Same “Corrupt Liberals That Worked Against Allen West” Committed Fraud in Miami

West Obama


The ongoing probe into the fraudulent absentee ballot request scandal that has plagued Democratic Congressman Joe Garcia, could make its way north and plop itself down on Congressman Patrick Murphy’s lap, now that ties between Garcia’s former campaign advisor and Chief of Staff, Jeffrey Garcia, and Murphy’s 2012 congressional campaign have been established.

When the story first broke that Garcia’s main-man Jeffrey Garcia along with two others were implicated in the alleged voter fraud scandal, the political community immediately turned their eyes on the possibility that this same alleged voter fraud could have been conducted in Murphy’s race against former Congressman Allen West.

With Jeffrey Garcia taking responsibility for the incident in Garcia’s race against former Congressman David Rivera, speculation that he could have simultaneously committed the same form of absentee ballot request fraud in the Murphy-West congressional race began percolating in some of South Florida’s political circles.

Republican Carlos Curbelo, a Miami-Dade School Board member, who is actively exploring a congressional run against Garcia, believes that the “same corrupt liberals” that committed fraud in Miami, “worked against Allen West,” almost implying that the possibility of the same absentee ballot fraud may have happened in the Allen West race.

The same corrupt liberals that worked against Allen West committed fraud in Florida’s 26th Congressional District. We need to stop them now.-Carlos Curbelo

While Patrick Murphy has yet to be implicated in the voter fraud scandal, West supporters, who suspected rampant voter fraud and intimidation during a drawn out general election vote recount, are patiently waiting to see if investigators will validate their voter fraud suspicions with an announcement that Jeffrey Garcia also employed the same political tactics against Allen West.

    No kidding. Liberals lie, cheat, and steal elections? Who but the really unintelligent could ever have imagined it….

    • Rich June 19, 2013 at 3:39 pm

      Excuse me, buddy, but exactly what has Karl Rove been doing for all these years, handing out lollipops?
      He only works for republicans and is as crooked as they come.
      Time to see a little daylight there, buddy.

          Read down below about the wonderful things Mr. Rove has been doing for the last 30 or so years……………then SHUT UP!!

    The only fraud committed came out of Allen West’s’ mouth. His arrogance, stupid remarks and failure of articulating any new ideas or solutions just compounded his incompetence. Instead of being a leader of substance, he excelled as the clown of rhetoric.
    To me he appeared to be trying too hard to “fit” in by being the town idiot…….

    • alecj June 19, 2013 at 3:48 pm

      Really, American hero Allen West made stupid remarks? Please repeat them for me. I havent heard them.

      Do you realize who your entire description sounds like

      “His arrogance, stupid remarks and failure of articulating any new ideas or solutions just compounded his incompetence. Instead of being a leader of substance, he excelled as the clown of rhetoric.”

      That IS Barack Obama.

      Just thought it was ironic.

      • Rich June 21, 2013 at 5:04 pm

        Let’s try the one about the “communists” in the House and Senate first.

        When will you all learn that just because someone looks at the world differently than you do it doesn’t make them “communists” or “socialists” just like being conservative doesn’t make one more patriotic than being liberal or progressive does………………do you believe for just one second that those brave souls in Arlington National or any of those other graveyards across Europe or the Pacific Islands cared for one second whether or not the guy in the foxhole next to him was conservative or liberal?
        This foolish posturing gets us NOWHERE other than more and more screwed by those who are laughing at us bickering all the way to the bank while we argue about stupid things while they take all the money!

    • Robert June 19, 2013 at 5:22 pm

      Allen West is a real war hero. He served his country with honor and dignity while you most likely attended a liberal college and spent your time organizing an occupy protest and smoking crack. Miami is controlled by a corrupt government and the case will never be properly investigated.

  3. Stan Lee June 19, 2013 at 11:18 am

    When any sane, prudent, American evaluates Allen West, that person has to question, “How can a man of such high caliber lose a district’s vote after working so hard or that district?” Certainly, there has to be a question of foul-play in voting count. I applaud those officials who seek the truth about it!
    The Democrats are inured to the public just rolling over and accepting things without a murmur. Allen West has been cheated, therefore so has the will of the people. That political party which allows its politicians to cheat a system designed to be honest, has no regard for the will of the people. It is solely interested in power anyway it can get it.

