West seeks injunction to impound ballots, voting machines
Palm Beach Post ^ | November 7th, 2012 | George Bennett

Posted on 11/07/2012 4:58:54 PM PST by LeoWindhorse

FORT PIERCE — Republican U.S. Rep. Allen West wants courts to order elections officials to impound ballots and voting machines in preparation for a recount following his narrow loss to Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy.

Motions for injunctions were filed in St. Lucie and Palm Beach counties. Information wasn’t immediately available from Martin County, the third county in congressional District 18.

West trails Murphy by 2,456 votes or 0.78 percent. That’s not close enough to trigger a state law that requires a recount for races decided by 0.5 percent or less. But West claims irregularities in the way St. Lucie County counted its early ballots.

There should be plenty of evidence on that hard drive.

If an e machine claims that only 200 people voted for romney on it, and if one can find, let’s say for example about 600 people who claim that they voted for romney on that same machine....there you go.

No cries of ‘racism’ from the leftists in defense of Allen West? Black and conservative is the new ‘ni66er’ in the DUnited Cities of Amerikkka.

There are sign in sheets. Can count voters there. It’s extremely difficult to challenge election results and the clock is ticking. Usually the challenger looks like sour grapes sore lose and hurts their future careers.

Unless West has some insider info or feels he has a high high probabilty of success he should concede and run in two years. He’d be a popular speaker.

Yes, this isn’t the rah rah speech. But I’ve been through this dance a few times. Telling you how it plays out.

Yes! In Florida we vote on a paper ballot and that ballot is fed into a machine that reads it . We have a paper trail.

When dems do voter fraud - they 'vote' the people who don't show up to vote.

If the FBI had sprinkled fake names in important swing districts - AND records showed those nonexistent people had voted, we'd have them. Since the FBI didn't bother - random names in black precincts ( yes, that's where fraud traditionally takes place) could be pulled to see if those people actually voted.

It's why 'the dead' vote. It's NOT that dems want to vote the dead, it's that dead people don't show up to vote and get pulled into the fraud accidentally.

I think you hit on something here! He *CAN* be speaker this January... the Speaker of the House need not be a [current or even former] member. All that needs to happen is his name be put in the ring, and then he gets the votes. Should easily surpass the deal-maker.

WA State is also reviewing all the ballots. There were 20,000 ballots thrown out just a few hours after voting closed and everyone of those voters will be tracked down.

That’s called ‘seeding’ and is exactly what the Dr. ordered for this vote-for-who-didn’t scenario, thank you.

Course it’s too late now.

The is the LEAST he deserves. Big deal anyway. He is just a regular American. Nothing special. Hopefully he will retire to his mansion and never appear again.

How DARE he? You are only supposed to recount votes if the Democrat is behind. Then you recount them as long as it takes for the Democrat to get ahead. Then you stop.

I’d certainly have them impound the absentee ballots since it’s been revealed that the Obama campaign took 2010 Census reports and ‘helped” their voters get absentee ballots. That needs to be investigated, because those absentee ballots could have been gathered and filled in and submitted by the Obama campaign.

Listening to descriptions of how “Democrats got out their ground game” with “superior ability to bring those to the polls who normally would never go” last night...made me realize..what they actually are doing is tracking names that HAVE NOT VOTED IN MANY, MANY elections cycles....and voting them.

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/10/23/No-Car-Finds-2-214-Registered-Voters-110-Years-of-Age-Older

A well-funded project, county-by-county..to examine the names signed in at at the polls..and going out to find those individuals..you’ll find they were never physically at he polls..or they themselves never filled out the absentee ballot....or their names in the death registers.

Im sure ‘irregularities’ put BO back in the WH in Ohio and other states but nothing will be done about it.

Election fraud is exactly what happened.

What we have to do is prove it.

Consider the Senate races

How coincidental that with the exception of Ensign in Nevada (not really a battleground state) all (R) senators in Battlegrounds (VA, FL, OH, WI) went down even as they did in states carried handily by Romney (IN, MO, ND, MT)? In fact we almost knew the Senate seat loss before we knew the Presidential outcome.

What about those touch screen shennanigans reported as switches from Romney to Obama?

Each of the battlegrounds VA, FL, OH, WI) are solid (R) -- both chambers and the Gov. Most went that way in 2010. (R)'s won down ticket House races.

What I want to know from tech savvy types is this: how does someone hack a voting machine, how does one detect it?

Can some well placed kid hanging around on a cell phone communicating to an embedded chip in the machine watch voters and time his "click" with that of the voter -- regardless how he intended to vote? Is this possible?

In these highly (R) states, will an investigation be launched by their SOSs and Atty Generals to determine what happened?

I donated to West's campaign and here is the email I received today:

 

Alfred,

First and foremost, I want to thank you for all that you have done throughout the campaign. Your support has been truly incredible. I'm writing to give you an update on where things stand.

Our race is far from decided and there is no rush to declare an outcome. Ensuring a fair and accurate counting of all ballots is of the utmost importance. There are still thousands of absentee ballots to be counted in Palm Beach County and military and provisional ballots across the district. Given the numerous reports of irregularities at the polls and the chaos surrounding the counting of ballots, it is important that we carefully evaluate the results and investigate the irregularities.

I know how hard you have worked for our campaign and I am grateful to have you standing shoulder to shoulder with me. I want you to know that we will fight to ensure every ballot is counted just as we will continue to fight to ensure our Republic remains exceptional and the future of our children and grandchildren is bright. For 22 years I stood as a watchman on the wall to guard America’s honor, liberty, freedom, and democracy.  Now I will continue my oath of service to guard the integrity of our electoral process.

Steadfast and Loyal,

Allen B. West

Good Hunting... from Varmint Al
