Skip to comments.Murphy camp declares victory due to missed deadline
Posted on 11/18/2012 9:21:57 AM PST by Nachum
Update: Campaign officials for Patrick Murphy, Democrat candidate for the congressional district 18 race, are calling their candidate the winner because the St. Lucie Canvassing Board has missed the noon deadline to certify results to the state Division of Elections.
Under Florida law, if the deadline passes with final certified results, the unofficial certified results filed last Sunday stand. Those results show Murphy ahead by .58 percent above the .5 percent spread which would trigger an automatic recount.
West officials were not immediately available for comment.
The St. Lucie County Canvassing Board resumed ballot counting this morning in the tight congressional race between Republican Rep. Allen West and Democrat Patrick Murphy under the watchful eyes of dozens of attorneys and supporter of both candidates.
anvassing board member Tod Lowery, who regularly updates the audience on the process, explained that the board still had write-in ballots and other questionable ballots from 8 days of early voting to review before the noon deadline for the states 67 supervisors of elections to submit their final, certified tallies to the state Division of Elections.
Last Sunday, the canvassing board agree to recount ballots cast the last three days of early voting after election officials revealed that machines had been unable to read some of the electronic memory cartridges. Wests attorneys then sought a recount of all early ballots after the elections office admitted double-counting some ballots and ignoring others on election night.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
We’re all communists now. Saddam Hussein would be so proud of this “election”.
I would have my lawyers demand extra time because they took the night off....
For what it’s worth....
Then, Col West’s campaign should come out and claim the same thing. West wins, due to deadline being missed. Bonehead should seat him. This has gone beyond ridiculous. Time for a complete recount, NOW!
Murphy is a dirtbag.
What a (sarcastic) surprise? Gee, wonder why they quit last night? (rhetorical) Banana Republic of St. Lucie County Elections.
So the recounters knocked off overnight. Didn’t restart early enough to finish. And it all goes for naught?
You have got to be kidding! :-/
Recount must have been in Wests favor?
I have no doubt West won this race. Murphy knows and pulled this stunt.
according to his fan-facebook, they are still behind closed doors and one precinct had 7 registered voters, but 900 vote tally?
When things were shut down last night because “the alarm is automatic” the fix was in. It appears that the sheriff’s dept. may be part of it.
Now they can’t read one of the cards.
“.....one precinct had 7 registered voters, but 900 vote tally”
Have a link for that?
“one precinct had 7 registered voters, but 900 vote tally”
There would be no way I would sign my name to any ‘certification’ that included that disparity. Someone would end up killing me dead.
Emergency hearing next (?) about the delay/stall tactic in Courthouse.
This kind of vote-tampering and suppression should NEVER occur. What a disgrace this Elections Board is.
A little file I have working on:
Obama Voter Fraud
No, I wouldn’t either. Apparently Dems don’t care about the sanctity of the vote. This reads like a dictator election.
What is the website again for sending West a recount contribution?
They are playing games. He may lose, but at least West is standing up to the massive voter fraud in our country.
I want to see the Republican House start voting to reform voter fraud. We can all it the Allen West bill.
That has to be getting huge by now.
Any links? please!!
Communists in America will always elect communists Democrats. America is finished as a inspired Constitutional land.
Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history... the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom Lucifer.
can you confirm this?
“He may lose”
I wouldn’t surrender, if I were he. If this is what’s called an election, and a ‘recount,’ I would not concede.
Not according to this report listing of precinct by precinct. See Page 2.
Ain't gonna happen because Bonehead would rather a dem hold the seat than West. But we all know that--preaching to the choir here.
Allen West Republic

#AllenWestRecount - A Pct had - 7 registered voters in Guatemalan community and the tally showed 900 voted!!!!! - THIS IS NOT OFFICIAL YET - The commissioner has NOT announced ANYONE the winner or the numbers yet. They are STILL behind closed doors
“I want to see the Republican House start voting to reform voter fraud. We can all it the Allen West bill.”
Good luck with that! Most are afraid of the democratic machine!
I’m afraid too many conservatives are now addicted to early and easy voting for us to ever see any real reform.
Some FB accounts are open (public). I have no idea whether this one is or not.
Just so you know, Google jumped in and said your page is a reported attack page.
If they now throw the St Lucie votes out because of a missed deadline, then Allen West will win by 10,000 votes or more as he leads by that much in the other two adjoining counties.
They truly are mindless --
Clicked on your link and got a message that it contains malware - fyi
It’s going to take the National Guard stationed in polling locations and vote tabulation sites in every state from start of early voting to the final certifications to reduce ‘RAT fraud. Target of course the urban areas and nearby suburbs where the ‘RATs fester and breed.
Yeah, and I am Empress of Russia.
I can’t find what they are talking about, BUT, ignoring that, the shut down last night, restart this morning and then the claim that they ran out of time is at best really SUSPECT.
(like anyone except the most gullible would believe the time excuse)
ColdOne: “Murphy knows and pulled this stunt.”
Murphy may or may not be involved, but something is definitely fishy in St. Lucie. Unfortunately, I don’t know what can be done about the fraud when the fraudsters are in control.
The Republicans, if they were smart (fat chance), they'd be collecting evidence of vote fraud this election to take to the supreme court in favor of voter ID and registration corrections. Every fraudulent vote denies a legal voter their Constitutional right to a free and fair election.
This election gives the Republicans all the voter fraud evidence they need. All they have to do is gather it. There's definitely no shortage of it. This time the fraud is right out in the open.
That 141% final average is pretty impressive though.
To a leftist, the only sanctity in voting, is the sanctity of winning itself. All else is trivial and malleable.
With two cards per voter that is only a 70% turnout.
does that to me, too, when I use google chrome; not with internet explorer, though
