MIAMI – Republican Ron DeSantis’ margin of victory in the Florida governor’s race narrowed Wednesday as additional votes were tallied, coming close to the threshold required to trigger an automatic recount.
The new totals show that DeSantis is ahead of Democrat Andrew Gillum by 0.57 percent of the vote or 46,722 votes. The state will conduct an automatic recount if the margin falls to 0.5 percent
Tightening margin in Florida governor’s race could trigger automatic recount
Here is the thing: Gillum conceded. When a candidate concedes it is usually because his internal people have been hitting the calculators and simply find out that the math ain’t there and tell the candidate. These are no dumb kids hired to do Social Media but elections’ experts that will make sure they see stuff coming to prepare ahead. These people must have told Gillum: “Bubba, you are done. Call it and let’s go get drunk.” And Gillum did concede.
The Senate race? Well, shit happens and there might be legitimate cause. But suddenly the Governor’s race tightens because of ballots coming “late” from Broward and Palm Beach, heavily Democratic counties?
Once is an Accident.
Twice is a Conspiracy.
There are no Coincidences.
PS: Broward Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes is called by some the most corrupt elections official in the state. One of many things she did was illegally destroying ballots that had been requested for an investigation.
The Broward County Supervisor of Elections Office violated state and federal laws by destroying ballots from a 2016 Congressional race too soon — and while the ballots were the subject of a lawsuit against the office, a judge has ruled.
The decision stems from Canova’s bid to unseat Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz in the Democratic primary, a race he lost convincingly, at about 57 percent to 43 percent, or 28,809 votes to 21,907.
Canova, who was checking for voting irregularities in the race, sought to look at the paper ballots in March 2017 and took Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes to court three months later when her office hadn’t fulfilled his request. Snipes approved the destruction of the ballots in September, signing a certification that said no court cases involving the ballots were pending.

Notice that the destruction of ballots favored one Congresswoman Wasserman Schulz?
Now, do you still think me overly suspicious?

Gee let me guess, Snipes in Broward again.
It’s not surprising that they just gin up the votes they need- it’s not like anyone goes after Democratic officials for vote fraud.
And Gov Scott could have removed her from office but he didn’t!
Yes, Scott could have removed her, but I’ve seen politicians do strange things when it comes to dealing with political corruption and as pointed out elsewhere here, ‘being nice’ isn’t necessarily the reason.
[…] history of screw ups and right down suspiciously criminal behavior when it comes to elections. As I mentioned in a previous post, in January this year she was found guilty of illegally destroying ballots but she was never removed […]
Smells just like cook co, Chicago vote counting. How many do we need? No problem
