Top Florida Democrats sounded the alarm Friday over what they see as improper interference by Gov. Rick Scott in U.S. Rep. Allen Wests attempt to hold onto his congressional seat.
U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Weston, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, flatly asserted in a statement that the Republican governor is attempting to interfere in the contest between Republican West and Democrat Patrick Murphy.
A spokesman for Scott's secretary of state denied the Democrats' assertions.
Unofficial results show Murphy as the winner, but the West campaign has asserted that counting irregularities in St. Lucie County part of the 19th Congressional District, along with northern Palm Beach and Martin counties make the results suspect.
Scott and West have enjoyed cordial relations. Both elected in 2010 with strong support from members of the tea party, West has frequently praised the governor since they took office.
Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner, a Scott appointee, ordered a three-member team both the Democratic and Republican sides call them auditors from his Division of Elections to St. Lucie County this week.
In a clear effort to overturn an election result after having lost at the ballot box, Allen West has now run to Governor Rick Scott to needlessly interfere with and politicize a non-partisan election process, Wasserman Schultz said.
More from Wasserman Schultz:
"All votes in this election were counted fairly and accurately, and Allen West has lost beyond the mandatory recount range...

Communists in action!
So what’s the problem Rats? If the original vote count is correct then you got no problems. There’s no problems with the vote count right?
And Benghazi was a spontaneous riot over a Youtube video.
With all of the already-documented problems with the voting tally, this hag thinks anyone believes a word she is saying? Other than Democrats?
So if it doesnt meet the requirement for mandatory, we no longer have the right to ask for a on mandatory recount? Did Al Gore know that?
I can’t stand that lying you-know-what! Seems I remember the dems had no problem with multiple recounts when Gore was involved. I hate hypocrites and liars!
TO the Florida dems... STFU
So what is it, exactly, that the democrats are accusing Scott of doing?
An honest count.
The governor just has to used terms that the democrats can understand. He and the republicans need to say.
“We just want to make sure that no voters have been disenfranchised”.
“All votes in this election were counted fairly and accurately, and Allen West has lost beyond the mandatory recount range..>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
EEerrrr NO!. The early voting ballot count was not properly conducted, and Allen West is resorting to the courts to get an order of recount.
Wasshername Shitz needs to stop lying to the press.
For the record, is there a bag limit on Black Panthers?
Unfairly sending people to investigate accusations of vote fraud when everyone knows (because the Democrat talking heads tell them so) there is no voter fraud in the US.
Oh, by the way you know of course that if the Democrats dont like it; it has to be unfair. BY DEFINITION!!
Proves that the Democrats are racisists
