Don’t expect long battle in West recount effort (Update — the next phase of Allen West)

Don’t expect long battle in West recount effort (Update — the next phase of Allen West)

Call it a hunch, call it reading tea leaves, call it whatever you want.

With the partial recount of early ballots in St. Lucie county having increased Patrick Murphy’s lead marginally, there are not many options left to Allen West since he remains outside the automatic recount threshold.

The Shark Tank notes that there was a slight but noticeable change in tone from the West campaign overnight, reflected in this campaign statement:

Since Election Day we have been working for a fair and accurate accounting of the election outcome in which voters can put their full trust. We will review the results of today’s recount and the other available data to determine how to proceed. I have been humbled by the support we have received and the hard work of so many to ensure the integrity of this process.

We look forward to the report which will be issued by the Secretary of State’s auditors this coming week which we hope will shed light on some of the outstanding issues.”

Call it a hunch, call it reading tea leaves, call it whatver you want.

Don’t expect this to go on much longer. 

But there will be Allen West, Part 2, and it will be just as vigorous as ever.

Update: A source close to the West campaign tells Legal Insurrection:

It does look like its over. You would not believe your own eyes if you were here.

We are moving on. Allen is now unleashed. And Murphy will stop being useful to the DEM’s the day he is sworn in.

I cannot wait for the next phase of Allen West.

There is more to come and AW will be operational very soon.

The Dems have unleashed a monster.

They /Amerika ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

Stay in touch and stay in the fight.

“Then there is Gertrude Walker, the 32-year-veteran election supervisor of St. Lucie County, who has spent much of the last two weeks explaining why her office completely botched the count. She admitted that her office had acted in ‘haste’ in issuing election results, and that ‘mistakes were made.’ Among her mistakes was failing to count 40 of the 94 precincts under her jurisdiction on Election Night — and then counting the other 54 twice. Indeed. On Friday, her office announced it had ‘discovered’ 304 additional early votes left in a box. None had been counted. But Walker wasn’t available for comment. She has been hospitalized for unknown reasons.”

As Steyn said the other day, our system is a disgrace compared to other nations is the Anglo-sphere.

When you have boxes of untraceable votes, in precincts that show more than 100% voter turnout, what would you expect?

It is the beginning of the Øbama banana republic (which I am sure will offend someone – I hope!)

Perhaps, if Colonel West does not get a full and ACCURATE recount, he could spend the next two years coordinating the groups that are trying to eliminate voter fraud and make sure that our military gets to vote in future elections. Get former military members to be poll watchers and find ways to insure that electronic voting is accurate.

As long as the Democrats can cheat at the polls, with non-citizen voters and corrupted computer programs, we’ll have elections that make Chavez’ elections look ethical.

Allen West 2016?! I’m in!

Is there any truth to the story that there where 900 votes cast in a district that had 7 registered voters?

I’m with Allen West, no matter what he decides to do. Go Allen…you have an army behind you!!!!


Regardless, it’s a shame if Congressman West is forced to concede. With one precinct counting 900 vote, yet with only 7 registered voters, something is really off in St. Lucie county, and the voters there deserve a full and total recount. And, as for Rep. West’s future, I’m looking forward to him making progressives’ lives miserable, whatever it may hold.

John Fund’s piece this morning points to an utter travesty in the election process in Florida. It sounds like the perfect time and place for a pitched battle. I’m confused why West would think losing this “unleashes” him rather than seeing it this fight as an opportunity to open up, through court action, the fraudulence of the democrat machinery once and for all? He’s right at the verge of exposing a major scandal and he’s going to quit?

[…] Disappointing news from Legal Insurrection. Thanks to the slow-walking of the recount by Walker’s office, Congressman West may have few […]

The media won’t investigate or report it. The public won’t know about it.

What’s the point?

“Stay in touch and stay in the fight.

Right. Sure. If Allen West falls, and relatively no one hears it, did it make a difference?

The right is going to do absolutely nothing about this except piss and moan. But hey – it’s Monday. Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.

I popped the pre- retabulation St Lucie data into Excel to look for anomalies. This stood out.
I compared the numbers of votes for for Romney minus West, with the number of votes for Obama minus Murphy. The results were 350 to 3500. Yes even numbers and a 10 to 1 ratio.
Also the number of blank votes for President was almost 400 and the total blanks in the D18 race were a bit under 5100. There were many precincts were the number of votes for Murphy significantly exceeded those for Obama. I suspect ~3000 votes were added for Murphy by persons other than the original voters.

If West’s camp can get access to the physical ballots I think you’ll find about 3000 “A” sheets where the markings for Murphy do not look like the markings for any of the other candidates on the sheet.

My excel sheet is available for the asking were some other discrepancies also surface.

While I’m on the subject of ballot tampering… As you already know Florida voters use the scanned ballot system. Because of the many long amendments this year every voter had two ballots.
I call these the A and B sheets. The A sheet has both the President and the D18 House seat. When the votes are tabulated there should be the same number of A and B sheets from each precinct.
St Lucie has 65 precincts. Only 4 of them managed to have the same number of A and B sheets.
They had an overall average deviation of 8.6
They clearly have a consistently high level of incompetence or something else…

I don’t understand how this can be over, when there’s incontrovertible evidence that ballots were copied while R observers were prevented from verifying that the copying was done honestly. How is it not a slam dunk for a court to order these ballots thrown out? Why was he fighting for a recount of the forged ballots, when it stands to reason that they’ll still say the same thing the second, third, and fourth time they’re counted? The point isn’t that they were miscounted but that they’re inadmissible in the first place, because of the tainted chain of custody.

    You make the presumption that law matters. Law does not matter. And besides, if it did, what will you or anyone else actually do about it? West’s spokesperson speaks of bayonets… pshaw. Paper bayonets hurt no one and that’s all we’re really talking about here. It’s all bs. No one will do anything of substance about this. Pissing and moaning is the order of the day.

Rumour & fact must be split here. It is highly likely that West was the target of organized ultra opposition by the Ds . There seemed to be noOrganized Response by the R party.

Due to the hugely differing personalities & platforms ,, it is quite possible many would vote for Romney & not for West. I guarantee no one voted Obama / West.

Florida is a wasteland of broken dreams. A few decent people step up every so often but are drowned By the incoming ttide of Yankees & other parasite invaders amongst the teeming local cultural wars.

If the Jill Kelley /Petraeus /Allen fiasco. Show us something , it is that the Military is also fully contaminated by Florida.


Col West would be more influential if he were to don strangely constructed bodiced dresses & begin a career as Hostess With The Mostest.

If ever there were good reason to invoke Article I Section 5, this is it —

Right there with you!

Allen West should petition the House for a new election, since the courts seem to be unable to be up to the task.
