Late Sunday evening the Ft. Lauderdale Airport was shut down due to a suspicious package left outside of one of the terminals. Reports are coming in that an Avis rental car employee discovered provisional ballot boxes left in the back of a rental car that had just been returned by a Broward County employee.
Laura Loomer and others working with her tried to gain access at the airport but was turned away by Broward County Sheriffs.

This comes nearly an hour after an @Avis employee tipped off FDLE about finding a box of SOE supplies & a box marked “provisional”.
Then a “bomb threat” was called in shortly after. https://t.co/mD9Wzr5XOo

Even members of the media are being denied entry at the moment. #BrowardCounty pic.twitter.com/oDdBazaOpt
She did, however, have a source on scene, who provided her additional details.
Source who is inside the @Avis at Fort Lauderdale airport tells me that officers are now inside filling out paperwork looking at the boxes which reportedly are marked as SOE and “provisional”. Avis employee contacted FDLE after finding the boxes in a back of a rental.— Laura Loomer (@LauraLoomer) November 12, 2018
BREAKING: I can confirm 2 Broward County Sheriff’s deputies just responded to @Avis at Fort Lauderdale airport.— Laura Loomer (@LauraLoomer) November 12, 2018
I can also confirm the box found says “Provisional”.
I obtained video of the boxes and police responding inside the Avis.
I have the police report number too. https://t.co/07sXQOroDA
Loomed shared photos of the ballot boxes:
EXCLUSIVE PHOTO: An SOE box with the word “PROVISIONAL” was found by an @Avis employee in the back of a rental car at #FortLauderdaleAirport tonight. Last person to drive the car was a Broward County employee with @Broward.org email address. @browardsheriff responded to scene. pic.twitter.com/cAGE1e37xt— Laura Loomer (@LauraLoomer) November 12, 2018
Now I’m going to ask the question.— Laura Loomer (@LauraLoomer) November 12, 2018
Did @browardsheriff Scott Israel order #FortLauderdale airport to be shut down over a “BOMB THREAT” to divert from the fact that an @Avis employee found a PROVISIONAL BALLOT BOX marked from Supervisor of Elections (SOE) tonight?#LOOMERED https://t.co/SN49nNEnpQ
Loomer said she had also been with State Committeeman Richard De Napoli before arriving on scene.
.@RichardDeNapoli and I have been in contact all night as soon as I got word of the provisional box. I spoke with him while he was inside the @Avis office at Fort Lauderdale Airport tonight.— Laura Loomer (@LauraLoomer) November 12, 2018
I am going to interview him tonight and share the video with all of you shortly. https://t.co/EdjaxT36bz
She then released a video of the encounter De Napoli had with BSO:
EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: @Avis employee at #FortLauderdaleAirport discovered a PROVISIONAL BALLOT BOX in the back of a rental car.@browardsheriff had bomb squad shut down the airport, but they never reported on the ballot box!— Laura Loomer (@LauraLoomer) November 12, 2018
Last driver of car was a Broward employee! #StopTheSteal pic.twitter.com/XkpXp8x6Cx
And followed up with this question:
.@RichardDeNapoli, a Broward GOP State Committeeman arrived on scene before police blocked off the entrance to the airport and was able to get video of @browardsheriff officers responding to @Avis to document ballot box. Why did BSO shut down the airport over a fake bomb scare?— Laura Loomer (@LauraLoomer) November 12, 2018
Are we about to see even more election fraud in Broward County?
