Rick Scott drops bombshell as GOP Senate Candidate filed lawsuits against Dem Florida election officials
The Republican candidate for Senate, Rick Scott, files lawsuits against the officials in South Florida that are in charge of election, for delaying the completion of counting of votes in mid-term elections.
Scott accused the Democrats for attempting to steal the elections and labelled it as ‘rampant fraud’ as he filed lawsuits against the election officials in high ranks on Thursday. The two counties where Democrats are pretty popular are coming under the scrutiny. The officials are continuing to report the new votes where three major races are set to go for the recounts.
Filing the charges against Broward County, the NRSC and Scott blamed officials for hiding information about votes that are casted and its counting. The information is critical and can have some serious effect on the results. Similar lawsuits are filed by National Republican Senatorial Committee and Rick Scott against the Palm Beach County as they said that election supervisor in the area are using the judgement illegally to determine the intent of the voter. It ultimately leads to wrong information surfacing up as the absentee ballots as well as the damaged or incorrectly filled out ones are being reviewed. What gives it even more heat is the fact that impartial witnesses are not allowed to monitor the procedure.
In a press conference outside of the Governor’s Mansion, the Governor of Florida, Rick Scott, labelled the elections with potential ‘rampant fraud,’ saying that “I will not stand idly by while unethical liberals try to steal an election.”
Spokesperson for Senator Bill Nelson, who is a direct competitor for the governor’s seat and a long time rival of Scott, came up with a reply on Thursday stating that “The goal here is to see that all the votes in Florida are counted and counted accurately. Rick Scott’s action appears to be politically motivated and borne out of desperation.”
The timing of the lawsuits is even more interesting because it has been right after a series of tweets which were made by Sen. Marco Rubio. In his tweets, Rubio said that the Democratic lawyers were all ready to descend on the state in a coordinated move as they are looking up to bringing a change in the results and stealing a number of races all across the state.
President also dropped a bombshell with a tweet when he said that the authorities were investigating a corruption scandal which might be associated with election in Broward and Palm Beach.
