LAUDERHILL, Fla. — Embattled Broward Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes is personally overseeing the search within her headquarters here for purportedly missing ballots to account for the 2,040-vote discrepancy in the number of votes cast in her county during the Midterm Elections.
The discrepancy came in the difference of total votes registered from the initial machine count and the results from the machine recount numbers reported earlier yesterday, Breitbart reports.

In fact, Snipes is blaming RACISM for the mess, according to The Guardian.
In a short interview, Snipes, 75, said: “You know, the protesters have been claiming stuff all week so whatever they’re doing, that’s what they’re doing. That’s what they feel like they need to do.”
Asked if she felt it was racially motivated, the supervisor replied: “Probably. Probably.” She declined to elaborate.

Another issue has been the increase of 80,000 votes in Broward County following the election.
The New York Times reported on the issue:
The vote count in heavily Democratic Broward County increased by about 80,000 in the four days after the election, possibly because of mail-in, provisional, overseas and military ballots that come in late and were legally counted after Election Day.
But no other counties showed were identified publicly with such a high number of additional ballots registered after the election, and Broward County’s election supervisor, Brenda C. Snipes, offered few explanations.
Noteworthy to outside election experts were the variances in vote tallies, which effectively meant that thousands of votes weren’t counted. “If I were a campaign, I’d be yelling and screaming,” said Charles Stewart III, director of the Election Data and Science Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. “I’d want a hand recount of every single ballot.”
Snipes acknowledged the processes her office have been using aren’t perfect and that some non-citizens and felons have voted despite not being eligible — especially right before major elections when groups are actively registering new voters.
Snipes said her office would consider using the Social Security Death Index as a way of tracking deaths of voters that occur in other states.

Brenda Snipes Allowed ILLEGAL ALIENS And FELONS To Vote- Illegally DESTROYED Ballots
Florida Gov. Rick Scott, whose senate election is up for recount, called on Florida’s Department of Law Enforcement to investigate possible irregularities in ballot offices in southern Florida amid questions about the slow pace of Broward’s ballot counting and past wrongdoings by Snipes.
A judge ruled that Snipes destroyed ballots too soon in a critical 2016 Congressional race in which former Democratic National Convention (DNC) Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz won reelection.
Snipes was also ordered by a judge earlier this year to change the way she handles mail-in ballots after her office was accused of opening them in secret. ~ Aaron Klein
