Murphy wins; West supporters skeptical
Palm Beach Post ^ | Saturday, Nov. 10, 2012 | Palm Beach Post Staff Writer

Posted on 11/10/2012 1:20:19 PM PST by LeoWindhorse

At 4:45 a.m. today, after 21-hours of non-stop ballot copying and counting, Democratic candidate Patrick Murphy defeated Republican U.S. Rep. Allen West for the District 18 congressional seat.

The final tally — still considered unofficial — put Murphy ahead of West by 2,429 votes. Overall, Murphy captured 166,799 votes to West’s 164,370 in District 18, which spans portions of Martin, St. Lucie and Palm Beach counties. An automatic recount is triggered by a margin of 0.5 percent. Murphy’s lead gives him a .7 percent advantage. All ballots in Martin and St. Lucie counties have been counted.

I really took a look at this map, too..
The states that have NO red counties at all are MA, VT, HI, and RI...
(Remember that when you use your almighty purchasing power...no vaycays THERE)
Every state has, acreage-wise, more red than blue...
If the red counties voted to secede, we would get most of the country land-wise with all it’s resources, etc.
Those in the more populated areas would be screwed if anything catastrophic happened...as we can see from Sandy...
Hmmmmmmmmmmmm...something to think about, if only as an intellectual exercise.

I agree with your assessment that they hacked ORCA and that they planned this all along that is why they were not worried about Romney’s turnout. they would produce enough votes to win target states!!!

‘m with you. Makes me sick that the Dems had election lawyers in every state ready to go if they didn’t cheat enough the first time yet we can’t even challenge the vote if they win. God help us if someone in this country doesn’t have enough guts to start fighting back. We know it won’t be the GOP but I still have faith in the people.

I don’t have a problem with this calling them out as cheats and liars... However the spineless Republicans don’t like to call them liars because he is black... I don’t give a rats behind what color they are a liar is a liar and a cheat is a cheat!!!! We have a crook in the White House!!!

Until 25yrs ago, I worked in some of the blue areas; never again. That’s a whole different country.

Exactly. They weren't worried about anything, prior tot the election. The optics of 0 taking off to Vegas after Benghazi AND Sandy proved that. They knew they had the polls, turn out and votes *sewed up*.

“Martin and St. Lucie counties have been counted.”

How many times?

Like we didn't know this was going to happen!

Has a Republican candidate won one recount?

hyping it look like fools, and thus discredit legit reports of fraud

This is why we need to have proof of everything we see. I would contend that whenever you go to the polls whether you are a poll watcher or as a voter you should bring a small video camera (preferably one that adds a date and time stamp) to record any shenanigans you may see.

I would add that you should have the type of camera that will automatically send what you record to a remote location. That way if the powers that be confiscate it you will still have a record.

Also keep in mind that many police unions are part of SEIU so your evidence may be "inadvertently" erased so make several copies before you turn them over

The Democrat Party has finally learned how to steal elections and get just enough of a majority that it won’t trigger an automatic recount. From this point on anyone that causes them trouble will just be frauded out in the next election. The only Republicans left will be the go along, get along crowd.

You are correct in that we should not stand for ANY voter irregularities and push to validate the results. Never give up. However Obama won by a large margin and probably would prevail even without the irregularities. Lots of stupid and ignorant voters that want Obama phones and crap.

So it’s a four prong problem.
fraud + stupid/ignorant + MSM propaganda + candidate.
we need to work on all four fronts

Thank you for posting this. I have been trying to warn so many not to fall for the ‘140%, 150% turnout! OMG! disinfo’.

This misreading of basic ballot counting procedures shows the truly sloppy nature of research that really hurts the credibilty of so many knee-jerk internet pundits.

I also think that there was massive vote fraud across the nation, but it certainly was not this clearly obvious type (ie ‘thousands more voted that even live in a district!’) that is the product of anger and frustration combined with a yearning for easily-found evidence from an ‘official gubmint’ source.

These bogus stories are truly killing the credibilty of those reporting true fraud, and it is a psy-op, designed to do exactly this.

The Republican State Legislature, after the 2010 census, set about re-districting the state. They drew West’s district into a Dem stronghold.....IMO,he was punished because he did not toe the line with the GOP, and he spoke out when he was told not to.

Col. West had the option of staying in the old district or moving into the new one. He chose the new one.

He led by 9 points the weekend before the election. Suspicious to me....

And the sad thing is they keep spamming threads with these lies when the truth would better help them. I agree with you that there is no doubt fraud out in the voting arena but as you say nothing so blatant and obvious.

Here is the guy who needs to spearhead the investigation to the 2012 Vote Fraud. Have Issa appoint West as the head of a select civilian committee.

Sloppy is the St. Lucie Elections Head who’s office created the first two pages of the report. When question by NBC affiliate on the 7th, She, the Elections Director answered that ‘she had no idea’.

Paid Bureaucrat that has no idea the why and how of her own Elections report, needs to be GONE.

Her response to the NBC affiliate’s question of the Nov. 7th report, has generated the questions.

BTW, the rest of Florida (counties) that I randomly checked, apparently had software or directors that were smart enough to recognize voters and pages.

Yep their methods of reporting or detailing the data was poor for those of us who aren’t used to that type system. Once someone explained it to me I recognized what the procedure was and no fraud was occurring. Now I’m not saying fraud didn’t occur somewhere else but I think the count is legit.
