First Marco Rubio sent up a flare to draw attention to the absurd post-election shenanigans in Broward and Palm Beach Counties. Monica Showalter collects Rubio’s tweets here. Drawing on the work of Mollie Hemingway and others, John has more here.
Florida Fist District Rep. Matt Gaetz has taken up the case as an observer on behalf of Governor Scott (I believe) and as a citizen journalist posting on his Twitter accounts here (official) and here (personal). In a contentious interview with Chris “Fredo” Cuomo on CNN, Rep. Gaetz tried to explain why what happened in Broward County is unacceptable.
Quotable quote: “They’re hiding the proof. They’re playing hide the ball with the freaking ballots!”
65 of the 67 counties got it right; it wasn't broken for them, they got it right. Orange County is huge, they got it right. Our most populated county, Miami-Dade, did everything right. This is not a Florida problem. This is a Broward County problem. #FloridaRecount2018 pic.twitter.com/uVfKAlvqlu