    • sicandtired June 19, 2013 at 11:38 am

      It happened all over the country this past voting cycle. Who controlled the voting devises?

      • Patriot June 19, 2013 at 2:14 pm

        Soros? Thought one of his companies had been contracted with by OWEbama, personally. It’s an overseas company, Spanish, I believe.

        • Kansas Patriot June 19, 2013 at 4:46 pm

          That same company is taking a bigger role in the Congressional and Senatorial elections next year. Eric Holder won’t do anything about it so the beat [down] goes on…

      • Rich June 19, 2013 at 3:44 pm

        Why do you guys always claim you were cheated when you lose?
        Maybe the voters wanted a candidate who might actually do something other than just run his mouth??

        As to “controlling the voting devices”, a good many of them come from Diebold whose owner is a diehard conservative who has vowed again and again to do everything possible to see conservatives win and progressives defeated.

        When are you guys going to realize that the majority of the nation is basically FISCALLY conservative but SOCIALLY liberal and don’t want all of the phony moralizing that conservatives have made a trademark.

        • Robert June 19, 2013 at 5:26 pm

          Who in the Government is a Fiscally conservative and a Democrat at the same time..

          • Rich June 20, 2013 at 1:16 pm

            I didn’t say in the government, bagger.

            I said the majority of the PEOPLE. Can you understand what you read?

  4. lowie June 19, 2013 at 11:25 am

    Long before the election, Democratic operatives agreed that the outcome of the election hinged on what happens in South Florida. Now I know what these people meant by that statement…cheating. Over throwing an election should come with severe penalty and many people should go to jail!. This is nothing new in our elections, but when a small part of a state decides and election should raise suspicions on our election boards and who mans them. It’s a sorry state of affairs when our elections turn into something that we see throughout our southern hemisphere. It’s time to clean up this mess in south Florida and clean house of all who participate in “dirty tricks” of our electoral process.

    • Rich June 19, 2013 at 3:48 pm

      Think about this.
      The election officials are ELECTED.
      If they are corrupt, prove it!
      If conservatives are such a majority as you all seem to believe, why aren’t there diehard conservative election officials?
      I would hope that whatever ideology an election official espouses that above all their allegiance is to honesty.

      Were you complaining this loudly in 2000 when Florida cost Mr. Gore the Presidency and probably didn’t give an honest accounting of the votes then? Were you calling for Ms. Harris to be investigated?

      Thank you.

      • Robert June 19, 2013 at 7:55 pm

        Please look up an election map of the Florida 2012 elections. You will notice the blue areas are the areas controlled by Democratic Election Officials. The Democrats also took the large College areas such as Miami and Tallahassee. We know for a fact that Eric Holder will not prosecute any complaints against a
        Democrat involved in any kind of election fraud. Look at His actions in Philadelphia in the 2008 election harrasment caught on film (still on U tube) They already pled guilty but Holder told them just to stay away until the 2012 elections and all charges would be dropped. When asked about it by the press He stated these are our people we do not prosecute them. You can look all this up on your computer. All fact.

  5. sicandtired June 19, 2013 at 11:37 am

    No suprise. Liberal…corrupt…same same. The only thing a scummy liberal is interested in is controlling others. Just look at Illinois

    • Rich June 19, 2013 at 3:50 pm

      OH, I get it.
      Conservatives are totally hones and uncorruptable, right?

      Where the hell have YOU been, buddy? Karl Rove has made a CAREER out of working to steal elections but since he works for republicans you think nothing of that.

      Scummy liberal, eh? I guess we must consider the source…………………LOL!!

      • Robert June 19, 2013 at 5:30 pm

        Please give me one example of an Election Darl Rove “fixed” and supply some proof like more people voting than are on the election rolls or criminal charges in any State. Or “finding” more election results in the trunk of a car then more in a closet.,

        • Rich June 20, 2013 at 1:21 pm

          You’ve got it wrong.
          Pres Nixon tried to “fix” the election in 1972, remember?

          Karl Rove is the master of negative advertising with “dark money” from undisclosed ultra wealthy donors and sneaky electoral tricks.

