright spark.

  23. Wrong as usual. It’s fifth quarter, the games over and people are heading home already, and one side starts kicking goals.

    It’s not even a recount! It’s the initial count, which always goes past election day due to mail-in ballots postmarked up to election day which take days to dribble in.

    Are you wilfully ignorant and just prefer being lied to, or do you genuinely have NFI?

  24. Snoopy

    Who to believe? Monty or the Florida Department of State – Department of Elections?

    The deadline to request that a vote-by-mail ballot be mailed is no later than 5 p.m. on the 6th day before the election. However, the ballot must still be received by the Supervisor of Elections no later than 7 p.m. on Election Day if the voted ballot is to count. Exceptions exist for overseas military and civilian voters. See Military and Overseas Citizens Voting for further information.

  25. Zatara

    Jeff. Please tweet the entire story. Election “employees were taking ballots faxed from overseas military personnel and creating duplicate ballots that could be read by the tabulating machine.” This is perfectly legal says State Attorney. That is the “rest of the story”.

    A tweet from comedian Stephen Colbert assuring us the “State Attorney” says something is OK?

    Well, that’s sorted then.

    Or maybe we should wait until we can read the rest of the statement, and hear it from the Florida Attorney General?

    * Just noted that you claim “it’s not the real Colbert”. You quoted it, were you being deceitful?

  26. Snoopy

    You owe Tel an apology, Monty.

  27. Tel

    It’s not even a recount! It’s the initial count, which always goes past election day due to mail-in ballots postmarked up to election day which take days to dribble in.

    Totally false. Please do some reading.

    https://ussanews.com/News1/2018/11/10/developing-judge-rules-broward-county-violated-constitution-broke-records-laws/

    Republican Gov. Rick Scott — whose presumed election to the Senate hangs in the balance — decried the suspected fraud, suggested there should be a full investigation and filed a lawsuit against the counties to compel their compliance with state election laws.

    WTVJ in Miami reported that an immediate hearing on the lawsuit was held in a Broward County Circuit Court on Friday, where Circuit Judge Carol-Lisa Phillips ruled in favor of Scott and declared that Broward County election officials were in violation of both Florida’s state constitution and the public records act.

    Pretty simple concept, there’s strict rules about reporting, and the time available. Noon Saturday is the deadline for the initial count, and all the other precincts can achieve this. What’s more they already got caught mixing provisional ballots with real ballots. This is not about postal votes, when the Broward County election officials refused to even provide a statement of how many votes are in their possession they are in flagrant violation of the law.

    Are you wilfully ignorant and just prefer being lied to, or do you genuinely have NFI?

    There’s no need to talk about yourself in public. It’s embarrassing for you and no one wants to read about your low opinion of yourself. Just stop.

  28. Zatara

    “employees were taking ballots faxed from overseas military personnel and creating duplicate ballots that could be read by the tabulating machine.”

    Inside tip for those paying attention: Number of fax machines possessed by US military forces overseas = quite a few less than the number of under age 30 individuals who would recognize one without reading the nameplate.

    Last one I recall seeing in one of those units was stacked in a dusty warehouse next to the mule oat bags, trebuchet grease and gladiator swords.

    Like the rest of the world, the US military has these things called computers, and scanners, and the internet these days. None of which require “poll workers” to fill out new ballots “correcting mistakes”.

    Oh, it’s the other, reliable, non-partisan Stephen Colbert.

  30. I see monty has walked into a field of rakes again. Not surprising given he’s a Dem zombie.

  31. Zatara

    Brenda Snipes says she recommends the canvassing board accept a mixed batch of 205 provisional ballots, including at least 20 illegal votes.

    “It seems unfair to be to disenfranchise 205 voters at the expense of a small number,” Snipes says. “And if that’s being unfair to anyone, I don’t think it’s a large enormous gg number to effect the difference between who comes out of the recount as victor.”

    Provisional ballots are ballots cast in person on election day where the voter didn’t have ‘proper ID’ (which is a pretty low bar there) or they weren’t properly registered to vote.

