Is there anything that counts as “evidence” of vote fraud occurring in Broward or Palm Beach Counties? Read from Francis Menton what might be considered to be evidence:
- On election night Broward County reported that some 634,000 votes had been cast in the county. Clearly they had the means available to know the number of people who had cast votes by that time, and were required to announce the number. But over the next two days, the alleged number of votes cast in Broward County increased dramatically, to 712,840 as of the night of November 10. Is this evidence that vote fraud could be occurring? Absolutely!
- Then there is the issue that the vote counting process is required by state law to be subject to observation by the public, and by representatives of the candidates. On November 9 Republican Senate candidate Rick Scott obtained a court decision that Broward and Palm Beach counties were in violation of Florida open records law by failing to allow access to the vote counting process, together with an order requiring the election supervisors to make the information available by that evening. The Palm Beach County supervisor announced that she would not comply. Is this evidence that vote fraud could be occurring? Absolutely!
- How about the Affidavit of one Chelsey Marie Smith, submitted by Matt Caldwell, the candidate for Florida Agriculture Commissioner whose apparent election is also in jeopardy from the discovery of new votes in Broward and Palm Beach Counties. Ms. Smith asserts under oath that she personally observed employees of the Broward County election supervisor filling out stacks of blank ballots in a secret locked room. A copy of the affidavit can be found at this link. Admittedly, this was in 2016, in connection with a different election. But would the existence of such conduct once be evidence that could be presented as to whether it might be occurring again? Yes.
The Manhattan Contrarian points out, although none of these things constitutes definitive proof that vote fraud is occurring, there is definitely “evidence.” More than enough to justify a thorough police investigation of what has occurred.
