[Ed. – The agriculture commissioner race, you’ll remember, is especially significant because the ag commissioner administers concealed carry licenses. The Democrat is a progressive leftist who traipsed around the state with Andrew Gillum during the campaign and has an anti-gun agenda endorsed by the Everytown group, among others. Nothing said by Brenda Snipes’s office is now believable on its face; it’s likely they’re trying to “find” additional votes to ensure no further recounts of the ag commissioner race, in which Democrat Fried has supposedly pulled ahead.]
Amid the ongoing hand recount for Florida’s U.S. Senate and commissioner of agriculture contests, Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes said her office has misplaced more than 2,000 ballots.
Snipes said the 2,040 ballots “are in the building” – referring to the Broward County Supervisor of Elections Office in Lauderhill.
The ballots were discovered missing after there was a discrepancy between the recount returns and the original unofficial returns. Snipes said some members of her team did not have as much training as others and possibly misplaced the ballots in the wrong tray during the machine recount.
