He could try firing his handgun near a voter's head.

He has really gone downhill since he stopped playing Batman.

FTA: However, unless the court orders a recount, Murphy's lead is currently outside the legally mandate level for a recount. An election must finish within a half-point to go to a state-mandate recount.

buh-bye, war criminal. but don't worry; i'm sure you'll have your own talk show on fox soon.

But he was assured by Fox News that his seat was safe! Surely Fox News is more trustworthy than those criminally negligent election officials!

Allen West is some scary. That dude should not be allowed anywhere near a firearm. I don't think I'd ever consider running against him because there's always the chance he'll go crazy and shoot up the local Congressional office.

Meh. Let the baby have his bottle. As long as he pays for it.

FTFA: West supporters were watching the count as it was being conducted.

How is this even allowed? Regular citizens can just loom over vote-counters whenever they feel like it?

"It's just to protect the integrity of the elective process," said West supporter Beverly Hines. "How can you have confidence if the ballots are being copied and recopied and recopied?"

Suuuure, you are. Go the fark home you paranoid piece of shiat and let the people do their jobs.

A friend of mine who is a cop in Atlanta was all beside himself the day the "honorable" Mr. West came into the restaurant where he works security as a second job.
He was hoping West would run for president some day, maybe a 2016 run is coming!
 
2012-11-09 02:01:26 PM  
They're still counting votes, so I have no idea why West thinks he has any reason to request the courts to impound voting machines and recount paper ballots.

/Might have worked for Nazis or Communists.
//I don't believe we have many of those in Palm Beach County.

This has become increasingly obvious this past week. I was continuing hope, for some family members, but alas...

You lost, asshole.

Now f*ck off.

It's funny how the Tea Party is "for" Tort reform and against Judicial activism which is in direct condradiction of West's actions here.

I guess they're against it until it suits them. (Pun intended)

There were several stories yesterday that they were still counting the initial votes and West was ahead by about 300 votes.

Murphy currently leads West 50.39% to 49.61%

Allen West is a terrible person, but I can't blame him for wanting a recount in a race this close. Of course, if it were me, I'd wait until they were actually done counting before making a scene.

That was in one county in his district. Not the district as a whole.

I can blame him: the law clearl says the limit hasn't been reached. He's opposed to judges legislating from the bench until he wants one to do it for him.

So how long does it take for that idiot 49% to see how this person really is?

Again I am aghast anyone votes for a person like Allen West regardless of party. Low information voters indeed.
 
2012-11-09 03:40:03 PM  
Fine, but only if Bugs Bunny does the counting.

"One vote for West.
One vote for Murphy.
Two votes for West.
One, two Votes for Murphy.
Three votes for West.
One, two, three votes for Murphy.
Etc."

NEWS: Listening to the comedian known as Glenn Beck today and they reported a breaking story about West now leading by 300 votes.

FARK: The story was from The Blaze and the source was a caller from Florida...

IIRC it was this race that, when Stewart announced it on the Daily Show, he replied to the cheers with "Really? House race in Florida? These are junkies people. Not political junkies, just junkies."

/yeah, but he's such a douchebag
