State elections officials coming to St.Lucie Wednesday. Concerned that all 37000 votes not re-tabulated, + error percentage
Here is link to the article- sorry!
Horses out, now close the barn door.
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.
Good post. I was wondering what the latest was. Interesting comments from liberals following the article. Heads will explode should West win.
Give them plenty of warning and don’t impound the ballots. I’m sure it will work out fine...
Send in Jimmy Peanut and the UN!
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.
I live and voted in saint Lucie County florida.
I voted by mail and have absolutely zero confidence it was recorded properly.
Pathetic crooks running the show that will do anything to get rid of Colonel West.
Will the R party get recounts for the obvious problem areas of Philadelphia and Cleveland and...?
“unless the machines were someone cleansed and reset.”
Probably the first thing they did after the first ‘tally’.
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.
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.
Gertrude Ward, = yep, if she had the know how.
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.
Sadly, I’m sure you’re not the only one who feels that way.
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.
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.
