Posted on 11/10/2012 5:13:37 PM PST by Fred
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. Republican U.S. Rep. Allen West is refusing to concede, even though the state of Florida says he lost his re-election bid by 2,442 votes.
The state reported its complete but unofficial tally on Saturday in the 18th District race. There are still a handful of overseas and military ballots outstanding, but under Florida law, recounts are based on Saturdays results.

I say damn the RPOF! They hung him out to dry on the redistricting and now they abandon him in the St. Lucie County obvious double counting. When we see the average turnout across the state in or near the 70’s and then this county reports with 144?
Explain that one Lenny! You may have lost the war but you wouldn’t finish the battles.
I noticed that Bohner and the Republican portion of the House along with the NRC has chosen to stand down. I just don’t understand why absolutely no one has spoken out in support of this man. That, in and of itself, speaks volumes.
You know, eff it. There’s nothing in the Constitution that says that the Speaker of the House needs to be a sittin Rep. If Col West “loses” the election, launch a campaign to toss Boeher our and give the position to West.
“God bless Alan West”
Absolutely. Perhaps he’ll run in 2016?
Bonehead and the rest of the RINOS in the party wanted to get rid of West , and it looks like they have succeeded . Petraeus , too . Not only about Benghazi . Petraeus was a potential future presidential candidate .
Allen West: He looks in the mirror and sees...ME. LOL
Would it have helped if I would have quadtripled the number of “citenzzzens” who voted for obama?
I like your idea very much!
“Will (FLA AG) Pam Bondi please pick up the red courtesy phone...”
Okay, a little lol then. I’m somewhat touchy the past few days because of the election. I need to recharge my sense of humor. :-)
Prima facie evidence of fraud should enable a court to reach beyond the .5 % threshold. This kind of crap should not be happening, West’s request should be granted and an investigation begun, with prosecutions for fraud.
Enough is enough.
she is re-registering to the Democrap party about now....
I think the comment was meant to show what the rat candidate was thinking, not the poster.
Had to read that twice myself.
West must lawyer up fast
The election results came up in conversation at my daughters work place during her lunch break. According to the people at work, no one votes because there's no one to vote for. Neither party cares about them because they work.
I've been saying this for years. No one represents the tax payers. No one. Both parties take, take, take, and spend, spend, spend. In the meantime, the working class is suffering under the heavy burden.
Has anyone ever noticed how the Republicans bitch about the democrats expanding the power of government, but have never - even when they had all three powers - done anything to cut the democrats policies back? In fact, they've even added to them. They just throw us a little bone and wait for us to go away.
Why would they care if West loses? He IS speaking up and trying to protect the working class. The RNC simply cannot tolerate that. Smaller government takes away THEIR unlimited power when they're in charge. The two parties just take turns growing, spending, and playing good cop/bad cop.
Mark my words. In 2016, the RNC will "nudge" the base toward electing another liberal(R) as our candidate. Once again, they'll force us to "vote against the other guy", so their chosen liberal(R) can win.
"If they pull a knife, we use a gun."
Allen West loses re-election.
Alan Grayson wins election.
Florida, may the stupid be with you.
I got a thank you mail tonight, first correspondence since election night. I didn’t read as it was just too painful to even see it in my in box.
Tuesday WAS a disaster. Wednesday morning my wife got word her dad had passed. When she got to her mom’s house she got word her older bro’s wife, when she got word, headed up to the hunting camp to tell him his dad was dead, rolled her Jeep, and died. The country died. My family died. LOL. At least there were 2 of us that got out when it completely went to shit. LOL.
