Andrew Gillum and Bill Nelson’s lawyers are now actively fighting to have non-citizen votes count.
AS A REFRESHER – IT IS ILLEGAL FOR NON-CITIZENS TO VOTE. I’m a little confused on when that changed?
The Daily Caller News Foundation put out a transcript of a conversation between Democratic lawyers and the judge of a Palm Beach County Canvassing Board proceeding.
Here are lawyers for Nelson and Gillum directly arguing, Friday night in Palm Beach, that a ballot by a NON-CITIZEN should NOT be excluded.https://t.co/Z9HsIzWYYd @DailyCaller pic.twitter.com/zynSdgTdZ9

RIIIIGHT. They BOTH objected to the vote not being counted. ON WHAT GROUNDS?!
According to Daily Wire:
Michael Barnett, chairman of the Palm Beach Republican Party, said that despite the objections of the two Democratic lawyers, the vote was not allowed after two of the three canvassing board members ruled that a vote by a non-citizen was “an impermissible vote,” according to the DCNF.
“The lawyer who was present was not someone we had authorized to make such an objection,” Democratic lawyer Marc Elias told the DCNF. “Non-citizens cannot vote in U.S. elections.”
YOU DON’T SAY.
But this guy knows a thing or two about stealing elections…
When thousands of DNC emails were leaked in 2016, The Washington Post reported that some of the most damaging emails involved Elias and his role in crafting the DNC’s response to accusations made by the Sanders campaign that the Clinton campaign “was improperly using its joint fundraising committee with the DNC to benefit itself.”
“Elias’ guidance isn’t perhaps all that shocking; he’s Clinton’s lawyer, after all,” The Post reported. “But the fact that he was talking to the DNC about how to respond would appear to suggest coordination between the DNC and Clinton campaign against Sanders in this particular case.”
This is all such a freaking mess.
