(Newser) – Florida's making it a little too easy now for the voting jokes: WSVN reports that Broward County officials have turned up a box with nearly 1,000 uncounted paper ballots in a warehouse. But it's this line in particular that stands out in the report: "The supervisor of elections, Dr. Brenda Snipes, said this happens all the time ..." Upon hearing another elections official explain that the ballots turned up after a search of "every nook and cranny, high and low," a local mayor wasn't so blasé. They "had to search high and low to find ballots?" Parkland Mayor Michael Udine asks the Sun-Sentinel. "Something about this seems to erode all the confidence. It's disgraceful."

Florida has been screwed up since the texas shrub was at the helm down there. And to think the sorry republicans want Jeb to run for president. Elli May would probably vote for him.
