Rep. Allen West won a full recount of early voting in St. Lucie County when the county’s canvassing board voted late Friday to grant his request.

Local news accounts said the decision came in a 2-1 vote.

After last weeks’ election Mr. West, a one-term congressman and tea party favorite, trails Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy by about 1,900 votes, or just outside the margin needed for an automatic recount.

From link. He later explained the 306 ballots that had not yet been counted were ballots that contained one or more write-in choices. All these ballots were cast on Nov. 1-3, the days which had been recounted last Sunday.

And these ballots were found to be in Walker's office.

It is very easy to fill in an oval to make an over-vote that would invalidate the original vote.

Patrick Murphy sounds like white Irish to me so how come the rats don’t consider Murphy’s objection to a recount racism?
