Today West for Congress released the following statement regarding the state of the race in Florida’s 18th Congressional District:

Allen West for Congress released this statement regarding the state of the race in Florida’s 18th District | AllenWestRepublic

“With all provisional and absentee votes counted in the 18th District, Congressman West currently trails by roughly 2,400 votes, a margin outside of the threshold for an automatic recount. The race remains undecided because there are issues that still need to be resolved in St. Lucie County. Late on Election Night, Congressman West led by 1,700 votes. Following the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections’ decision to recount thousands of early ballots after a technical glitch, the margin shifted by 4,000. In order to ensure that votes were not doubled counted, we have requested that the St. Lucie Supervisor of Elections make public the poll check-in books to ensure the numbers of ballots cast matches the numbers of voters checked-in at the polls. Once that information is provided we believe the outcome of the election will be clear. It is troubling that days later that information is still not available. Our sole focus is ensuring all ballots were counted fairly and accurately.”

Please see the voter turn out numbers

No, no voter fraud there. Sheesh. He has a right to question it, any politician in his shoes would.

LOL.

Voter fraud rumor of the day: 141% voter turnout in St. Lucie County, Fla. | Twitchy

"Cards Cast" means the number of physical pieces of paper that were counted. Each ballot consisted of two "cards." So, as an example, in precinct 1 (with 4815 voters) there were 6550 cards cast, in other words 3275 actual votes, give or take a few -- as some voters may only have cast 1 card.

And another Faux "nontroversy" bites the dust.

Default Bye-bye, Allen West...

... you'll land on your feet. Probably as a Fox News "analyst." Maybe you and Sara Palin can get together and compare insults.
