Brenda Snipes: Boxes Found in Rental Car at Ft. Lauderdale Airport Contained Blank Ballots
Boxes marked "provisional ballots" that were discovered in the back of an Avis rental car at the Fort Lauderdale Airport Sunday night contained blank ballots and other materials such as signs and parking cones, Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes told reporters Monday afternoon.
The question of why blank ballots were floating around Broward County was left unanswered.
The airport was shut down temporarily Sunday evening so the "suspicious boxes" could be investigated.
According to Richard DeNapoli, the Broward County GOP state committeeman, the Broward Sheriff's Office at first "seemed uninterested in coming to pick up these ballot boxes."
DeNapoli had rushed to the airport Sunday night after an Avis employee gave him a heads up about the boxes.
Independent journalist Laura Loomer suggested that the bomb scare was meant to divert attention away from the fact that a Democrat elections employee had left ballot boxes in a rental car at the airport.
