Palm Beach Post ^ | Friday, Nov. 9, 2012 | Palm Beach Post Staff Writer

Posted on 11/09/2012 10:17:39 AM PST by LeoWindhorse

Judge [Jim] Crow denies Allen West's motion in Palm Beach County. He says West motion is "premature" since no the election has no official results yet; also says the legislature, not courts, sets election procedures.

A Palm Beach County circuit court hearing on Republican U.S. Rep. Allen West’s motion to impound ballots and voting machines is scheduled for noon today.[snip] West filed a similar motion in St. Lucie County.

Is it any wonder as to the intent when the Florida REPUBLICAN legislature re-drew his district? He wasn’t toeing the line and had to be “dealt with.”

You can ONLY change the rules of an election, after it happens, IF YOU ARE A DEMOCRAT.

Just ask the Florida Supreme Court.

He... the judge... also says the legislature, not courts, sets election procedures.

Hilarious coming from a jurist in the state that thought they could waive "election procedures" and keep the vote count going until Gore finally caught up and passed Bush in 2000.

The law says whatever these bastards say it is. Welcome to the third world.

but the public here was not even smart enough to remove three of those perps when they had a chance to do so on Tuesday.

We are getting closer to trigger pull voting soon I fear.

Nice to see Allen West is a fighter and not a conceeder...

The Dims can always count on our “Mr. Nice Guy Virtue”, because most of the republican party are fools!

In fact the only thing the Dems can count on these days besides their monthly check is the “Misapplied Virtue” of the Republican party....

They will continue to use it against us at every step and will continue to mock us BECAUSE OF IT because if they continue to goad us about our virtue we then become defensive and try to double down on our misappropriated virtue and they continue to take advantage of it....

I am so happy Allen West is fighting back!!!!

He is a fighter and we need more Alan Wests, we need less Bohners!

What is the issue with Palm beach? How come they cannot get an election done with all of this BS? Is it the voting process or are the people simply stupid? So many town in the country can get this stuff done in hours...and count them again in a couple of days.

Is there someone out there that can explain it to us?

agreed, just over 7 million votes cast over the judges and we coudl have got rid of the 3 of them and this state did not.

Judges, the left , the media have ruined this contry but like Karl Marx said.

we cannot have the world take our agenda by force we have to get into positions of power and influence.
Well they did that.

judges
teachers
lawyers
media
and elected officials

When you have that you can rig elections and don;t think for one minute now that the left will not do this again in two and 4 years.
Once they rig the elections they get power and it makes it easier to keep doing this and ensuring their power whilst the sheep who never ask questions or say anything will think we live in a free and fair country

From the article linked...

...Judge David Crow said the West campaign’s motion was “premature” because official results have not yet been posted.

His WPB office said (this morning) that they’re getting lots of hate calls. I told them to hang in there...that the other side sure demands their recounts. The staffer said that’s what they’re telling the rude callers.

yes the 3 counties in the south east of this state are Dems and every election they wait to see what the other counties report and then they report last. That way they know how many votes they need to steal the election.

Remember those counties are all liberal, union northerners , blacks and hispanics and so are very much for big Govt

They do not want to count knowing right now not all absentee and military votes have not been counted , if they do report and the absentee and military comes in later it might give the state to Romney and no way do the left want that

Trust me up here many of us wish those 3 counties would form their own state or just leave the country

"What is the issue with Palm beach? ... Is it the voting process or are the people simply stupid?"

Yes.

I've been here for about 4 months taking care of my late mother's estate. There are a lot of "snow birds", probably vote multiple times, lots of retirees, so plenty of dead people to vote, the schools are a mess, low wages, high costs, no industry outside of health care or hospitality, a bastion of corruption and liberalism.

we have a saying here in NE FL

The south part of the state is the north and the north part of the state is the south.

People in those 3 counties are rude, ignorant, the place is a crap home, they cheat, they steal and rig elections.

Sounds like 25,000 votes and the military absentees haven’t been counted yet.

The other guy could be the one going to court yet...

Considering what we have seen in Philadelphia and Cincinnati, I would suspect that there is over voting taking place, where more votes are cast that there are registered voters, giving the Democrats almost 100% of the vote plus whatever is cast for the Republican candidates.

I’m trying to get a handle on that myself.

Seems to me as if legislatures set election laws, and if it appears that irreparable harm is or will be taking place because of the violation of those laws that courts are where you go to get someone to step in and halt it.

VERY COOL: “Observers at the tabulation center included members of the Enforcers motorcycle club, whose numbers include many veterans and police officers. They said the results could swing in West’s favor when overseas military ballots are counted. West, an Army veteran, has considerable support among military voters.”

“They said the results could swing in West’s favor when overseas military ballots are counted.”

Hopefully these votes haven’t mysteriously disappeared.

I mailed an absentee ballot to Escambia in 2000 and later read that some ballots had been discovered in the post office trash.

I've seen this movie before.

Judge tells candidate that now is not the time for his suit, that he has to wait for the counting and certification. Later, when the counting and certifying is done the courts say that it's too late and the candidate should have challenged the counting before certifying.

"Official" when is it "official"? Does this jive with the Bush/Gore 2000 Florida recount that the courts supervised and determined?

His campaign office said they're in the process of updating his campaign website with recount info/updates. They've removed the "donate" button, temporarily and will get that back on, ASAP.

In the meantime, donations can be mailed to the following:

Allen West for Congress
735 S. Colorado Ave, Ste. 9
Stewart, FL 34994
Payable to: Allen West for Congress Re-count Fund

Many thanks to all.

I was upset that they weren’t removed. But most people don’t know a thing about the judges, don’t vote one way or the other, and therefore the Dem machine gets them reelected time and again.

I live in North Floritda and I was a poll watcher. I was stunned by how many people - this precinct is 85% registered GOP, with many coming in from the country to vote here in town - had to accept statements saying they didn’t vote on the second page, which had the amendments ( two of which were specifically aimed at protecting Christians - and lost) and that they had left some blank spaces on the first page. These would probably be the really minor candidates for things such as the Mosquito Control Board...and the judges.

We conservatives have to do better voter education.

I didn't know the make up of the county. I have vacationed at Singer Island, and I know the area we drove through to get there was a little rough. But generally when you think about Palm beach, you think mansions and the guy from Monopoly.

Thanks for posting the number. I just called and let the lady that answered the phone know that there are many, many Americans from all over the country that are standing behind the Colonel and support his fighting this election theft as long and as far as he can. She seemed genuinely pleased and promised to pass the sentiment along to the Congressman.
