Judge: Ballots in Wasserman Schultz Race Illegally Destroyed

Snipes signed a Sept. 1 document to destroy the ballots, without informing Canova or the court. Snipes contends her office made high-quality copies of the ballots.
Paper ballots should have been preserved by the office until 22 months after the election, according to longstanding federal election law and state public records law. Under state law, a public record sought in a court case is not permitted to be destroyed without a judge’s order.
