Snipes Has Snapped - Rescinds Resignation, Vows to Fight Suspension By Governor Scott
Brenda Snipes has rescinded her resignation and vowed to fight her suspension.
On Friday, Governor and Senator-elect Rick Scott suspended Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes and replaced her with Peter Antonacci.
Snipes pension is an annual salary of $71,000 from her time serving as elections supervisor and she also has a separate pension from her teaching career. Why would she jeopardize that? This appears to be a calculated move.
Rick Scott issued an order to immediately remove Brenda Snipes from office “for misfeasance, incompetence, and neglect of duty.”
“Brenda Snipes’ attorney on Saturday said the recently suspended Broward County elections supervisor would rescind her resignation.
“We believe these actions are malicious, we believe that the allegations that are set forth in the governor’s executive order are done for the purposes of embarrassing Dr. Snipes – embarrassing her and tarnishing her record, and we will be fighting this. In addition to that, Dr. Snipes herby rescinds her resignation that was set forth which would have been effective on the fourth of January,” Snipes’ attorney Burnadette Norris-Weeks said in a press conference.”
