    Recount mania! I originally was going to blast the Secretary of State in Arizona but read the explanation for the slow vote count. Apparently they're using 1980's computers to process the ballots which were set up for a time when it was mostly overseas military people mailing them in. Now 75% of the state does mail in up to election day and the system can only process about 70K or so a day. Having said that winning this race would be huge. Apparently Dems won more House seats than the GOP this election in AZ and if they pick up a Senate seat too that reminds me of how Virginia as starting to trend blue 15 years ago.

    Regarding Florida, Scott's antics do seem over the top unless he's trying to avoid a hand recount at all costs. If there is truly a 30K undercount of votes in Broward because the machine malfunctioned, only a hand recount will uncover that. If that is indeed the case (an IF at this point) he's screwed. Campaigns tend to know more than what's being reported so I'm sure they've modeled the #'s and know where the risks are. Puts all of his threats in a different context though.

    That being said, no one should run an election in which they are a party.
    BUT not all have conflict of interest. Beto being a rep and running for senate didnít mean he oversaw his race, so itís quitr different

    There's been a massive influx into AZ - moderate midwesterners that are not necessarily seniors, californians, and yes Hispanics. Can't help but think AZ will be Virginianized.

    He shouldnt need to resign, but he should recuse himself in the case of the election. He has a deputy secretary or someone else similar who can be in charge to at least give this the appearance of legitimate. Everything about the race looks fraudulent and completely rigged. I am not saying it was mind you, but you can easily make the case for it which screws the whole process.

    I also think Kemp's camp is taking the wrong tact here. They are arguing she has no path to victory which may be true...but she doesnt need one. She only needs him to drop .4%. A runoff is a victory for now.

    If the SoS still plans to certify on Tuesday then Abrams should file for an injunction on Monday.

    Rick Scott knows he is going to lose if all the votes are counted. I look forward to our resident Totally Not Trump Supporters explaining why using his current office to stop votes from being counted is ok.

    If you liked "GA GOP SoS trying to prevent people from voting in his Governor's race", you'll love its sequel, "FL GOP Gov try to stop votes from being counted in his Senate race"!

    In a perfect world, the sitting Governor should have to appoint an independent commissioner (for real - someone with no party affiliation) to run the election when cases like this come up.

    So we've gone from "early and often" to stuffing the boxes after the fact?

    Oh and apparently Fusion GPS is involved in the conspiracy to steal the Florida races. Nothing yet on whether Saul Alinksy and ACORN are involved too.

    Yeah, like it doesn't take longer to count 200,000 votes, as opposed to 20,000.
