Broward County “Misplaced” Over 2,000 Ballots
In the midst of the Broward County hand recount on Saturday, Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes said her office misplaced over 2,000 ballots.
The county’s eternally beleaguered Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes said they either misplaced, misfiled or mixed in with another stack.
One thing she said she was sure of: “The ballots are in this building.”
“There would be nowhere else for them to be,” Snipes said. “The ballots are in the building. The ballots are in the building.”
Snipes claimed an election worker likely misplaced the ballots saying, “I’m not blaming anyone, but many of our team members were not as well trained as some others.”
The embattled official has come under fire for her handling of elections throughout the years. She has a long history of destroying ballots, losing ballots, and allowing illegal aliens and felons to vote.
She recently suggested that racism–and not her inability to effectively and accurately oversee elections–was the likely reason for the backlash against her.
When asked by The Guardian if race was a factor in the backlash, Snipes replied “Probably. Probably.”
Many have called on Snipes to resign and–it appears–they may get their wish.
She told reporters earlier this week that it was “time to move on,” but that she has to speak with her family first.
