the county election supervisor appears to be defying my understanding of well settled law in Gore v. Bush and has begun to cherry pick the recount of just certain ballots

the question we must all ask is where is the GOP to stand with Col. West?

I just checked the county site. Nada. I did laugh though when I saw in their 70% County turnout rate, the number of BLANK votes for the Elections Chief was 5%. lol One would think at least on the Main FED, STATE, and County Elections, voters would care.

Did the 5% that didn’t vote on that race at all just: focus on Barry? not care whom counts their votes? not even know what the Elections department was? status quo?

-—They are to busy selling us down the drain to care about West — obviously.

smoothsailing, do you have a ping list for Col West’s recount? I would imagine by the time they do the swearing in, argue over who is qualified to represent whom, etc., then actually start counting, it’ll be well into the day before we hear anything.

It’s not likely we’d hear anything until they are finished with the early votes which I understand is all that is being recounted at this point. When I was one of the GOP agents authorized to observe the count at day’s end, anyone in the room was locked in there until the count was done, certified, called into the county and/or state electoral board, and ready to post publicly. No one who wasn’t authorized could either enter or leave during that period. But that was then and this is now, and we are a wholly new Third World country!

Uh oh, according to the FB link provided by docbulldog,
Ms. Walker, unlike what she posted on the County site, has decided to only count “certain days of early votes”. Can we say cherry pick?

How can she say they are going to count all early votes, then screw off days other than Nov. 1-3?

She’s White House or DOJ material!/s

ST. LUCIE COUNTY SUPERVISOR OF ELECTIONS ATTEMPTS TO STEAL ELECTION

Supervisor of Elections Gertrude Walker clearly runs most corrupt

elections office in the state of Florida

Stuart, FL – Today West for Congress campaign manager Tim Edson released the following statement in response to the sham recount underway in St. Lucie County this morning:
“Late yesterday, the St. Lucie County Board of Elections had agreed to recount all early ballots to address concerns stemming from their acknowledgement of technical errors late on Election Night in the counting of the first three days of early voting, as posted on their website.

However this morning, when observers arrived at the elections office for the 7:00 a.m. recount, they were told by the Supervisor of Elections only the final three days of early voting would be recounted, when in fact the data in question relates to the first three days of voting. During discussions about the recount, the canvassing board repeatedly tried to shoo away observers and prevent them from listening in on discussions. Apparently the have never heard of Florida sunshine laws

When questioned about counting the wrong three days of voting, the Supervisor of Elections and the canvassing board claimed the errors were in fact on the final three days, despite the record from Thursday’s canvassing board meeting showing otherwise. In addition, the Supervisor has said transcripts from the earlier canvassing board meeting will not be released until the day before the votes are certified.

What was originally viewed as dangerous incompetence on the part of Gertrude Walker now appears more and more like a willful attempt to steal the election for Patrick Murphy. Nothing about this story adds up. If there is truly nothing wrong with the data from the first three days of voting, why will it not be released?

West for Congress will pursue every legal means necessary to ensure a fair election, not only to ensure Gertrude Walker is held accountable, but also ultimately replaced, so the citizens of St Lucie County will be ensured fair and accurate elections.”

so far from what i’m scanning off the FB link: plugs have been mysteriously pulled from machines while counting, and now memory cards have failed, plus, Ms. Walker changed her own rules and is leaving out most of early ballots. only counting november 1-3.

leaving the card/ballot numbers aside, if this doesn’t SHOUT INCOMPETENCE OR FRAUD, i don’t know what does?

Boots on the Ground Allen west Update: Gary Angelo Galiano Some more news would you believe that one of the memory cards failed again after the recount now they have to do it again for that one precinct. This is the reason why we are here. !!!!!!!! the memory cards have failed again can’t they just go to Office Depot and buy bigger ones!?!?!?!?!

Actually, Gore v. Bush does not apply. SCOTUS ruled it ap[plied in that case only and is not to be considered precedent or guidance in any other case.

having said that, I too am very interested in updates. Hate to see West lose this one.

And what is the bald wonder, Gov. Scott, going to do about this rampant corruption in his state? In Texas, Attorney General Greg Abbott’s office would be supervising this recount so that the blatant theft of Col. West’s office would be contested.

Early voting was the issue. She decided to try to skip that.

Isn’t the entire county being reviewed?

Arent there signature books? Count the signatures and match them to votes cast.

Obvipushy this will be back in court tomorrow.

Go Col. West, you are in a Battle.
The naysayers will soon be showing up on the threads stating there is no fraud and we are a laughing stock of DU and Kos.

From Madam Elections Chief, on her own site, STILL TODAY, this PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT. (NOTE, THIS SAYS ALL BALLOTS CAST EARLY, not only certain days)

PUBLIC NOTICE OF MEETING

AN EMERGENCY MEETING FOR THE CANVASSING BOARD HAS BEEN SCHEDULED FOR SUNDAY NOVEMBER 11, 2012 AT 7:00 AM AT THE SUPERVISOR OF ELECTIONS OFFICE, 4132 OKEECHOBEE ROAD

THE PURPOSE OF THE MEETING IS TO RECOUNT ALL BALLOTS CAST DURING EARLY VOTING

I hope to God it is. Only early votes (see my post below) were to be counted. She posted on HER ELECTIONS site, per Public Meeting Laws, that ALL early votes were to be recounted. Now, she’s picking days, and employing stalling/cherry picking techniques hoping Col. West will be maligned and quit.

This ought to scare anyone of any political persuasion that perhaps your vote really doesn’t COUNT.

pinging you to this on Col. West’s fight for accurate and fair counts.

the Fraud Crap is really hitting the fan over there now.

despite a public statement on the elections head’s site, instead of counting ALL Early Ballots, only counting a few days. electrical plugs have come out of machines and memory cards messed up.

if this doesn’t scream FRAUD, i don’t know what does. this is certainly worthy of a Court injunction AND Madam Elections Chief has proved herself worthy of a place in the Obama Administration (DOJ Voting Rights perhaps?) last bit sarcasm.

I live down here. Col. West was given every chance you could hope for and had much support but he wanted to rant and rave and he blew his opportunity. Right out of the box he hired a nut as his office chief. He was redistricted and physically moved to a republican part of the county. He can recount till the cows come home but I have a feeling he is going to lose.

OK- In simple terms, here is where we stand:
West complained that the 37000+ “Early” votes had counting problems election night. The Supervisor said they had a faulty memory card on one of the counting machines that failed to upload all the votes. So she re-counted them at 2 am Wednesday. He claimed he was ahead by 2500 votes, and after the recount he was behind by 2000 votes. His concern was/is that some votes were counted twice.
Because of all the controversy and an admitted computer problem, the state stepped up and told the Supervisor to recount those early votes.
She publicly noticed an emergency meeting for 7am today to recount the early votes.
But then she decided only to recount 3 of the 8 days: the final 3 days with approx 16000 votes. West protested, believing all 37000 early votes should be counted.
They finished the count, with more counting problems with memory cards failing, and it showed 799 FEWER votes than originally reported.
Murphy lost 535 votes, West lost 132 votes, lowering the margin of victory to .58%. Threshold for automatic recount is .5% or less.
BUT! If counting only 3 days shows a discrepancy of 799 votes, it strengthens his contention that all 37000 votes should be re-tabulated.
I am fairly certain the state elections officials were there today, and am hopeful they will order a full re-tabulation of all the early votes. If the percentage of error holds, it could further cut the margin to trigger the automatic recount of all votes in all 3 counties in the District.

Florida banned electronic voting machines 6 years ago. All our ballots are paper- fill in the bubble. But they are counted by machines. At first, anyway. With nearly 10 million ballots to count, it has to be mechanized to get results in a reasonable time. But there is a paper trail.

Why do we have to get our results so quickly.

I would make them take a week to count the votes, and then at a certain time, all states one by one would announce their results simultaneously, then you have no idea where you stand and how much you have to cheat to win.
