Democrats have made it clear that, when it comes to gaining power, they can no longer be trusted to do the right thing.

We have to wonder how many close elections, rightly won by a Republican candidate, unscrupulous Democratic election officials have stolen. This is not paranoia. Unfortunately, it’s the new reality. If the last two years have taught us anything, it’s that we can never again give Democrats the benefit of the doubt, especially when the situation involves power.

Florida Governor and Senator-elect Rick Scott appeared on Hannity last night to discuss the current situation in Broward and Palm Beach counties. Overseeing events in Florida for the Democrats is lawyer Mark Elias, who is a partner with the Perkins Coie law firm, where he is in charge of their Political Law practice.

He also served as the general counsel for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. In that capacity, he arranged to funnel money from the DNC and the Clinton campaign through Perkins Coie, to opposition research firm Fusion GPS to pay for the infamous Trump Dossier. He’s made his motives clear.

Elias declared on a conference call Thursday morning that the senator will be victorious and by the end of the month, he’ll be preparing for a fourth term in Washington.

“At the end of this process Sen. Nelson is going to prevail,” Elias said. “I am very measured in how I treat what I say. When I say it is currently a jump ball … I mean that.”

He is not there to straighten out the ballot issues. Rather, he is there to make sure that Sen. Bill Nelson wins at any cost.

Unfortunately, the passage of time makes fraud detection all the more difficult. It’s great that Rick Scott and the NRSC filed lawsuits on Thursday evening against election officials in Broward and Palm Beach counties and won both suits on Friday evening. But time is of the essence when processing ballots and we have to wonder what fraudulent activities officials have been able to cover up in the meantime.

Why do recounts only seem to benefit Democrats? …
