Anthony Sabatini, a state-level Republican Representative in Florida, is furious that the Secretary of State for Florida won’t authorize a ballot audit for five major counties that Donald Trump lost in 2020, so he is working on legislation to authorize an audit. There is absolutely no evidence of any kind of problems in these counties, other than the fact that Trump didn’t carry them in the last election, and that’s enough for allies like Sabatini to throw a temper tantrum. Farron Cousins explains what’s happening.

The Florida secretary of state announced recently that they would not, they would absolutely not follow through with the idiotic Republican requests in the state to conduct a ballot audit of five Democrat, heavy counties that Joe Biden won in the 2020 election. Trump lost them, but Trump’s still carry the state of Florida. But the secretary of state here in Florida said, we see no need to do this. There’s not, you know, widespread claims of fraud. There’s no reason to audit these five counties. Well, a state Republican representative by the name of Anthony Sabatini, who happens to be a huge fan of Donald Trump has decided that he still wants to make Trump happy because believe it or not folks, it’s actually the Republicans who are suffering from the Trump derangement syndrome. And so he has filed legislation with the state
That would force
Republican governor Ron DeSantis to create these independent commissions, to audit the ballots of any county that has more than 415,000 residents. A district. I’m sorry. Sorry, not county district. Oh no, I’m sorry. It is counting. What am I thinking here?
Either way, any county
With a population greater than 400, 15,000 Sabatini is legislation says, governor, you have to audit these ballots
For no other reason than I want to make Donald Trump happy. The
Five original counties, by the way that Republicans wanted to audit because Biden won them. And Trump did not. We’re Hillsborough, Miami Dade, Broward, orange and Palm beach, which yes, democratic stronghold here in the state of Florida,
But Trump’s still one the state.
But even that wasn’t good enough folks. And that’s, what’s so scary about this. That’s what’s scary about Sabatini is legislation one because we have a Republican controlled legislature here. And I don’t think we have enough. Level-headed Republican politicians in our legislature to stop this becoming a reality.
That’s terrifying, but to anywhere
Republicans lose, even if they ultimately win the grand prize, if they lost a couple battles along the way, they’re going to open that up for audits. They’re going to open it up for their own dirty tricks. Cause don’t get me wrong. I have no problem with people going back and recounting,
You know, checking, voting
Machines, things like that. That’s accountability. That’s what Democrats have been calling for for, for decades. Now we’ve been talking about the problems with voting machines. We’ve been talking about how easily hackable they are. So I have no problem with going through and legitimately doing these things. I do. However, have a problem. When Republicans take it upon to pick other Republicans, to look at democratic ballots and try to find any reason at all, to throw them out because that’s what this is. That’s what’s happening in Arizona. It’s what’s happening in Wisconsin. It’s what’s happening in Georgia and now they want to bring it to Florida and they will. They likely will.
I see no reason why
Our Republican controlled government here is going to strike this down. It would only benefit them in the long run,
But let’s not forget all of this. All of it came about because any
Place where Donald Trump doesn’t win,
Become suspect in the eyes of these cult leaders. No matter how many decades Democrats have won these particular
Areas, suddenly it’s a problem,
Even though everybody knows it’s not, this is just a bunch of disgusting little kiss asses, trying to make Donald Trump feel better about himself. .
