Allen West for Congress Actions of St. Lucie County SOE Result in More Questions than Answers

Stuart, FL – Today West for Congress released the following statement in response to today’s questionable conduct by St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections Gertrude Walker and the St. Lucie County Canvassing Board:

“We are after the truth of what votes were cast by voters in St. Lucie County, and the conduct of the canvassing board today casts doubt on their reported numbers.

The St. Lucie Canvassing Board’s abrupt action today was reached entirely without explanation or justification. The Campaign was informed on Saturday afternoon, while the Board met in an apparently private and unannounced session, that a decision was reached to recount all ballots cast during early voting.

There was absolutely no explanation of what events or evidence before the Board triggered this voluntary recount. The Supervisor’s website still includes its last-minute public notice of a full recount of early votes:

That is not what happened today. Again without any warning or notice, the Board announced this morning that it would count only the early votes cast on Nov. 1, 2, and 3. The explanation given at this point was that the four data cards in use on those three days of early voting did not upload properly on Election Night.

However, the Supervisor and the Board said on Election Night and at Thursday’s canvassing board meeting that the four “compromised” data cards were actually taken from vote counting machines in use during the first three days of early voting. By the close of today’s meeting, the Board again changed its position to explain that the decision to recount only early vote ballots cast on Nov. 1, 2, and 3 was at the direction of “Tallahassee.”

Adding to this confusion is the Supervisor and Canvassing Board’s continued refusal to produce any means of verifying their count. The records of poll book data for early voting requested of the Supervisor and the Board would allow anyone to match the number of votes and number of voters.

The candidates and the public have no way of knowing that the number of persons who voted in this election is equal to the number of ballots counted. The critical information contained in early voting poll book records is as necessary to certification of results as it is simple to produce. The Supervisor and the Board continue their attempts to hide the facts and after today’s events, their conduct and inconsistent behavior cast even more doubt on the St. Lucie County’s election returns.”

The absolute first basic point of confirmation...does the number of votes counted EQUAL the number of voters signing the poll registry?
This same bit of information should be the starting point for ALL precincts being challenged; Florida, Colorado, Ohio, Pennsylvania, ALL of them, ANYWHERE.

If the votes counted exceed the number of voters signing to vote, there is a problem. Simple test...

The appearance of a recount without an actual recount.

I would think at this point, there are enough inconsistencies and obvious shenanigans going on that West should go back to that (no doubt, lib RAT) Judge who denied his motion in the 1st place and if she continues to deny, then he should immediately appeal to the next highest level.

Meanwhile, where is REPUBLI-TARD Gov Scott or Atty Gen Pam Bondi?

Crickets chirping from the leadership of the wuss, stoopid party.

The election in Florida has been corrupted. It's not just West. The Secretary of State allowed some counties to vote while other counties were prohibited from voting. This went on for two days. It's rotten from the top down.

Every voter in Florida may be disenfranchised. The election ought to be voided and the electoral votes forfeited.

Corrupt election officials are to blame.

There is a paper trail for all votes in Florida.

If people want to fight election fraud then now is the time and St Lucie is the place and Colonel West is the man.

A line should be drawn in the sand. A full accounting of all votes in the county should now be demanded — not just the early ones.

If there was 799 discrepancies in 16,000 votes that they cherry picked, then how many might there be in the full 120,000.

ST. LUCIE COUNTY SUPERVISOR OF ELECTIONS ATTEMPTS TO STEAL ELECTION 

 

Supervisor of Elections Gertrude Walker clearly runs most corrupt
elections office in the state of Florida
 

Stuart, FL - Today West for Congress campaign manager Tim Edson released the following statement in response to the sham recount underway in St. Lucie County this morning:

 

"Late yesterday, the St. Lucie County Board of Elections had agreed to recount all early ballots to address concerns stemming from their acknowledgement of technical errors late on Election Night in the counting of the first three days of early voting, as posted on their website.

 

However this morning, when observers arrived at the elections office for the 7:00 a.m. recount, they were told by the Supervisor of Elections only the final three days of early voting would be recounted, when in fact the data in question relates to the first three days of voting. During discussions about the recount, the canvassing board repeatedly tried to shoo away observers and prevent them from listening in on discussions. Apparently the have never heard of Florida sunshine laws

 

When questioned about counting the wrong three days of voting, the Supervisor of Elections and the canvassing board claimed the errors were in fact on the final three days, despite the record from Thursday's canvassing board meeting showing otherwise. In addition, the Supervisor has said transcripts from the earlier canvassing board meeting will not be released until the day before the votes are certified.

 

What was originally viewed as dangerous incompetence on the part of Gertrude Walker now appears more and more like a willful attempt to steal the election for Patrick Murphy. Nothing about this story adds up. If there is truly nothing wrong with the data from the first three days of voting, why will it not be released?

 

West for Congress will pursue every legal means necessary to ensure a fair election, not only to ensure Gertrude Walker is held accountable, but also ultimately replaced, so the citizens of St Lucie County will be ensured fair and accurate elections."

At that point all votes from that precinct should be thrown out. I would start with St. Lucie, Broward, Dade, and Palm Beach Counties, and then go on to Hillsborough.

Actually this should be done in all counties where a Democrat holds the position of elections supervisor.

Will the House Leadership throw out the elections results and order a new election? Many millions already spent.

Allen West is the only political patriot left. I can’t believe all of us held our nose and donated, made calls etc...for some RINO, only to see him concede and fade away. West fights!

Sure makes you wonder.
Thought Romney and the RNC had a load of lawyers ready to jump on any stinky situations. Guess not, as everyone except West just said “OK we concede” 15 minutes after the polls closed
