Countdown Clocks

Twitter’s wingnuts are screaming bloody murder at this writing after Florida’s St. Lucie County failed to finish their court-ordered recount by today’s noon deadline, prompting Patrick Murphy’s campaign to claim final victory over Rep. Allen West. 

The Palm Beach Post reports that West’s supporters have charged into the St. Lucie election office screaming, “Count our votes!” West’s lawyers have raced to a judge’s office to demand an injunction against the state deadline. Numerous West supporters are claiming on Twitter that the county deliberately sabotaged a tabulation machine in order to miss the deadline. More on this later today as the story develops.
