Skip to comments.Allen West for Congress – Actions of St. Lucie County SOE Result in More Questions than Answers
Posted on 11/11/2012 1:40:41 PM PST by Uncle Chip
Stuart, FL Today West for Congress released the following statement in response to todays 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 Boards 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 Supervisors 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 Thursdays 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 todays 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 Boards 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 todays events, their conduct and inconsistent behavior cast even more doubt on the St. Lucie Countys 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.
this happened all over but alan is the only one pitching a fit over it.
Meanwhile, where is REPUBLI-TARD Gov Scott or Atty Gen Pam Bondi?
Crickets chirping from the leadership of the wuss, stoopid party.
Every voter in Florida may be disenfranchised. The election ought to be voided and the electoral votes forfeited.
Corrupt election officials are to blame.
The Repubs want it to go away as quickly as possible.
I think everyone pretty much agrees it was a sham..but it went on all over the usa and others didnt say a word.
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.

If the GOP is successful in this back stab I nominate West as our first candidate for President from the New Tea Party. Go West (young man. LOL)
Every voter in the country was disenfranchised.
Where the hell are the REPUBLICAN elected officials in Florida and in Congress?
The BIG question is why are they silent. My God, is everyone in on this sham but me and a few FReepers?
This baloney is bigger than even I thought. I am mad. What the heck do we do now?
Yes.. Every voter in the USA was disenfranchised.
This cannot be said enough.
Actually this should be done in all counties where a Democrat holds the position of elections supervisor.
No matter what happens here West will be backed to the hilt.
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!
it went on all over the usa and others didnt say a word.
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
