Twitchy has already covered both of these senators today: Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida is wondering what’s taking Broward County so long to count ballots after the polls have closed, and Sen. Chris Murphy of Connecticut is rallying the troops of the Resistance to “adjust your schedules because we may all have to get down to Florida” to ensure every ballot is counted — even the ones currently being printed and discovered in car trunks.
If “Ghostbusters” taught us anything, it’s to never cross the streams, but Murphy decided to pick up on Rubio’s thread and wonder just what he’s suggesting with posts like this one:
#Florida law requires counties report early voting & vote-by-mail within 30 minutes after polls close. 43 hours after polls closed 2 Democrat strongholds #BrowardCounty & #PalmBeachCounty are still counting & refusing to disclose how many ballots they have left to count. #Sayfie pic.twitter.com/ReXCaOzkZP

What are trying to say, senator?
What is the point of this thread?
That the votes shouldn’t be counted?
Or that the votes shouldn’t be counted if counting them results in a Democrat winning?
Or that the votes shouldn’t be counted if the local election officials are Democrats that Republicans don’t like? https://t.co/bbNklmC4oH

The point is the votes should have been counted and reported by now. By law. That’s the point.
Democrats freaking out at suggestion electoral rules be followed. https://t.co/FTXiWeVNoq

The point, unlike the one on your head is this, the on-going corruption and incompetence of the Democrat voting supervisor that controls the voting results in Broward County Florida.
Then again, it’s pretty obvious to most that that’s the way Dems roll

The point is that #BrowardCounty is completely incompetent. They have a history of electoral mistakes. Brenda Snipes has broken election law in the past by destroying ballots. #RECOUNTFLORIDA #FloridaRecount https://t.co/8Cu33KWNNs

The point is that people that lost their homes were able to complete their jobs ON TIME! You really have lost it Chris. I thought you fought for hurricane victims? https://t.co/ywwNKPjG3C

Maybe the senator FROM FLORIDA should be allowed to comment on activities happening IN FLORIDA without comment from the senator from Connecticut?
I hope Rubio feels free to comment on anything you tweet about CT.
