Allen West - being stonewalled?

I haven't kept up with what's going on with Allen West in Florida, but if what Rush says is true below - there's something wrong. Something scary. This is the United States of America. How sad is it that we can't get voting machines to work right, and we have people miscounting votes, and all this voter fraud.

Outrage Perpetrated Against Allen West

RUSH:  Folks, there is an outrage being perpetrated against Allen West up in St. Lucie County.  He's trailing the Democrat Patrick Murphy by 2,000 votes.  He wants a recount.  "His current victory margin is just large enough to avoid triggering an automatic recall of all precincts and all votes."

But there's a problem.

"Gertrude Walker, the 32-year-veteran election supervisor of St. Lucie County...has spent much of the last two weeks explaining why her office completely botched the count. She admitted that her office had acted in 'haste' in issuing election results, and that 'mistakes were made.' Among her mistakes was failing to count 40 of the 94 precincts under her jurisdiction on Election Night - and then counting the other 54 twice. Indeed. On Friday, her office announced it had 'discovered' 304 additional early votes left in a box. None had been counted."

But she's now in the hospital and is unavailable for comment.  I don't know what a full-fledged recount would show for Allen West, but this ought to be taken care of.  They need to get an accurate, honest tally up there.  This is a plus-Republican district.  Obama got, what, 104% of the vote up there?  Obama got 104% of the vote in St. Lucie County.  There's something really, really odd about it.  It would be a shame to lose Allen West.  You talk about a genuine solid American hero.  This is something that needs to be addressed, and the count needs to happen honestly and legitimately up there once and for all.

RUSH:  On the Allen West recount, we have a Republican governor here in Florida, right?  His name is Rick Scott, right?  I wonder, can Governor Scott do anything about this? It seems like rogue activity in St. Lucie County.  Maybe go up there and go to the McDonald's and order some fries and not get any and then call 911, the White House, and just call attention, but there's something up there out of whack.
