Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes Submits Resignation

Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes Submits Resignation

A career marked by incompetence and accusations of malfeasance.

Controversial Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes has submitted her resignation just hours after a hand recount confirmed that Rick Scott won the Senate election.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel was the first to report the resignation:

Just hours after finishing a tumultuous election recount on Sunday, Broward Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes submitted her resignation.

“It is true. She did send it,” said Burnadette Norris-Weeks, an attorney who works as counsel to the Supervisor of Elections Office.

Evelyn Perez-Verdia, a former office spokeswoman who left several years ago, said Sunday evening she was told by people in the office that the letter was sent “to Tallahassee” earlier in the day.

Norris-Weeks said she saw an early draft of the letter. In the version she saw, she said Snipes, 75, expressed a desire to spend more time with her family.

The exact effective date of the resignation was unclear Sunday evening.

Norris-Weeks said she believes it was effective Jan. 2. Perez-Verdia said she was told the effective date was Jan. 5.

NBC6 Miami has confirmed the report:

Brenda Snipes has submitted her resignation as the Broward County supervisor of elections.

A representative of Snipes confirmed the news to NBC 6 on Sunday.


Here is the resignation letter.

she’s likely hoping this will keep her from being indicted, tried, convicted and jailed for election tampering, fraud, RICO, etc…

    I very much doubt there is any evidence that she has committed an offense. I’m not even sure whether she has committed one, but I’m reasonably sure that if she has there’s no evidence of it.

      As a long time election commissioner, I disagree. Fraud was as plain as day. I have discussed the signs here previously. She is the prime suspect because she did not report it. If I was in her position, I would have had the Attorney General’s office send in a team by 10 AM. That would not have been difficult. The Deputy AG would have been awaiting my instructions.
      There was an incident in another adjoining county where a ballot box was found in a trunk. My counterpart did exactly that. The Lt. Gov. and the AG had a team in within an hour and removed all county officials.
      And this is a blue state. There was no fraud. But that was not the point.

      While you may have your doubts; Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi without naming Snipes directly had opened an investigation and come across significant evidence of criminal behavior. That may well be the reason why the Democrats gave up.

      As an aside, you legal prognostication record here is far from sterling. For example:

      1 You view of the law regarding Acosta decision differed from the Judge’s view.
      2. You proudly asserted that Federal Courts do not get involved in State elections. Guess what — <b?they did

        Milhouse in reply to dystopia. | November 19, 2018 at 11:16 pm

        I have not seen anywhere that Bondi suspects Snipes of any criminal behavior, let alone thinks she can find evidence of it. You admit she didn’t mention Snipes in this context, so your speculation is just that.

        My view of the law in the Acosta case remains the same. I think the judge got it wrong.

        Federal courts can only get involved in state elections if some violation of federal law is alleged.

          My view of the law in the Acosta case remains the same. I think the judge got it wrong.

          You are entitled to your views. However, in a Court the judges ruling on the law are what counts. Not your opinions or even the opinions of the litigants.

          Can you share with us a bit about your legal background. What it your background, legal training and education give your opinions any weight?

          I have not seen anywhere that Bondi suspects Snipes of any criminal behavior, let alone thinks she can find evidence of it. You admit she didn’t mention Snipes in this context, so your speculation is just that.

          In a criminal investigation, suspects are often not named publicly unless law enforcement needs help in finding those persons.

          I won’t go into possible State charges. But Federal charges include 18 U.S.C. § 1346. The mere act of of submitting results late – if done intentionally with an eye towards partisanship would violate that Statute. If she deliberately lost or found ballots she can be prosecuted under the Hobbs Act 18 U.S.C. § 1951, If she transmitted via electronic means results she new not to be accurate she can be prosecuted under 18 U.S.C § 1343.

          The decision to prosecute is complex. It involved the evidence, likelihood of conviction, and even temporal political considerations.

          Since you seem to have a need to compulsively have the last post on every subject I repeat:

          Can you share with us a bit about your legal background. What it your background, legal training and education give your opinions any weight? More importantly, how do you know more about the election process than the Commissioner of Elections who posted above. Are you a Commissioner of Elections anywhere. Please share with us your day job

          NoNonsense in reply to Milhouse. | November 20, 2018 at 8:13 am

          Milhouse –If your legal prognostications on this website are any indication, I’d strongly advise you not to bet on any sporting events. Stay away from Las Vegas also. Your legal acumen seems best summed up by this commentator.

          I too wonder what is your day job. You really seem to grasp law only on the surface – only as a math problem. You manipulate statutes as if they were math theorems. That is not how the law works. Perhaps you are a high school Math teacher.

          I suspect you hold a very low level job and won’t take this opportunity to share with the LI Community. Please share with us, so we can know more about the real Milhouse.

          If you are going to offer legal opinions – opinions that are often wrong, I think the community should no something of your background and qualifications.

      Who’d you consult – Jeff Sessions?

    “It’s time for me to move on; I’ve done as much damage here as I can get away with.”

Just a dodge to avoid prosecution. The GOP party of perpetual losing will most likely play along.

    Milhouse in reply to beagleEar. | November 19, 2018 at 12:35 am

    Prosecution for what? What offenses do you think (a) she has committed, and (b) can be proved against her?

      Sadly, I think you are correct. There are two ways to make sure the election is rigged the right way. One is to rig it, the second is to hire people who you know will rig it but not say a thing or give them a single order. Then with ‘clean’ hands, you go to the microphone or the jury, proclaiming how pure and legal the election was without having to lie a single time.

