A visibly frustrated Gov. Rick Scott on Thursday accused “unethical liberals” of trying to steal a U.S. Senate seat from him, as his campaign filed two lawsuits against Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes and Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher for allegedly refusing to release details on voting tabulations and hindering the processing of absentee ballots, respectively.
“I will not sit idly by while unethical liberals try to steal this election from the great people of Florida,” Scott told reporters as he stood outside the Governor’s Mansion.
Before the lawsuit was filed Thursday, Snipes said her office has counted every vote cast in the general election in Broward except for provisional and military ballots from overseas. She said the canvassing board will finish reviewing about 250 provisional ballots on Friday and has 10 days from the election to count the military votes.
