I was scanning Beck's site TheBlaze when I saw a story about Allen West taking the lead in West Palm Beach as FL election officials recopy the ballots? I've never heard of this before.
But a Republican observer who has been monitoring the counting process said West pulled ahead in Palm Beach County on Thursday as the initial count continues. Ballot printing errors led to ballots that could not be fed through scanners in some areas, so Florida election workers have been forced to reproduce their contents onto new ballots that can be read properly, the observer said. As the votes are counted for the first time, West has taken a slim lead.OK, I could see this being done under very specific and controlled circumstances, but it sounds like these guys are flying by the seat of their pants and filling in ballots on the fly. How much do you want to bet the original are being shredded?
