Scott says that 15,000 new votes were found in Palm Beach County, that had not been accounted for. In Broward County, Scott says that 78,840 additional election votes have been counted since polls closed.
“Every Floridian should be concerned there may be rampant fraud happening in both Broward and Palm Beach counties,” the governor said.
Following the announcement, Senator Bill Nelson released the following statement: “The goal here is to see that all the votes in Florida are counted and counted accurately. Rick Scott’s action appears to be politically motivated and borne out of desperation.”
