Betty, Adam, FL commentors — you have my sympathies. I had not realized how dedicated Florida members of the GOP Death Cult were to preserving, if not surpassing, Florida’s infamous ‘Brooks Brothers Riot’ history of blatant voter suppression!
Rick Scott, Florida man and garbage person, actually wants it to be a law that any votes you’re not able to count in 24 hours get tossed in the trash. That’s actually what he’s proposing. https://t.co/g5Y1mOA3Qk

Rick Scott’s bill proposes that every single state takes all the mail-in ballots that could not be counted within 24 hours of the election and THROWS THEM IN THE TRASH.
When Republicans show them who they are, believe them. And they are not a party that believes in elections. https://t.co/oPi9JQkeeK

This, right after Florida AG’s assault on restoring voting rights to Florida citizens…
As some Republicans shift uncomfortably and say that of course Trump didn’t mean anything undemocratic by saying he wouldn’t cede power, Florida Republicans bend over backward to maintain the racist exclusion from the franchise that the electorate tried to repeal already. https://t.co/Kn6R09PsnX

I have to assume all this is meant to signal public fealty to the Squatter-in-Chief, not to Florida voters?
