    ST. LUCIE COUNTY -- Attorneys for Allen West said late Thursday they had discovered possible discrepancies after a review of early and absentee ballot information. Nearly 1,000 votes may be in question, according to Tim Edson, Allen West for Congress campaign manager. In a letter to Secretary of State Ken Detzner, attorneys said 110 early votes were cast in a precinct that didn't have enough early voters to support the number of votes cast. Four hundred eighty-eight people cast early votes in precinct 28, they said, but election returns showed 499 early votes were counted. Attorneys also raised concerns about...

    “I’m not perfect,” St. Lucie County Elections Supervisor Gertrude Walker said Tuesday. “Neither is my staff.” Given the events of the past week, it’s hard to disagree. Because of her office’s flawed handling of last week’s election, uncertainty hangs needlessly over Patrick Murphy’s stunning defeat of Rep. Allen West. Ms. Walker was stating the obvious when she admitted fallibility at a news conference, as reported by TCPalm.com. But when you’re overseeing a congressional election whose margin of victory is less than 1 percent, there isn’t much room for error.

    The St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections is admitting that mistakes were made on election night When uploading results from the last three days of early voting, Gertrude Walker blames human and machine errors, telling TC Palm "i'm not perfect, neither is my staff". 40 of 94 precincts, mostly in Fort Pierce, weren't counted at all and another 54 precincts were counted twice. In total ballots, more than 3,600 in St. Lucie were counted twice, while 1,953 were not scanned at all. Walker says a retabulation on sunday corrected the error, and she claims she's confident that every vote has...

    First of all let us all agree that Allen West is a man’s man. He has the courage of a titan and needs to go the distance on this fraud and corruption in St. Lucie County, Florida. Allen West’s courage is what we look for in a real leader one who would be president. This is the kind of leadership we were looking for from Mitt Romney. Why isn’t Romney helping West with this alleged scam of an election? He should be helping West uncover what seems to be corruption on a gigantic scale to steal this election from West....

    Phoenix – A mother and daughter, both wanted in Florida on charges of racketeering, were apprehended by alert U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport Wednesday night.
