ALLEN WEST NOW LEADS INITIAL VOTE COUNT IN ONE FLA. COUNTY
theBlaze ^ | November 8, 2012 | Madeleine Morgenstern

Posted on 11/08/2012 4:57:46 PM PST by FreeAtlanta

Rep. Allen West is leading by more than 300 votes in Palm Beach County, Fla., a hopeful sign for the Tea Party favorite fighting for his political life after Tuesday’s election, a source told TheBlaze.

No winner has been declared in the congressional race between the Republican West and his Democratic opponent Patrick Murphy, though Murphy had a 2,456-vote lead in the unofficial vote total.

But a Republican observer who has been monitoring the counting process said West pulled ahead in Palm Beach County on Thursday as the initial count continues. Ballot printing errors led to ballots that could not be fed through scanners in some areas, so Florida election workers have been forced to reproduce their contents onto new ballots that can be read properly, the observer said. As the votes are counted for the first time, West has taken a slim lead.

It’s a separate issue from what’s happening in St. Lucie County, where West has demanded a recount over “disturbing irregularities.” He filed a motion Wednesday to have paper ballots counted and to impound voting machines and all paper ballots cast, WFOR-TV reported.

The observer called St. Lucie County more Republican in makeup while Palm Beach County is a mix but overall Democratic.

“The fact that he is ahead, period, even in this county is a good sign,” the observer said.

Freelance writer Charles C. Johnson contributed to this report.

Maybe the Democrats were just a little too greedy with their election stealing? Wouldn't this be a great linchpin to have removed to expose the massive vote fraud/coup coup d'etat that was pulled on America?

There is no way there were fewer people voting for Romney or against Obama than there were voting for McCain. Did they dump conservative strong holds across the country?

"He filed a motion Wednesday to have paper ballots counted and to impound voting machines and all paper ballots cast, WFOR-TV reported."

US forces like National Guard should be assigned to stand watch at every polling place from opening until closing at which time they lock the place down and impound all ballots and equipment until an impartial count is conducted.

In Washington State the democrats conducted three recounts in 2004 and mysteriously found more boxes full of ballots each time. Finally they took it to a judge with an ear ring who declared them the winner.

I wish more Repubics would fight back instead of trying to be the nice guy all the time. This is war, and Congressman West understands that fact. I hope and pray he wins!

I , afraid for the republic and some others on here have been calling thse results strange and have been looking into FL, WI, OH, VA sadly only the COL has called the Dems out and has fond votes which were never counted for him.

Every vote in OH, FL, VA, OH shoudl be looked at again as these results do not make sense

They have done that time and again across the country. That unfunny comedian senator comes to mind.

The left cries that we are the babies when we object. When are we going to take a stand? I hope Congressman West is the anchor on our line and we stand across the country. Enough is enough.

Not sure that it matters the outcome. Col West has a great future in the Republican Party (or the Libertarian Party for that matter).

I do hope that he pulls this out but I have no doubt that he will be a king for Conservatives in the future.

all these results in VA, WI, FL, OH do not add up nor does Mia Love in UT.
Seems the left took her out early as they knew a young black conservative woman wuld be a threat to them.

The COL should be as you said plus Broward and Dade always wait till other counties report in thus they then know how many votes they need plus they gave out ballots to people in line outsdie withut checking ID’s and we have no way of knowing who voted in those two Dem counties.
Then once they filled those ballots in they could drop them off or mail them in..WTF

This is 3rd world elections but Ig uess that is what the left wants

Here’s my take on voter fraud. IT HAPPENS. The only way to stop it is to go to a finger scanning, ID card checking method of casting ballots. That way no matter where you are in the states, you can scan your finger, show your id and then vote. The technology is there, hell, Disney uses it so people can’t loan their annual passes to other people. So if Disney can use it, so could our pathetic voting process where, sorry about this, but grandma and gramdpas take forever to find your name and there is nothing from preventing someone from taking your voting card or signing on the wrong line. We have to come up with a sure fire way to cast a valid-fool-proof-ballot.

Praying for Col West. I heard a caller on Glenn Beck this morning say he's been working on this re-count and they've witnessed "Quality Control" officials marking ballots. The Blaze was going to look into it, so maybe this article stems from that caller's experience.

We need Col West in Congress!!

Military votes were not counted because they were 1 day late in arriving would have put Romney as the winner in some swing states. Now, if the people who were affected by hurricane sandy got extra time to have their ballots counted - why not our military?

