Putin And Russian Election Interference? Perhaps Americans Should Be More Concerned About Crooked Politicans And Good, Ole American Voter Fraud

American intelligence officials have warned of Russia’s efforts to influence our elections, but perhaps there is a greater threat in our home-grown crooked election officials and election fraud.

We need better oversight of our election process, especially where one party has an overwhelming majority and influence. We also need to have voter ID laws enacted. 

We need ID to do the most mundane of transactions in America, yet we allow people without proper ID to elect our leaders. How many non-citizens voted this time? How many dead people?

Now the results of the mid-term elections are in, but they are being disputed and lawsuits and recounts are going forward. A center of this storm is Broward County, Florida.

Kaitlyn Schallhorn at offers a piece on the controversy surrounding the county’s supervisor of elections.

Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes is at the center of the explosive Florida ballot-counting battle, with the state's Senate and gubernatorial elections on the line — but it's hardly her first voting controversy.

“She has had a horrible history … and all of a sudden they’re finding votes out of nowhere," President Trump, referring to Snipes, told reporters Friday.

Outgoing Florida Gov. Rick Scott, the GOP Senate nominee locked in a tight and bitter battle for the lead against incumbent Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, accused Democrats of conducting a coordinated effort to "steal" elections in a campaign of possibly "rampant fraud," in a lawsuit Thursday.

Razor-thin margins in Florida's bitter Senate and gubernatorial races are raising the specter of possible recounts, potentially prolonging two of the most closely watched contests of the nation's midterm elections. A recount is mandatory if the winning candidate's margin is less than 0.5 percentage points when the first unofficial count is verified Saturday by Florida's secretary of state, according to state law.

In an emergency complaint, Scott accused Snipes of being "unwilling to disclose records revealing how many electors voted, how many ballots have been canvassed and how many ballots remain to be canvassed," and charged that the uncertainty "raises substantial concerns about the validity of the election process."
