CNN and MSNBC not only denying that Democrats were breaking the law, they even lie about them not being Democrats.

Andrea Mitchell falsely insisted Monday that controversial Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes “is a Republican,” and hardly constitutes a “Democratic official” doing “the bidding of Democratic candidates,” amid accusations of election fraud.

On her MSNBC show on Monday, anchor Andrea Mitchell claimed that Brenda Snipes, Supervisor of Elections for Broward County, Florida, is “hardly a democratic official.” Snipes is in fact a Democrat.

“We should also point out that Brenda Snipes in Broward County is a Republican appointed by former governor, then-Governor Jeb Bush,” said Mitchell. “So, she was put in by a Republican governor after the mess that we all remember from 2000. And she’s hardly a Democratic official, or someone doing the bidding of the democratic candidates there.” More

Even Jeb Bush took to Twitter to bash Brenda Snipes by writing: “There is no question that Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes failed to comply with Florida law on multiple counts, undermining Floridians’ confidence in our electoral process. Supervisor Snipes should be removed from her office following the recounts.”

Broward County election chief Brenda Snipes is in hot water and will likely be forced from office by Florida Gov. Scott or his probable successor, Ron DeSantis.

She should be removed now! An independent review of what has occurred needs to happen. Certainly there are provisions for removing at best a grossly incompetent or at worst an administrator executing a fraud.
