Race for Florida’s 18th Congressional District Remains Undecided Stuart, FL – Today West for Congress released the following statement regarding the state of the race in Florida’s 18th Congressional District:

“With all provisional and absentee votes counted in the 18th District, Congressman West currently trails by roughly 2,400 votes, a margin outside of the threshold for an automatic recount. The race remains undecided because there are issues that still need to be resolved in St. Lucie County. Late on Election Night, Congressman West led by 1,700 votes. Following the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections’ decision to recount thousands of early ballots after a technical glitch, the margin shifted by 4,000. In order to ensure that votes were not doubled counted, we have requested that the St. Lucie Supervisor of Elections make public the poll check-in books to ensure the numbers of ballots cast matches the numbers of voters checked-in at the polls. Once that information is provided we believe the outcome of the election will be clear. It is troubling that days later that information is still not available. Our sole focus is ensuring all ballots were counted fairly and accurately.”

Did a judge already refuse to let him check this?

I sure hope he can prove that he is the winner.

West is a true hero and terribly needed in national leadership.

With an obama “win” the recount will show a 242% turnout against West.

Good for him. Perhaps the spineless (remember Minn? Al Frankenstein?) Repubs can take a lesson from Col. West.

There is no way he will be allowed the chance to prove it.

The vote fraudster messed up when they madee it too close, the “recount” made sure to clear up the discrepancy.

Now there is no recourse.

Unless they provide evidence that West clearly was legally out-voted I don’t think West should EVER concede. Maybe we have had such a situation before where a candidate never concedes ... not sure

WHOA!!!!

West, a Veteran and many of the ballots are from veterans!

It would be great if a contingent of conservative veterans showed up in silent protest in support of West!

I am sure someone is busy right now in some secret room making sure that everything looks right. Names and signatures can still be added to the books and made to look like they put there on election day. Ballots can be re-created as need be. It can all be fixed.

On election night I was monitoring Drudge, which had a running count of the Florida presidential vote. Romney was leading. All of sudden, following an update, about 35,000 votes were removed from the Romney total. Anybody else see this?

“Now there is no recourse.”

Yes there is. He can take it to the House of Representatives, which is the sole judge of its membership.

The House can (and has in the past) decide whom to admit when there were ballot issues.

Usually the party with the majority decides to admit their fellow party member; but the point is, the House can decide whom to admit.

I didn’t see that. Maybe it is related to the shenanigans in St. Lucie County somehow.

..................

Walker said the ballots in question were from a group of more than 37,000 early votes cast in the race. Most of the early ballots were counted shortly after 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Walker said. But she said some of the ballots were on memory cards that could not initially be uploaded onto tabulating machines. Those ballots were counted later in the evening, she said.

“I don’t have any problem recounting ballots,” said Walker, but she said she’ll have to wait for a judge’s ruling. “If it was my decision, I’d say, ‘Hey, when?’ because I have no problem. But we have to follow the law and the law does not give the (canvassing) board discretion to make a decision to recount.”

http://www.palmbeachpost.com/news/news/local-govt-politics/west-still-fighting-loss-to-murphy-as-palm-beach-c/nSzt2/

......................

And now she’s decided that she will recount those ballots again tomorrow (see post #9) after claiming she has no such authority to do so without a court order. This is the SECOND time she will have recounted the early ballots. The first recount flipped the election by 4,000 votes and gave it to Murphy. Neither time has there been a court order.

I’m not sure I understand what you are saying? The amount of registered voters for that day was 175,554 and they supposedly had 247,713 votes cast which is 141% or over 100% of actual voters listed as registered.

What do you see incorrect?

No — that is incorrect.

If that was the issue don’t you think that Col West would say so in his just released statement.

Instead he is taking direct aim at the source of the fraud — the 4000 votes that were mysteriously discovered after the official count. Read his statement. It says nothing about 141% voter turnout.