          As Rove joins the ranks of discredited politicians who resign “in order to spend more time with family,” a retrospective of his dirty tricks might be in order. Much is attributed to Rove, dubbed “Bush’s Brain” by Texas journalists Wayne Slater and James Moore, yet very little sticks to the man. Bearing in mind that we presume innocence until guilt is proven, read on:

          •In 1970, College Republican Rove stole letterhead from the Illinois Democratic campaign of Alan Dixon, and used it to invite hundreds of people to Dixon’s new headquarters opening, promising “free beer, free food, girls and a good time for nothing,” disrupting the event.

          •In 1973, Rove ran for chairman of the College Republicans. He challenged the front-runner’s delegates, throwing the national convention into disarray, after which both he and his opponent, Robert Edgeworth, claimed victory. The dispute was resolved when Rove was selected through the direct order of the chairman of the Republican National Committee, who at the time was none other than George H.W. Bush.

          •In 1986, while working for Texas Republican gubernatorial hopeful William Clements, Rove claimed that his personal office had been bugged, most likely by the campaign of incumbent Democratic Gov. Mark White. Nothing was proved, but the negative press, weeks before the election, helped Rove’s man win a narrow victory. FBI agent Greg Rampton removed the bug, disrupting any attempt to properly investigate who planted it.

          •When Rove advised on George W. Bush’s 1994 race for governor of Texas against Democratic incumbent Ann Richards, a persistent whisper campaign in conservative East Texas wrongly suggested that Richards was a lesbian. According to Texas journalist Lou Dubose: “No one ever traced the character assassination to Rove. Yet no one doubts that Rove was behind it. It’s a process on which he holds a patent. Identify your opponent’s strength, and attack it so relentlessly that it becomes a liability. Richards was admired because she promised and delivered a ‘government that looked more like the people of the state.’ That included the appointment of blacks, Hispanics and gays and lesbians. Rove made that asset a liability.”

          •After John McCain thumped George W. Bush in the 2000 New Hampshire primary, with 48 percent of the vote to Bush’s 30 percent, a massive smear campaign was launched in South Carolina, a key battleground. TV attack ads from third groups and anonymous fliers circulated, variously suggesting that McCain’s experience as a prisoner of war in Vietnam left him mentally scarred with an uncontrollable temper, that his wife, Cindy, abused drugs and that he had an African-American “love child.” In fact, the McCains adopted their daughter Bridget from a Bangladesh orphanage run by Mother Teresa.

          •According to the investigation of Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald, Rove played a central role in the outing of undercover CIA operative Valerie Plame to columnist Robert Novak and former Time magazine reporter Matthew Cooper, in retaliation for her husband Joe Wilson’s accusation that the Bush administration falsely claimed that Saddam Hussein sought uranium in Niger.

          •Rove has ignored subpoenas to testify before Congress regarding the Justice Department scandal of the firing of nine U.S. attorneys. He skipped a hearing on improper use of RNC e-mail accounts by White House staff, which allowed them to skirt the Presidential Records Act. Rove claims he enjoys executive privilege, which travels with him as he leaves the White House.

          These are but some of the dirty tricks attributed to Karl Rove. We are to believe that Rove, born Christmas Day, 1950, is retiring to write books. Former Texas Agriculture Commissioner and populist firebrand Jim Hightower describes Rove’s departure as “a rat jumping off a sinking ship.” But arch-Rove watcher Wayne Slater of The Dallas Morning News knows better. He notes that Rove and his wife have built a house in the Florida Panhandle — the “Republican Riviera” — and that former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will be 59 in 2012, a ripe age for a run for the White House.

          Regardless, the art and science of the political dirty tricks, learned by Rove in the Nixon years and perfected by him in the George W. Bush White House, will be with us for years to come.

            I see nothing in your rant that shows Karl Rove “stole” any elections. Nice try, though. It does sound like you did a cut and paste from a source like ThinkProgress.

  7. OldmanRick June 19, 2013 at 12:59 pm

    Yep, more than likely the dims plotted against Col West. However, let us not forget that the establishment, old boys club, go along to get along repugnuts divided up West’s district to make it more difficult for him to win reelection. Seems they didn’t like the Col. making waves. It upset their rice bowls.

    If there is one man worthy to be president, it’s Col. Allen West.

