The Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel reports:
Protesters are chanting for Broward County’s elections chief to be imprisoned, and candidates are gearing up for a legal slugfest Friday, bringing chaos into Florida’s midterm elections reminiscent of the infamous 2000 presidential recount.
A crowd assembled outside the office of Broward elections chief Brenda Snipes just a day after Republican Gov. Rick Scott delivered a speech at the governor’s mansion asking state police to investigate vote counting in Broward and Palm Beach counties.
“They’re putting ballots in and signing ballots that don’t exist,” said Jodi Sandak of Boynton Beach, a member of Americans for Trump Broward Chapter, who held a sign with a picture of Snipes under the heading Supervisor of Corruption.
Earlier today Right Wing Watch reported that multiple prominent far-right extremists are already in Broward County to cause trouble.

What concerns Republicans is not the law that would require an automatic machine recount in the governor race or a hand recount in the senate race… it’s the fact that in Broward county we’ve now had over 80,000 ballots literally spoken into existence…. pic.twitter.com/Yj2iqy219y

Governor Scott should immediately suspend Brenda Snipes in Broward Co for failing to follow state transparency laws during this election. The bipartisanly Senate-confirmed Secretary of State should then place the office in receivership and take over. Enough is enough. #sayfie
