Incompetence and lawlessness in Broward isn't fraud, but it has a cost

Editors, Washington Examiner

Snipes is in the middle of the biggest electoral hubbub since the 2000 presidential recount. Florida, no doubt, would be better off if the supervisor of elections had heeded the advice of the Sun Sentinel editorial board back in June when they deemed her “credibility past the tipping point” and asked for her resignation. It isn’t clear yet whether her incompetence (or perhaps malevolence) will tip the Senate seat or governorship one way or the other. But Snipes is a living lesson of why we need government officials who are competent and who respect the law.
