Posted on 11/16/2012 6:41:44 PM PST by smoothsailing
The St. Lucie County Canvassing Board has ordered the retabulation of all early votes in the highly contested congressional race between Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) and Democrat Patrick Murphy, according to Jeffrey Scott Shapiro, a volunteer lawyer for the West campaign. The board voted 2-1 in favor of recounting the votes.
This retabulation of all early votes as the Supervisor of Elections originally planned is a victory for democracy, Shapiro told TheBlaze. This restores some level of trust and public confidence in the system it was the right thing to do.
Election officials will begin retabulating the roughly 20,000 additional early votes at 9 a.m. on Saturday, he said.
West needs to gain just 249 votes in those 20,000 ballots to trigger a statutory recount under state law, Shapiro told TheBlaze. West gained 535 votes in the initial recount of 16,275 ballots. Both candidates combined lost 800 votes, however, 80 percent of the decrease was owned by Murphy.

Good news, thanks.
Never give up.
>> OF ALL EARLY VOTES
Is that sufficient?
The Dems must feel confident they’ve manufactured plenty enough votes in the meantime to emerge victorious.
In the new count, West loses by 75% to 24%
There is no way in hell that punk got more votes than colonel West. If he did, this country is in even more trouble than most of us think.
I pray West wins!!!
But will this continue?
The other story said a “judge” - appointed by which party? - denied West’s case.
The judge left it up the Canvassing Board because he did not have the authority to demand a recount beyond the requirements of State law.
It may put West in the lead.
It may put it within .5% which would trigger and election wide recount.
Go Wast go!
Hoping some indictments of the fraud come out as well. One election like this could result in much needed security for our elections.
Here we go!
Didn’t I read 140% of registered voters cast a ballot in this county?
Do you know if they are mostly military ballots?
Needs to be a national recount.
Prayers up for Colonel West.
A 2-1 vote? Who’s the turd who voted no?
