Remember when Hillary was running around saying she was appalled that Trump might not accept the election results if she won? Well, she didn’t win. And now, it’s totally cool for Democrats to refuse to admit defeat in elections. All across the country elections are still being decided and things are especially messy in Florida and Georgia.
In Florida, they are going through a messy recount. Here’s the latest on that.
From The Daily Caller:
Two counties in Florida did not submit the results of the election recount in the required time frame, which would have otherwise increased the Republican candidates’ leads over their Democrat challengers, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
Both Broward and Hillsborough Counties failed to meet Thursday’s deadline to submit the tallies from the machine recounts and instead ended up submitting the unofficial vote count reported on Saturday, according to the Tampa Bay Times. The recount would have ultimately increased the margin for both Republican Gov. Rick Scott and Rep. Ron DeSantis’s races by a couple hundred votes.
It’s a total dumpster fire down there. Counties down there can’t even manage to make deadlines.
From Judicial Watch:
On a day when a federal judge said Florida is the “laughingstock of the world election after election,” all but three of the state’s 67 counties met the recount deadline. Hillsborough and Palm Beach counties failed to complete machine recounts of their midterm election ballots by the 3 p.m. Thursday deadline and Broward missed it by just two minutes. A Judicial Watch investigative team is on the ground monitoring the debacle in south Florida and attorneys were present in Broward until the recount was completed just minutes before the clock ran out. However, the county uploaded the results two minutes too late which means the state will likely stick to the original tallies submitted on Saturday.
At stake are three statewide races—U.S. Senate, governor and agriculture secretary. The original ballot count released by Broward County had Democrat incumbent Senator Bill Nelson with 471,334 votes compared to Republican Governor Rick Scott’s 211,119. The machine recount showed very little change, with Nelson at 469,949 votes and Scott at 210,513. Scott has a statewide lead of 12,403 votes (4,097,689 votes compared to Nelson’s 4,085,086). In a statement Scott, a two-term Florida governor, said: “Last week, Florida voters elected me as their next U.S. Senator and now the ballots have been counted twice. I am incredibly proud and humbled by the opportunity to serve Florida in Washington. Our state needs to move forward. We need to put this election behind us, and it is time for Bill Nelson to respect the will of the voters and graciously bring this process to an end rather than proceed with yet another count of the votes – which will yield the same result, and bring more embarrassment to the state that we both love and have served.”
In Georgia, not only is the Democrat gubernatorial candidate who lost trying to pretend she didn’t lose. She’s about to demand a DO OVER.
From Associated Press:
Stacey Abrams’ campaign is preparing an unprecedented legal challenge in the unresolved Georgia governor’s race that could leave the state’s Supreme Court deciding whether to force another round of voting.
The Democrat’s longshot strategy relies on a statute that’s never been used in such a high-stakes contest. It is being discussed as Georgia elections officials appear to be on the cusp of certifying Republican Brian Kemp as the winner of a bitterly fought campaign that’s been marred by charges of electoral malfeasance.
Another vote? They can’t be serious. These people are delusional and you’re really seeing how desperate they are for power.