    Two major Florida races are being recounted because of how farked up her precinct is and she reckons 4-5% illegal votes in a batch is cool.

    Unbelievable.

  32. Brenda Snipes is the future of many Western nations, I dare say.

  33. Totally false. Please do some reading.

    I did read it Tel, and it said it was all counting the votes for the first time, not recounting them. As I said.

    As linked, there are allowances made past that deadline for military personnel. So it is not the final siren. We are not in overtime just yet.

  34. Snoopy

    Stop lying, Monty. You were claiming all mail in ballots only had to be posted by election day. Even military ballots should arrive by election day. Where does the link say anything about “ballots postmarked up to election day”?

    This is what happens when your instant expertise is obtained from some lefty fuckwit on Twitter. Let’s face it, champ, you have NFI.

    Joy Reid Suggests Racism Behind Republican Criticism of Brenda Snipes

    From WSJ link above:

    Democrats have a hard time accepting electoral defeat. They’ve spent two years claiming with little evidence that Vladimir Putin elected Donald Trump. And now comes a vote-counting debacle in southern Florida that is at best gross incompetence, though don’t rule out an attempt to steal GOP wins for Senate and Governor.

    Florida Gov. Rick Scott is about 15,000 votes ahead of Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson for a seat in the Senate. That puts the race in range of an automatic recount under state law. But at 11:30 p.m. on election night, Mr. Scott led by 57,000 votes. The same trend is happening in the gubernatorial race that went for Republican Ron DeSantis over progressive Andrew Gillum, though neither race appeared to be heading for a recount on election night.

    The spread has narrowed in the past couple days by what can only be described as a suspect process in notorious Broward County. Three days after Election Day the county wasn’t finished reporting results from early voting, which ended on Sunday.

    Florida Senator Marco Rubio was among the first to note the irregularities. Broward won’t disclose how many ballots are left, and “isn’t reporting hourly or regularly, but rather releasing thousands of additional votes, often in the overnight hours, that are chipping away at GOP leads,” as Senator Rubio put it.

    On Thursday a teacher in Broward found a container labeled “Provisional Ballot Box” in a storage area of an elementary school that had been a polling station. The Sun-Sentinel reported Friday that a Broward County election official said there were no ballots in the box, which would be more reassuring if country officials were more transparent.

    The heavily Democratic Broward and Miami-Dade counties are infamous for election shenanigans, including “hanging chads” in the 2000 recount for George W. Bush and Al Gore. The official overseeing the process is supervisor Brenda Snipes. A court ruled that she had illegally destroyed ballots in 2016. Other Broward follies include ballot misprints, posting results before polls closed and more.

    Mr. Scott and the National Republican Senatorial Committee are suing Ms. Snipes for failing to disclose public records such as “how many electors voted, how many ballots have been canvassed, and how many ballots remain to be canvassed.”

    Such basic transparency exists to assure voters that the process is fair even when they don’t like the outcome. A Broward County judge ruled late Friday for Mr. Scott that Broward had to turn over these vote totals by 7 p.m., underscoring the illegality of Ms. Snipes’s failure to disclose basic voter information.

    Democratic lawyer Marc Elias has parachuted in to run Senator Nelson’s vote-counting, and Mr. Elias is making much of the oddity that 24,000 ballots in Broward County voted for Governor but not Senate. But that could simply mean that those voters didn’t like either Senate candidate. Trying to infer voter preference from a blank slate is election fraud.

    Mr. Gillum tweeted that counting votes “isn’t partisan—it’s democracy,” and Democrats are repeating the mantra to “count every vote.” But votes are supposed to be counted under consistent rules and practice, not discovered in haphazard fashion after the fact and dribbled out in violation of the law. Given the history of Broward, the partisanship of its officials and their behavior so far, the burden of proof is on Democrats to prove the count is honest.

  42. From the Florida Department of State web site:

    Generally, vote-by-mail ballots must be received by the Supervisor of Elections’ office no later than 7:00 p.m. on Election Day in order to be canvassed and counted; vote-by-mail ballots from overseas voters shall be counted if they are received within 10 days of the General Election, provided they are postmarked no later than the day of the election.