    • Patriot June 19, 2013 at 2:17 pm

      Completely agree, we would vote for Col. West in a heartbeat. We’d even carry the banner for him. He’s so common sense smart, intelligent, and speaks to us, not at us.

      • Rich June 20, 2013 at 1:23 pm

        What did Mr. West accomplish in the House?

        What bills did he write?

        As I recall his main “claim to fame” was silly posturing about “communists” in the House and Senate.

        • Rick Caird June 22, 2013 at 2:26 pm

          Rich, first term Congressman rarely get to write any bills. But, you are mistaken is you thing the measure of a man is writing bills. I am much more interested in stopping legislation than writing more.

  8. Carlos June 19, 2013 at 2:13 pm

    None of this will mean crap unless Garcia & Murphy are removed from office and prosecuted. One of the FL RINOs who gerrymandered West’s district was lightweight Spkr. Will Weatherford, who will most certainly run for Gov. or US Sen. He must be defeated and his political career ended, like we did with Reptile Charlie. WW made it his personal vendetta on Miami to prevent a vote on the bill to upgrade sun Life Stadium.
    S. Fla. voters must remember that and punish him when he runs.

  9. Jean cooper June 19, 2013 at 2:18 pm

    All persons that violated ANY election laws should be jailed. It should start at the polling places and go up. No matter how small the infraction everyone of them should be jailed, fined and forever forbidden from participating in the election process. Their names and addresses should be displayed in the print media, digital media and streaming media. Our elections should be 100% fair without the crooked ideologists that think they are above the law

  10. Florence Mannino June 19, 2013 at 7:28 pm

    The liberals are so afraid of Col.Allen West they will do anything to smear his name to keep him out of politics.I have news for them he will return with flying colors.
    A loyal supporter.

    GO WEST!!!!! 2016

  11. DebraP June 19, 2013 at 8:29 pm

    The fraud against Allen West was committed on behalf of the Pukes, Pinkos and Progressives…and SHOULD BE PROSECUTED!

    • Rich June 21, 2013 at 2:57 pm

      Show your PROOF!!

      Did you ever think that just maybe the voters didn’t like the thought of Mr. West district shopping in hopes of finding an easier district to run in?
      Maybe the voters didn’t like the way he runs his mouth?

      Politics is not about being a jerk. Maybe you didn’t learn that. Politics is working together to find the best way to run our country. Both sides have good ideas and important concerns and this “my way or the highway” B.S. is not how you reach a consensus and run the country.
      Sorry to burst your bubble with a dose of reality but that’s how it is!!

  12. anne brown June 21, 2013 at 4:03 pm

    Rich … re your Gore/Bush statement. History .. in the midst of the furor over the Florida election results, five newspapers (NY Times, LA Times, etc) swooped into Florida to challenge and to disprove the election’s results. They left with their tails between their legs because they found that Bush had legally won with the votes. Of course, that did not make the headlines that the low-information voter could recognize.

    • Rich June 22, 2013 at 11:48 am

      Oh, watching Faux News makes YOU well informed?

      In your dreams, maybe!!

  13. Virgilio Alvarez June 21, 2013 at 10:56 pm

    Regarding elections, it is my understanding that the state governments control what system is used for the elections in the respective states.

    Having said that, I believe we (Republicans) have about 30 governorships and just as many state houses and senates, although I do not know the exact number.

    Unless and until states go back to the paper ballots and dump all the electronic ballot machines, we will lose this country. They will cheat more and more. The Marxocrats have now full control of all the polling places. They have taken them over.

    Number 2, until all the hundreds of Tea Party and all sort of name conservative organization decide to hold a convention and unite their forces, we will be wasting a lot effort and money in duplicate pursuits such as advertising, fund raising, etc. and competing against each other.

    I would call that super organization E Pluribus Unum Many uniting into one. An accurate translation of the motto is “From Many, One” or Out of Many, One” – a phrase that captures the symbolism.

    Just my two cents

    • Rich June 22, 2013 at 11:51 am

      Why can’t you just accept that the majority of the country DOES NOT agree with the hard right conservative agenda?
      Is this too hard for you to comprehend?
      It is time to stop making excuses and to realize that the vast majority of Americans are FISCALLY conservative but NOT socially conservative and don’t give two hoots about all your silly holier than thou BS and posturing.
