GOP Senate candidate Rick Scott files bombshell lawsuits accusing Dem Florida election officials of trying to ‘steal the election’

download (1)

Accusing Democrats of conducting a coordinated effort to “steal” elections in a campaign of possibly “rampant fraud,” Republican Senate candidate Rick Scott filed explosive lawsuits late Thursday against the top election officials in two heavily Democratic counties, as they continue to report new votes and three major races in the state appear headed for recounts.

In their lawsuit against Broward County, Scott and the National Republican Senatorial Committeee (NRSC) allege that officials there are continuing to hide critical information about the number of votes cast and counted. And in a parallel suit against Palm Beach County, Scott and the NRSC charge that the election supervisor there illegally used her own judgment to determine voter intent when reviewing damaged absentee ballots, while refusing to allow witnesses to monitor the process.

Jim Mathias The End Of The Road

March_2016_Committee_Hearing

Sometimes you stick around just long enough you wake up one day and everything you knew is gone, that my friends is what happened to Jim Mathias. Jim has served the Eastern Shore with distinction and I thank him for all of his years of service.

I knew Four years ago when he barely defeated McDermott , that if the right candidate came around Jim was going to be a goner in 4 years and sure enough I was right. Mary Beth Caruzzo was the right person to run and I really felt the minute she filed it was a done deal. I also think so many of the full color negative tone mailers sent out by the Democratic committees turned more off than they won over and that hurt Jim badly.

Mary Beth will make a great Representative for us in Annapolis.

Statement from Governor Larry Hogan on Federal Court Redistricting Ruling

img_0311

ANNAPOLIS, MD – Governor Larry Hogan today issued the following statement regarding the U.S. District Court ruling in the case of Benisek v. Lamone:

“This is a victory for the vast majority of Marylanders who want free and fair elections and the numerous advocates from across the political spectrum who have been fighting partisan gerrymandering in our state for decades. With this unanimous ruling, the federal court is confirming what we in Maryland have known for a long time – that we have the most gerrymandered districts in the country, they were drawn this way for partisan reasons, and they violate Marylanders’ constitutional rights.

“We remain steadfastly committed to moving forward in an open and transparent manner that is free of the partisan influence that has dominated the redistricting process in Maryland for far too long. It’s past time for Marylanders to choose their representatives instead of politicians choosing their constituents, and today’s ruling is a major step in that direction.”
