WATCH: Senator Rubio tweets video allegedly showing ballots being transported in private cars

BROWARD COUNTY, FLORIDA — With Broward County, Florida at the center of a major election recount, Florida Senator Marco Rubio has shared a video that allegedly shows ballots being transported by private cars on election night.

The video was originally posted by Independent Congressional candidate Tim Canova, who recently lost to Democrat Debbie Wasserman Schultz for Florida's 23rd congressional district.

"Caught On Video: Concerned citizen sees ballots being transported in private vehicles & transferred to rented truck on Election night," Canova tweeted out Thursday. "This violates all chain of custody requirements for paper ballots. Were the ballots destroyed & replaced by set of fake ballots? Investigate now!"

The video got the attention of Rubio who tweeted it from his own account.

“This video, posted by an Independent Cong candidate in 18 (who was endorsed by Bernie Sanders in 16) purports to show Broward County ballots being transported from polling places in private cars. Has anyone in local media looked into this claim or asked elections dept about it?"
