A “suspicious package” discovered at the Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport Sunday evening, which temporarily shut down the airport, reportedly turn out to be nothing more than boxes marked “provisional ballots” and other election equipment which was left in an Avis rental by a Broward County employee.

Sunday evening, the Broward Sheriff’s Department tweeted, “Our deputies and bomb squad are responding to a report of a suspicious package outside @FLLFlyer Terminal 4.”

Later, they tweeted an all-clear, writing, “Our deputies have deemed the package safe, and issued an all-clear.”

Attorney Richard DeNapoli reportedly received a heads-up from an AVIS employee and rushed to the airport to investigate, along with investigative reporter Laura Loomer, filming the ballot box and other storage containers through a window, before the Sheriff’s department arrived.

NBC6 reporter Tony Pipitone later tweeted that Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes told reporters Monday afternoon that it was only blank, unused ballots left in the box. He wrote, “The material left in a rental car and reported to Broward sheriff at airport last night DID NOT contain completed ballots, Broward supervisor of election confirmed. Just equipment, signs, blank ballots, parking cones, she said citing sheriff’s office inventory.”

Additional details are included in the tweets and videos below:

The whole incident caused a MESS at the airport, as evidenced by the tweets below:

    Not for one minute do I believe all of this reported incident! “No marked ballots” is not the main issue here. I want to know what each of these items are doing in a rental car and why aren’t we questioning the driver whose wife is a Gillum advocate. Also, don’t trust Snipes or Sheriff Isarel’s explanation! This is crazy!

    I’m still not entirely convinced it contained blank ballots. I mean seriously-are we just supposed to believe Snipes? What if the cops were Democrats and sent specifically to call a bomb threat? Can ya tell I’ve become just a LITTLE cynical and not so terribly trusting?

    Let’s have a do-over in ALL the states. In person. With ID. Under military guard. My suggestion: if your state has a DemonRat as an elections supervisor, replace them ASAP. Fraud and election tampering is the ONLY way they could have possibly won anything.
