Broward County supervisor of elections Brenda Snipes has pulled back her resignation and plans on fighting Gov. Rick Scott’s suspension.
On Friday, Gov. Scott suspended Brenda Snipes over incompetence and malfeasance in her role as a supervisor of elections. It was a long time coming, but Snipes was scheduled to receive at least $70,000 or more in pension for the role she played in Broward County elections.
The problem is, the role was corrupt. Snipes has been a bad seed ever since 2003 when then Gov. Jeb Bush appointed her for the role of supervisor of elections. I do not understand how she was reelected three times, but she might have had something to do with that also.
With Scott suspending Snipes, her pension was in jeopardy; she felt the best way to try to get her money was to fight the Governor and the label placed on her. Someone needs to tell her it’s a losing battle.
Gov. Rick Scott late Friday suspended embattled Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes even though Snipes had already agreed to step down from her post in early January. Scott replaced Snipes with his former general counsel even though Peter Antonacci has no elections experience.
Snipes responded by rescinding her previous resignation — and will now be “fighting this to the very end,” her attorney said during a Saturday news conference.
“We believe these actions are malicious, we believe that the allegations that are set forth in the governor’s executive order are done for the purposes of embarrassing Dr. Snipes – embarrassing her and tarnishing her record, and we will be fighting this. In addition to that, Dr. Snipes herby rescinds her resignation that was set forth which would have been effective on the fourth of January,” Snipes’ attorney Burnadette Norris-Weeks said in a press conference.

Cynthia Busch, chairman of the Broward County Democratic Party, feels something is awry here with Snipes replacement, who she called a “stalwart Republican.”
You can wrap this in whatever excuse you wish, Snipes didn’t belong in the job she was given, and the people around her were afraid to remove her, and that includes Gov. Scott.
I guess now he views things a lot differently since he was caught up in her web of corruption.
