Yes. Yes it is. More from Caleb Howe at Mediaite:
“We should also point out that Brenda Snipes in Broward County is a Republican appointed by former governor, then-Governor Jeb Bush,” said Mitchell. “So, she was put in by a Republican governor after the mess that we all remember from 2000. And she’s hardly a Democratic official, or someone doing the bidding of the democratic candidates there.”
It is easily fact-checked. In addition to hundreds of media reports, Snipes self-identifies as a Democrat, and in her elected position, she runs as a Democrat. She won her last Democratic primary in 2016.
Listen for yourself:
MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell: "We should also point out that Brenda Snipes in Broward County is a Republican appointed by former governor, then-Governor Jeb Bush…And she’s hardly a Democratic official, or someone doing the bidding of the Democratic candidates there."

Andrea Mitchell, as part of huge effort on cable to prove all in Broward is super pro and therefore Trump is wrong some more, snottily says Brenda Snipes "is a Republican", "hardly a Democratic official". You know, so no way there's bias dummies. EXCEPT… https://t.co/bSGvgzV2RD

Bias and stupidity are a dangerous mix.
You'd have to literally be an idiot to believe this. https://t.co/tuh8yEaqRT
