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.
Yep. I see it. When I go to the page where it shows West/Murphy race, precinct 93 shows 3 votes for each.It's page 22.[/break1]slcelections.com/Pdf%20Docs/2012%20General/rescan/GEMS%20SOVC%20REPORT.pdf]http://www.slcelections.com/Pdf%20Docs/ ... REPORT.pdfThat report is dated November 11.

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.I can't speak to FL specifically, but even here we have small pockets of Vietnamese or Hispanic residents who may or may not be eligible/registered to vote, and our voting precincts are drawn by population, so it's totally feasible that a precinct could have a high population count but a low number of voters of a certain ethnicity. It's particularly prevalent along the coast with whole settlements of Vietnamese fishermen populations. I'm guessing cities with a Chinatown might look similar.

Are people registered by ethnicity within a precinct? I am finding the statements about the Guatamalans very peculiar. It does not compute.Most of the Chinese here are scattered throughout and Chinatown has recent immigrants who don't vote. Same with other groups. Polls would be the only way to find out how people voted and I would not expect them to be in anyway accurate.

Recount over. Patrick Murphy gained 242 votes in the recount.

Polls would be the only way to find out how people voted and I would not expect them to be in anyway accurate.They aren't registered by ethnicity, but if that ethnicity is what makes up the precinct then it makes sense for them to be referred to as a "Guatemalan precinct" or whatever. SF also has a vast Chinatown, spread out over a number of precincts. Chinatown in a FL town would probably be confined to an area that might be defined by blocks, not miles. It's completely logical to me that one precinct within a district might have a majority ethnic makeup. My sister lives 2 blocks north and 2 blocks east of me and votes in a different precinct, although her polling place is directly between our house and our polling place. That's how small precincts can be. The precinct 1/2 mile north of us is a cluster of apartment complexes with a majority of Hispanic residents and they regularly have an extremely low number of registered voters and votes cast. I'm not sure why having a majority Guatamalan precinct would seem peculiar to you. The Guatamalans probably settle together in specific areas just like any other ethnicity. Or maybe I'm just not understanding what you're saying.

this cbs report gives West's campaign guy's story about the 900 votes. There's no evidence that the story is true, but the TeaBaggers are all wound up.West's campaign, though, is calling for an emergency hearing over "concerns" raised during the recount process, including results showing that 900 votes were cast in precinct 93, where there are only seven voters registered.[/break1]cbsnews.com/8301-34222_162-57551561-10391739/rep-allen-west-challenger-declares-victory-again-after-missed-certification-deadline/]http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-34222_162-5 ... -deadline/But Allen West actually fell further behind. Allen West has never done anything gracious in his life. Always the buffoon.

St. Lucie recount results shows Murphy picked up votes on West


St. Lucie election official said state-mandated noon deadline met





By James Kirley


Posted November 18, 2012 at 9:01 a.m., updated November 18, 2012 at 2:58 p.m.








FORT PIERCE -- Results of recounting more than 37,000 St. Lucie County ballots were announced shortly after 2 p.m. Sunday and preliminary figures given by Canvassing Board member Tod Mowery placed Jupiter Democrat Patrick Murphy farther ahead of Republican Allen West than before the two-day effort began."Twelve o'oclock is the certification deadline," said Eric Johnson, senior advisor to the Murphy campaign. "When that certification deadline passes, the last results posted are the official results."





Johnson said he had consulted with a lawyer before arriving at that announcement.





However, Clark said election officials got the results to the state in time.





"We met the noon deadline," Clark said.[/break1]tcpalm.com/news/2012/nov/18/we-still-dont-know/]http://www.tcpalm.com/news/2012/nov/18/ ... dont-know/

This is the last post on the [/break1]facebook.com/AllenWestRepublic?ref=stream]Allen West Republic Facebook page. (Thanks for the link Mimi)https://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos- ... 536_n.jpgI suspect that this means that poor Allen will be on Fox and Friends in the morning to announce his new show! My guess is that it will be called "The Conservative Nation with Allen West". :-Asshats! They lose an election and it has to be because of fraud and corruption! However, when you win on a 5-4 SCOTUS decision and the refrain is, "Shut up! We won!! You lost!!!"

Har de har, har. Poor ol' Allen West can't even get his foot in the door in the state District Court of Bun-Dogs, and Orly's already litigating it - OK, but losing - in the federal Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. She blew his doors off and he's eating her dust!!

Ta-Nehisi Coates The gap between West and his opponent is outside of the official number needed to trigger a recount. Still, I'd love to hear about those errors, and how you lose three hundred votes. I'm sure this isn't an abnormality. But in close elections it matters. We really need to do better.[/break1]theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2012/11/whats-the-matter-with-florida/265382/]http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/arc ... da/265382/ :evil: I wish they would add that as the recount was done, the gap between West and Murphy got wider, and that it favored Murphy.

Allen West Concedes Florida House Race


Rep. Allen West (R-FL) has conceded his House race to Democrat Patrick Murphy, the Palm Beach Post reports Tuesday, ending one of the nastiest and costliest races this election cycle.


“While many questions remain unanswered, today I am announcing that I will take no further action to contest the outcome of this election,” West says in a statement released this morning.





Murphy has led by less than 1 percent since election night. Final results Sunday from Palm Beach, Martin and St. Lucie counties gave the Democrat a lead over West of 1,904 votes or 0.58 percent.[/break1]talkingpointsmemo.com/entry/allen-west-concedes-florida-house-race]http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/e ... house-race

Did he Concede, or Secede?Mebbe some of the adult had a chat with him about "appearances".Unfortunately some nasty bastards in Georgia want to play with this nasty bastard.
Edit: If he secedes, the loses about 2 mil in pension benefits/medical (retired at LTC (O-5) one step higher than Wally) and the same as that Lakin fella. That is until his wife gets fed up, pissed, splits the sheets with 50% of it.

I do not personally know Allan West, but I know his type.  I don't think he was particularly adored, or even liked by his peers in the military.  I certainly do not think he was respected. I don't think he is a particularly decent neighbor.  I don't think he would be respected, or liked in the military or private sector.  I don't think he was particularly respected or liked in government, but that in government, he served a purpose.  I am sorry to say that, but I think it is true.  He was and his money backers were...a means to an end.  And he is angry.  Before he had the backing of the Right-wing nuts.  Now all he has are the extreme Right-wing nuts.  And, as with Romney and the rest of the Right-wing nut whores, I do NOT feel sorry for them.  Reap the hatred and stupidity you sow.  Bye Bye.

They are more dangerous because of their assignments. Then,there are the others like Steve King and Louie Gohmert. Until we get a better House, we will still have a mess on our hands. ?( We have too many weak links.

Why saying someone is a Ding Dong is funny to me and saying someone is an Oreo is not funny but offensive, perplexes me. I should not be so thin-skinned except for an incident with my son's middle school principle. But that is another story, and I will move on now.
