It sucks, but it’s the way of the political world, and the reason many of us voted for the current POTUS.

I’ll have a hard time restraining myself from administering a beating the next time I see the former Hon. Jeff Flake at the local taco shop. The dude fucked over his party and constituents and now we have a whackadoo in his place. What does he care, though? His family was already loaded, and over the past decade he made enough contacts in DC to ensure he has sufficient graft for his family for decades to come.

This is all your fault, JAFO.

Thanks, but I'm chasing a Govt site. Is there a Govt site that has up-to-date results? Where do the media get their stats from?

Apart from "thin air" that is.

Don't overlook the fact she commited crimes under 3 governors including Scott and low energy Jeb and they did nothing.

Well, the bitch counting the votes, Brenda Snipes, doesn't even know how many votes she "needs" for Gillum or Nelson to win. She is the gubmint.

Florida Democrat Party alters and distributes election forms? Election fraud in slow motion.... LINK

Quote:
TALLAHASSEE — The Florida Department of State last week asked federal prosecutors to investigate dates that were changed on official state election documents, the first voting “irregularities” it has flagged in the wake of the 2018 elections.

The concerns, which the department says can be tied to the Florida Democratic Party, center around date changes on forms used to fix vote-by-mail ballots sent with incorrect or missing information. Known as “cure affidavits,” those documents used to fix mail ballots were due no later than 5 p.m. on Nov. 5 — the day before the election. But affidavits released on Tuesday by the DOS show that documents from four different counties said the ballots could be returned by 5 p.m. on Thursday, which is not accurate.
Quote:
In an email chain released as part of the Department of State's Tuesday document dump, Citrus County Supervisor of Elections Susan Gill last week told DOS officials that a voter who received one of the cure affidavits with the wrong date had also received a call from a number identified as the Tallahassee office of the Florida Democratic Party, an indication the party was reaching out about her vote by mail ballot.

"When I called it, it is the Democratic Party of Florida," she said in a Nov. 8 email to DOS officials.
Quote:
Another email included in the DOS document dump included correspondence from Okaloosa County Supervisor of Elections Paul Lux, who also said he believed the affidavits were from the Florida Democratic Party.

"Please pass the word to the FDP that they can't arbitrarily add their own deadline to your form or VBM cures!!" Lux emailed DOS officials on Nov. 9. "This is crazy!"

In a Tuesday interview with POLITICO, Lux said he received an email from someone sending a cure affidavit marked with the wrong date that included a Florida Democratic Party email address. The email does contain the email address votes@FloridaDems.org, which is associated with the party.

I can't recommend https://www[.]revolutionspodcast[.]com/ enough for a good review of the various revolutions that have happened through our history. You're correct, I think; the conservatives aren't going to take to the streets in effective numbers any time soon. The Progressives, on the other hand, are vigorously pursuing a revolution "by any means necessary".

Yeah, and I'm guessing it will be when the shit sandwich we call Social Security comes to a head. When grandma, grandpa, and Johnny on disability are told their benefits are getting cut, and everyone else has to pay more taxes, well...Cold and hungry it is...

At this point, I think they are playing up the incompetence in an attempt to take the focus off the corruption/fraud. "We're not dirty! We just really, REALLY fucking suck. Oh, and you're racist!"

The voter fraud of this election was a dry run for 2020. They will review lessons learned and go harder then.

All part of their plans.

I believe you’re right. I’m sure there are boxes of ballots already filled out for 2020 just waiting to be “found”.

I know someone that worked for Rubio for years and worked in Florida politics obviously for a while. His objective critique of Nelson was that he has been able to run a long time really focusing as a SME on space. Well, with the death of the Shuttle program... that was his silver lining of the program ending and his prediction of Nelson's eventual loss.

So many of his comments and stances have been at odds with a lot of Florida's culture for a while. I will never forget him telling reporters he was immune to Zika.

Funny some were talking about birthright citizenship issue a bit earlier in this thread. Some subversive at the Atlantic must have been reading because they've started writing NPC-code for the listless masses in order to counter any such proposal. Using the standard buzzwords such as "institutionalized terror" and "racism". The whole thing reads like the facebook rant of a hysterical middle-aged childless cat lady.

yep, that's exactly what my wife said the other day. She said, "What do you want to bet that the Dems come up with some bullshit, vote counting snafu in 2020? They're just trying to see what they can get away with this time."
So being the good husband I am, I bet oral sex with her. If she's right..., If she's wrong...
