Omarosa finds her way into the news after her vote was thrown out in Florida

Just when you thought the Florida election recount could not get any stranger.

Apparently a provisional ballot that was not counted in Duval County belonged to Omarosa Manigault Newman, President Trump’s former communications director for the Office of Public Liaison.

Newman, who married Jacksonville pastor John Newman, relocated to the Florida city but had reportedly not registered by the October 9 deadline, according to WFTV.

In the review of ballots that was underway Thursday in Duval County, which includes the city of Jacksonville, a member of the canvassing board was overheard mentioning the former reality star’s name.

“Omarosa Newman, registered late” the board member said before then moved onto the next ballot.

The former Trump White House official, who was fired by chief of staff John Kelly last December and then went on a tell-all book tour smearing her former boss, told WFTV that she had, in fact, registered to vote in time.

Newman noted the registration deadline in a tweet in October.

She even tweeted a note about how early voting was a “breeze” in Florida, an ironic comment in light of the chaos over alleged voter fraud in the state.

Tenikka Smith Hughes, anchor and reporter with WJAX-TV and WFOX-TV reported that Newman was working with an attorney to get an affidavit submitted before Thursday’s 5 p.m. deadline as she was currently out of the country.

Newman’s experience seems to only add to the circus that has emerged out of Florida’s elections with multiple GOP candidates being challenged in races with unbelievably close margins, including Gov. Rick Scott and Sen. Bill Nelson’s battle for the US Senate seat as well as Governor-elect Ron DeSantis and Democrat Andrew Gillum.

As recounts and provisional ballots are tallied and reviewed with elections supervisors in Palm Beach and Broward counties facing lawsuits and court orders, a meme mocking the Florida chaos summed things up quite well.

Twitter users weighed in on the latest with the Omarosa Manigault Newman episode.
