Broward elections supervisor illegally destroyed ballots in Wasserman Schultz race, judge rules

DWS Precious

Circuit Judge Raag Singhal ruled Friday that Snipes destroyed public records that she still was legally required to retain and she destroyed evidence in an ongoing court case. While the original ballots in state elections only have to be kept for 12 months, they must be kept for at least 22 months in a federal election.

Snipes “has not presented any evidence refuting that the public records sought were destroyed while this case was pending before this court,” Singhal ruled.

Snipes will appeal the decision, said her office’s attorney, Burnadette Norris-Weeks.

Meanwhile, Snipes is defending herself in another lawsuit over the way the office removes ineligible voters from the rolls. That case, filed in federal court in South Florida by the conservative American Civil Rights Union, alleges Broward had more registered voters than voting-age population. Snipes office denies the charges and says ACRU is using outdated census information. Progressive groups say ACRU’s goal is to suppress minority votes, an accusation the group denies.

Before the election last year, her office mistakenly sent out some absentee ballots to voters that failed to list a popular medical marijuana measure that ultimately passed by wide margins, but not before the office was sued by the Florida chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. In another case during the election, the office mailed out about 1,700 ballots that had the word “no” in Creole where it should have said “wi” for “yes.”

Obviously she is very good at her job and destroying government documents is no big deal.  Right Hillary?