The vote is not certified until December 17th so there is time to contact our Senators and Congress men to demand these votes be counted!

Next election the Republican Party ought to have a standing reward of $100,000 for information that leads to the exposure of Democratic Party vote fraud schemes.Just publishing the details on a web site would put a crimp in them. ( Forget about the Holder justice dept. prosecuting anyone.) Even if they paid out $20,000,000 it would have had much more effect than $20,000,000 worth of ads or robocalls.

The other problem in voter fraud lies in WHAT UNION BACKED (SOROS FUNDED) group is calibrating those touch screen ballots? You see where there could easily be fraud and WE’D NEVER KNOW IT>... Does anyone know which states have touch screens and which union (there is one in NV that was backed by SOROS) calibrates the machines?

all the polls had Romney up even Dems had FL going for Romney ,. I saw the lines and stcikers and signs and talked to folks and trust me he did not win this state and then there is others out in WI, OH , VA which are saying the same.

4 years of Chicago style getting ready for the elections knowing they had to win and I see these results and I have many questions as many of these results do not add up

I agree. I think early voting is total BS, except in cases of the infirm or elderly. Allowing anyone to vote when they want is ridiculous. It is the most precious right that we hold. If you can't find a way to make it to the ballot box on the first Tuesday following the first Monday in November, then tough crap. I know the arguments, I too travel for work, but I make damn sure I'm home on election day. Early voting allows someone to be in possession of ballots for an indefinite period of time and that is an invitation for fraud.

Mandatory ID, only citizens on the voter rolls and no early voting is the only way to regain legitimacy in our election process.

look at my profile if you get a chance as there are results which are not adding up.

No way in hell this state went for obama, no way and now I;ve seen WI,VA, OH and how votes for obama is down but union votes up in OH by 5%.
WI had people coming in from IL to vote
FL was a lost cause obama got days before the election less than 5000 and yet he is supposed to have onw that area.

If the COL wins then there should be in investigation by the AG, as there shoud in those other states and Mia Loves race in UT

It was despicable that a GOP controlled Florida tried to get Allen West defeated. Those who did the redistricting should forcibly have their affiliation revoked.

They are worse then RINOs they are Communist Democrats in disguise.

This is going to end up as Bush 2000 if he wins. Remember there was an 8-1 ratio in monetary support for Murphy, those same people who funded him are not going to sit on their duffs and accept a loss. Its going to ping pong back and forth and end up decided by a mysterious box of lost ballots that were in the trunk of someone from the DNC.

“...Ballot printing errors led to ballots that could not be fed through scanners in some areas...”

Were odd sized ballots given mostly to Repub. voters? Also, I understand many of the voting machines/scanners were the old Venezuelan/Smartmatic/Diebold type, which can be hacked.

the video is not up now but the media went ot the places of some of these voters and all for obama and all played dumb or denied it.

Surely we have a group which can get the votes and cross them off on hwo they are and their address.

Now this year a NY paper finds more Dems from there are voting in this state,
Trust me this state is republican if it were not for the rigged elections

That site turns out to be a satire site so that story didn’t really happen.

But there are a bunch of military ballots that are missing and won’t ever be counted. Not sure how many or in what states.

There is no way there were fewer people voting for Romney or against Obama than there were voting for McCain. Did they dump conservative strong holds across the country?

It would be a heck of a lot easier to do this in strong Republican counties than in a hotly contested county as the scrutiny would not be there as much in the Republican counties. Reduce the total count in very strong Republican counties and viola!!! Just a thought.

VA and here FL

VA had military votes split evenly which is unheard of and why only one state?
FL has not counted all our military I think and shoudl help the COL in his recount

The media needs to shut up about who wins and stop trying to beat other outlets.
The media needs to investigate this and the GOP needs to recount all votes in WI,,VA, FL, OH as those state plus Mia Loves race does not add up

You are correct about Stalin.

Just finished reading The Case of the Missing White Voters By Sean Trende over on RCP. Basically, as he posits, we are somehow missing 5 million white folks from the total vote over 2008. He uses exit polling data, which is sketchy at best, and also arrives at the conclusion all other categories rose slightly.

If I were king for a day, I’d have all the votes in swing states recounted starting tomorrow. As far as I know, only one FLA district has needed to recount.

The whole result seems very odd to me. But, I’m a conservative and I see dead people (and illegals) voting, everywhere. There’s no proof, they always say. Well, voter fraud isn’t done with the intention of leaving a big fat trail behind when there is no re-validation of the counts performed.
