Al Sharpton supports local Mayor recount but against Allen West recount though both in St. Lucie County

Hypocrite and Democrat hack Al Sharpton cites the fact that Murphy’s lead over West is “way outside the margin to justify a recount” and therefore he is against a recount in a race that is “unworthy of a recount”. But West is only .08 percentage points away from having a mandatory recount. That’s not even 1 percentage point and isn’t “way outside the margin”.



But in a local mayoral race where the votes are within .05 points thus forcing a mandatory recount, Sharpton makes clear he supports that recount. Oh I should note that after the early votes were recounted, the progressive candidate is down 61 votes and that’s when Sharpton decided to voice his support.

Note that both of the races are in St. Lucie County with the same canvassing board and the same Supervisor of Elections “Gertrude Walker”.

REV. AL SHARPTON SPEAKS OUT AGAINST A RECOUNT IN THE CONGRESSIONAL RACE BETWEEN ALLEN WEST AND PATRICK MURPHY BUT VOICES SUPPORT FOR A FULL RECOUNT IN THE LOCAL MAYORAL ELECTION

New York, NY (November 14, 2012)—Reverend Al Sharpton, President of National Action Network (NAN) and host of PoliticsNation on MSNBC, says he is supporting NAN’s St. Lucie, Florida, Chapter in calling for integrity in the local elections and a recount in the Mayor’s race, but opposes a recount in the Allen West/Patrick Murphy race.

According to Rev. Sharpton: “We want to see the integrity of the election process upheld on a local level but we unilaterally oppose a recount in the national race. Clearly, Representative-Elect Murphy’s lead over Congressman Allen West is way outside the margin to justify a recount. NAN supports the local chapter led by Rev. William Richardson, III and others in calling for a full recount in the local St. Lucie County Mayor’s race as we have spent months calling attention to irregularities and suppression in Florida. However, the local legitimacy of voter protection should not be overshadowed by a national race unworthy of a recount.”

Two words. “TAWANA BRAWLEY”. He was a race hustler from the start, and he knew the rape charge against the cops was false, but still ran with it to keep him in the spotlight. Odd, i don’t recall an apology when the truth came out because he was already on a flight to his next fake racism campaign stop.

Imagine that, when they recount the votes in a county you lost by 10.9% they find more votes for your opponent. Allen West fell behind by another 241 votes after the recount Sunday.

It is racism for Allen West to demand a recount over suspected voter fraud! Racism I tell you, Sharpton is the racist and he himself should get off the public payroll (Yes, Obama has the taxpayer’s footing the bill).

The other thing missing from this discussion is if Allen West wants a recount the it is not only St. Lucie County. It is also Martin and Palm Beach Counties that would have to recount if he wants a full recount. I also believe that if he wants a full recount, since it didn’t reach the .5%, would have to be paid for by Allen West.

Kevin
Guest

Actually, it did reach the .5%

P
Guest

Actually it hasn’t. If you go to the three counties Supervisor of Elections websites the numbers stand at 50.29% for Murphy and 49.71% for West. That makes it a difference of .58%. Allen West has only asked for a recount of the early ballots in St. Lucie County only. He lost St. Lucie county by 12,895 votes or 10.9%. To win he would need 5.1% of the early vote to be incorrect to win. Only 35.8% of the vote in this election was in St. Lucie county.

I don’t know where you are getting your “information” but facts do matter.

You can quote all you want but when democraps are involved there is a large margin of “Fudge” factor, cheating and lying. Allen was way ahead and at 1 am, 4000 votes dumped into the system???? BS!

Guest

So you claim it reached .5% I prove it doesn’t so you change to the Democrats cheated. Good argument there. St. Lucie County was the last of the three counties to count all their vote. If a county you lose by 10.9% or 12,895 votes reports last you will see a big swing. That is not proof of cheating. The election not turning out the way you think it should is not proof of cheating. not understanding how the results are reported. If Allen West thinks there was widespread cheating why does he only want 31.6% (37,379 ballots) of the vote recounted in one of three counties?

I’m still trying to figure out how they had a 141% turnout. As Obama was fond of saying the math doesn’t add up. I guees it’s liberal math.

note* – turnout percentages will show over 100% due to a two page ballot. the tabulation system (GEMS) provides voter turnout as equal to the total cards cast in the election divided by the number of registered voters. also note that some voters chose not to return by mail the second card containing the amendments.

The turnout was actually closer to 70.46% not the 141% reported

Ah lurved ta watch Al-Phonz back when he tried to re-start the Miami riots(he had been busy humping Tawana)…He showed up in Liberty City, preachin’:”Mah bwuddewz and sistewz..let’s keep killing da white devils!”

Surrounded by a bunch of piccaninnies, Al-Phonz suddenly found himseff pelted by stones by niggarz that had just realized they had burnt to the ground their own neighborhood, not that of the hated crackarz…(who wanna be shot at by these armed to the teeth white demons? Safer to burn these Lebanese Ay-rab shop keepers in da hood!))

At the time, Al the Fonz weighted about five hundred pounds, was five by five and had to waddle away as fast as possible, with a hail of pebbles bouncing on his taut hide like off a huge beach ball!!!

Yeah, people would the wrong impression of you, Rep West. You stand for good, honest and honorable…Sharpton just the opposite. Rep West, you are the good about America, the hope…the real hope of America, not that BS the president ran on…Sharpton represents the slimmy, the underworld, the thing that is not good about America. Be thrilled that this phony race-baiter lost his opportunity to try on good for while.

I admire you, Rep West, and I am certain that a lot of Americans do!

The leftists can only win via corrupt practices and tactics. They are so hard-wired, that “corrupt” has no meaning to them anymore; it is their norm.

Likewise, the word “racist” has no meaning because the left has used it whenever they cannot counter the reason and logic of the right, and soon they will have to find another word to replace “racist” in order to get their minions all whipped up.

PLEASE do not call that man reverend! He, Jesse James Jackson and others should be aware that scripture says “Holy and Reverend is His name” – referring to God. Calling themselves reverend is stealing a name that belongs solely to God. But then neither have ever read the scriptures much or they would know that.
Besides that, with morals of an alley-cat they should be ashamed to take that name.

“But West is only .08 percentage points away from having a mandatory recount.” So, the law does not call for a mandatory recount in West’s case.

“But in a local mayoral race where the votes are within .05 points thus forcing a mandatory recount, Sharpton makes clear he supports that recount.” So, the law requires that a recount be done in this case.

I don’t get it – what you’re saying is that Sharpton supports the law? Or, are you arguing for mandatory recounts more often?

If they go ahead with this recount then they need to do a country-wide recount on Obama and the massive voter fraud. It is common knowledge that this happened in the majority of the states where Obama won, Ohio, Florida, Nevada, Pennsylvania etc… I’d love to hand check all of these ballets because I guarantee that Romney truly won by the “true and ethical” vote. Whatever it is….they better fix it before the next election if our country is still intact and Obama hasn’t taken us down with 4 more years of his faulty leadership.
