What's the matter with Florida? Corrupt local officials

The latest numbers from the Florida Division of Elections show the vote spread right around 15,000 votes, with Scott leading, out of 8.17 million votes.

Plessinger went on to say that because of the message from the Department of State, her agency is not actively investigating anything related to the election, including the officials in Broward and Palm Beach counties. "He himself said that as ballots are being counted it is tightening", Marc Elias, lead recount attorney for Nelson's campaign said during a telephone news conference Friday morning.

"Over the past two days, Snipes' office has refused to give either an accurate count of outstanding ballots or where they come from, all while the Democratic candidates continue to pick up tens of thousands of new votes".

Gillum already conceded the race on Tuesday night, but he tweeted Thursday night after Scott announced his lawsuits against the two elections supervisors.

County election officials are required to submit unofficial election results to the Florida Division of Elections at noon on Saturday.

Nelson's video statement Friday is his first, other than written statements released by his campaign.

Currently, Republicans Rick Scott and Ron Desantis are winning the senatorial and gubernatorial races by 12,562 and 33,684 votes respectively, according to the New York Times.

"Lock her up" and "Stop the steal" were among chants heard at the demonstration. Shortly after, President Donald Trump tweeted that law enforcement was looking into another big corruption scandal, claiming "Florida voted for Rick Scott!".

"Well it could be because if you look at Broward and Palm Beach to a lesser extent, if you look at Broward County, they have had a awful history", the president told reporters on the White House South Lawn. "And if you look at the person, in this case a woman, involved, she has had a awful history".

$10 a day childcare prototype sites on the way
In all, parents of around 2,500 children will benefit from the prototype sites, which are being offered throughout the province. The Province also promoted the Child Care Fee Reduction, which has reduced the cost of almost 52,000 childcare spaces across BC.

This led Andrew Gillum to reply to the President, "What's embarrassing to democracy is not counting every vote - and you, of course".

Don't get lost here, Rubio is pointed out the questionable recount tactics in South Florida, raising awareness to the open door for lawsuit and shady track record of the election supervisors there. Once completed, if the differences in the races are at 0.25 percentage points or below, a hand recount will be ordered, said Department of State spokeswoman Sarah Revell. The Broward County ballot was designed so that the Senate race appeared in the lower left-hand corner, below the instructions, spurring the theory that many voters missed the contest.

"Look, look, bad things have gone on in Broward County".

Their race, and the one for governor, appear headed for mandatory recounts, which would further delay a final outcome.

DeSantis has said little about the recount and is instead proceeding as if he won the election, appointing a transition team and preparing to take office in January.

To put that figure in perspective, just 62 votes have been rejected in neighboring St. Johns County, compared to 38 rejected ballots in Nassau County and 10 rejected ballots in Clay County. The state conducts an electronic recount when the margin falls below 0.5 percent.

Trump, who campaigned for Kemp, weighed in on the Georgia election as well on Friday, sarcastically suggesting on Twitter that Russian President Vladimir Putin should be blamed for any missing votes in the state.

In recent court filings and media appearances, Scott and his attorneys have alleged criminal fraud-up to and including the fabrication of votes-after Broward's typically glacial pace of counting ballots severely cut into Scott's lead against incumbent Democratic Senator Bill Nelson.
