Finally: Is Broward County’s Brenda Snipes Resigning as Elections Supervisor?
After receiving heavy criticism from Republicans across the country for her handling of the midterm elections, Broward County Supervisor of Elections, Brenda Snipes, is telling reporters “it is time to move on.”
The infamous supervisor of elections, who has a history of losing ballots and allowing felons and illegal immigrants to vote, told reporters Tuesday that it was time to move on, but that she has to speak with her family first.
Get ready, for this one, folks: Snipes says she believes she served her purpose, “which is to provide a credible election product for Broward.”
Snipes’ announcement came after a reporter asked her opinion of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush’s tweet, in which he wrote, “There is no question that Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes failed to comply with Florida law on multiple counts, undermining Floridians’ confidence in our electoral process.”
There is no question that Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes failed to comply with Florida law on multiple counts, undermining Floridians’ confidence in our electoral process. Supervisor Snipes should be removed from her office following the recounts.

Snipes was also asked Monday about lawsuits being filed regarding “issues” with ballots, forcing her to defend her character.
“I think the lawsuits, as they are written, certainly cast Aspersions on my character and usually we build character over a period of time and character is always on display and I’ve worked here for about 15 years and I have to say this is the first time that this office or I have been under such attacks.”
When asked if “mistakes” had been made in the handling of some ballots, Snipes replied, “There have been issues that did not go over the way we wanted it, so we can call it a mistake. We can call it whatever you want to call it.”
