idunno what's happening.Drama continues in the Allen West-Patrick Murphy partial recount in FloridaIn South Florida, the Allen West campaign gets a partial victory with the St. Lucie County recount that will begin soon to resolve potential tabulation errors during early voting. However, the drama continues as the Supervisor of Elections in St. Lucie County is now hospitalized and state representatives are present. The TC Palm reports:About 100 people milled around Supervisor of Elections Gertrude Walker's office Saturday morning while workers set up batteries of machines to recount eight days of early voting ballots that could effect the tight District 18 congressional race between Patrick Murphy and Allen West. As of 9:55 a.m., the recount had not begun. Five Sheriff's patrol cars were parked at the entrance to the building on Okeechobee Road, where security was tight. Saturday morning, Supervisor of Elections Gertrude Walker was nowhere to be seen. Friday night it was reported she had been taken to a hospital.[/break1]com/2012/11/17/drama-continues-in-the-allen-west-patrick-murphy-partial-recount-in-florida.aspx?ref=rss]http://electionlawcenter.com/2012/11/17 ... px?ref=rssBallot recount begins in West-Murphy raceBy Christine StapletonPalm Beach Post Staff WriterThe ballot recount in the House District 18 race got under way in St. Lucie County at 10 a.m. this morning with news that attorneys for Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy had filed an emergency motion to stop the recount.Dozens of observers, mostly supporters of incumbent Republican Rep. Allen West, crowded into the recount area in a deserted former shopping mall in Fort Pierce. Some heckled St. Lucie County Commissioner and Canvassing Board member Tod Mowery as he explained the recount process to the audience.Also in attendance are three members from the U.S. House Administration Committee, who travelled from Washington, DC at the request of West to observe the recount.Meanwhile, the Republican National Lawyers Association has sent out an appeal for donations to help pay West’s attorneys’ fees.more here:[/break1]palmbeachpost.com/news/news/state-regional-govt-politics/recount-begins/nS8pG/]http://www.palmbeachpost.com/news/news/ ... ins/nS8pG/Murphy's lawyers have filed a court motion to stop the action this morning.

The word is now that St. Lucie County missed the noon certification deadline so the unofficial results become certified and Murphy wins. (This is from the Murphy camp).

I went and looked at the tally that is on the St. Lucie website, and it shows six votes in precinct 93. I'm assuming there was something glitchy this morning (probably in their minds), but nowhere has there been a count of 900 for precinct 93.The precinct by precinct numbers are here: [/break1]slcelections.com/Pdf%20Docs/2012%20General/rescan/GEMS%20SOVC%20REPOR.pdf]http://www.slcelections.com/Pdf%20Docs/ ... 0REPOR.pdf

I see! I saved the pdf before refreshing.Let's see what the next one says :)
Edit: I'll get Verbie to help me copy paste it, but it says 3 votes for each in precinct 93. It's the November 11 tally.
Edit: Try going this way [/break1]slcelections.com]http://www.slcelections.com and picking statement of votes cast.

FORT PIERCE, Fla. (AP) — Election officials missed a deadline Sunday to report results of a two-day recount in GOP Rep. Allen West's race to remain in Congress, apparently sealing unofficial results giving the win to Democrat Patrick Murphy.St. Lucie County did not meet a noon cutoff to finish processing 37,379 ballots cast early in the District 18 congressional election. Under Florida law, previously submitted results favoring Murphy will be certified unless an emergency exemption is granted by the state."They did this recount because they weren't confident in the outcome," said West campaign manager Tim Edson. "Now, because they missed the deadline, we're not going to know whether they were right in their concern or not."Edson said the incumbent's campaign was looking at what could be done to possibly extend the deadline and suggested the fight was not yet over.Read more: [/break1]seattlepi.com/news/article/Deadline-passes-on-recount-Murphy-presumed-victor-4047991.php#ixzz2Cb94zurm]http://www.seattlepi.com/news/article/D ... z2Cb94zurm

Just 7 registered voters in a large community on Florida's coast? Why would that sound reasonable to anyone with a brain cell?

Since when are precincts set apart by country of origin or ethnicity. That's weird. Seven seems awfully small for a precinct. Not a secret ballot anymore.

Taitz:Recently a judge denied Allen West’s petition for a full recount. I hope Allen West appeals, however FL is the 11th circuit. The level of corruption in the 11 th circuit is ven worse then the 3rd circuit, so I am sure that the Praetorian guard of Obama’s attorney-law clerks will prepare an opinion against Allen West no matter what the argument will be and his appeal will be denied in the 11th circuit. This is really a very sad state of affairs. I feel that the nightmare of the Soviet Union is back in full force. :roll: This was part of the long diatribe previously linked to the malware-ridden Taitz site in Poopies, I believe. It's the link about Orly getting calls after 11pm and not having a crystal ball, and don't call her without you gotz emergency and stuff.

From West's Facebook page:They said after all info was uploaded that Murphy was the winner with the new tapes after everything was all uploaded. I am listening live with Gary. They will be posting this information soon for the public. West only gained 34 and Murphy gained 274.How many times does this asshole have to lose?

That must have been those 300 that they found after the first count was tallied. Almost 9 to 1 in Murphy's favor. Just keep looking and stomping your foot, soon-to-be-ex- Congress Member West. Make the GOP look even better the more you act like a spoiled brat.
