Skip to comments.The Col. West Recount: Any updates?
Posted on 11/11/2012 8:21:18 AM PST by TigerClaws
The recount started at 7 am this morning.
Any word how it's going? Was only for one county.
the question we must all ask is where is the GOP to stand with Col. West?
Best updates are on the Allen West Republic Facebook page:
I just checked the county site. Nada. I did laugh though when I saw in their 70% County turnout rate, the number of BLANK votes for the Elections Chief was 5%. lol One would think at least on the Main FED, STATE, and County Elections, voters would care.
Did the 5% that didn’t vote on that race at all just: focus on Barry? not care whom counts their votes? not even know what the Elections department was? status quo?
“the question we must all ask is where is the GOP to stand with Col. West”
-—They are to busy selling us down the drain to care about West — obviously.
smoothsailing, do you have a ping list for Col West’s recount? I would imagine by the time they do the swearing in, argue over who is qualified to represent whom, etc., then actually start counting, it’ll be well into the day before we hear anything.
It’s not likely we’d hear anything until they are finished with the early votes which I understand is all that is being recounted at this point. When I was one of the GOP agents authorized to observe the count at day’s end, anyone in the room was locked in there until the count was done, certified, called into the county and/or state electoral board, and ready to post publicly. No one who wasn’t authorized could either enter or leave during that period. But that was then and this is now, and we are a wholly new Third World country!
Uh oh, according to the FB link provided by docbulldog,
Ms. Walker, unlike what she posted on the County site, has decided to only count “certain days of early votes”. Can we say cherry pick?
How can she say they are going to count all early votes, then screw off days other than Nov. 1-3?
She’s White House or DOJ material!/s
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 Thursdays 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.
so far from what i’m scanning off the FB link: plugs have been mysteriously pulled from machines while counting, and now memory cards have failed, plus, Ms. Walker changed her own rules and is leaving out most of early ballots. only counting november 1-3.
leaving the card/ballot numbers aside, if this doesn’t SHOUT INCOMPETENCE OR FRAUD, i don’t know what does?
Boots on the Ground Allen west Update: Gary Angelo Galiano Some more news would you believe that one of the memory cards failed again after the recount now they have to do it again for that one precinct. This is the reason why we are here. !!!!!!!! the memory cards have failed again can’t they just go to Office Depot and buy bigger ones!?!?!?!?!
Actually, Gore v. Bush does not apply. SCOTUS ruled it ap[plied in that case only and is not to be considered precedent or guidance in any other case.
having said that, I too am very interested in updates. Hate to see West lose this one.
Amen to that TracySC
Electronic voting machines MUST be banned. This is absurd. Paper, paper and more paper.
Wherever you are getting the info...Keep it up and inform us!
(re; Col West)
I had read this...I am so afraid of missing something that double information sources is good this time...
Be sure to post anything you see!!!
Need to post this to FR:
And what is the bald wonder, Gov. Scott, going to do about this rampant corruption in his state? In Texas, Attorney General Greg Abbott’s office would be supervising this recount so that the blatant theft of Col. West’s office would be contested.
Electronic voting machines MUST be banned.
Early voting was the issue. She decided to try to skip that.
Isn’t the entire county being reviewed?
Arent there signature books? Count the signatures and match them to votes cast.
Obvipushy this will be back in court tomorrow.
