Our elections in Florida are in a sad state and a total embarrassment for everyone who cast their ballot in good faith.
Dems set up a firing squad by forming a circle?
Give me a break.
Those were due by nov 8. Why wouldn’t they be dated nov. 8?
Wow. Talk about shooting themselves in the foot—or is there a greater conspiracy here?
What’s the big deal? There was a typo ffs.
People get until Saturday to fix their rejected ballots unless Rick Scott (with his appeal) is able to void this judge's ruling. Eh?
Quote from this article:
“The precise issue in this case is whether Florida’s law that allows county election officials to reject vote-by-mail and provisional ballots for mismatched signatures — with no standards, an illusory process to cure, and no process to challenge the rejection — passes constitutional muster,” Walker wrote. “The answer is simple. It does not.”

Pam Bondi needs to recuse herself too! 🤔
Florida Gov. Rick Scott will step down from the state panel responsible for certifying the results in the state’s highly contested elections.
The commission is a three-member panel (Pam Bondi on the panel) that officially signs off on election results in state and federal races.
Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi is one of the two hand-picked officials whom Defendant Scott appointed to the [Elections Canvassing Commission], which has ultimate authority over the review and certification of the election that Defendant Scott is hoping to secure,” the court record says. “Together, Defendant Scott and Bondi have a blocking position on the ECC and could certify an election result over any dissent.”
But nobody talks about Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi (Trump's pal) who is lobbying Trump to replace Session as US Attorney General
Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi’s acceptance of $25,000 from Donald Trump has fed allegations the past three years of pay-for-play involving complaints about his real estate seminars.
