With less than a week to go before Election Day, evidence of voter fraud has already emerged in the all-important swing state of Florida that has the Supervisor of Elections of Broward County looking at a lawsuit to be filed as early as Thursday morning.

Writing “in response to reports that the office is engaged in ongoing violations of Florida law governing the canvassing of ballots,” the state’s GOP Chair, Blaise Ingoglia, demanded that Dr. Brenda Snipes, Supervisor or Elections, stop “these illegal actions immediately.”

Florida law provides strict guidelines governing the opening of vote-by-mail ballots, which Ingoglia says have been violated.

Specifically, the mail-ins must remain sealed until canvassed – or counted – by the county board in charge, but the Broward County Board has not met to conduct the canvass since before the ballots could be cast legally.

“Given that the canvassing board has apparently not conducted any vote-by-mail ballots, your office has no legal authority to open these ballots,” wrote Ingoglia.

The problem?

Tens of thousands of the mail-in-ballots have already been opened in violation of state law.

Broward County, which figured prominently in the 2000 Bush-Gore vote dispute, runs Democratic by a margin of 2-to-1.

The letter goes on to allege that Snipes has prevented registered voters from filing a protest with the canvassing board pursuant to Florida state law by allowing the ballots to be opened, which then bars any protest.

Ingoglia wraps up the letter by claiming “irreparable harm to the Republican Party of Florida – and its voters,” giving Snipes until close of business on Wednesday to respond and explain how she intends to both correct the violations that have occurred so far and what steps she will take to prevent any future violations of the state voting laws in her county.
