Florida Judge on Election Recount “Ramp Down the Rhetoric”
“Ramp down the rhetoric” is what Broward Circuit Chief Judge Jack Tuter said during an emergency hearing that was requested by Governor Scott’s legal team. “I am urging because of the highly public nature of this case to ramp down the rhetoric.”
Republicans, without a shred of evidence, have been running to the media yelling election fraud to anyone that is willing to listen. The problem: there’s zero proof of fraud. This has led to multiple lawsuits filed in both state and federal court.
Multiple lawsuits have been filed in state and federal court regarding the recount in Florida for the midterm elections.
President Trump, the leader of conspiracies, lies and rhetoric:
“An honest vote count is no longer possible-ballots massively infected. Must go with Election Night!”
The Florida Election should be called in favor of Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis in that large numbers of new ballots showed up out of nowhere, and many ballots are missing or forged. An honest vote count is no longer possible-ballots massively infected. Must go with Election Night!

The fact that the President tweeted that on Veteran’s Day, meaning thousands of votes cast by the military while overseas won’t be counted, we’ll leave that for another day.
In an opinion piece written for Fox News, Vice President Mike Pence says the military has no greater friend than President Trump. Seriously?
“If someone in this lawsuit or someone in this county has evidence of voter fraud or irregularities at the supervisor’s office, they should report it to their local law enforcement officer.”
“If the lawyers are aware of it, they should swear out an affidavit, but everything the lawyers are saying out there in front of the elections office is being beamed all over the country. We need to be careful of what we say. Words mean things these days.” – Broward Circuit Chief Judge Jack Tuter
Republicans have even accused Brenda Snipes, the Broward County Supervisor of “unlawful counting practices.” As a result, Scott filed a lawsuit to have law enforcement be in possession of the ballots and voting machines when not in use. That lawsuit was dismissed, but Snipes agreed to have three more police officers present during the counting process, not including security guards and video cameras that are already there.
