On the day he suspended Palm Beach Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher, Governor Ron DeSantis rescinded former Governor Rick Scott’s suspension of Brenda Snipes. Instead, Governor DeSantis accepted Snipes’ resignation as Broward Supervisor of Elections.
The Executive Order claims the court battle initiated by Snipes would cost too much money and time to defend.
Where is Brenda Snipes’ lawyer? Burnadette Norris Weeks is the longtime “contract attorney” for the Broward Supervisor of Elections Office (SOE). But Norris Weeks has not been seen in public during the Broward vote counting mess™️.
Instead, local attorney Eugene Pettis has been Snipes’ public face. On Friday, he represented Snipes in a Broward County courtroom. On Saturday, Pettis held a press conference instead of Snipes.
As REDBROWARD reported multiple times, Norris Weeks has deep political ties to Congressman Alcee Hastings and Broward County Commission Dale Holness. Norris Weeks’ Right Consulting was an early contributor to Mayor Andrew Gillum’s campaign. She celebrated Gillum’s surprise win in August. In October she said she was “praying for change.”
On Facebook, Norris Weeks announced she went to “war” over gathering votes for the November election. She touted her role in the 2012 Souls To The Polls. She even praised Dale Holness for his hard work for Gillum.
