This reeks of racism.
All this woman was doing was following the norms of “African democracy,” which is based on a vibrant cultural tradition of electoral fraud.
Just hours after finishing a tumultuous election recount, Broward Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes submitted her resignation, ending a 15-year tenure full of botched elections, legal disputes and blistering criticism.
Now that sounds like blatant anti-Semitism.
Everyone understands that “Broward County” is a codeword for “the Jews.”
Claiming that Broward County has a history of fraud is a classic anti-Semitic canard.
“It is true. She did send it,” said Burnadette Norris-Weeks, an attorney who works as counsel to the Supervisor of Elections Office.
Evelyn Perez-Verdia, a former office spokeswoman who left several years ago, said Sunday evening she was told by people in the office that the letter was sent “to Tallahassee” earlier in the day.
Norris-Weeks said she saw an early draft of the letter. In the version she saw, she said Snipes, 75, expressed a desire to spend more time with her family.
The voice mail on Snipes’ cell phone was full Sunday night, and she didn’t immediately respond to a text message.
The exact effective date of the resignation was unclear Sunday evening.
DeSantis’s swearing in is Jan. 8. Scott was elected to the U.S. Senate, and the swearing-in for that job is Jan. 3. Scott hasn’t said when he’ll leave office to become a senator, but Lt. Gov. Carlos Lopez-Cantera could be the state’s chief executive for several days in January.
During the just-completed recount of the midterm election, Scott was a fierce critic of Snipes, accusing her of years of incompetence and asking the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate what he said “may be rampant fraud.” Scott never offered any proof of fraud committed by Snipes.
Scott was elected to the U.S. Senate in the Nov. 6 election, in which final vote tallies were submitted by counties to the state on Sunday.
It’s almost as if some Jew forced her to resign because she failed to effectively swing either of these elections through fraud.
But again: investigating this would be both racist and anti-Semitic, and we just have to accept that even though there was rampant fraud and an organized attempt to fake election results which involved probably hundreds of people, Republicans just have to be happy with the fact that this time they won, and just wait until next time when the same thing happens and they lose.
That’s what we call “conservative values.”
