So Broward County was given until 7PM to respond with the documents that the Rick Scott campaign sued for, and they have responded. Kinda.
Here’s the lawyer for the Scott campaign:
Lawyers for Scott’s camp says Snipes has complied with the court order and 7 p.m. deadline in “some fashion.” They were handed an electronic file and still have to look through it for accounting of votes @BrowardSOE pic.twitter.com/6IsecNcOkY— Janine Stanwood (@JanineWPLG) November 10, 2018
After a court ruled she has to turn over ballot tallying info to Gov. Scott’s Senate campaign, Broward Election Supervisor Brenda Snipes appeared to meet tonight’s 7 pm deadline.— Marc Caputo (@MarcACaputo) November 10, 2018
Now the Scott campaign is reviewing the response to see if it complied with what the judge ordered
So they’re still trying to decipher if she actually responded to the request. We just don’t know yet.
But it doesn’t help that Gaetz is out there lying about what happened:
A judge ruled today that Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes broke the law and ordered her give Rick Scott's campaign an accounting of total ballots cast and a breakdown of votes by category by 7 p.m. today.— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) November 10, 2018
She’s refusing to do it. pic.twitter.com/D2NKwDY9LZ
I don’t get the point of that. I guess it helps Fox News’ ratings and keeps his constituents enraged.
Here’s her lawyer from before 7 PM:
Attorney Eugene Pettis represents Broward elex supervisor Brenda Snipes.— Nadege Green (@NadegeGreen) November 9, 2018
He says his client is prepared to turn over the records to Scott as the judge ordered by 7 p.m. And he said there's no reason for Snipes to step down. pic.twitter.com/Vc7SlGQbrS
But if you wanna see just how shady Snipes is, all you have to do is watch this video:

Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes, who has a history of corruption and incompetence, *still* won’t say how many ballots are left. pic.twitter.com/PnKVIEM1kH
Are you effing serious?
I’ll update as soon as we know more…
