Canova sues for access to ballots from 2016 primary loss to Wasserman Schultz

Tim Canova, who has suggested he might not really have lost his 2016 primary challenge to U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, is suing the Broward Supervisor of Elections Office to gain access to the ballots from the election.

Canova is challenging Wasserman Schultz again in the 2018 primary. In June, when he announced his plan for a rematch, he said election integrity would be a top priority, and vowed to seek a recount of the results regardless of the outcome.

In the lawsuit filed June 6 in Broward County Circuit Court, Canova said Lulu Friesdat, a person acting on his behalf, has been unsuccessful in getting access to the 2016 primary ballots under the state’s public records law. He wants Circuit Judge Raag Singhal to order the Supervisor of Elections Office to provide the records, which he said Snipes has refused to produce for “copying and/or scanning.”

Burnadette Norris-Weeks, counsel for Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes, asked Singhal to dismiss the case. On July 5, Norris-Weeks wrote in her argument for dismissal that the Canova team can’t show its side has actually made an attempt to get the records he requested. Also, she said, Canova’s side never asked for photocopies, but instead wanted to bring in scanning equipment.

Tim Canova Deletes Tweet Implying Debbie Wasserman Schultz Fried His Surge Protector



Saturday, Canova tweeted that some sort of computer hack and/or electrical surge had fried both his computer and surge protector Thursday night — and implied Wasserman Schultz or the DNC might have been linked to the alleged attack.

"Announced last night 8 p.m. run vs. @DWSTweets again," he wrote. "At 2 a.m. my computer was attacked & surge protector fried. Same happened last campaign."

Via email, Canova said he heard a "high-pitched sound coming from the surge protector" around 2 a.m. Thursday. He said that he could not see a storm outside his home but that if it was an "intentional attack," it could have "been anyone" who dislikes him, not necessarily Wasserman Schultz. But his tweet clearly said the surge came hours after he declared his candidacy. (A spokesperson for Wasserman Schultz did not immediately respond to an email requesting comment.)

After Canova announced the alleged "hack," more than a few electricians and engineers online pointed out that what Canova is describing is basically impossible. It's almost physically impossible for someone to send voltage toward a surge protector from a computer and therefore "fry" it: Surge protectors stop voltage from traveling one way, from a power source to a computer, not vice versa.