Voter turnout in St Lucie was 71% not 141% as hundreds on this site have been misinformed and are misinforming others:

The numbers do not add up to the totals. I checked the one’s columns, since the total % seemed low, given the precinct %s.

The “picture” you posted is not evidence of vote fraud or over-voting. Look at it closely, the percentages are in reference to “cards cast” by registered voters. Each voter was given two cards, each card was for different items on the ballot (for example, card #1 had items 1-10, card #2 had items 11-20) They were not duplicate cards. You couldn’t vote for the same thing twice.

Sadly, without local precinct counts, before the only relevant evidence of voter intent, paper ballots, have disappeared to be counted by SEIU employees, recounts are unlikely to provide conclusive data.

If ballots are counted in each precinct, as they used to be in the US, with overseers of all parties present, and the count made the official one, with ballots locked in bonded storage, it is a small matter to remove votes from the party not in control of the count. With counts, not precincts, reporting ten to forty percent more votes than registered voters, it is now easy to remove the votes the counting party doesn't want counted.

We do not have verifiable voting. Stalin explained the principle long ago. All that matters is who does the counting, and today, in most states, that counting is reported by the SEIU working for state's attorneys general. Political powers removed our secure voting to allow networks to provide real time results, or so they said, over forty years ago. Without verifiable voting we have a dictatorship, and we absolutely do not have verifiable voting. The mechanisms interfering with the full implementation of whatever you want to call it, Communism, socialism, oligarchy, the three branches of government are being and have been subverted by government agencies controlled by the executive. Our judiciary is now a branch of the executive. Federal judges are all political appointees, as are judges in our final appeals court, the Supreme Court, which will shortly have six progressives who are quite open about their preference for a “living Constitution”, and their president who considers the Constitution a historical relic needing a new bill of rights.

Our economy will fail, as Cloward and Piven planned, and as all socialist economies do. We who know have the advantage bacause we know not to depend upon a bankrupt government, and most of us have provided a service of value to other citizens, and can continue to do so, if need be, via the largest markets thriving in the USSR before their collapse, black markets. What allies we had, other than the Saudis, who paid for Barack's Columbia and Harvard education, have been making adjustments for a while. Our society will have to learn what it means to have producers and leeches.

The sad truth is that without verifiable voting, we don't really know what citizens know or believe, so many who did work hard will lose what they produced. The means of determining the will of the people has been subverted so we will have to develop communication outside the purview of the government leeches. The Tea Parties are only one such mechanism.

This writer recalls a brilliant former UN Ambassador name Jeanne Kirkpatrick. She believed that what really brought down the Soviet Union was the advent of network communication available to the intelligentsia - the military. Virtually every institute of higher learning worked for the Soviet Military. To try to keep pace with weapons development and communications required that researchers and military officers communicate. The reality of misery and waste, and the relative wealth of free market societies, was thus known to those who could and did undermine their hated government institutions.

We must organize to destroy our dictatorial government. They have no provable mandate because voting is a joke, controlled by their henchmen. The Unions are a small part of our working society, but embedded in gatekeeper roles in our government bureaucracy. Soros and his fellow travelers are smart people, and invested in a project to subvert secretaries of state years ago. The SEIU works for those skillfully selected secretaries of state. We are all learning the reality of a coup.

Free and fair elections allow for the transition of power without conflict. Now that free and fair elections are an institutio of the past, power will be taken by thioose best equipped to do so.Right now the left have the ability to seize take power regardless of the vote.

One of the elements necessary for civil war is now present.
Disenfranchizement will not lead to anything good.Eventually it will lead to violence and war.

Someone needs to propose a state law saying any precinct with more than 100% votes triggers an automatic recount.

Anyone who votes against that gets reamed before the next election.

That St. Lucie report was total CARDS not total votes. Wuth the high number of referendums, two cards were required to fill out. That is where the total mixup of 141%+ whatever comes in. The actual votes were 71%
