Rick Scott addresses his election night party in Naples, Florida, where he had declared victory Tuesday over incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.). Rick Scott suggested there was “rampant fraud” and called for law enforcement to investigate two counties over their election practices as the Republican’s lead in the state’s U.S. Senate race continued to shrink Thursday evening. He called out the supervisors of elections, Democrats Brenda Snipes and Susan Bucher, by name, on the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate the way the counties were counting ballots. “Every Floridian should be concerned there may be rampant fraud happening in Palm Beach and Broward counties,” he said in a televised statement outside the governor’s mansion in Tallahassee. Their goal is to mysteriously keep finding more votes until the election turns out the way they want.”“Tonight, I am asking the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate this immediately,” he added later.
