Murphy camp declares victory due to missed deadline
Palm Beach Post ^ | 11/18/12 | Christine Stapleton

Posted on 11/18/2012 9:21:57 AM PST by Nachum

Fort Pierce —

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 state’s 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. West’s attorneys then sought a recount of all early ballots after the elections office admitted double-counting some ballots and ignoring others on election night.

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!

So the recounters knocked off overnight. Didn’t restart early enough to finish. And it all goes for naught?

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.

There would be no way I would sign my name to any ‘certification’ that included that disparity. Someone would end up killing me dead.

No, I wouldn’t either. Apparently Dems don’t care about the sanctity of the vote. This reads like a dictator election.

I was waiting to see if he would get an automatic recount.

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.

“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.

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.

Who are they kidding???

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 --

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.

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.

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.

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.

I agree. Fraud is so common in some places that it happens with little conscious thought. Its become an inner city entitlement.
