Judge Rules In Gov. Scott’s Favor In Broward Elections Records Request
[MIAMI.CBSLOCAL] A Broward County Judge has ruled in favor of Gov. Rick Scott and says Broward Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes must “allow immediate” viewing and copying of records that have been requested.
The judge added that it must be completed by 7 p.m.
The lawsuit in Broward filed against Snipes claimed that her office was withholding crucial voter information and has blocked access to the office. At the emergency hearing on Friday, Scott’s lawyers said this was a “simple” public records request case about access to Broward ballots, figuring out who voted, how they voted and how many votes have yet to be counted. They added that it’s not about how votes are counted or inspecting ballots.
“This information Supervisor of Elections should have already compiled and saved,” he added, “It should take 10 minutes to do.”
