Official Recount Petition Filed In Nevada By Rocky De La Fuente; Vows Florida Recount Up Next

Tyler Durden's picture

Just when you thought the post-election recount circus couldn't get any more ridiculous, it has.  Per NBC, Roque "Rocky" De La Fuente, an independent 2016 U.S. presidential candidate, has officially filed a recount petition with the Secretary of State of Nevada requesting recounts in 93 precincts.  Rocky won 2,552 votes in the state of Nevada or roughly 0.23% of the total. 

Under Nevada law, officials are only required to recount the votes of the petitioner and the winner of the election.  Then, only if a discrepancy of 1% or more is found in vote totals does a full statewide recount occur.

"...My only interest is to create a nationwide awareness of the vulnerability of our election system and to do everything possible to assure that your vote counts for the candidate for whom it is cast," he said.


Under Nevada law, any candidate can request a recount of the votes, but officials would only determine the number of votes received for the requesting candidate and the person who won the election. The requester would also have to cover the estimated cost of a recount in advance.


In De La Fuente's petition to the secretary of state's office, obtained by reporter Jon Ralston, he asks for recounts in 93 precincts, or about 5 percent of the statewide precincts. All but eight are in Clark County.


The recount would have to find a discrepancy of at least 1 percent for either Clinton or De La Fuente from the votes tallied in the original canvass to move forward. The secretary of state would then determine if a full statewide recount should be ordered, according to state law.


A recount is required to begin five days after a request is made, and it must be finished five days after it begins.

As a reminder, Hillary was the projected winner in Nevada by about 26,000 votes or 2.4%.

Nevada Results


Rocky has also vowed to launch a recount in Florida.

But unlike Jill Stein who launched a massive fundraising scam to fund her recount efforts, Rocky has asked Nevada to just throw the charges on his "AMEX."


Here is the full Nevada petition as filed by Rocky:

The revolution is starting. The people want Hillary, and there’s nothing bigoted Trump supporters can do to stop it.

FACT: Russia stole our election

FACT: Hillary won the popular vote

FACT: Trump supporters used violence and intimidation and the voting booths

This result is not legitimate, and needs to be overturned. Trump supporters need to accept that they lost and accept Hillary as our next President.

Lack of capacity to reason + R-Selective breeding strategy = tendency to initiate force.

It is necessary therefore, necessary to preemptively protect ourselves (and the planet) from the initiatory force of r-selective communist rodents, until they learn that being Communist is immoral and therefore, unacceptable.

These tearrists simply want to destroy America and all the good things it stands for. These people like Jill Stein are the biggest threat to American Democracy.


Trump wil need to Drain the Swamp big time when he gets into office. Everything from the doj and fbi, to these treasonous radicals.

As an aside, in the name of the "democratic process" Donald Trump or Congress should appoint a special prosecutor to clear the criminal cloud over Hillary Clinton's head. I am sure she would like a complete investigation so her name and the Clinton Foundation can be cleared.

FACT: MDB didn't even bother to vote and actually discouraged his two and a half followers from voting as per his "website" because he was so overly sure that Killary would win anyway in a landslide. Now he is another crybaby. And a particularly dumb one at that.

MDB realizes that he's a total laughingstock these days after his clever predictions are all turning out to be wrong.  He now trolls as fukidontknow and pretends to be an MDB hater.  Yet still posts links to his moronic accredited times website.  What an imbecile!

Revolution against what exactly? These liberals dont have a fucking clue. 

These lefties wouldnt recognize an oppressive, statist govt even if that govt sapped them of their wealth, vasty expanded its powers, created overreaching laws, instigated race wars, promoted class warfare, seized control of private industries such as healthcare, regulated education so generations of kids are propagandized, controlled the media to propagandize the masses, and took nefarious steps to ensure it stays in power by allowing masses of illegal immigrants to enter and remain in the country to obtain favorable votes.

liberals are too stupid to recognize WE have the moral highground to revolt, and we have, and we've succeeded by getting trump in office.

To hell with all who cant discern how our country would reach the point of no return with another liberal administration presided by HRC

Hmm, your trolls have gotten a bit too, well, obvious MDB. They used to be far more subtle, which was great because to the uninitiated here, it was an effective lure.

We need a bit more of the old MDB's technique. It was entertaining reading the responses to those old posts!

How?  If the ballot boxes were stuffed, so to speak, a recount only serves to recount the votes plus the fake votes.  If they weren't stuffed, then it only serves to recount actual votes.  Find hard evidence of voter fraud, or kindly fuck off. 

fx's picture

Wrong. At least two ballot boxes will be "uncovered" in each of those states containing tens of thousands of previously "overlooked" ballots out of which no less than 110% were cast for Clinton.

Voters don't win elections. Counters do.

Quite frankly, I hope that these recounts are about the write-in votes that are not counted. In Texas (for sure) and at least some if not most, other states the only votes that are tabulated are the ones for candidates on the ballots or on the posted list of "approved" candidates.

My vote for Ron Paul in the 2008 and 2012 general elections were not tabulated. There were said to be 4 million Republican undervotes in the 2012 presidential race. What would you want to bet that there were 4 million write-in votes for Ron Paul that were lawfully discarded. This is a completely stupid rule because it cuts off one of the very few routes to a peaceful revolution rather than one that goes hot.

This rule probably has to do with the technological limits of the electronic voting machines. Not smart and not right. This issue needs to be put before the public. I'm hoping that the attempted recounts will drag the problem into the public's line of sight.

fx's picture

The real Rocky would have done the recount all by himself immediately instead of paying money to some dimwits. Oh wait, he wouldn't actually even have bothered about elections and the like. And even if, then for sure, he would have gotten way more than some silly 0.23 % in the first place.

Id wager a years pay that there were more than 100,000 illegals who voted for Hillary in Nevada (clark county alone.) That puts Nevada in Trump's column.


Every illegal who votes takes away the vote of a tax paying citizen.


Id be good with a public execution of any SJW, do gooder or scumbag pol who facilitates voting by illegals

j0nx's picture

Anything having to do with election fraud and tampering should be a capital offence if convicted. From lying Twitter, Facebook and Google execs to MSM lackeys to lowly illegals or felons that vote, nobody should be exempt from that. A fair and honest election is the bedrock of our society and there should be ZERO tolerance of anyone who tries to usurp that process through lies or deeds.
