Florida GOP Prepares Lawsuit Against Alleged Voter Fraud in Democratic County

Update: It appears there will be no need for a lawsuit after Broward County officials offered a swift response.

“I am pleased that Broward County has quickly agreed to take corrective actions in response to the concerns raised in our letter," RPOF Chairman Blaise Ingoglia said in a statement. "Florida's voters must have confidence that the election process is fair, open, and transparent.  The Republican Party of Florida will continue to monitor the canvassing process to ensure there are no further violations of the law.”

The GOP is accusing election officials of illegally opening tens of thousands of mail-in ballots in Broward County, Florida before they have been legally canvassed. The county is 2-to-1 Democratic. 

Fox News interviewed Florida GOP Chairman Blaise Ingoglia at a Donald Trump rally on Wednesday, who insisted the election officials were not given permission to open the ballots. He sent a warning letter to the Florida Supervisor of Elections.

If the county does not respond in due time, the GOP of Florida will file a lawsuit against Broward County on Thursday morning.
