Surprise, Surprise UPDATED

Col. West is up 300 votes as the Palm Beach County vote count continues (Yeah, we still can’t count ballots down here very well.)

Rep. Allen West is leading by more than 300 votes in Palm Beach County, Fla., a hopeful sign for the Tea Party favorite fighting for his political life after Tuesday’s election, a source told TheBlaze.

No winner has been declared in the congressional race between the Republican West and his Democratic opponent Patrick Murphy, though Murphy had a 2,456-vote lead in the unofficial vote total.

But a Republican observer who has been monitoring the counting process said West pulled ahead in Palm Beach County on Thursday as the initial count continues. Ballot printing errors led to ballots that could not be fed through scanners in some areas, so Florida election workers have been forced to reproduce their contents onto new ballots that can be read properly, the observer said. As the votes are counted for the first time, West has taken a slim lead.

Col. West was in court today to fight this travesty, especially after the abortion of vote fraud in St. Lucie County where Murphy “suddenly” surged from a 2K vote deficit to a 2K lead after the election supervisor ordered a recount of the early votes Tuesday night.

More as it becomes available.

 UPDATE;

A shitload of “irregularities” in the PBC count;

“We are not getting to observe the vote count,” he said. Mr. Shapiro has been overseeing the process at the Riveria Beach vote tabulation center. Temporary workers are helping the local staff oversee the count of absentee ballots, those damaged by voting machines, and ballots in which the three pages have become separated. They are making new ballots to replace the damaged ones, and are required to mark them with the same votes. Florida law allows observers to be present but they are being blocked from making sure the ballots are marked accurately.

A physical barrier had been erected making it impossible for the observers to see what was going on. After repeated objections, the observers were allowed to stand behind the people reproducing the ballots. But then the ballot workers blocked their view. “Half of the people reproducing the ballots are crowding together,” Mr. Shapiro said, “to make it impossible for anyone to see what they are doing.” He added that “there is a sense that since they spend so much time obstructing our view they are not reproducing [the ballots] correctly.”

An elderly man who stood up to try to get a better look at the ballots was ordered to sit down. When he asked why, Elections Supervisor Susan Bucher called a sheriff’s deputy to have him escorted out of the building. Team West volunteer Ellen Snyder has also faced the wrath of the supervisory staff. “They screamed at me twice” for asking questions she said, and threatened to have her removed.

Critical questions are also being raised about the estimated 8,000 military absentee ballots, These ballots could decide the election but were only picked up on Wednesday. They are being counted in an area that is off-limits to observers, but no explanation has been given why. Unlike the damaged ballots, the military ballots are not being reproduced but only counted. Yet from a distance Ms. Snyder saw a worker marking them. When she tried to bring this to the attention Mrs. Bucher’s assistant she was ignored. Another observer saw four military ballots in a row being peremptorily invalidated with no explanation. When Ms. Snyder tried to ask Mrs. Bucher a question about what was happening “she looked like she wanted to spit she was so mad. She is very hostile.”

Hostility is a two way street. And some people are much more efficient at it. Just sayin’.

    Democrats will do anything to win. Lie, Cheat, Steal and kill. All they care about is power and wealth, not the good of the nation.

    People like Col. West are a threat to them and must be destroyed at all costs. :em08:

    If he wins he needs to demand the Speakership from Boner. If not…rebellion, the House Tea Party has enough votes to stop any collaboration with Obongo by the so called “leadership”.

    I am to misbehave

    And this is what Obamney should have done. Demand recounts in all of the in-play states he lost.
    But NOOOOOO. That is not the way a Gentleman does it. And far, far better that the United Stated crash and burn beyond repair, than Mitt get his hands dirty and muss his heir, It was all about getting “Run for President” checked off the to do list. Same as for BobDolt, McShame, several Bushes, and too many others. It is time to add the Glorified Old Ponces to the enemies list alongside the MSM and the DNC.

    Right now I am sitting in Martin County where Col. West ( a good man, fuck you very much DJ) won decisively. Listening to the multiple jet engines flying over my roof from the nearby military air show. We have tons of military and retired folks here making this place an oasis of patriotism and delightful neighborly company. The local races were mostly all won by Republicans who ran unopposed. We have parades, picnics and lots of red, white and blue during patriotic holidays. The bikers salute the VFWs and American Legions as they ride by. The schools are A-rated and the children are expected to volunteer to improve their community and the motto is “Character Counts in Martin County”. Churches are busy not only during services but out in the communities supporting, feeding, and paying bills for the poor who have been crushed by the leftist nightmare economy. When you hold a charity event here people actually show up and support it. Even the mild case of whiny, bitchy liberals that we have infesting our county (they can’t ever stay complete away from locusting anywhere) are not as whiny and bitchy here. So, despite the moral decay that has ushered in yet another 4 years of leftist fascist rule and the pervasive droning of the enemedia holding to their memes that black is white and conservatives need to get with the new reality, I have evidence all around me that the real America isn’t dead. Not yet. Hopeful not ever.

    I am a praying Christian. I pray for revival…or revolution. If necessary, both.

    They’ve got a chair ready for West over at Fox. He can sit between Dick Morris and one of the good looking blondes.

    It wasn’t intended Romney should win. Voter fraud was rampant and all knew it.

    Saving the Republic, if it’s to happen, will fall to the citizens.

    The only solace I can take from this election cycle is that the fuckwads engaged in supporting this massive vote fraud will be some of the first ones up against the wall when the revolution comes. This is sickening.
