Count All The Votes – Even The Illegal Ones.

As the fight rages over votes in south Florida, charges of incompetency are flying. We have no idea how an area with more poll workers per capita than Brevard County screwed this past election up so badly. In a just world, heads would roll, but this is politics and government jobs which means no one is ever accountable for anything.

However, one incident that has happened should anger every law abiding citizen who believes their right to vote needs to be protected.

While counting votes on Friday, a provisional ballot was discarded because the person who had cast the vote was not a US citizen. Seems easy, right?

The lawyers for both DeSantis and Gilliam objected to the ballot not being counted which means they wanted a non-citizen’s vote to be counted. Here’s a partial transcript of what happened:

Lawyers for the Florida Democratic gubernatorial and Senate candidates objected Friday to the rejection of a provisional ballot cast by a noncitizen, according to a transcript obtained by Fox News.

The incident occurred during a canvassing meeting Friday in Palm Beach County, where provisional ballots were being examined. According to the draft transcript of the meeting, taken by a court reporter hired by the Florida Republican Party, a provisional ballot was ordered excluded from the count, as it came from a non-U.S. citizen.

“First one of these we’ve seen,” said Judge August Bonativa.

“Not a U.S. citizen, not counted.” said Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher, according to the transcript.

It was at this point where lawyers representing Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum and Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., issued objections — although they did not give reasons for those objections. The objections were noted, but the vote was still not counted.

The Nelson campaign distanced itself from the objections, which it said that it had not authorized.

“The lawyer who was present was not someone we had authorized to make such an objection. Noncitizens cannot vote in U.S. elections,” Marc Elias, recount attorney for the Nelson campaign, said in a statement. The Gillum campaign did not respond to a request for comment.

So the lawyers representing the Democratic candidates during the vote counting were not authorized to say anything?

How stupid do these people think we are?

Somehow the rest of the state can count votes without problems. Yet somehow South Florida cannot manage to do what everyone else can.

Because of their actions, lack of actions and incompetence, the rest of Floridians have to pay.
