Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes has come under fire for the numerous incidents of voter fraud and the lengthy recount process earlier this month. She finally decided to resign from her post after facing severe criticism. Now, it's coming to light that she will be receiving $11,000 a month in a pension. That equates to roughly $130,000 a year. Snipes was previously making $178,865 a year as Broward's Election Supervisor, the Sun-Sentinel reported.
Part of the reason her pension is so high is because of her time in government. She already receives $4,880 a month for her combined time as a teacher and school administrator. Snipes has received that part of her pension, in combination with her salary as Elections Supervisor, since she was appointed to the post by Gov. Jeb Bush in 2003. She won re-election to the post four different times since her appointment.
