Recount brouhaha: Numbers shift, Murphy camp claims win, West camp vows legal action

by George Bennett | November 11th, 2012

FORT PIERCE — A partial recount of early ballots from St. Lucie County further narrowed Democrat Patrick Murphy’s thin margin of victory over Republican U.S. Rep. Allen West, prompting the West campaign to call for a recount of all the early-vote ballots.

Murphy’s total dropped by 667 votes and West lost 132 votes in the recount of 16,275 ballots from the last three days of early voting in St. Lucie County. West’s net gain of 535 votes still leaves him about 0.58 percent behind Murphy in congressional District 18, which also includes Martin County and part of Palm Beach County.

A margin of 0.5 percent or closer is needed to trigger a recount under state law.

West’s campaign manager, Tim Edson, called the recount a “sham” because St. Lucie County’s canvassing board originally announced it would recount all 37,379 early votes cast in the county. He said the West campaign will pursue “every legal action available to make sure every vote is counted fairly and accurately in this election.”

Murphy attorney Sean Dominick said there is no reason for additional recounts.

“They’re sill outside the margin for a recount and there is absolutely no reason to think that any of the other days would change the outcome at all,” Dominick said.

“They (the West campaign) got what they wanted. They lost. It’s time to step aside and let Patrick Murphy do the business of the people of the 18th congressional district and he looks forward to representing them in Congress.”

The early vote totals came into question on election night when some electronic memory cards containing early ballots could not initially be read by tabulating machines. The ballots were scanned later in the evening and changed what had been a small West lead into a small Murphy advantage.

Elections officials said the problem was confined to ballots from the last three days of early voting. But the West campaign said it was told Thursday that the problem was with the first three days.

“The real issue now is trying to determine if the batch that they recounted was in fact the correct batch of affected votes. They say they know they counted the right batch of early votes. But the public has no way of knowing that,” said Jeffrey Scott Shapiro, a volunteer attorney for the West campaign.

“I think it would have been a lot simpler if they had just done what they said they were going to do on their Internet site and recount all the early votes. There was no reason not to do that,” Shapiro said.

A notice on the St. Lucie County elections website on Saturday advertised an emergency meeting of the canvassing board this morning “to recount all ballots cast during early voting.”

But Assistant County Attorney Heather Young began the proceedings by announcing only the last three days of early voting would be recounted because those were the only days for which there was a problem reading memory cards. And while the meeting was advertised as a “recount,” Young later said it was more properly a “re-feed” of ballots.

    Go Murphy!

  2. Nemo Says:

    THE DEMOCRATS STOLE THE ELECTION AND ALSO DISENFRANCHISED OUR MILITARY!

  3. Toni Says:

    West obviously has more money than brains – he is a hateful, mean-spirited man who was asked to leave the military for unspeakable acts of cruelty and yet be runs around pretending to be a hero.

  4. Steven Says:

    Afraid to say that for West….this party is over!

  5. jebamoni4 Says:

    This war crminal ought not have been paid any pension. But he had a plea bargain. Who stole the money?
    He is a thug and unfit to be in the military and unfit to represent people in Florida!!!

  6. Joey Says:

    And what were those “unspeakable acts of cruelty” Toni?

    You’re just a racist who hates Col West because he’s black.

  7. Fed Up Says:

    West is a sore loser.

  8. Joey Says:

    You’re a racist.

  9. guest Says:

    “there is absolutely no reason to think that any of the other days would change the outcome at all,” Dominick said.

    Then why not count them?

  10. dabigjuan Says:

    So the Right winger who is normally against frivolous legal action is now all for it since he didn’t get his way. How typical of his hypocritical type.

  11. SOFLGirl Says:

    Seriously, bye Alan!! I could NOT be happier that he won’t be representing my interests in District 18….

    You lost so now go!! Go to court all you want…the numbers are just NOT there for you! Better call Karl Rove for some money….don’t use ours.

    There is NO WAY YOU CAN WIN….LEAVE!!!!

  12. Joey Says:

    You’re just a racist who voted for a drunk over a war veteran.

  13. Educated Says:

    Mr West is a disgraceful embarrassment to our race (yes, we are a mixed family), SoFL, USA, and mankind. It is obviously all about him for Mr West. He displays no regard for fair play, our country, our state, or humanity. Is there any low to which he won’t stoop?

  14. ken Says:

    I heard Mr. Murphy speak at a “Meet the Candidates Night” at the 10th Street community center in Stuart back in July. Bob Crowder spoke also. Mr. West did not attend.Both Murphy and Crowder made the theme of their talk bipartisanship in solving problems. I would be proud to have either Mr. Murphy or Mr. Crowder represent the people of the Treasure Coast. Mr. West is a divider.

