Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s campaign manager Jackie Schutz Zeckman threw down the gauntlet and is calling for Terrie Rizzo – Democratic Party chairwoman for the state – to resign. Zeckman made her case accusing Rizzo of conducting “including efforts to extend the due date for corrected mail-in ballots.” This could be seen as setting up the state’s election process for failure or at least a recount like the one happening right now. Failure has its consequences.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s campaign manager is calling on the state’s Democratic Party chairwoman to resign, accusing her of conducting “an illegal scheme to alter election forms” in the still-undecided Senate race.
Jackie Schutz Zeckman, Scott’s campaign manager, said Terrie Rizzo was behind an attempt to extend the legally established due date sent to voters who were asked to correct problems with their mail-in ballots.
“News reports yesterday and today revealed that the Florida Democrat Party engaged in an illegal scheme to alter election forms and deceive voters regarding the deadlines for submitting votes,” Zeckman said in a statement.
Florida officials have sought the help of federal prosecutors to examine the matter, in which Democratic party officials appear to have changed the date from Nov. 6 until Nov. 8 for voters to fix mail-in ballot problems in four counties, including Broward County, a heavily populated Democratic stronghold.
