Gov. Rick Scott delivered an ultimatum Tuesday to the election supervisor in the Florida Keys, who is refusing to limit early voting to eight days for the November election.
Scott said he will “take all necessary and appropriate action to ensure that the laws are faithfully executed,” a statement some elections officials said sounded like he’s considering removing the supervisor, Harry Sawyer Jr. from office.
“He’s trying to intimidate me, no doubt about it,” Sawyer said.
Sawyer, the longtime Monroe County supervisor of elections and a Republican, insists on offering early voting for 12 days and that more people will vote if early voting takes place over a longer period.
Apparently he doesn’t know that the more people vote, the more Republicans lose. And we can’t have that, now can we?
