Today’s quote comes to us from Andrea Mitchell, who, years ago, I used to take seriously as a political analyst.
Here is the “news” Ms. Michell passed along to MSNBC viewers yesterday, regarding Broward County, Florida’s Board Of Elections Supervisor, Brenda Snipes:
“We should also point out that Brenda Snipes in Broward County is a Republican appointed by former governor, then-Governor Jeb Bush. 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.”
Now that’s fascinating. Who would ever have guessed Ms. Snipes was a Republican. Hey, maybe she was boosting Rick Scott’s vote total, not Bill Nelson’s.
…Andrea Mitchell does not know what she’s talking about.
Regardless of how Brenda Snipes came to be Broward’s Supervisor of Elections 18 years ago, she is not a Republican. She is a Democrat. All four times she has run for re-election to this post it has been as a Democrat.
I award Andrea Mitchell Quote Of The Day “honors” for going beyond her usual partisan commentaries and flat-out misinforming her viewers.
I doubt if she’ll lose a minute’s sleep over it.
