Florida Governor Rick Scott Recuses Himself From Certifying Election Results


Florida Governor Rick Scott

Florida Governor Rick Scott (R) who is currently embattled in a recount against Democrat incumbent Bill Nelson for the US Senate seat, announced Wednesday that he recused himself from certifying the election results.

Rick Scott recused himself from certifying the election results in 2014 and says his recusal is “nothing new.”

Gov. Scott then took a swipe at his opponent Bill Nelson, calling him “confused” and added he “doesn’t know how Florida works.”

 

RICK SCOTT: I recused myself from certifying results on the Elections Canvassing Commission in 2014, and I will do so again this year. This is nothing new. Bill Nelson is confused and doesn’t even know how Florida works- I have no role in supervising/ overseeing the ongoing recount process.

Democrat Bill Nelson previously called on Governor Rick Scott, to recuse himself from the recount process.

Bill Nelson accused Governor Rick Scott of ‘undermining the votes of Floridians,’ but didn’t say a word about Broward County elections supervisor Brenda Snipes who is blatantly defying a judge’s orders and refusing to count votes in accordance with the law.

Governor Rick Scott put up a fight and filed three lawsuits as he ramped us his legal battle against the Democrat lawyers trying to steal the election.


On Sunday, Florida Governor Rick Scott (R) filed two emergency motions in Broward County and Palm Beach County as he ramped up his legal fight going into the recount.

Governor Scott also took legal action to bar the Broward County canvassing board from counting ballots produced after the Saturday noon deadline previously ordered by a judge.

When was the last time a Democrat recused themselves?
