i’m from Missouri, & i’m cornfused. read somewhere this evening that murphy’s lead had increased from .058 to .065% during the recount. is that right? also, was the story about precinct 93 w/900 votes out of 7 registered voters true?.....I saw the story disparaged. is there a list of fraud that Allen is basing his continuing appeal on? Did they count that last found batch of 306 votes?
The 306 votes were hand replaced with new ones since the machine kicks out write-ins. She originally took them to the office and left them there. No one knew they were there until auditors found them. Just before the deadline they were fed into a broken machine as the observers complained that it was the one they had to stop using yesterday...no response from the staff they said and yes, when the final tally was to be made that tape was rejected and the recount was not done in time. Shortly after 11 they all went into another room to decide what to do and stayed till it was too late.
Yes, it seems to be true about the district. I should go to the site and see the totals when they are posted. Originally there were 6 votes split evenly. This is a small Guatemalan Community.
Did you see the pictures of the boxes when they were all sent out of the building at night? each box next to the machine used to count them and with the print out on the machine. The pictures the next morning showed all the boxes moved to tables and now there were seals on them...
1654 votes would cause a mandatory recount. Well 900 might be in one place! Comparisons of poll books and totals has not been allowed...maybe the rest are buried in there too.
Don’t forget they changed their totals after the other counties were reported. not reported until very late and the other counties he won were in at a normal time. They said it was the early votes that were wrong and they had counted them again...then tried to do different days when caught.
I can’t find any information anywhere about that 900-vote claim, except in one news story which claims to be reporting something they heard from someone connected to the campaign.
The 93rd precinct in that county DOES list 7 registered voters as having voted, and 6 votes cast, 3 for West, 3 for Murphy.
I suppose it’s possible that during the recount, someone wrote the wrong number on a spreadsheet. But there is no formal report on the internet about the recount.
The I’ve read that Murphy picked up 200 votes in the recount. Since they didn’t get done in time, at the moment those new recounted results don’t count.
I think West’s statement tonight is terse, and to the point.
