Private Vehicles Potentially Transporting Florida Ballots Caught On Video
A concerned citizen filmed private vehicles transporting Florida voter ballots. The video is causing concerns due to the controversial Florida voting recounts potentially taking place in a Senate and the Governor’s race.
The transportation of voter ballots using private transportation violates the chain of custody requirements applied to paper ballots, pending the video is authentic. Law professor and politician Tim Canova shared the video on his Twitter account last night.
“Were the ballots destroyed & replaced by set of fake ballots? Investigate now!” Canova wrote.

Canova received only 5% of the voting share in Florida’s 23rd congressional district where Debbie Wasserman-Schultz won.
Florida Senator Marco Rubio, who has been an outspoken critic of Florida’s midterm election voting debacle, also shared Canova’s Tweet that features the video. Rubio is calling on the media to investigate the circumstances of the ballot transport. Clearly, we aren’t holding our breath over such things, but the intensifying rhetoric from Rubio, a prominent Senator, is applying severe pressure on Broward County Supervisor of Elections Dr. Brenda Snipes.
“This video, posted by an Independent Cong candidate [Tim Canova] in 18 (who was endorsed by Bernie Sanders in 16) purports to show Broward County ballots being transported from polling places in private cars. Has anyone in local media looked into this claim or asked elections dept about it?” Rubio Tweeted.
Snipes has held the position of Supervisor of Broward County elections since 2003.
Senator Rubio is not the only South Floridian asking questions of Snipes. Florida’s Local10’s Jeff Weinsier attempted to interview Snipes outside of a bathroom in Broward County. Snipes seemed frustrated by Weinsier’s questioning over the election debacle.
“Could I please get a moment to go into the room and find out?” Snipes said, seeming aggravated by the gathered reporters. “OK, when I come back I’ll let you know.”
“But, Dr. Snipes, it is now Thursday,” Weinsier said. “We are still counting ballots in Broward County.”
Worse more, Broward County refuses to disclose how many “uncounted ballots” remain.
The door for massive-scale voter fraud is now wide open.
Florida Election History Is Dismal
Florida has an obvious history of voting debacles, dating back to Al Gore and George Bush’s recount. But this latest ballot mishandling seems particularly egregious. Incumbent Senator Bill Nelson has massively gained votes on Governor Rick Scott. Palm Beach County and Broward County, two Democrat strongholds, are the only two counties reporting ballot inconsistencies.
How could an entire state, including areas devastated by a category 4 hurricane, comply with reasonable and legal voting standards; yet, two densely democratic counties are still counting votes?
It isn’t difficult to see where “conspiracy theories” might arise.
Scott’s lead is now a mere 15,092 votes.
Rick Scott Sues Elections Supervisors
National Republican Senatorial Committee alongside Scott filed lawsuits against Broward Supervisor of Elections Brenda C. Snipes and Palm Beach Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher.
“Every Floridian should be concerned there may be rampant fraud in Palm Beach and Broward counties,” Scott said to Local10.
DeSantis vs. Gillum Race Similarly Compromised
It isn’t just Rick Scott and Bill Nelson’s Senate race that’s now “up for grabs.”
Andrew Gillum lost by nearly 36,000 votes on election night. But change is in the air. Only 6,700 votes now separate DeSantis and Gillum. That’s astounding.
Without honest voting processes, we are no country at all. Every American should be concerned over the Florida debacle. Unfortunately, the need to win is greater than the need to be a free Republic. That might be the scariest part in all of this.
