The Hill reported:
Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) filed two emergency motions in Palm Beach and Broward County courts on Sunday, ramping up legal efforts as recounts began in the state’s contested Senate race.
The motions request that the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) and county sheriffs impound and secure all voting machines, ballots and tabulating devices when they are not in use.
Scott’s campaign also filed a complaint in Broward court asking a judge to bar the county canvassing board from including ballots counted after a noon Saturday deadline in the final vote tally.
“The Broward and Palm Beach County Supervisors of Elections has already demonstrated a blatant disregard for Florida’s elections laws, making it more important than ever that we continue to do everything possible to prevent fraud and ensure this recount is operated responsibly,” Chris Hartline, a spokesman for Scott’s campaign, said in a statement.
“Senator-Elect Rick Scott will continue to fight to protect the will of Florida voters.”
ALL Florida counties met the latest deadline on Saturday at noon to turn over their election totals.
Governor Rick Scott leads Sen. Nelson by 12,562 votes after three days of of Broward and Palm Beach County ballot manufacturing operations.
This is down from his 80,000 vote lead on election night.
Massive voter fraud is being witnessed by observers in both Palm Beach County and Broward County.
The Democrats are going to steal Florida if Republicans don’t put up a fight.
