This guy is a crazy loser, but I'd love to be one of his lawyers. They must be dragging down some big bucks for basically doing nothing.

Obviously, Florida need additional abacuses.

Florida demonstrates once again why they have their own Fark tag.

Now Republicans will claim that Murphy demanded recount after recount after recount until he finally won. This will happen, I guarantee it.

Edson, however, said other problems arose this morning, when the recount resumed at 8 a.m. The recount showed 900 voters cast ballots in precinct 93, where there are 7 registered voters, Edson said.

You know, I wonder if that's related from the voter roll purges the Republican governor Rick Scott instituted, which means that those people had to cast provisional ballots.

Florida law does allow an exemption to the deadline in an emergency and West's attorney are expected to argue that the exemption applies.

That exemption defines emergency as "any occurrence, or threat thereof, whether accidental, natural, or caused by human beings, in war or in peace, that results or may result in substantial injury or harm to the population or substantial damage to or loss of property to the extent it will prohibit an election officer's ability to conduct a safe and orderly election."


OK, West, you farkstick -- what kind of "emergency" are you basing this argument on? You gonna go with the "all Democrats are commies" line again, and see if the red-baiting approach works? Maybe you could go fire a gun next to the Supervisor of Elections' head, and claim that her hearing loss constitutes an emergency.

You repulsive, lying war criminal. You lost because you were a repugnant piece of trash and the voters knew it.

There we go.

Allen West being booted out on his ass is emergency enough for the clown, it seems

That would be amusingly poetic justice. Anyway, the supremes ruled on this back in 2000 - when it's over, it's over.
It would be hilarious if West managed to get the issue in front of them again. Watching Scalia trying to find a way to flip-flop on his own ruling would be delicious.
 
2012-11-18 04:56:42 PM
As much as I want West to lose, I want him to lose legitimately, so I do want the count done properly. But if he does demand a recount and still loses, maybe he should have to pay for it.

He did lose legitimately. The recount is legally over, and he lost. It's done.

The problem is they have Count Count counting for then qand that takes a while what with all the laughing involved.

It's funny to see the righties complain about Florida's uncertain elections when the conservatives have been in total control in Florida for quite some time. They sure didn't mind Florida's uncertain elections when they were winning.

Looks like West and Tebow have something in common; losing.

Some of you farkwits seem to think that West being a ginormous douchebag is somehow relevant. It isn't.

A change in the count of eight hundredths of one percent would trigger a complete recount.

FTA: Last Sunday, the canvassing board agree to recount ballots cast the last three days of early voting after election officials revealed that machines had been unable to read some of the electronic memory cartridges. West's attorneys then sought a recount of all early ballots after the elections office conceded to double-counting some ballots and ignoring others on election night.

So you would at least want those three days worth of early voting ballots recounted. But:

FTA: Others commented to elections officials, blaming them for ending the recount last night at 10 p.m. because the security system would be triggered if the counting continued.

Seriously? You couldn't find someone who could reset the security system? Or just call the police department and tell them to ignore the alarm?

We didn't count some ballots, and double-counted some ballots. And then we stalled until three days before the deadline, and then we, uh, couldn't find the alarm code and so we couldn't stay late and finish.

Yeah, that sounds totally legit. Plus West is a douche, so that makes it double legit.

Really, Farkers? Really?

Don't ask us. Ask the SCOTUS. According to them, when it's over, it's over.
Maybe Scalia et al would like to revisit their ruling.
 
2012-11-18 05:39:08 PM
So, you can't have a recount if it takes too long. Might as well flip a coin instead of having an election.

I can picture his opponent showing up for the first day of work, only to find Allen West still occupying his desk because the recount wasn't legit or whatever. If there's anyone crazy enough to pull that kind of stunt, it's definitely this douche-cock.

Abacuses? Those are killing American jobs. We just need enough hard-working, red-blooded Americans with 10 fingers and 10 toes, and we'll get those votes counted one way or another.
