Sadly, no matter what they find will make any difference...........I’m sure there was widespread fraud—but I don’t think it will ever be uncovered.

Just in case enough fraud were found to make a difference in the final count, though, I wonder what would happen then...........

Yes! Thank God for West! The only one willing to stand up and try to ensure that his constituents vote counts.

Your link at the top works perfectly.

Prayers for Allen West.

This is sounding better.

A full recount will show him the winner, unless the machines were someone cleansed and reset.

***********************

On the Monday following the second Wednesday of December (as established in federal law) each State's Electors meet in their respective State capitals and cast their electoral votes - one for president and one for vice president.

Thus enough discrepancies would have to be found in enough states to change the current publicized outcome before the above date.

I'm not sure there was a lot of fraud in St. Lucie county as much as their was just plain incompetency within the county election supervisor/department.

Hard to say at this point- but Florida is one of very few states to test and certify voting systems that are permissible to use. That “re-tabulation” with a 799 vote shift FAR exceeds the acceptable error rate: 5% vs .00002%

It also sounds like she was instructed to re-tabulate all the early votes and failed to comply.

I expect them to start with a “recount” of all the early votes, and depending on how much of a difference is found, take some stronger measures. Perhaps a full recount of all the votes, either by machine or manually. They (as the Governor's agents) have a lot of power.

Remember there is another race (Ft. Pierce City Mayoral race) that has a difference of only a few votes. So it isn't just West, but the integrity of the whole process.

Isn’t this the county that destroyed all the ballots after the first “count?” There is no way to fix this short of disallowing the entire county’s canvas.

The House is the ultimate judge of its own elections. If there is proof of fraud, it can order the seat be deemed vacant, which will require Florida to hold another election.

There is no excuse to not recount every single vote in the election for West.

I have very little doubt West would prevail if the true count is revealed.

Both West and Murphy lost St. Lucie County votes in Sunday's recount. Compared with earlier figures, West lost 132 and Murphy 667.

Sunday's recount also reversed the lead in the race for mayor of Fort Pierce. Linda Hudson gained 233 votes, putting her ahead of Vince Gaskin, who gained 151 votes. That race remained close enough to trigger a recount, which is scheduled for Wednesday.

St. Lucie County Assistant Attorney Heather Young explained the reason for Sunday's recount before it began around 8 a.m.

“There was an issue with the memory cards that record the ballots when they're fed through the machines originally,” Young said. “The state has recommended — not just in St. Lucie County, but also in other counties where problems occurred with the memory cards — that ballots be recounted.”

*****************

It seems they need to recount the entire county vote both early, absentee and election day to try to satisfy all questions regarding the count and their incompetence's.

No clue- I don’t know anything about election laws in other states.

This isn’t happening because of the party- it is about state law, and our state elections office stepping in to make sure the count is accurate before the final count of overseas military on Friday.

If I lived in Ohio, I would be working hard to eliminate same day registration and insisting on voter ID laws. Philadelphia is worse than Chicago- hopelessly corrupt.

That’s not possible- with 2 races disputed in one county, no ballots can be destroyed until all challenges are complete. Up to 7 years.
They just emptied the warehouse with all the statewide votes from election 2000. Kept them locked up for 10 years.

She has been head of the department for 25 years. I doubt it was anything as simple as incompetence unless these screw ups are regular occurrences or unless there were last minute procedures instituted that has totally thrown everyone off.

The Florida Division of Elections is sending three employees to St. Lucie County on Wednesday to try to figure out how 799 votes disappeared...

Well -- it's about time. You finally woke up.

It's not like those blackened ovals on those ballots bleached white on their own sitting in those boxes for 3 days???

And more than that is how those 799 fewer votes affected other races.

Are there now mysteriously 799 fewer votes or fewer ballots???

You maybe correct but I was referring to the counting machines having trouble counting the first three days of early voting. They then said they’d recount all the early votes on Sunday morning, then changed to just the first three days. If one doesn’t understand the machines, the functions and how they work when a glitch occurs then they become incompentent to deal with the problems. Maybe they had qualified help, I don’t know.

With evidence mounting that the vote tabulation did not reflect the true choices of voters, talk-radio icon Rush Limbaugh echoed the Daily News, saying Monday: “Third-world, tin-horn dictators don’t get [these percentages]. I mean, the last guy that got this percentage of the vote was Saddam Hussein, and the people that didn’t vote for him got shot. This just doesn’t happen. Even Hugo Chavez [of Venezuela] doesn’t get 100 percent or 99 percent of the vote.”

Don't know who that might have been but he's mistaken. The overseas military votes will be counted on Friday statewide, and local certification follows that.

There is a photo now circulating on the web accompanied by a rumor that there are several boxes of military votes in West's District that wont be counted. The person who took it means well, but has been less than reliable. (Gary something)

If it is true- and I assume they would have to be from Palm Beach County, not St.Lucie, which is so much smaller- it could be very good news for Congressman West. I expect him to carry a good majority of military votes.

Because they are accepted longer than regular absentees and counted last, we really don't know how many military votes are outstanding.

Yes- and those numbers changed too much, also. Still within the .5% margin to trigger an automatic machine recount- which I believe they are going to do tomorrow.

All those number shifts not only exceed the state regulations for “acceptable error rate” (.00002%) but I think the federal law (HAVA) has the same standard. I think that’s why the state is coming down to supervise. If her memory cards are truly faulty, it will show on the precinct vote compared to the sign in sheets. Then they need to handcount the ballots, and settle this thing!

I just wish West had better legal advice, If he really has all the millions on hand the media claims he does, he can buy a true expert in Florida law. Like Richard Coates, or Mike DeGrande or Bucky Mitchell. Someone who knows better than to file a contest action before the count is certified.

Look at this!! She had a press conference tonight- first she blamed the Division of Elections for the confusion. Said she wanted to count all the early votes and they told her not to. (Sure! That’s why they are racing down there to clean up her mess.)
Now she is admitting just how badly she messed up- exactly as West claimed election night.

That Supervisor created a form on her first page no one else I know in the state uses, to account for each card voted of a multi-card ballot. Each voter there got 2 cards, some voted all the questions on both cards, some didn't.
Her stupid form created a firestorm, and not even she can explain it.
This state elections office link has all the results reported so far for each race in each county:
http://enight.elections.myflorida.com/MyElection/County/default.aspx?sid=StLucieCounty&referral=track

Her complete report is 170 pages long, and shows precinct level votes for each race. The average turnout for county wide votes is 70%
St. Lucie 123,750 votes cast 175,554 eligible voters= 70%

That does not include the military ballots which will be counted statewide on Friday.

Hope that helps-
