(Big League Politics) – The Broward County teacher who allegedly found a container labelled “Provisional Ballots” after Election Day did not choose to tell the cops or federal law enforcement right away. Rather, she called up Andrew Gillum’s friend in the Florida state legislature.

The Hill hilariously observes the teacher situation:
“Teacher Lakeisha Sorey told The Sun-Sentinel she came across the box on Thursday afternoon and said it was located in the same area at Sunshine Elementary School where voting had been held earlier this week.
Sorey said she was concerned the box, which was labeled “provisional ballots,” might have contained uncounted ballots and decided not to meddle with it.
“I didn’t want to touch it,” Sorey told the local paper.
Sorey said she also reportedly contacted her friend, state Rep. Shevrin Jones (D), who the newspaper noted was a close confidant of Tallahassee Mayor and Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum (D), seeking help about the discovery.
Jones told the newspaper he contacted the Broward County Supervisor of Elections Office after learning of the box and said he was told it was likely full of blank ballots.
