Tampa mayor: Pinellas election supervisor should be fired



Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn didn't hold back Tuesday after learning about an elections blunder across Tampa Bay in Pinellas County. In Pinellas, more than 12,500 voters were wrongly telephoned the morning of the election with a message that they had until 7 p.m. "tomorrow" to turn in their absentee ballots.

Early Tuesday afternoon, Buckhorn tweeted: This Supervisor of Elections should be fired at the next election.
