Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes Submits Resignation

Legal Insurrection

Controversial Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes has submitted her resignation just hours after a hand recount confirmed that Rick Scott won the Senate election.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel was the first to report the resignation:

Just hours after finishing a tumultuous election recount on Sunday, Broward Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes submitted her resignation.

“It is true. She did send it,” said Burnadette Norris-Weeks, an attorney who works as counsel to the Supervisor of Elections Office.

Evelyn Perez-Verdia, a former office spokeswoman who left several years ago, said Sunday evening she was told by people in the office that the letter was sent “to Tallahassee” earlier in the day.

Norris-Weeks said she saw an early draft of the letter. In the version she saw, she said Snipes, 75, expressed a desire to spend more time with her family.

The exact effective date of the resignation was unclear Sunday evening.

Norris-Weeks said she believes it was effective Jan. 2. Perez-Verdia said she was told the effective date was Jan. 5.

NBC6 Miami has confirmed the report:

Brenda Snipes has submitted her resignation as the Broward County supervisor of elections.

A representative of Snipes confirmed the news to NBC 6 on Sunday.

    Based on her record, Brenda Snipes served in that position 15 years too long. How could that happen?

    What really scares me now is that the staff trained by her is still there.
