West seeks hearing after Murphy camp declares victory when St. Lucie board misses noon deadline
The Palm Beach Post ^ | 11-18-2012 | Christine Stapleton

Posted on 11/18/2012 10:15:26 AM PST by deport

The St. Lucie County canvassing board has missed a noon deadline to file election results to the Division of Elections, prompting campaign officials for Patrick Murphy to declare the political newcomer the winner in the race for congressional District 18 race.

Under Florida law, the final certified results were due from all of the state’s 67 supervisors of elections today. If the results do not arrive on time, the certified unofficial results submitted last Sunday stand. Those results have Murphy winning by 0.58 percent. A spread of less than 0.5 percent would have triggered an automatic recount.

“Today at noon, it became clear Patrick Murphy will be officially certified as the next congressman from the 18th Congressional District,” Anthony Kusich, Murphy for Congressman campaign manager, said in a prepared statement issued around 12:40 p.m. “The voters have spoken and Patrick Murphy is once again the clear winner. It is beyond time to put this campaign behind us and put the interests of the people of the Treasure Coast and Palm Beaches first.”

.....

Tim Edson, Murphy’s campaign manager, disagreed.

“As usual, Murphy’s people are full of garbage,” Edson said. “This is something the secretary of state and governor will have to sort out.”

Edson said other problems arose this morning. The recount showed 900 voters cast ballots in precinct 93, where there are 7 registered voters, Edson said.

“We have concerns here,” Edson said. “The results are raising more questions.”

Shortly after the deadline passed, attorneys for West headed to the St. Lucie County Courthouse to request an emergency hearing on the issue. It is not known if a hearing has been scheduled.

If the County missed the legal deadline, then none of its votes can be counted. Without them, West wins.

**********

Florida Law or so I’ve read on some of these threads states that if the deadline is missed then the official count resorts back to the previous count which was last Sunday or some such time. I have no idea if that is correct or not.

West being screwed is the least of it.

We are screwed. The people cheering are screwed, but they are too stupid to even realize it.

America is screwed. She is dead.

Freedom is scerwed. It does not exist.

And everyone will go about their daily lives, because that is all we know.

Evil has won.

They’ll just probably use the previous, blatantly BAD vote count that was submitted and call it a day.

Dems need to be hip-checked on this one.

Without an honest election process followed by all parties, America is lost.

Where is the State of Floridah? Does the State condone such voter fraud? This beginning to sound a whole lot like another Bob Dornan situation. In kaliforinia its no surprise, in Florida it is.

Help put the pressure on Tea Party reps in congress to nominate Allen West as Speaker of the House.

*The speaker does not have to be an elected member of the house.
*The majority “can” control the vote for speaker, but that doesn’t mean the speaker is guaranteed to be a republican.
If the TP caucus would stick together on this they could force the RINOs to support West or chance giving the seat back to Pelosi.
* It’s time to stand up!

No wonder St. Lucie County agreed to the “full”vrecount of the early votes. They knew all along the deadline would come and go. The fix was in from the start.

And I agree.. America as we knew her is dead. Dead and dishonored.

Count the votes until the Democrat is ahead, then stop.

If the Republican is ahead when you have counted all the votes then find some more votes to count.

If the Republican is still ahead then recount the votes how ever many times it takes until the Democrat is ahead, then stop.

900 votes in a district that has 7 registered voters? For a US Representative job that pays $175,000 a year? I’d be willing to chip in some money to pay these grifters to not cheat. You have to be making more than $175k to cheat like this. The Democrats are just grifters. Con men out to steal from the public treasury. Read The Declaration Of Independence again.

UPDATE 1:47 P.M.: West going to court — Will contest certification – From “a source close to Allen West” provided to Legal Insurrection:

St Lucie missed the deadline for certification, so automatically the previous results are what go to the Secretary of State for final certification.

Our attorneys are seeing if it’s possible (today) to get an emergency extension of the deadline.

We have until Nov 30 (10 days) to contest the election in Talahassee, and then there would be a hearing scheduled in December.

Of course, the Secretary of State may decide to NOT certify the results because of the discrepancies -and we have yet to see the results of the auditor’s report which may recommend a retabulation.

Just as background, one precinct has 7 voters registered and yet recorded about 900 votes. That’s a 13,000 percent turnout.

Clearly, something is amiss.

America no longer exists.

A diamond covered in manure is still a diamond. It just needs a bit of cleaning. On November 6, we were dropped in a steaming pile by people who thought that opening their hands for feebies was more important than hanging on to what was truly valuable. So for now, ignore the stench, press on and be the real American in your sphere of influence.

New guidelines for all voting precincts:

From now on you count only the first Ballot. It must be declared Democrat no matter what. That is the only result to be sent in. Wait until the deadline when no other votes may be counted and the Democrats may then declare victory.

I am preparing for the fall.

There isn’t going to be any avoiding it.

I have already influenced all of those that I can, and it isn’t even close enough.

The enemy is manufacturing drones from our children. They are systematic and we were asleep.

If we were to look at our progress versus their progress in this war on a line graph, our line is not even visible.

Prepare for the fall.

The missed deadline now increases pressure on Gov. Rick Scott and Secretary of State Ken Detzner, who have to certify final results on Tuesday.

Missing the deadline is the latest fumble for St. Lucie County election officials, and it likely to add ammunition to Mr. West’s claims that the election count has been botched from the beginning.

His accusations gained steam Friday when officials said they’d found a box with hundreds of early voting ballots that had never been counted in the first place.