  15. Atlas Shruggery Says:

    Another delusional Teabagger. How many more tax dollars must we waste on Allen West’s ego trip?

  16. Joey Says:

    You’re just a racist who voted for a drunk over a war veteran.

  17. Atlas Shruggery Says:

    @Joey You mean ‘war criminal’, right?

  18. Joey Says:

    Nope, a war HERO, coming from someone that actually served, which I doubt you ever had the guts to do.

  19. Jessie S Says:

    Funny, it’s hard to be a racist when we voted for President Obama. LOL!

    West was a disgrace to the military uniform and an embarrassment to the nation.

    He should have a little dignity and concede with some grace. He sounds like a whining 2 year old who can’t have his way.

    Buy-bye West.

  20. Buster Brown Says:

    How many of you commenting liberal democrats were in the military? ZERO! The vote count is corrupt and West deserves a recount. What’s wrong with you people? This country is going to hell and y’all are following like sheep being led to slaughter!

  21. Joey Says:

    @ Jessie S you mean like Al Franken did? Let me guess…doesn’t count. Hypocrite.

  22. drippinhun Says:

    Joey,

    Don’t end up being a loser like West.

  23. SOFLGirl Says:

    Joey- please educate yourself! Seriously, he DID NOTHING in District 22…just go look up his legislative record! Rick Scott is the next TEABAGGER (voter surpression) who will be voted out next!

    We will be out in droves!

    Promise!!

    OH, PA, VA & FL will have major changes in 2014….just watch!

  24. Obamaisafailure Says:

    Joey

    You sound like your probably West in drag!!!!

  25. Joey Says:

    @SOFLGirl…put your crystal ball away. You know nothing. Stop being a racist. The partial recount already showed that the vote count was messed up as Murphy lost votes. That fact alone is enough to make sure the rest is accurate. What are you afraid of?

  26. RES Says:

    @Joey – Did you vote for Obama? No??? Guess that makes you a racist too!!!

  27. Joey Says:

    @Obamaisafailure at least you got your handle correct.

  28. Joey Says:

    @RES Obama is half white. guess that makes you wrong.

  29. sammy Says:

    The democrats are definitely hypocrites….They complain about not having more early voting—-which is obviously going to change for the next election and should. But then they complain about a recount. Why would you not be in favor of a recount to PROVE which man won…..Otherwise there is ALWAYS going to be comments from the Republicans about scams, corruption, etc…

    Buster Brown

    Typical uneducated, uniformed right wing hack. Living in a fantasy world of BS propaganda you have been fed.
    Probably more liberals serve in the military than neo-cons. It was liberals who won this countries independance!!!

    There was nothing at all wrong with the original vote count. West is a self deluded moron whos ego can’t accept the fact that he lost so he is trying to make any kind of fuss he can think of.
    10 years from now he will still be arguing that he really won the election. I don’t care how many times they count the ballots!
    He needs to be told to go home, walked out the door, and ignored from then on!

  32. farmer Says:

    Joey just likes to see his name appear – he is the type of no substance blogger. Someday he might grow up and try to be an American who will bring people together instead of having diarrhea of the mouth & mind.

  33. DRBuzzard Says:

    OK, I voted for west, want him to win, but if there was this big a change, then i think it is fair to say all early votes not already re-counted should be. If murphy’s winning margin – if it still exists – exceeds the number of outstanding military absentee ballots that have till NOV 12 to arrive, he wins. If closer, wait for those votes, then if that also puts it in the official recount range, recount all and let it be fair. I hope west wins, but it should be a fair vote.

  34. Joey Says:

    @RES Obama is half white. guess that makes you wrong.

    I’m actually a masochistic racist!!!

  35. Jim Guinnessey Says:

    In a race this tight either candidate, West or Murphy, would be concerned. Yet the math evidence points to a narrow Murphy win for District 18. Congressman West should swallow his pride, be proud of his short tenure as congressman for District 18 and gentlemanly congratulate Congressman Patrick Murphy.

  36. Scott Says:

    Allen West is a loser. He lost this race. We don’t want his hate filled venom contaminating our politics anymore. He is an egomaniac, who wraps himself in the flag, and calls himself a true American. I respect his military service, but that does not guarantee a good politician. We voted you out Allen. Accept the will of your constituents. I believe you continue this, not for our good, but only to feed your ego, and your credentials for your “base”. Please leave us alone Allen, we don’t want you as our representative.

  37. VoiceOfReason Says:

    I’m glad West is out of office – and not because of his race, but because he’s a nasty hateful guy, and a sore loser. Before you call me a racist, know that I’m a middle-aged WASP woman who voted for our black President because he’s an honorable, intelligent, man who has our best interests at heart. Race has nothing to do with my opinion of these two men. I dislike West because he’s a nasty, vicious brute.

  38. Buster Brown Says:

    RENEGADE

    Enjoy your free cell phone, free food stamps, free healthcare you socialistic moron! The conservatives are the military officers the liberals are the grunts that just follow and do what they’re told! Soon you liberals will be in the soup line begging for a loaf of bread and a bottle of milk. I’ll bet you voted for Carter and Clinton if you’re even old enough to know who there are.

  39. Joey Says:

    No, you are a hardcore Lib Dem who strictly votes party line no matter what. You fool nobody. You voted for a drunk partyboy over a black war hero. Stop trying to explain away your stupidity.

  40. RES Says:

    @Joey – Here’s the point – You don’t have to be a racist to reject West, he is very simply an extremist jerk who would be an extremist jerk whether he was black, white, blue, purple, green, or orange. St. Lucie County doesn’t want a jerk like him representing us.

  41. SOFLGirl Says:

    @Joey

    I’m not racist at all…I don’t support Alan West based on his record not to mention he is an extremist in every sense of the word….good riddance!

  42. RENEGADE Says:

    Buster Brown

    Typical uneducated, uniformed right wing hack. Living in a fantasy world of BS propaganda you have been fed.

    THANK YOU FOR PROVING MY POINT SO ELOQUENTLY!! LOL!!!

  43. Atlas Shruggery Says:

    @Joey It isn’t because we’re racists. It’s because Allen West is a douchenozzle.

  44. gorman Says:

    There needs to be an immediate investigation of the vote-counting in St. Lucie. Obviously West was going to win if all 37,000 or so the votes were counted as was originally agreed. Again the hypocrite democratic machine wants to steal this election. Go West, you are the true winner.

  45. RENEGADE Says:

    Buster Brown

    BTW I almost forgot.
    THE COMMANDER AND CHIEF IS A LIBERAL!!!! ROFLMAO!!!!!!!

  46. ucmj Says:

    IT’S OVER, Time for west to be a man and concede, IT’S OVER

  47. @joey Says:

    Why are calling everyone who voted against West a racist? Using your logic – or lack thereof – everyone who voted against Obama is a racist…including you!!!

  48. Wes Says:

    Funny how when there is a dispute aganst right wingers they get all riled up, but notice you haven’t heard a lot about maricopa county az where the ELECTIONS supervisors office sent out the wrong voting dates in spanish, but on the other side, in english, it gave the right one and not a peep from the right

  50. Rich Avallone Says:

    I was part of the ballot transfer process in Palm beach county. The demactats that were there were nasty and rude. They had some George Soros Occupiers in house and claimed the food that was brought in for the republican West supporters was “the peoples food”. This is very distubing, communist sympathisers at the SOE.

  51. politicaljules Says:

    I stand with Allen West.

  52. Dale E Shaw Says:

    The Supreme Court needs to intervene and to stop the recount. I believe there is a precedent to this case, it happened in 2000.

  53. the people's food Says:

    I know, Rich, I can’t believe that these 47%ers feel entitled to food. Who do they think they are?

    We 1%ers need to stick together and deny anyone who doesn’t have a Swiss bank account the right to eat.

    Damn moochers. Trying to eat OUR food and live in peace in OUR country. The NERVE!

    Long live Allen West! I say we void the rules and make Allen West the dictator of the new empire of East Florida!

    /LOL

    Seriously, Allen West is a disgusting anti-American pig and I couldn’t be more excited that he lost and will be replaced by a real American and quality guy like Patrick Murphy.

  54. T. J. Ewing Says:

    So, by right wing logic, if you didn’t vote for West your a racist? Wonder how many of these racists also voted for Obama? Incredible logic and pathetic also. West is a loser all around who had to leave the military and pay a fine, couldn’t cut it as a teacher and couldn’t run in his original district because he would have lost. And, he couldn’t win in his “new” gerrymandered district(by the Florida GOP/Teabagger legislature) either. A real loser all around. The right wingers love West because he says insulting things about people but has no substance. West did NOTHING for the people in district 22. West is a certifiable nut case and a LIAR. Good riddance to West. He won’t be missed!

  55. RENEGADE Says:

    Rich Avallone

    You weren’t there because I was and I didn’t see you. And there was no food brougt in for just West supporters either.

    Funny thing is you spell as badly as our local lying POS TROLL!!!

  56. sherry lucas Says:

    If the Supervisor of Elections published there would be a total recount of ALL ballots cast of early voting, then Asst City Atty HeatherYoung should know that by law,THAT which was published takes precedence by law. IFthe supervisor of elections and the city attorney wished to “cherry pick” what they wanted to do, by law should have provided ethical & legal notice saying they were not or did not plan to recount all votes. This man who served honorably for each of our freedom & liberty should be treated decently but it is obvious those involved i.e., supervisor election, city atty & murphy’s atty are using their own political clout to suit their own political means. Is this AMERICA…or have we become so corrupt that people in plaxes of leadership are allowed to get by with a wink-wink, nod-nod? I didn’t think Col. Allen West thought he was fighting for communist ideologies, oe have we been reduced to that? PLEASE, WILL SOMEONE DO THE RIGHT THING? THIS Country & the voters deserve better. RECOUNT ALL THE VOTES.

  57. steve Says:

    Isn’t anyone concerned that out of 16,000 ballots, 800 of them were initally tallied incorrectly!! Geez. I thought this was a modern society in which we live and vote? The Supervisor of Elections in SLC is incompetent and a disgrace. Her office cannot even do simple math. The people deserve better.

  58. John Q Public Says:

    http://freefloridafirst.org/petition.htm

  59. Jason Marcel Says:

    Democrats are too nice. Let’s say Murphy finishes a couple thousand votes behind, outside the recount margin. Does anyone honestly think that GOP officials would have done what Dem officials did today?

    Today’s count was done because the Dem officials wanted to make sure they had things right about the three days they were concerned about.

    West still lost by outside the margin of a recount.

    So funny how people who hate gov’t are now clinging to remain there.

  60. marie seaton Says:

    One point that is overlooked is the fact of GOP’s attempted voter suppression tactics. Also St Lucie is a county where other Democratic candidates won. Plus, West did not get the expected voter totals in Palm Beach County.All of these factors could be the difference as to why West lost. The rule says no recount unless the total is .5%. If a recount is approved in this race future candidates that lose can request the same treatment.

  61. marie seaton Says:

    For people crying about Democrats cheating should talk to the people who stood in line for hours because the GOP reduced early voting hours. Florida has become a disgrace throughout the world.

  62. Kathleen Says:

    I wonder if Murphy’s father and George Soros are willing to put up more money to buy Patrick Murphy a seat. According to news reports every vote in Florida should be recounted. My hope is that West will not allow the Democrats to get away with the fraud that resulted in Frankel stealing Coleman’s seat in MN, only to later discover the 300+ votes that propelled Frankel into office were fraudulent.

  63. Mason Kelsey Says:

    Patrick Murphy won. End of story.

    Allen West is a bully and a thug.

  64. Tony Says:

    I’m sick and tired of these republican idiots crying racism about people wanting West to lose.I’m black,I seen and know racism.This is not racism.These people and me want West gone because he is a loudmouth fool, spitting hateful divisive stupid words. This clown was put out the military because he had no honor,wanted his wife to be a porn star, and is setting black people back 50 years. The right wing likes him because he puts a BLACK FACE on things they want to say anyway.

  65. Chuck Winn Says:

    Murphy loosing over 5 times as many votes as West in this very limited St Lucie recount is clear evidence of major tabulation flaws. The Secretary of State needs to intervene.

  66. jack dunbar Says:

    West’s campaign manager, Tim Edson, called the recount a “sham” because St. Lucie County’s canvassing board originally announced it would recount all 37,379 early votes cast in the county. He said the West campaign will pursue “every legal action available to make sure every vote is counted fairly and accurately in this election.”

    Where did Chuck Winn get his figures from a comic book?

    Edson and West arn’t looking for fair they are lookin to steal this election that has already been called for Congressman Elect Murphy. They both act so innocent as they accuse everyone of cheating, fraud, chaos. Yes Edson and West everyone is out to get you as if they had to. This was coming and you both knew it. There was no foul play here until you two asses started crying like to 13 year old girls. Soon you will both be crying for real when the judge rules against you as he should. No grounds for another recount. Crawl back in the hole you both came out of. Hey West have you see tv lately. Your already the brunt of jokes. You were featured in Bill Maher’s show and it was hilarious. If nothing else you make for a good laugh.

  67. Critical Thinker Says:

    Kicked out of the Army, kicked out of the Congress. Let’s see if Allen West can make it in the private sector for a change? The people on FL-18 have spoken.

  68. Rick Says:

    I am a republican who served 10 years in the Army, and I did not vote for West. West’s idiology does not represent me, or the majority of the soldiers I so proudly served with. Be a man for once in your life Lt. Col West, and go away quietly.

  69. Wake Up Says:

    Republicans need to tap Karen Marcus for a 2014 run against Murphy.

    Marcus has a very loyal, faithful following in PBC and she could easily entice St Lucie voters.

    Republicans can’t afford to allow S FL to be overtaken by democrats. There should be no surrender for FL would then become the new CA-a state with 1 party domination-democrats.

    Once the population hubs go democrat they will creep up into central and eventually northern FL counties.

    Time to pay attention Republicans or FL’s 29 electoral will perennially go to the democrats in presidential and senatorial elections.

    Get busy! Maybe with new leadership in the republican party here in PBC, there can be republican latinos enticed to run for local office because there are PLENTY of capable republican latinos to run!

    Wake up! Republicans or kiss the state and it’s votes to democrats in future elections.

    Take latinos away from democrats. That is easily done.

  70. Don't be a hater Says:

    Democrats are haters. Just look at the hate they spew, there is no decent discourse, it’s mostly hate filled.

    Don’t be a hater. Take your victory and move forward.

  71. The Truth Hurts Says:

    These comments from the right wing nuts are nothing but a bunch of non-sensical Fox News propaganda. Here are the facts:

    1. Allen West is NO hero. He committed an act of terrorism against a POW when said POW was handcuffed to a CHAIR and had a shroud over his head. The Geneva Convention exists FOR A REASON; he not only IGNORED it, but his conduct was unbecoming of an officer and for this incident (and other documented offenses) he was threatened with A COURT MARTIAL and time in Leavenworth if he didn’t retire and leave quietly. He’s done NOTHING in Congress except accuse Democratic House & Senate members of being “Communists” yet cannot name one. He’s done nothing but make our state look like its inhabited by a bunch of racist, extremist idiots (by the tone of some of these comments, it’s true)

    2. EVERYONE WHO’S MADE A COMMENT @ PATRICK MURPHY HAS DONE SOMETHING THEY ARE LESS THAN PROUD OF WHILE UNDER THE INFLUENCE (OR SOBER FOR THAT MATTER) If you say you’ve never done anything you aren’t proud of-YOU ARE A LIAR.
    Murphy’s collegiate drunken night is NOTHING COMPARED TO VIOLATING INTERNATIONAL RULES OF COMBAT AND THE CODE OF CONDUCT WHICH APPLIES TO ENLISTED PERSONNEL IN THE UNITED STATES ARMED FORCES.

    With that being said, Our country was founded on the premise of helping everyone, not just those at the top/wealthy. We are NOT a welfare country and we do not ‘hate’. We a not homophobic, racist, bigoted, misogynistic or wanting to dictate everyone’s actions and thoughts. Take a look at the bills presented to Congress for consideration that THE REPUBLICANS VETOED. SOME OF THESE WERE EVEN WRITTEN BY THE CONGRESSMEN WHO SPONSORED AND WROTE THEM:

    It’s disgusting that THE REPUBLICANS attempt to blame Obama for not working with Congress when it is so easy to prove how the Republicans have worked against him. All their actions are in the House and Senate records, including the use of filibuster in the Senate.

    Some of the bills that they filibustered – bills that would have helped American people in this difficult economy

    FACTS DON’T LIE.

    ALLEN WEST LOST BECAUSE OF ALLEN WEST, NO ONE OR NOTHING ELSE. HE DIDN’T LOSE BECAUSE OF THE COLOR OF HIS SKIN, HE LOST BECAUSE HE’S IGNORANT, HATEFUL AND A BIGOT. HE NEEDS TO TAKE HIS PENSION AND FREE VA BENEFITS (LIVING OFF THE GOVERNMENT) AND GO AWAY.

  72. The Truth Hurts Says:

    Let the Republicans dismantle FEMA and leave disaster relief up to the individual states. Florida can’t even pay for decent education (we have a lottery that can’t seem to function for its intended purpose)It’s funny to see those so against “Big Government” running with their tails between their legs when a disaster strikes and they need financial help. What a bunch of idiots.

  75. West is the coward Says:

    Allen West is a coward. He isn’t man enough to admit he lost. Why does he feel its his right to be a sore looser. People hate poltical games, that’s all Allen west does is play games, then spew a sound bite.

    He’s better off out of Washington and really any public life. He didn’t do one thing in Washington besides hate, he just needs to be a man and loose with grace.

    Murphy leads by 55.4% over 44.5% in St Lucie. St Lucie is the District West wants the recount and he is basing his percentage by the total of all 3 Districts.. Why is he taking the total percentage of all 3 Districts if he only wants the recall in St Lucie?

    If he is basing on the percentage of all 3 countries, then the recount should apply to every District, not cherry-picked by West. He only won Palm Beach by 185.
