As Florida braces for a statewide recount in both the Governor and Senate races, protesters gathered at the epicenter of the firestorm raging over the State Governor’s race as well as the Senate race—the Broward County Supervisor of Elections Office, where Supervisor Brenda Snipes held a Press Conference absentia.
Investigative journalist Laura Loomer had a front row seat for the action and asked the hard questions no one else dared to ask.
Loomer asked Snipes’s lawyers how the voters of Florida can expect to have any confidence in the integrity of the election process in Broward County when Brenda Snipes “was found by a judge to have destroyed ballots in the race between Tin Canova and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz?”
Loomer’s questions came with a follow up, and she asked Snipes’s lawyers to explain how it’s transparent to have a woman who’s been found to have destroyed ballots overseeing an election.
Snipes attorneys stated that those ballots had been counted and weren’t relevant to this election, a true deflection from the matter at hand: Brenda Snipes has a well known documented history of destroying ballots and breaking the law.
Loomer shot back after the attorneys tried to dismiss her, “That’s an offense, right? She destroyed ballots in an election. Highly unethical.”
Another reporter questioned why Supervisor Snipes wasn’t at her presser, to which the attorney stated “Dr. Snipes is back doing her duty in her office,” which was another lie, given that the official recount of ballots wasn’t scheduled until 7 am the following day.
Later, when Loomer demanded to know why Snipes isn’t “in jail” for her election-related crimes, the room erupted for the second time in an angry mob against Loomer. Interestingly, reporters for all major networks inside the room appeared sympathetic to Snipes, opting to ask tough questions that are on the minds of every Florida voter.
Twitter lit up with responses as Loomer live streamed the event:
I watched it Live😆
You ask the questions everybody wants an answer to, and that nobody wants to answer! #Loomered
In the video stream of the press conference, a liberal reporter tried to get slick with Loomer and ‘splain how Loomer needs to learn proper decorum and allow others to also ask questions, Loomer slammed her, telling the world she’ll not apologize for having an innate sense for a story, a fierce determination to tell it, and willingness to as the necessary and uncomfortable questions that others are unwilling to ask.
Loomer added, “I’ll be sure to tell Jim Acosta next time I see him”.
Here’s Sarasota’s ABC7/WWSB’ coverage of the Presser. Loomer jumps into the fray at 5:58.
On Saturday afternoon, the Florida Secretary of State ordered a statewide recount for the ballots in the Governor and Senate races.
Loomer is on the ground in Broward County providing coverage for Big League Politics as the statewide Florida recount convenes.
