FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Murphy Attempts to Suppress the Vote in Allen West Retabulation


Stuart, FL – West for Congress campaign manager Tim Edson released the following statement regarding Patrick Murphy’s lawyers’ attempt to get the 19th Circuit Court Judge to disallow the retabulation of early votes agreed to by the St. Lucie County Canvassing Board:

“In a last-ditch effort to suppress the vote, Murphy’s lawyers submitted sloppy and incomplete papers to the Court this morning to try to strong-arm the judge into preventing today’s retabulation already underway. The Murphy team’s motion is procedurally and substantively lacking. With every action attempted, Murphy demonstrates a complete lack of respect and utter disregard for the voters of St. Lucie County.

Murphy’s efforts bring to mind the dark times in our nation’s history when politicians tried to manipulate the law to suppress the votes, and we are appalled by Murphy’s apparent contempt for the voting rights of citizens to have their ballots accurately and fairly tabulated.

Murphy knows there are votes that have not been counted, but he’s taking legal action to ensure the results are certified anyway. Perhaps the Justice Department should investigate Murphy’s attempt to steal himself a seat in Congress at the expense of the voters in St. Lucie County.”

    I cannot believe how people would not want a recount if there is any doubts on the results, we should be keeping an eye on these people that fight a recount.

    Do you really think our DOJ as it is today would inforce any law that it did not Politically think was detrimental to the Democratic Party regardless of the Constitution?
    Constitutional American Law and justice is a dead issue under this AG and administration.

    Recount? Justice? May just be a thing of the past. Constitutional American Law and justice is a dead issue under this AG and administration. If it doesn’t suit that Democratic party it ain’ta gonna happen!

    When the Justice Dept is acting on behalf of the President’s agenda, they aren’t going to do what’s just.

    Of course Murphy would stoop so low to stifle the vote. He is a liberal. What more can you expect from the party that digs up peacefully sleeping dead people so they can vote? He may also be trying to avoid having to wear egg all over his face. He recently attended the “newcomers orientation” for freshmen congressmen in Washington. When the vote is recounted and Murphy loses, his recent trip will not only speak to a waste of time and effort, it will be pretty embarrasing. Go West!

    Post & Send to ALL YOU CAN Right Now! This election does not get decided until Mid-December when the Electoral College cast their votes. Pressure Congress!!!

    According to Article II of the U.S. Constitution AND the 12th Amendment – if 1/3rd of the States do not cast their votes in the Electoral College — then the election falls onto the House OF Representatives, NOT the Senate, to choose the President.

    This means — if we pressure Congressmen, State Party Officials, and ALL groups such as Tea Party Patriots, Heritage Foundation, etc., to call on ALL States to NOT have their Electors cast their vote – then the House of Reps CAN choose the next President!!!

    I think it’s a shame that we have to FORCE people to be honest. Why wouldn’t they want a fair and honest count of this election? (that was a rhetorical question) So all I want is honesty. If Allen West wins it’s because he had to FIGHT for honesty and if he loses (God forbid) at least we know it was an honest election. I just think it’s a shame it has to come to this.
