Crist Weights in on PBC Voting Fiasco

September 11th, 2008 by flanews

Governor Charlie Crist said he wont call for a special election to solve the Palm Beach County voting fiasco. A recount in a county judicial race turned up 3,500 fewer votes than the original tally. Some think the votes may have been accidentally thrown away. One candidate asked the governor for a special election. Crist said he considered it but thinks a judge should make the final decision.

I reviewed it with out General Council. My opinion is that the people of Palm Beach County did their duty. They voted. They showed up. So I want to respect the vote that they took. I understand there will be a difference of opinion between the two candidates. It seems to me a tryer of fact will be best to find out what the facts are and that would be a judge, said Crist.

The losing candidate in the race is suing the Florida Elections Canvassing Commission, the Secretary of State, and the Division of Elections.
