Skip to comments. Florida Recount: Judge Extends Deadline for Palm Beach County[FL] [Is this coming to YOU?]
Posted on 10/31/2020 1:04:58 PM PDT by SES1066
Judge Karen Geivers ruled Tuesday to extend the recount deadline for Palm Beach County until November 20 in Floridas U.S. Senate race, according to reports. ===== The extension comes after Sen. Bill Nelsons (D-FL) legal team filed a lawsuit in a federal court this afternoon in a bid to extend the deadline for recounting votes statewide.

In 2018, Florida voted for state offices and US Senator (Bill Nelson D incumbent) on 6 November. By the 10th, most of the counties had reported their counts BUT the 'D' heavy counties of Florida's SE Coast, Palm Beach County (PCB), Broward and Miami-Dade, were slow to report. By a week later, 13 Nov., Palm Beach County, under its Supervisor of Elections (SOE), Brenda Snipes (D), 15 years experience, still had not finalized and 3 races were open, Governor, US Senator and Florida Commissioner of Agriculture. All were under a 1% difference in their totals.
A local judge extended her deadline to 20 Nov. while Sen. Nelson pursued a state-wide recount or his race against Rick Scott. At one point, there was a report that the tabulators were running so hard that they were smoking. While Florida Law requires the SOE to provide within 30 minutes of poll closing a total of ballots cast and number left to count, she did not comply. Another law required a status report every 45 minutes, again she didn't. Instead there were overnight reports of 'D' increases against 'R' leads in these races still open.
Even now, I cannot, myself, find when this fiasco ended in November 2018 except to report the results. Then FL Governor Rick Scott (R) beat Sen Nelson by 10k / .0012 for the US Senate. Rep Ron DeSantis beat Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum (D) by 32k / .0039 for Governorship. The FL Agricultural Commissioner was won by Broward County native Nikki Fried (D) by 6.7 / .0008 on a total vote 150k less than the Governor or Senate Races. Ms Fried got 100k plurality in this county.
Why did I dig this up? Because this is what we can see coming this Tuesday, 3 November 2020. PCB SOE Snipes was fired by new Gov DeSantis, she protested, she resigned but then her firing was confirmed by the elected Florida Cabinet. Was this fiasco incompetence or fraud, that question is not answered. What is known is HOW the national MSM reported it during the ongoing 'count'. NPR, Yahoo and all, reported that Trump and Rubio were complaining but their near-universal response was "no proof of fraud!"
Anybody think that, no matter what smells from the 'D' vote counters in the coming weeks, the MSM LEFT response will be "no proof of fraud!"
As an aside my son who lives in Palm Beach county voted today. He said the polling place was fairly busy with campaign dre for both sides standing just outside the limit for campaigning
Can it go to the Surpremes?
And will Amy stop thinking that the right thing to do is recuse herself?
She’s a Justice. That’s all that matters.
Oh, yeah, reminiscent of the Broward and Palm Beach counties in the 2000 election.
This is from 2 years ago.
Honestly, I think the initial vote tallies are going to put Trump so far ahead that there won’t need to count, recount and recount the recount.
Judge Karen Geivers was elected, not appointed.
Ah, I saw 2018 like ten times but there were so many words that my ADD kicked in!! :)
There was a time when I would have been embarrassed.
but by now, everyone knows what I’m about :)
Thanks for correcting me though.
It would have been one more thing I worried about!
I am the same way. I think faster than I can type and end up dropping words. When I leave out a “not” it can be embarrassing.
The path for Biden are judges,USPS and every other criminal election act.....to be the LAST one counting.
I hope our side has super smart and savvy people to counter what they are doing and will do.
Not in Florida, Governor Desantis appointed a very strong conservative FL SC
People need to quit posting old stuff. Things are confusing enough.
Yeah someone else told me.
I have the attention span of an 8 year old with a short attention span :)
Seeing the year 2018 a million times should have been a clue :)
Just remove this 2018 item. local elections.
Yeah, we saw that, too. Mostly for Biden, just one Trump lady. Also, on the way out was a huge cooler filled with big bags of food (free lunch!) for certain people who obviously knew in advance to ask for it. Hmmm. Isnt that similar to free cigarettes for those who came to vote for the democrat? Seems unseemly.....
PS, my brave friend took one of those bags. Loaded with all kinds of food, weighed a ton.
Dino Rossi won on election night. All of a sudden, ballots were appearing out of nowhere. The "recount" started. I think it took 3 "recounts" for Christine Gregoire (Dem) to win the race. At that point, they stopped counting.
I fear something similar may happen during this Presidential Race.
Paraphrasing here, but Trump has been strongly warning today, we are in for days or weeks of counting/recounting ballots, and massive fraud, SPECIFICALLY BECAUSE SCOTUS is now forcing different states to essentially violate their own election laws, and NOT end ballot counting on 3 NOV.
Clearly, SCOTUS has decided states no longer have the right to determine their own election laws.
This is our current SCOTUS.
And the ruling is all over the place.
Please God, make it an overwhelming win on the 3rd or 4th.
I feel like I am just ignoring the fact that hell will break out in this country no matter what happens.
Well..it’s not a fact.
but it is a strong possibility
It’s been a rough year :)
