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.

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.

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 can't think of a single recount at the House level that swung more than a few hundred votes. The sort of errors that would produce huge swings (typos when reporting unofficial results) are caught when they do their final reporting. Hell, even at the state level with millions of votes and thousands of precincts, you really don't get that kind of swing.

Just for lulz, I subscribed to get emails from Breitbart.
This is what they just sent out for West:

"Dear Patriot,

Conservative hero Allen West is in the midst of a brutal recount. His entire career hangs in the balance.

The liberals threw everything they had at him in this election and couldn't defeat him outright.

So now they are trying to STEAL this election!

Please help Revive America stand up to defend Colonel Allen West right now! Please make an URGENT contribution of $35, $50, $75, $100, $200 or whatever you can today.

This really is an epic battle between a conservative hero and the entire liberal establishment.

And Allen West is getting very little help from the Republican Party. He needs grassroots conservatives to stand up today!

Colonel West is a fighter. The liberals hoped he would just give up when his leftist opponent pulled ahead by a small margin.

However, Allen West isn't a typical Republican who gives in to the left at the first sign of trouble.

Instead of conceding this race he has demanded a recount. His campaign has found "disturbing irregularities" in St. Lucie County!

West's campaign reported this the day after the election:

"There are still tens of thousands of absentee ballots to be counted in Palm Beach County and potential provisional ballots across the district. Late last night Congressman West maintained a district wide lead of nearly 2000 votes until the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections "recounted" thousands of early ballots. Following that "recount" Congressman West trailed by 2,400 votes. Given the hostility and demonstrated incompetence of the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections, we believe it is critical that a full hand recount of the ballots take place in St. Lucie County."

Allen West will not be thrown out of Congress without a fight! He will not be cheated out of his Congressional seat!

But he needs ordinary Americans like you to stand with him in this battle.

Please make the very most generous contribution you can to help keep Allen West in Congress. And please do it now.

I know you're exhausted and disgusted with politics right now. You probably want to put this entire nightmare election behind you.

However, Allen West is still fighting. And I think we should too.

That's why Revive America is going to do everything in our power to help this brave man.

Please donate what you can. The liberal media is pounding Allen West day and night. They are trying to get him to give up on this recount and allow the liberal Democrats to steal his seat.

We must support Allen West.

Once again, this is very, very urgent. Please make the very best online donation you can today.

Yours for America,

Bob Adams

Just came to say this makes me VERY happy. Regardless of what party a candidate associates themselves with, if they have extreme views such as this guys, they have NO business working in our Legislative branch. Views like the one this guys loves to share should not represent that of the American People, and these views do not represent the majority of Americans. Even republicans.

Wednesday I was talking to my sister over the phone about all of the nutbags that got voted out Tuesday night. I mentioned Allen West. She didn't know who Allen West was.

I asked her, "Do you know who Michele Bachmann is?"

My sister said, "Yeah. I know all about that crazy b*tch."

My reply: "Allen West is Michele Bachmann with a high-top fade."

Her shrieking laughter almost tore my eardrums out.

Gotta admit, where Obama winning was, "good, but so obvious and expected by everyone that I'm bored just thinking about it", West losing his seat is much more... awesome and cheer-worthy. Sort of a bonus round for the folks that actually pay attention to politics and place some value on actual integrity in our public officials.

I saw that. He had that same shell shocked look that i've seen on a lot of Republicans in the last couple of days. The how did this happen look. Somehow I dont think it went as you thought it would Rick.
