You think NC has an election fraud problem...check out Florida!

It's been this way here for 20 years: ballot design, hacked DREs, and ballot manipulation. The repubs will continue to "win" elections in FL until the system actually counts the votes. Chances are that several Governors and a few Presidents who took office were not really elected. The repubs cheat in Florida.

Vote-by-mail scandal in North Carolina exposes Florida’s lax laws
Florida used to prohibit collecting ballots and used to require a witness signature. But the state's Republican-led Legislature did away with the laws years ago.

The case highlights a notable difference between the two states, however: North Carolina has much tougher laws than Florida when it comes to voting by mail.

Although Florida, like many states, has imposed strong voter ID laws for casting a ballot at a polling place, it's done virtually nothing to stop fraud in the vote-by-mail process.

Most everywhere in Florida, it's not illegal to collect ballots, like it is in North Carolina, where it's a felony. Rather, it's only illegal to pay someone to collect ballots in Florida, a loophole that allows campaign volunteers and even candidates themselves to go door to door collecting voters' ballots.

Thousands of mailed-in Florida ballots not counted, officials say

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida officials say thousands of mailed ballots were not counted because they were delivered too late to state election offices. Three statewide Florida races, including the contest for governor, went to state-mandated recounts because the margins were so close.

The Department of State late last week informed a federal judge that 6,670 ballots were mailed ahead of the Nov. 6 election but were not counted because they were not received by Election Day. The tally prepared by state officials includes totals from 65 of Florida's 67 counties. The two counties yet to report their totals are Palm Beach, a Democratic stronghold in south Florida, and Polk in central Florida.

In the battle for agriculture commissioner, Democrat Nikki Fried won her election by 6,753 votes. Republican Gov. Rick Scott ousted incumbent Democrat U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson by slightly more than 10,000 votes.

A Trump-loving pastor just shot a woman dead and sodomized two others in horrific sex assault

Gun-related tragedy struck once again this week, this time at a Catholic Supply store in Ballwin, Missouri, a suburb of St. Lous. USA Today reports that a former pastor has been arrested after allegedly attempting to coerce three women into having sex with him at gunpoint. When one of them resisted, he shot 53-year-old Jamie Schmidt in the head and forced the other two to submit to his “deviant” demands.


Turtle Found by U.S. Coast Guard with $53 million Worth of Cocaine Attached to It

A giant sea turtle had to be rescued by the U.S. Coast Guard after it became entangled in a rope attached to packages filled with millions of dollars of cocaine on Tuesday.

The Coast Guard cutter Thetis, which is stationed in Key West, Florida, was on a 68-day deployment when it came across the turtle trying to escape from 26 bales of cocaine.

The crew noticed a large debris field on Tuesday while on a patrol, and discovered the turtle stuck among the bales which the Coast Guard estimates contain over $53 million of cocaine.


Not sure how effective that wall will be across the Gulf of Mexico.

Petition for Florida to count every vote...

Sign if you wish...there are hearings in court now.





The elephant in the sunshine state....

if it's a close race here, the repubs CHEAT!

We all remember the hanging chads of 2000. In 2004 I witnessed a DRE flipping votes and called the election supervisor. She had the cops escort me out of the voting area. We've had reports of mailed ballots found in the trash. Only this morning, there were friends on FB reporting their mailed ballots were "received" but not "tabulated", usually because a volunteer didn't think their signature matched.....it goes on and on and on...too many reports and investigations over the last 20 years to even put in a post. Notice how the mailed paper ballots favor the Democrats, but then we are supposed to believe that those long lines were many, many more retired voters and WASPs than the obvious young people and hispanics standing there on TV?!?

The repubs here shave votes, cheat on counting, and hack anything electronic.

The only way to win Florida is to win by overwhelming margins. Did Gillum and Nelson win? Probably by 5-7% like the polls indicated. Will they be declared the winner, probably not.

With all the nutty amendments we voted on last Tuesday, you would think we could get one to demand countable paper ballots. That's the only way to fix this mess.

Any update on Florida at 2PM?

Here in Pinellas Democrats were ahead slightly with early and mailed votes. The repubs have caught up and gone ahead a little with voting today. Independent turnout is very large - and hopefully Gillum is ahead.

I haven't seen any numbers on the local news.

So far in Pinellas County, FL (Clearwater, St. Petersburg)...looking very interesting...

early voting is high.
https://www.votepinellas.com/Election-Information/Elections/Current-Upcoming-Elections/2018-General-Election/Voter-Turnout

Democrats: 102,213
repubs: 102,067
NPA: 51,027
Other: 1813

So far, 38.56% have voted.

Let's hope this continues on Tuesday. Usually the early vote goes to the GOP, because the older folks vote early and with mail in ballots. If the trend holds, we will have a Democratic Governor!

AM Joy is really good today, but not many discussions here...

Stacy Abrams was a highlight, but lots of other interviews about voting rights.

Obama was here in Florida yesterday - still amazing. Gillum had to quit campaigning because of another shooting in Tallahassee......

If you haven't voted - go vote and take someone with you. If you have already voted, then go find a non-voter and drag them to the polls.



Revealed: Rick Scott's financial link to botched SunPass contract

http://steveschale.squarespace.com/blog/2018/10/19/florida-2018-peyton-manning-days-18-until-the-election.html


TALLAHASSEE — Gov. Rick Scott has financial ties to the vendor that operates the troubled SunPass toll-collection system.

Scott's financial link to the SunPass vendor is at least the seventh reported example of the wealthy governor's personal investments in corporations that do business with or are regulated by the state he governs.

Private investments made by the Scotts have raised alarms before about a possible conflict between the governor's duties and his personal life. Other investments that posed questions involve health care, a high-speed rail system, a natural gas pipeline, prescription drugs, mosquito control and an oil services company.

The blind trust has been a subject of legal challenges. A case pending in the First District Court of Appeal would require Scott to disclose more details about his blind trust.
