On a scale from incompetence to outright election fraud I'd strongly lean to the latter.
NOT OVER YET: FLORIDA DIVISION OF ELECTIONS OFFICIAL RECOMMENDS RETABULATION OF ABOUT 20K MORE EARLY VOTES IN ALLEN WEST RACE
..........explain to this Californian who is Jamie Dupree?
300 plus votes indeed! What do you want to bet that90%+ are for the lib.
That may well be the law, but I guarantee you once Murphy is certified, West will be found to have no standing with out regard to the law or his evidence or anything else.
That is how the court sytem shuts us subjects down, that is hwo this game is played.
OK! Thank you.
Who is watching them count?
There are votes in my trunk.... there are votes in my closet... am I winning now? I found some more in a gym bag in the locker... look over there, some ballots under the table we somehow missed.... am I winnig yet?
Good news...Hopefully the canvassing board will go for the recount.
Next, it will be “my dog ate them”!
If this is our election process, God save us!
She could be playing the sympathy angle now (out of the office for medical testing).
Any official who’s lost and found ballots is incompetent and needs to be recalled (can the County fire her since she was just elected?).
A Republican did this, 24/7 until they were fired and Holder brought them up on Civil Rights violations.
The Hypocrisy these libs have been allowed by the MSM and Beltway Elites to get away with, disgusts me.
I meant “mission accomplished” as being dems always win with the old “found ballots” jig, with just enough Republican “votes” in the mix to make it semi-believable.
However, I hope you’re right and that these are truly stolen ballots of legally cast votes. I also hope West continues his fight.
No matter, this woman should be thrown under the jail, but she won’t be.
I agree. We Americans do not control our own elections anymore. Everything is controlled for us by the government. The government in power selects the winners and losers now.
Regrettably (or fortunately as the case may be) in Florida the County Supervisor of Elections is an elected official and can only be removed by the Governor and only with overwhelming justification.
Love it when someone looks at the law! Here is the most current Florida election law compilation from the Division for you!
Chapter 102 talks about the contest provisions after certification. FS 102.168
(1) Except as provided in s. 102.171, the certification of election or nomination of any person to office, or of the result on any question submitted by referendum, may be contested in the circuit court by any unsuccessful candidate for such office or nomination thereto or by any elector qualified to vote in the election related to such candidacy, or by any taxpayer, respectively. (2) Such contestant shall file a complaint, together with the fees prescribed in chapter 28, with the clerk of the circuit court within 10 days after midnight of the date the last board responsible for certifying the results officially certifies the results of the election being contested. (3) The complaint shall set forth the grounds on which the contestant intends to establish his or her right to such office or set aside the result of the election on a submitted referendum. The grounds for contesting an election under this section are: (a) Misconduct, fraud, or corruption on the part of any election official or any member of the canvassing board sufficient to change or place in doubt the result of the election. (b) Ineligibility of the successful candidate for the nomination or office in dispute. (c) Receipt of a number of illegal votes or rejection of a number of legal votes sufficient to change or place in doubt the result of the election. (d)
Proof that any elector, election official, or canvassing board member was given or offered a bribe or reward in money, property, or any other thing of value for the purpose of procuring the successful candidates nomination or election or determining the result on any question submitted by referendum.
The canvassing board responsible for canvassing the election is an indispensable party defendant in county and local elections. The Elections Canvassing Commission is an indispensable party defendant in federal, state, and multicounty elections and in elections for justice of the Supreme Court, judge of a district court of appeal, and judge of a circuit court. The successful candidate is an indispensable party to any action brought to contest the election or nomination of a candidate.
A statement of the grounds of contest may not be rejected, nor the proceedings dismissed, by the court for any want of form if the grounds of contest provided in the statement are sufficient to clearly inform the defendant of the particular proceeding or cause for which the nomination or election is contested.
A copy of the complaint shall be served upon the defendant and any other person named therein in the same manner as in other civil cases under the laws of this state. Within 10 days after the complaint has been served, the defendant must file an answer admitting or denying the allegations on which the contestant relies or stating that the defendant has no knowledge or information concerning the allegations, which shall be deemed a denial of the allegations, and must state any other defenses, in law or fact, on which the defendant relies. If an answer is not filed within the time prescribed, the defendant may not be granted a hearing in court to assert any claim or objection that is required by this subsection to be stated in an answer.
Any candidate, qualified elector, or taxpayer presenting such a contest to a circuit judge is entitled to an immediate hearing. However, the court in its discretion may limit the time to be consumed in taking testimony, with a view therein to the circumstances of the matter and to the proximity of any succeeding election.
