Snipes: I am ready to pass the torch
(SUNSHINE STATE NEWS) – Brenda Snipes has resigned from her post as supervisor of elections for Broward County, effective Jan. 4, 2019.
“Although I have enjoyed this work tremendously over these many election cycles, both large and small, I am ready to pass the torch,” Snipes wrote Sunday in a resignation letter addressed to Rick Scott, a governor she infuriated with her election mistakes, whether unintentional or deliberate.
The Sun-Sentinel was first to report the news of Snipes’ resignation.
Republicans jumped on Snipes, a Democrat, who oversaw the hapless vote counting effort in Broward County, for committing fraud by not following the letter of the law within her constitutional office. She dismissed all criticism as politically motivated.
She was quoted by network television as saying, “I can’t wait for this to be over.”
Florida’s recount ended Sunday when all of the state’s 67 counties — including Broward — submitted their final vote totals to Secretary of State Ken Detzner.
