Scott suspended Snipes Friday, citing mistakes her office made in the November elections.

Illegal Ballots Were Mixed into Broward County, Fla. Election Results

(Brittany Wallman, Sun Sentinel) Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes announced Saturday that she will fight her suspension by Florida Gov. Rick Scott and rescinded her letter of resignation that preceded it.

Scott suspended Snipes Friday, citing mistakes her office made in the November elections.

The elections office attorney, Burnadette Norris Weeks, said the governor is holding her to a different standard than other elections offices in Florida, “as if there can never be a mistake made.”

In a room filled with black pastors, elected officials, community leaders and her fellow “Deltas” sorority sisters in their trademark red clothing, Snipes thanked her supporters.

The suspension could cause Snipes to lose her pension from 15 years in the office, the announcement for the news conference suggested. But Norris Weeks said Snipes was unable to get answers to her questions about the pension Friday.

She said Broward voters “should be very concerned about our democracy,” after a Republican governor removed a Democratic elections supervisor in a heavily Democratic county.
