West Loses… Won’t Concede

If there was as much funny business as it’s been said there was, I wouldn’t concede either.

With all provisional and absentee votes counted in the 18th District, Congressman West currently trails by roughly 2,400 votes, a margin outside of the threshold for an automatic recount. The race remains undecided because there are issues that still need to be resolved in St. Lucie County. Late on Election Night, Congressman West led by 1,700 votes. Following the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections’ decision to recount thousands of early ballots after a technical glitch, the margin shifted by 4,000. In order to ensure that votes were not doubled counted, we have requested that the St. Lucie Supervisor of Elections make public the poll check-in books to ensure the numbers of ballots cast matches the numbers of voters checked-in at the polls. Once that information is provided we believe the outcome of the election will be clear. It is troubling that days later that information is still not available. Our sole focus is ensuring all ballots were counted fairly and accurately.

Go West.

    West is correct about  Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. She is vile and despicable. Pay close attention to what she says. She believes “minorities” [meaning blacks] are too stupid to take care of themselves.

    then i followed the link.

    there’s a bastion of objectivity.
    WTF
    then i continued to read:

    He has elevated his profile with a seemingly unending string of headline-grabbing statements, from calling scores of congressional Democrats communists to labeling Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz as “vile” and “despicable.” He said President Barack Obama, Rep. Nancy Pelosi and others should “get the hell out of the United States.”

    how would those truthful comments elevate col. west’s profile? do they not recognize the truth when they hear it? remainder of comment deleted by commenter because said commenter would not exhibit the class col. west did in his comments.

    I sure hope that Allen West wins this one- what a travesty to put that moron Grayson back in office. He is an embarassment to the whole human race, making even some of the worst liberals look bad!

    “Isn’t it funny how recounts (however painful) always seem to favor the Republican?”

    It didn’t for Norm Coleman in 2008 vs Al Franken for the Minnesota senate seat. That was key. If Coleman won, Obamacare would have been stopped dead in its tracks.

      AH! But, that recount was the paradigmic “Oh, look!  We just found 10,000″ uncounted “ballots” that had been “misplaced” in the truck of a Democrat official. And will you look at that, they’re for the Democrat!” that JP Kalishek mentions.

  • JP Kalishek

    well, if the recount is accurate they seem to favor Repubs. In DFL land (Minnesota) they always seem to favor the Dem…”Oh look! We found 10,000 more ballots over here in someones car trunk” and lo, they all seem to be marked for the dem

    Here is a link to a PDF of the Saint Lucie County election results.  I’ve only looked at the first two pages, but it seems to report a voter turnout of OVER 100% in every one of the 94 jurisdictions except for one, resulting in an average turnout of 141.10%.

    I’ve never reviewed elections reports before, but I am mystified by these results.  If something is so off here, what must be going on in the OTHER counties in Florida?  And by extension, what about the rest of the country?

    I have never been one to engage in conspiracy theories, and I acknowledge my personal grief over Tuesday’s results leaves me looking for answers, but WTF is going on?

    • http://iliocentrism.blogspot.com/ Ilion

      What’s going on is Democratic Party same-old same-old.  They’ve just been becoming more open about it since the Nixon-Kennedy race.

      • RoseRRR

        Am I just being hopelessly naive when I see that the election officials are OPENLY REPORTING to the public that over 141% of voters cast ballots and wonder why no one at the local, state, or national level is even raising an eyebrow?

        Am I just a goofball to wonder why no Republicans except  Lt Col West are pursuing this?

        Am I a frickin’ idiot to not accept that the same Republican party that “took care” of West in the re-districting process are “taking care” of him now?

        This stinks, and the stench reaches beyond the Democrat party . . . .

          While there are many good Republicans, especially the voters, the people who control the Republican Party are just Democrats-painted-red (to use the color that the “liberals” have assigened to us).

          The mover-and-shakers in the Republican Party will never actually oppose the nationally-suicidal policies that the Democrats push.  Both the Democrats and the Establishment Republican are puppets of the leftists, and it is impossible for a puppet to act against its puppet-master.

    Nancy Pelosi gave us a hint early on. When I heard this I knew she wasn’t just talking about Gingrich. Could it be she knew no republican would be elected?           .http://youtu.be/zu6ibVy0FPM
