Surprise: County that 'defeated' Allen West had 141.1% turnout, West leads in recount!demanded a recount in St. Lucie County, Florida, one of the three counties that is at least partly included in his district.
I'm sure that you'll all be shocked to hear that St.. Lucie County, which voted overwhelmingly for President Hussein Obama, had a turnout of 141.1% on election day. I'm sure you'll be really shocked to hear (no sarcasm in that one) that West is leading the recount.
This is from the first link.
Out of 175,554 registered voters, 247,713 vote cards were cast in St. Lucie County, Florida on Tuesday. Barack Obama won the county.And from the second link, West now leads by 195 votes.
When faced with the astronomical figures, Gertrude Walker, Supervisor of Elections for St. Lucie County, said she had no idea why turnout was so incredibly high. She was flabbergasted, saying, "We've never seen that here."
Coincidentally (or not), St. Lucie County is also in Allen West's district, where 6,000 votes mysteriously "shifted" from Mr. West to his challenger.
BOOTS ON THE GROUND UPDATE FROM THE ALLEN WEST ELECTION COUNT via Gary Angelo Galiano:It also sounds like Mitt Romney should be demanding a recount in a few states. This is from the first link again.
This should mean that there will be a FINAL RECOUNT in Tallahassee of ALL the votes in this election!!
They will now go thru ALL the ballots and make this official. This c ould take a week or two.
THANKS goes out to the TEA Party patriots of South Florida who did some really incredible work...
Along with this questionable result, Mr. Obama also received over 99% of the vote in numerous districts in Broward County. In various districts in Cleveland, he received 100% of the vote. In Florida, Mr. Obama received over 99% of the vote in precincts where GOP inspectors had been removed.All via Bad Blue.
As for the Presidential race, there's no connection between Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Florida, right?
And by the way, these aren't the only areas with over 100% turnout. There's Boston at 129%.
