They’re Trying To Stop The Count — Again!… #FloridaRecount #FloridaRecount2018 #Florida
My very first US investigative report was published by Salon in 2000 about the theft of the vote in #Florida. Fast-forward to 2018 and the photos are nearly identical — GOP bullies trying to stop the vote count.…
This week in #Florida, my camera crew captured menacing crowds supporting the GOP chanting ‘Stop the count’—the exact phrase the GOP chanted in 2000. And in 2018, Democratic demonstrators are chanting ‘Count all the votes'—the exact same (failed) chant from 2000. #FloridaRecount
In 2000, Democrats were calling for all votes to be counted. The Republicans were adamant, led by Jeb Bush and Katherine Harris: don’t count all votes. In the end a whopping 178,000 ballots were disqualified—and George W. Bush won #Florida and the presidency by just 537 votes.
Eighteen years later and it’s still the same. I never could have imagined that my crews in Florida would be filming the same chants, same trickery, as in 2000.… #FloridaRecount #FloridaRecount2018 #Florida