In any contest that requires a review of the canvassing boards decision on the legality of an absentee ballot pursuant to s. 101.68 based upon a comparison of the signature on the voters certificate and the signature of the elector in the registration records, the circuit court may not review or consider any evidence other than the signature on the voters certificate and the signature of the elector in the registration records. The courts review of such issue shall be to determine only if the canvassing board abused its discretion in making its decision.

ATHENS, TENNESSEE 1947 !!!!
I asked this elsewhere-—
Cant the GOP legaly put up the money
to pay for a recount of the whole district.
Just pay and get it done with instead of
They are crooked!
We really need to get the election supervisors in as conservatives.
Read the law, Chris- you are mistaken. All West needs is enough money to hire a decent lawyer!
(off by 1 year)
ATHENS, TENNESSEE 1946 !!
3 or 4 people from the state Division of Elections, plus representatives from both campaigns and political parties. And press. Plus it has to be open to the public.
Win or lose - Allen West for House Speaker. San Franfreakshow & Soros spent tens of millions to take out one of our best.
If it is important enough for these treasonous bastards to spend that kind of money on a first term congressman, we should not give them the victory. If he wins this race, nominate him House Speaker. If he loses this race, make him House Speaker. (They also had Bill Clinton come out here fundraising for that homosexual Murphy).
Folks on the ground at the meeting are reporting that the canvassing board is about ready to cave...
You are probably right- poor me- they are all perennial victims. But it didn’t work the last time- other than letting her retire instead of removing her.
The Governor has the power to remove her for cause- but we aren’t there yet. The people from the state are looking at her procedures, policies, budget, training, personnel qualifications, etc, in addition to the faulty machines. You need a lot of proof to overturn the votes of the people.
Unless she decides to RETIRE!!
Thanks, again. Can they check on them - look to see if they are counting the ballots correctly? Or just be in the room?
Not under Florida law. But a judge can order it during the contest phase- he can order any remedy he chooses. Typically, the candidate pays for it.
I got 2 requests so far from the national RNC for $$ for West.
The state people can- and do- pay very close attention, and make sure all the numbers add up, and the procedure is correct to prevent double counting, etc.
It sounds like they have no procedure at all there!
Most lay people have no idea what to look for- it can be very confusing, watching boxes moving about.
He also said it took more than 3 hours for them to count 40 military ballots. If true, it will take them all night and day and then some to count 20,000 more early votes!
is this one of the places where they already had over 100% voter turnout? if it is, how does it make sense to throw in even more votes, if there are already too many? wt*?
I know that the law is in Mr. West’s favor, I and I know that based upon that my assertion is not correct.
However, I am considering that he courts are utterly corrupt, and they will do what they need to do to shut him down.
Essentially, the same thing they did to Mr. Berg when he filed the first birth certificate related suit against Obama before he was elected wherein the courts tossed his case saying you cannot challenge someone’s eligibility to be president before they actually are president.
So Berg waited, Obama was elected, and he sued again, where he was then found to have no standing, case tossed again.
It’s a catch 22. Let’s hope that I am wrong and paranoid here, but I’m telling you that the courts will damn West whether he does or does not do.
Judging from that, she is still up to her old tricks.
Now to get within 800 votes and the other 2 counties will cover that!
As I predicted! They are counting all 37000 early votes, plus the box of “found” ballots tomorrow at 9am.
The canvassing board had to cave under all the pressure.
Now if the earlier 5% error rate holds, West should qualify for the automatic recount of all 3 counties.
We are finally getting somewhere.
St. Lucie Elections Supervisor Gertrude Walker is already caliming illness and has bailed.
St. Lucie Elections Supervisor Gertrude Walker is already claiming illness and has bailed.
thank you for that update , please keep us all informed.
Lets just hope those bag of ballots are not fraud votes which they were going to use if they need more votes.
Any election that's "too close to call" is gonna get stolen by the Commiecrats with votes that had been "previously uncounted or misplaced," now suddenly found.
Commiecrats are enemies of the state.
Let’s hope the count tomorrow shows the 250 more votes he needs to trigger a recount of all 3 counties. Palm Beach has a lot of weirdness in their counts, too. If his margin of victory there widens- or in Martin, where he won decisively, he could pull this out after all.
please all of you call the Gov Rick Scott and tell him to do an investigation.
some time ago I looked at the left as people wiht different views but not now, they are nothing but socialists or idiots .
Today I have no time for any of them and yes I tell them that, Gov Scotts office is 850) 488-7146
in this state we have the south east counties and they are always corrupt, full of liberals from up north etc and they show our state up.
