Per FACEBOOK, the latest on the Allen West recount. For not stated reason, the recount is now shutting down for the night and set to begin tomorrow at 8 am. The recount deadline is tomorrow at noon. If anyone has any updates, please post them here.
let me get this straight okay...we’re doing this recount of a specific area and if West gets enough votes to close the gap within a certain percentage, then he can request a FREE automatic recount of the whole district?....
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!
So, when will the stray trunks and boxes of totally dhimmi votes show up?
Anyone keeping a video log of the place?
Not finished yet? Does this mean Gertrude has to spend more time in the hospital?
Hasn’t the popular Boehner already been reelected as Speaker?
All RINOs would prefer Pelosi to West.
There’s something strange about this. They had completed all 8 days of the early vote ballots, over 20,000!.
They had spent the last two hours counting the 306 uncounted ballots that showed up mysteriously in Gertrude Walker’s office. That’s all they had left to do! I don’t get it. On Election Night they were there until well past midnight. What was the rush tonight to shut the place down and stop the count?
I thought Bonehead had already been re-elected, as well :( Only one guy - Rep Louis Gohmert (R-TX) - had the guts to nominate someone else. He nominated Newt and NONE of the sniveling cowards had the guts to 2nd it.
LTC West won in 2 counties out of 3 in district 18. He could win the election without winning St. Lucie County 2 with enough votes from there.
I don’t think you can elect the Speaker until the new house is seated, in January. We are in the Lame Duck session. The old House, pre-election is still seated.
West was winning?
“What was the rush tonight to shut the place down and stop the count?”
Nothing good comes to mind.
The vote counters probably were over worked and needed a break. If they are gov’t workers, they are not used to working hard or long. Ask me, I was one for 1/3 of my working years.
Not at all. Nominations are in progress and the vote for speaker of the new congress doesn't happen until the new congress is sworn in.
Time to regroup, and in the middle of the night, stuff another previously unfound box of votes stored in back of the mens toilet at the Stuckeys truck stop!
There is no request, it’s mandated by statute. A difference of .5% or less triggers a mandatory district-wide recount.
Pretty sure they are write-in ballots. They are handled differently.
FISHY Allen West recount finalization delayed until tomorrow morning
Patrick Murphy sounds like white Irish to me so how come the rats don’t consider Murphy’s objection to a recount racism?
Yep - my first thought too - they will not properly guard the facilities and someone will break in overnight...
ALLEN WEST RECOUNT UPDATE via Dale Davis: Just by the numbers:
Our winning number is 3,308
Our winning magic number is 1,907 (still a recount)
Our mandatory recount number is 1,654
254 more votes needed to kick in a three county
mandatory recount of every ballot cast.
If there is a vote swing of just 127 ballots
then we will recount the whole Congressional District 18.
(vote swing means if Murphy lost a vote, and West gained a vote that is a two vote swing, hence double 127= 254)
So in St. Lucie County:
difference....(12,895) if this number drops below 12,641
there will be a mandatory recount.
If the (12,895) drops to 9,587 Allen West is the winner, no recount.
Did anybody ask and/or find out from the election officials just what was in the boxes that were carried in yesterday or are we supposed to assume the worst???
Final election results should be here by high Noon:
