EDITORIAL: Florida’s tainted vote
The Washington Times ^ | November 9, 2012 | Editorial

Posted on 11/09/2012 5:24:39 PM PST by jazusamo

Election shenanigans surface in Allen West’s congressional race

Florida just can’t seem to count votes properly. After the embarrassing “hanging chad” debacle of the 2000 presidential election, similar games are now being played in the contest between Republican Rep. Allen West and Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy over the 18th Congressional District seat. Mr. Murphy claims 160,328 votes to Mr. West’s 157,872, but the GOP is questioning the integrity of the vote count, particularly in St. Lucie County.

On election night, Mr. West had maintained a district-wide lead of nearly 2,000 votes until the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections inexplicably “recounted” thousands of early ballots, resulting in an awfully convenient 4,400-vote shift in favor of the challenger. Observers on the scene charged incompetence, intimidation and possible fraud on the part of local election officials. Mr. West has asked a judge to impound the ballots and order a recount to set things straight.

Lawyers for the West campaign have been overseeing the process at the Riviera Beach vote tabulation center, and they told The Washington Times that they’re concerned about what they have been seeing. Temporary workers are helping the local staff oversee the count of absentee ballots, those damaged by voting machines and ballots in which the three pages have become separated. They are making new ballots to replace the damaged ones, and are required to mark them with the same votes. Florida law allows observers to be present during this process, however, election officials are effectively denying poll watchers an opportunity to keep tabs on what’s going on.

As Mr. West is facing this level of blatant election fraud ...
I wonder if Mr. Romney might want to reconsider his concession speach?

May justice prevail!

We are doomed if not one person in the US has standing to challenge an election.

Or challenge a potentially ineligible occupant of the White House.

“I wonder if Mr. Romney might want to reconsider his concession speach? “

Thank you!

Sadly, I only see the fraud numbers and incidents detailed on a couple of web sites, but this drip, drip, drip of fraud appears to be massive in its scope.

This could be the crime of all time in our midst!

The GOP will never solve the problem of voter fraud. This should be a national movement by the party, but they are too gutless to confront. Plus as long as some of the candidates are TEA party members they would rather let them loose rather than fighting for them. The GOP is still unfriendly to the TEA party and conservatives in general.

It's the way Obama and his thugs do it, they don't give a whit that everyone knows it.

You're finally catching on to something I warned people about once Obozo became the candidate back in 2008.

This is Chicago politics playing on the national stage.

They spit in your face and dare you to do ANYTHING.

I KNOW... I grew up in Illinois and still have many relatives in Chicago and the suburbs. I moved away in 1980 and know beyond a shadow of a doubt that it was the BEST move I ever made.

In addition to Palm Beach county being screwed up by election supervisor Theresa LaPore, Jeb Bush had to relieve the Broward County supervisor of elections Miriam Oliphant.

South Florida Democrats are as corrupt as they come.

Lacrew, you can by looking up Rebecca Mercuri. You will find her website and many of her papers on electronic voting at notablesoftware.com. There is an organization called verifiablevoting.org which I followed for a while. I will take another look. I became impatient because they dealt with many of the details of what I have presumed was a fatally flawed system. They may have been taking the practical approach that their chances of eliminating voting machines was slim, enhancing the likelihood of identifying might be more productive than trying to reform the whole system. Do look at their site, verfiablevoting.org.

There was also a Stanford engineering professor who published lots of papers on vote fraud. I don't recall his name at the moment, and don't see it, so try Professor David Dill at Stanford. He is much involved with the risk of electronic voting and probably keeps an extensive list of references. Try Bing or Google (Google’s involvement in the Arab Winter and the scrubbing of Supreme Court cases has caused me to avoid them when I can).

Mercuri’s publishing seems suddenly to have died out about five years ago. One can wonder why, but it may be that so few understand or believe that our systems are as flawed as they are that she can't afford the time. Remember, even if you aren't an electrical or electronic engineer, that simplicity is the key. Once voting systems involve DNA checking or voice recognition (DRE) or generate reports of probabilities based upon a variety of warnings, they are anything but transparent. Paper ballots placed in a locked box by the voter, in the presence of a half dozen or more precinct workers is about as secure is one can make it. The box is only opened with everyone present, and everyone is present during the count. Each counted ballot is placed into the archival storage box, never to be handled unless by court orders. That is simplicity and transparency which might have resulted in different results for a number of elections, certainly including this one.

Here’s a good link to view more on voter fraud:

https://www.facebook.com/TrueTheVote

Give the number crunchers time to look at final counts and anomalies. This was in your face stealing of an election. As such, it will be harder to hide. First was shock because the outcome absolutely didn’t jive with Obama’s poor performance as president. All these huge Obama votes were coming at the end of the day. Pray. Ask God to shine the light on truth. Pray some more.

I shouldn’t say this, but I’ve got such a strong feeling that something is going to break big on this in the next few weeks. One thing they did for sure is vote in other people’s names. The real voter then had to sign a provisional ballot which would not have been counted yet. If the voter didn’t show up then they get a cheat vote and if the real voter did show up they were told they had already voted. Let’s just let more information come out.

Many Obama voter’s bragged about voting several times. Maybe the FBI should do their job and track these people down like the Secret Service did to anyone that said Boo! about Obama on the internet. I think they had to cheat in such large numbers that it will be their undoing. Give this a few weeks. :) Remember, the unions got lots of our tax dollars to help perpetrate this fraud. Let’s not let them get away with it!

You are correct. This fraud info is dribbling out. I wish the dam would break. There is not much time.

This fraud was massive.

I pray The Lord shines His light on what has happened here.

This election was stolen.

The guy would not say fraud, but that is fraud.”

BREAKING: St. Lucie County, Florida Had 141.1% Turnout; Obama Won County
http://www.ihatethemedia.com/breaking-st-lucie-county-florida-had-1411-turnout-obama-won-county

Between St. Lucie and Broward Counties, we have a pretty good idea what happened in Florida. Normal voting is what, 50% turnout? It doesn’t take many counties like this to affect an entire state by multiple percentage points.

All of these numbers between 99% (Pennsylvania) and 141.1% (Florida) turnout in dozens of counties in swing states makes me think Team Obama was panicking a lot just before the election, with Mitt up by 7% in certain early voting polls. They overcompensated so much the fraud is impossible to hide. I think they know it, which may be one reason Axelrod is stepping down. (Sound familiar Petraeus and Benghazi?)

As I told someone earlier today, this is who Obama is. This is who Chicago (the machine) is. Do we really want this to be who America is? Is this how we will define our elections from 2008 on? As Mitt says, “America can do better.” We must do better. We can’t let the message be out there that America will let this fraud go.

Want to do something about all of this? Tiffany Banks and Darin Southam forwarded me a list of people you can contact who are in the November 9, 2012 3:12 PM comment below.

Did you know voters can request a recount in certain states? (Ohio, Virginia, Florida, Wisconsin!) Take a look at the comment by @RightonMainSt dated November 9, 2012 11:45 PM below for instructions! Mitt will have to ask in Colorado himself. (Yes, you Mitt!)

It has also been suggested that we ask Republican Secretaries of State NOT to certify the election until all questions about voter fraud are abated. Some people think this may provoke a crisis, but it can’t be worse than the one we are looking at for the next four years and the impact on generations to come! America NEEDS Mitt, and Mitt won fair and square. This was not a ballot stuffing competition but an election. Let’s make sure it’s counted that way!

Thank you all. Over 7,500 people have visited this page in the first 24 hours and I hope millions will see it eventually. Please pass it on! We can do this! (Yes we can!)

And also ...

8) Remove all early voting, countrywide.

9) Use the purple finger voter marking technique.

You have to win an election before you can make these changes. There is some doubt that will ever happen again.

How many college students are there in the USA???

How many live on campus—away from their family home???

How many are voting in person at the campus & voting absentee at the family home address??? Double voting.

Obama has these kids eating out of his hand. They have few morals or ethics. They think it’s OK to cheat to get what they want when they want it.

The part they haven’t figured out yet is that THEY will be the ones paying off this debt for all of their lives.
