Skip to comments.Video: Angry crowd reacts to ‘misleading recount’ in Allen West race
Posted on 11/11/2012 3:59:23 PM PST by SmileRight
Allen West supporters expressed shock in Fort Pierce on Sunday, but not because the finally tally in St. Lucie Countys Congressional District 18 race showed West gaining 201 more votes but because it was only based on a cherry picked partial recount and the supervisor refused to explain why.
Despite the persistent questions over fairness and accuracy, county attorneys, the county canvassing board and Elections Supervisor Gertrude Walker refused to answer questions from the campaigns or the press throughout the entire exercise. When the machine count was finished, elections officials announced the total and immediately had a sheriffs deputy instruct everyone to leave...

Thank you for the history lesson! Think of how many places this scene needs to be repeated in present-day America.
AKA the Klan with a Tan.
Well....shall we take a road trip to FL. to support him?
Actually NZ is better, but they are very hard nosed about who can come there. In OZ you can live off the grid for a long time. There isn’t enough law enforcement to come hunting after you should you over stay your visa. Gotta remember the whole country is almost as big as the USA but has the population of LA.
Oz has its quirks, its dangers but the most thrilling part of it is the vast emptiness wanting to be filled. I spent my life traveling across America, been there done that, Alaska has been my home for the last 20 years, its actully quite safe from Obama but I’m getting out while I can before I have to flee to Canada and then having to use a Canadian passport to enter OZ.
If they had a problem with the cards from the early voting days of Nov. 1 - 2 - 3, then they need to recount them. Here’s a bit of info from another thread.
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.
We are all Guatemalans now...
Bump and pfl
Allen West needs to sue the county of Palm Beach
What does Palm Beach County have to do with this event that is in St. Lucie County?
I hear ya. Back an animal into a corner and see what happens. It's not going to be pretty.
Bumping the thread so all can see.
This election was stolen in front of our faces and the powers that be are banking on us shrugging our shoulders and moving on.
Those on FRepublic who still believe this election was lost because of low voter turn-out by conservatives should get their heads up out of the sand.
I wonder who in Tallahassee? In the spirit of Truth and Sanctity of the Vote, who are they throwing under the bus?
...and we are very, VERY tired of being discounted and f**ked with.
Well-stated, FRiend. I'm waiting for a commander to step up. Henry Bowman had the right idea.
It’s not who votes that counts. It’s who counts the votes.
In the spirit of Truth and Sanctity of the Vote, who are they throwing under the bus?
Lowest person on the totem poll..... lol..
lol, wonder who agreed to take the fall?
They will hopefully take action in other states and precincts if this gets into the courts. But there isn’t a role for Romney at this point. So many people voted, we’ll never know-or be able to prove-the extent of the Fraud that was foisted upon us.
I’m interested in a down under move as well. I’m married, 30 years, have a 3 year old, both my wife and I have a BS in finance/business. Can you help me, I have no idea what steps to take?!