        Milhouse in reply to georgfelis. | November 19, 2018 at 12:58 am

        It is also possible that she hasn’t rigged anything. I don’t trust her not to have, but I’m not aware of any actual evidence that she has.

        Tom Servo in reply to georgfelis. | November 19, 2018 at 10:08 am

        There is actually a third way, one that is much more common and one which I believe was the case here – and that is to advance someone to the head office who is totally incompetent and completely clueless as to what is going on, someone who has the same effect on the organization as a potted plant sitting in the lobby. Then, all the underlings can do whatever they want, leave no paper trail, erase all the records, compromise every system, and the person who is at the top will be sitting there saying “huh? wut? where’s my pudding?”

        I think she escapes prosecution because she is nothing but an incompetent fool. And I think that was the plan when she was placed into that office. Find out who she was fronting for, those were the authors of the fraud. But I’m sure they’re Untouchable.

          Ignorance of the law is no excuse.

          Curious how Snipes’ ‘incompetence’ always seems to work in the left’s favor.

          Occam’s razor says she’s a criminal. An FBI investigation could prove it. If they nail her, she’ll flip on her handlers and then we’ll see some real change.

          Remember, Sherlock Sessions has been put out to rino-rat pasture. There’s a new sheriff in town.

      MattMusson in reply to Milhouse. | November 19, 2018 at 6:52 am

      There is a reason those 2000 votes went missing.

      carabec in reply to Milhouse. | November 19, 2018 at 7:18 am

      BS is guilty of Malfeasance and Incompetence in Office. She should have been fired years ago. Why wasn’t she that’s the $64,000 question!

I’m willing to bet that her AA gravy train ain’t over. Likely there’s a pension to be had as a reward for her incompetence.

Eastwood Ravine | November 18, 2018 at 10:24 pm

The spotlight on her was a little too harsh on her this time around. Better for the Democrats to find another electioneer.

    PersonofInterests in reply to Eastwood Ravine. | November 19, 2018 at 5:27 pm

    Rigth……….. Why not just hire the man with the hidden hands standing behind the curtain that had the money to pay for this Tyranny. His evil hands have been revealed time and again via the numerous “Front Organizations” that he funds and that should be prosecuted under RICO. But the thing is, he’s bought our politicians and District Attorneys to keep his Satan Incarnate Mug out of prison.

Effective Jan. 5, so Rick Scott won’t have to accept the resignation himself and live with the stigma? While denying DeSantis the privilege of firing her?

SCREW THAT! She needs to be in PRISON!

    If she’s not, she’s off the hook much like the sicko women who perjured themselves – for profit – at Justice Kavanaugh’s hearings.

    After Sherlock Sessions, is there ANYTYHING the damn Justice Department recommends for prosecution?

Called it.

Resigned with full benefits. ZERO meaningful consequences for her blatant corruption and attempt to steal the election.

Pick your balls up and visit CONSEQUENCES or the Democrats are going to continue this bullshit.

I think she has a great shot of knocking Al Sharpton out of his spot at MSNBC

AlaskanGhostWalker | November 19, 2018 at 12:05 am

If they do not charge and jail her then that means there is no real rule of law that can or will be applied to the democrat party! So Hillary Obama Holder all past and present DOJ and FBI and CIA are all above the law!


    We all got that memo in 2008. We thought the DOJ was turned around with Sherlock Sessions, but we got another memo.

    Like with the presidency, we have one last chance with Matt Whitaker. If we allow him to be corrupted, PDJT has lost his chance to turn the nation around from the b-line it is on to the abyss.

      Btw, the DOJ website has finally changed: the creepy, thick black headliner and yellow details put in place by odumbo’s AG eric holder are gone, and the blue flag of the DOJ files in the middle of the page.

      Prior to odumbo, the DOJ website was all red, white and blue.

      Though under Sherlock Sessions, yellow was the appropriate color for the DOJ.

DouglasJBender | November 19, 2018 at 2:27 am

I think she has a good chance of getting the lead role in the greatly anticipated upcoming black feminist myopic, “Einstein in Wakanda”.

Snipes, 75, expressed a desire to spend more time with her family.

Ooohh, what a giveaway!

Obviously some heavyweight “suggested” to her that she resign, and suggested it in no uncertain terms.

Bucky Barkingham | November 19, 2018 at 7:23 am

Both JEB!, who appointed her, and Gov Scott failed to remove her from office for any of her previous nonfeasance and misfeasance. Scott nearly lost due to his fecklessness.

regulus arcturus | November 19, 2018 at 8:48 am

Prosecute her or this will continue and likely get worse.

But what about her DOKTORATE? Maybe she can find a meaningful purpose in life by understudying with Maxine Waters or Princess Sheila.

Since the resignation takes effect January 4, 2019, Rick Scott will already be a senator. The decision to replace her is on the Lt. Governor or Desantis himself.

Ignore Milhouse, a perpetual lefty troll.

Look under the rocks, and you’ll see a lot of Brenda Snipes.

Our government is so corrupt.

PersonofInterests | November 19, 2018 at 5:16 pm

If Snipes thinks this is the way to avoid being held to account, then there are more in this Country who want to see her proven very wrong.


In other countries, she would be put up against a wall or walked to a scaffod for this treason, but we are OK with her living out the rest of her awful Demtard Life in a prison jumpsuit.

No, we are not willing to let her just walk away to do like so many of the “crooks” in government do: Retire and collect their pensions. She should lose her right to vote or be near a Ballot Precint forever.
