Some 38,000 ballots were rescanned in the middle of the night in Hillsborough county in a process that delayed the result, was never adequately explained, for reasons which were flimsy at best..
The number, 38,000, coincidentally would have cleared a recount hurdle in one the tightest gubernatorial races in Florida history.
Hillsborough elections officials were investigated by FDLE for alleged sunshine violations related to inquiries concerning the machines, proceses etc. The FDLE headed by a Rick Scott appointee,dropped the case.
Florida Attorney Gen. Pam Bondi refused to consider the case and referred it to Department of state, headed by Rick Scott appointee, Sec. Ken Detzner.
the 2012 election
Your Republican led Florida Legislature intentionally loaded the 2012 ballot with amendments, and their entire wording, in order to exacerbate the long lines.
Poling places were closed ahead of the election
Early voting was shortened to add to the trouble
The legislature enacted laws ahead of the election, making voter registration drives more difficult.
Districts were manipulated ahead of the election by the republican majority to favor incumbents in at least two congressional districts, tainting the entire process with partisan back-dealing.
The state of Florida was essentially disenfranchised and did not participate in the 2012 Presidential race.
Florida is now notoriously bad at holding elections, as a result of partisan tricks and tampering, tainting both the name of our state and the republican party.
Florida continues a tradition of both republican and democratic gerrymandering in a"same as it ever was" mien. And this is NOT okay.
