Ugh... After Loss, Florida Rep. West Wants Ballots, Voting Machines Impounded

After Loss, Florida Rep. West Wants Ballots, Voting Machines Impounded

Read more: http://swampland.time.com/2012/11/08/after-loss-florida-rep-west-wants-ballots-voting-machines-impounded/

Does anyone know anything about this race?

"The article says Murphy had 50.4 percent of the vote, giving him a margin of about three-quarters of a percentage point. That is above the threshold for a recount under state law."

Can he win in court?

1. No, and the judge will sanction him $1 million

 

payable out of his own pockets, not his PAC or campaign account.

4. While I would love to see him defeated

there are still thousands of absentee ballots to be counted and sadly absentee ballots tend to favor republicans....On the bright side, my ex-husband is a republican who voted for Romney but split his ballot to vote for Murphy and Nelson, and my son voted straight Democratic, both voted by absentee ballot...so perhaps there is hope.

5. don't forget provisional ballots that will surely be democratic

There are also thousands of provisional ballots that need to be verified and counted.

And seeing as how the GOP went out of their way to make as many blacks have to fill out provisonal ballots, then you would be right to assume that the provisionals will go to Obama.

7. The truth about provisional ballots

is that they are rarely counted. More often than not, they are given out to keep peace...
