Lawyers for Democratic Candidates Fight to Include Non-U.S. Citizens’ Votes in Florida

Lawyers for both Florida Democratic candidates Andrew Gillum and Bill Nelson fought on Friday night to allow non- citizens’ votes to be included in the 2018 midterm election results.

Breitbart reports a transcript of a Palm Beach County Canvassing Board proceeding shows that the candidates’ lawyers objected to votes being rejected after it was discovered that the votes were cast by non-citizens.

Both Gillum and Nelson were reported to have conceded to their opponents after Tuesday’s election.

But, despite conceding, both Democrats are now, as President Trump put it “back in play” as recounts continue.

One of Nelson’s lawyers, Marc Elias, is also a Clinton campaign lawyer who worked for the DNC and has ties to the infamous Steele “dossier.”
