Posted on 11/11/2012 8:06:05 PM PST by foundedonpurpose
Some may have seen a headline today in the leftist Huffington Post stating Allen West has lost his re-election bid and will not have a recount. That is flatly incorrect.
From Tanya Grimsley, electoral activist in the Allen West campaign, posted today in Facebook:
Because the challenger Murphy jumped the gun as did most of the media without checking the facts and Congressman Allen West no conceding in this race, the ballots the were being counted were from the original race on Tuesday. These ballots put Allen West ahead, but not within the margin needed to declare victory. The ballots in St Lucie will also need to be completed this coming Wed. and from there will determine if either candidate is the winner or a forced mandatory recount of all the votes in the district.
Remember, no winner has been declared by the SoE. This is fact.

good news......Please Col...please fight this....
That’s as clear as mud.
This must be the most recent info...
Since I am a racist for voting for Romney, ... everyone
voting for Patrick Murphy are racist.
From Allen’s website:
There has been a lot of misinformation out there about the state of the race, and not surprisingly the local press is dutifully parroting the talking points coming out of Patrick Murphys campaign proclaiming the race decided, so heres the truth: this race remains far from decided.
Today the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections, after promising to recount all early votes, counted only ballots from the last three days of early voting, netting Allen West over 500 votes. The problem is those arent the first three days of early votingthe days the Supervisor of Elections originally said were compromised by faulty data cards in the machines.
We will continue to fight for a recount of all early votes. In addition, we will ensure that the public is able to view the poll book sign-ins to ensure the number of early votes cast match the numbers of voters who checked-in to vote.
Nothing coming out of Supervisor of Elections Gertrude Walkers office adds up, stories are constantly changing, and the hostile attitude of the Supervisor is disturbing. What originally looked like dangerous incompetence is looking more and more like a willful attempt to steal an election.
We will not allow a Democrat Supervisor of Elections to steal this election. We will pursue every legal means available to ensure a fair an accurate election.
I know you have stood with Allen every step of the way for the past four years and I know you will continue to stand with us as we fight liberal efforts to steal this election. Your efforts in Palm Beach County and St. Lucie County protecting the integrity of the election have been tremendous these past few days.

UPDATE from Florida. This will effect all of you soon. The SOE, Supervisor of Elections, in Saint Lucie County just kicked out all onlookers and was escorted away by the St Lucie Sheriffs deputies (not in handcuffs). The public by the Florida State Constitution has the right to be present at any voting recount. You will think I am crazy, until you open your eyes, this is the start of the Dictatorship will will live under. The Republic has fallen.
