A temporary worker for the Broward County Supervisor of Elections Office in Florida has alleged in a sworn affidavit obtained by Newsmax that she was fired this week after witnessing possible absentee ballot fraud by office workers.
But the State Attorney’s Office concluded Friday that the workers were duplicating ballots by hand from damaged originals faxed by military personnel and that “there is nothing improper or illegal about the conduct” under state law.
“We were understandably alarmed about what she witnessed,” Bob Nichols, a Fort Lauderdale attorney, told Newsmax in an interview.
Nichols is general counsel for the Broward Republican Executive Committee, which learned of the allegations on Thursday. He interviewed the former employee and reported the matter that day to the state attorney.
According to the affidavit, the former employee alleged that on Monday about 8:30 p.m. she had been told to take a stack of absentee ballot forms to what is known as the Pitney-Bowes Room at the Supervisor of Elections (SOE) office in Lauderhill, Fla. READ MORE:
