Who Won the Election in Florida’s 18th Congressional District?

Rep. Allen West has served one term as a congressman from Florida. He was threatened with a court-martial in 2003 after serving in the Army in Iraq over an interrogation technique used to gain intelligence from an Iraqi police officer

(Nov. 11, 2012) — Differing reports dated November 10 state that both Patrick Murphy and Allen West won the congressional seat in Florida’s 18th District.

On Wednesday morning, Murphy was declared the unofficial winner and claimed the seat.  West, the incumbent, insisted on a hand recount of ballots in St. Lucie County, where 141% of registered voters were found to have voted and “tens of thousands” of absentee ballots had reportedly not been counted. Other “irregularities” which West cited were provisional votes not having been reconciled and a batch of 37,000 early ballots which were not able to be uploaded properly.

An attorney for West stated that “fraud” was a possibility after his team was “not getting to observe the vote count.”

West’s Facebook page dated November 10 states that after a recount, West was leading Murphy by 195 votes.  A partial recount of St. Lucie County is scheduled for early Sunday morning.

Florida’s 18th District was redrawn in 2010 as a result of the census, and West had represented the 22nd District.  Fox News states that the contested seat is in the 22nd District.

A Tea Party organization is seeking volunteers in Florida and other states to investigate claims of voter fraud.

    Do all of these accounts of fraud and mathematically improbable turnouts (109% turn out in some areas, 100% votes cast for Obama in others)affect what will happen with the Electoral College…As Allen West recently stated, “I do not want this country to turn into ZIMBABWE.”

    If this is any indication of the quantity of election fraud, then the whole nation needs to be re counted. Particularly the swing states.
