According to Chris Cuomo of CNN, zero voter fraud has taken place in Florida, even though the Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes has been shown to have violated federal law.
Speaking with Brad Todd, the senior adviser to Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R), who won the U.S. Senate seat last week over Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson, Cuomo said that “not a damn bit of proof” has been presented regarding voter fraud in the state of Florida.
“Before we put a halo on the Governor’s head, he came out with allegations of fraud, he didn’t have a damn bit of proof,” Cuomo told Todd. “He said that there was fraud, that [the governorship] was trying to be stolen from him, that there was cheating. You can’t prove anything. You have to have proof to say that there is fraud.”
Since last week, it has been shown that Broward County supervisor Brenda Snipes has a history of either gross incompetence or deliberate fraud, as The Daily Wire reported:
After a judge found her to have violated Florida elections law and amid reports of more highly suspicious actions by her office, the supervisor of elections for Broward County, Brenda Snipes, is expected to be “forced from office” by either Gov. Rick Scott or governor-elect Ron DeSantis, Politico reports.
“Counting unlawful votes. Destroying ballots. Sunshine Law violations. Busted deadlines,” Politico’s Marc Caputo writes. “So many controversies have bedeviled Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes — culminating in her office’s troubles in the aftermath of Florida’s chaotic 2018 elections — that her days in office are now numbered, insiders and lawmakers say.”
Even Snipes’ fellow Democrats have begun to abandon her amid her increasingly indefensible mishandling of the count, which has already resulted in a judge finding her in violation of Florida election law, Snipes’ office accidentally mixing invalidated ballots into legitimate results, and a suspicious series of reports of “found” ballots and illegally transported ballots.
In the same segment, Cuomo asserted that law enforcement in Florida has found no evidence of fraud in the state.
“They went to the secretary of state, who’s a Republican, and he said, ‘I have no specific allegation for you to look at,'” said Cuomo. “So these are all Republicans, the Florida law enforcement says we have nothing to look at, they reconfirmed that this weekend. No halo for the governor on this.”
Brad Todd hit back by pointing out the very clear cases of voter fraud that Democrats in the state are actually trying to commit “out in the open.”
“Let’s talk about the fraud that the Democrats are trying to commit out in the open,” Todd said. ” Right now, Mark Elias, who’s a lawyer for the Democratic side, he is asking the state of Florida to overturn the Florida procedures for verifying absentee ballots. Now that’s fraud in the open.”
Todd continued, “He’s asking them to count ballots that canvassing boards have already deemed invalid or fraudulent. That is the same lawyer, who, two years ago, objected to this process – the Florida law during the Hillary Clinton campaign.”
When Cuomo asserted that Mark Elias was simply exercising the Democrats’ legal right to appeal the decisions of a canvassing board, Todd noted that the voting procedures that Elias now contests was a remedy to a previous problem the Democrats had in the 2016 election.
“He went to court during the 2016 election, he objected to Florida’s absentee ballot verification laws,” said Todd. “The judge in that case, appointed by President Obama, gave him the remedy he sought. Florida abided by that, the legislature in a bi-partisan, unanimous fashion, codified his answer. They put his procedures in place from that case. Those are the procedures we have followed in this election.”
