RECOUNT REJECTS: Broward County Misses Recount Deadline… By TWO MINUTES

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.16.18

Broward County election officials missed Thursday’s 3pm deadline by just two minutes this week; effectively nullifying the extended vote and prompting state officials to use the original tally from Election Day.

“The top election official in Florida’s heavily Democratic Broward County said late Thursday that the county had uploaded the results of its recount two minutes after the state’s 3 p.m. deadline – making its machine recount tally void. Instead, the county’s results from last Tuesday’s election will stand until manual recount totals in the state’s closely contested Senate race come in Sunday at noon,” writes Fox News.

News of the botched deadline comes just hours after Election Supervisor Brenda Snipes bragged of never missing a deadline.

“We are excited to be at this point,” she claimed Thursday afternoon. “An election like the one we just finished almost has so many moving parts and so many components.”

“Basically, I just worked my a** off for nothing,” said one official.

RECOUNT REVOKED: Palm Beach Misses Deadline, County's Original Vote Will Stand

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.15.18

Florida’s disastrous election recount suffered another significant set-back Thursday, when Palm Beach county missed the 3pm deadline for ballot submissions; meaning the original Election Day results will stand.

According to Fox News, “As a result of the county failing to make the deadline, the only one of Florida’s 67, the numbers from the initial count, which were completed Saturday, will stand.”

“The reality is that we were very close two nights ago and then our machines went down,” said Palm Beach Election Supervisor Susan Bucher. “It’s not for lack of human effort.”

“You see that we’re working 24/7,” she said. “It’s an unusual request to make of your staff. You know, can you leave your kids behind? Can you stay here and I’ll feed you sub sandwiches and pizza? And you’ll work your brains out and we’re trying to meet a deadline that, really, reasonably shouldn’t be there.”

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.08.18

Democrat Senator Chris Murphy urged liberal activists across the country to “adjust their schedules” and “get down to Florida” if Republicans “stop all ballots from being counted.”

Murphy posted his comments on social media after state officials weighed a manual recount after Republican Rick Scott held a slight lead over Democrat Bill Nelson.

“Republicans will try to use the courts to shut down a full recount. Just get ready for this – adjust your schedules bc we may all have to get down to Florida if they try to to use the courts to stop all ballots from being counted,” tweeted the left-wing lawmaker.

The move echoes similar comments from Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum, who demanded that “every vote” be counted and urged supporters to contact their local County Supervisors.
