BROWARD COUNTY (FOX NEWS) – A Broward election official said late Thursday that the county had uploaded the results of its recount two minutes after the state’s 3 p.m. deadline – making the machine recount tally void.
Instead, the results from last Tuesday’s election will stand until manual recount totals come in Sunday at noon.
In another direct accusation of deliberate misconduct by Florida election officials, GOP Senate candidate Rick Scott’s campaign accused embattled Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes of intentionally submitting late results to invalidate them. In the recount, Scott’s Democratic opponent, incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson, lost more votes than Scott — a net gain of 779 for Scott.
The news of the bungled ballot count comes after Snipes boasted about never missing a deadline.
“We are excited to be at this point,” she said Thursday afternoon.
