Skip to comments.The Col. West Recount: Any updates?
Posted on 11/11/2012 8:21:18 AM PST by TigerClaws
The recount started at 7 am this morning.
Any word how it's going? Was only for one county.
the question we must all ask is where is the GOP to stand with Col. West?
Best updates are on the Allen West Republic Facebook page:
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?
“the question we must all ask is where is the GOP to stand with Col. West”
-—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 Thursdays 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.
Amen to that TracySC
Electronic voting machines MUST be banned. This is absurd. Paper, paper and more paper.
Wherever you are getting the info...Keep it up and inform us!
(re; Col West)
I had read this...I am so afraid of missing something that double information sources is good this time...
Be sure to post anything you see!!!
Need to post this to FR:
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.
Electronic voting machines MUST be banned.
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.
I like my paper and pen vote.
BizPac Review has a reporter on site and will be providing updates when possible.
Sorry, here’s the actual link for BizPac Review:
Hold the election over again. Simple, no?
Another question: Where is the Tea Party? Have they been vocal or assisting West with this recount? If not, thats a major slap in the face...not to just West, but all of us.
Until we start shooting these people in the head, this crap will continue
This story inside our link re military voters. That verified?
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.
Ms. Walker is now known to me as the Official “Stupidvisor of Elections” for St. Lucie County.
Once the demholes steal an election...it’s impossible to take it back. I’ve changed my retirement plans from Florida to Arizona.
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.
Ohhh, thank you! And... o.m.g.
A MANDATORY COMBINATION OF STATE/FEDERAL VOTER ID CARD AND RETINAL SCANNERS AND NO ONE CAN CHEAT! It can be done because anyone with a security clearance uses them daily.
the question we must all ask is where is the GOP to stand with Col. West
The GOP is sitting on the bench...see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil...
GOP says...who is Allen West, he is not one of us.
If there has been fraud going on, and today looks like a great example of fraud and/or massive competence by the Elections Dept., how to you combat that? (given the demographics?)
darn 7” tablet, my fingers, and brain!
good Lord, the Stupidvisor of Elections has a 12 noon deadline with all that BS going on? this woman NEEDS to lose her job. quickly.
UPDATE: Gary Angelo Galiano - Now they’re saying there’s three minutes to the 12 o’clock deadline what next. Currently in the press room results any minute.
Nothing ... he has RINO Pam Bondi as the state attorney General and she is a leftist statist
give us specifics about what you mean? ranted and raved about what? what did his office chief do or say?? expand please.
Dumb blonde, RINO Romney stooge from day one.
Saw this Twitter:
jmartpolitico RT @gbennettpost: St. Lucie partial recount shows both Murphy and West losing votes; canvassing board OKs results.
Madam Elections Stupidvisor Walker, soon to be in the Obama Administration, DOJ Voter Rights Division. (wish i was being sarcastic)
I’m not aware of a ping list. I’m just catching up on this today. Looks like Col. West is fed up with the SOE Gertrude Walker....
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.
