In a story that may remind you of the famous Florida recount of 2000, a ballot box was discovered last weekend inside the Avis car rental center at the Fort Lauderdale Airport.
An Avis employee contacted Broward Republican Executive Committee official Richard DeNapoli after discovering a large grey crate marked “provisional ballot box.”
DeNapoli immediately contacted the local sheriff’s office, and a handful of officers were sent to investigate.
Big surprise: the box was full of votes in support of losing candidates like Bill Nelson and Andrew Gillum.

What’s really funny is the Fort Lauderdale Airport is located in Broward County – which just so happens to be near the district of Congresswoman and former DNC Chairman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. In 2016, Wasserman-Schultz was kicked out of the DNC for illicitly supporting Hillary Clinton (over Bernie Sanders) before she was confirmed as the party’s presidential nominee.
Broward County, which is heavily Democratic, is the only county in Florida that has failed to submit all ballots during the legal timeframe. In charge of overseeing elections in Broward County is Brenda Snipes, who has a long history of suspicious “mistakes” like finding ballots after elections are over, leaving key measures off ballots, and “accidentally” mixing rejected ballots with valid ballots
“[Brenda Snipes] has a horrible history…and all of a sudden they’re finding votes out of nowhere,” said Trump on Friday.
Republicans have pointed to Snipes’ history to support their accusations of electoral malpractice, while Democrats continue to claim the mistakes are due to “human error.”
But such “mistakes” are unacceptable in a Democracy – especially for a key swing state like Florida. And especially considering the small margin by which GOP candidates Rick Scott (for Senate) and Ron DeSantis (for governor) defeated their Democratic opponents.
“They found 78,000 new votes since Election Day, two days ago, in Broward County, and 15,000 more votes in Palm Beach, we don’t know how many more votes that they are going to come up with, but it sure appears that they are going to find as many votes as they can to win the election,” said outgoing Governor Rick Scott.
“So, I have asked the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to do an investigation. We filed a lawsuit, we are going to fight this, and we are going to win.”
Editor’s note: As a former intelligence officer, it is often the case in covert operations that feigned incompetence is a cover for sinister action. “Finding” a box of ballots within the middle of purposely generated chaos seems a convenient way to introduce fraudulent ballots into the counting process. They did not need many.
