A group of white women at an “election theft demonstration” targeting Florida’s controversial vote count were recorded harassing black people in the crowd in two videos filmed multiple hours apart.
The video recorded and posted by Twitter user @ARAEveryDay at the Broward County Supervisor of Elections office in Lauderhill, Florida describes the women as “haranguing” them as they held an Andrew Gillum shirt at the rally.
“It’s all about ‘let’s vote black,'” said one of the women who was wearing a badge or sticker emblazoned with the name of gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis. She was filmed holding a sign calling Broward SOE Brenda Snipes, the target of a voter fraud lawsuit brought by governor and Senate candidate Rick Scott, “corrupt.”
“Identity politics here,” a woman clad in a Tea Party snake t-shirt responded.
“Why do you support Gillum?” a younger white woman said as she walked up to the two older women. One of the women insistently replied that the person recording the video supported Gillum “because he’s black.”
At one point, an older white man walked into frame and repeatedly yelled “how much is George Soros paying you?” at the person recording.
These women are haranguing the only black person here, standing on a bench holding a Gillum shirt.

A video posted two hours later shows the same women making fun of a group of black counter-protesters and imitating them dancing.

The women appeared to be at the Broward County SOE office for a protest advertised on pro-Trump Facebook groups.
As the Miami New Times reported, fringe right-winger figures like Laura Loomer and Orlando-based InfoWars contributor Jacob Engels promoted the “election theft demonstration” at the Broward SOE office.
