Democrats charge Rick Scott improperly interfering to help Allen West

Top Florida Democrats sounded the alarm Friday over what they see as improper interference by Gov. Rick Scott in U.S. Rep. Allen West’s 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...

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?

Allen West has lost beyond the mandatory recount range...

So if it doesn’t meet the requirement for mandatory, we no longer have the right to ask for a on mandatory recount? Did Al Gore know that?

The State has the clearest possible responsibility to make certain that its elections are honest. Properly responded to, this is a stupid--if panic caused--gambit on the part of the Leftist demagogues.

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”.

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.

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 don’t like it; it has to be unfair. BY DEFINITION!!

Preemptive strike --

Democrats accusing the Governor of doing what they would be doing and what the Governor should be doing but won't now because he is afraid of that wicked witch Wasserman.

Oh, really?

Who gives a sh!t what these rat bastard commie criminals think? They steal an election and think they can scare off the one they stole it from?

Well, it usually works against most feckless scaredy-pants Pubbies who don't want to be thought nasty of or called "racist" by some of the worst racists on the planet. Ain't gonna work with a real man like West, though. These booger-pickers are in for a fight, as they well should be!

Go Allen!!

Democrats, unions, and the MSM are allowed to collude and conspire, but if two Republicans are seen talking to each other, it's improper influence.

And how do these same Democrats feel about the widespread fraud, multiple voting, ballot tampering, and the machines that automatically switched candidates in the election just passed?

Democrats rely on the fact that, when intimidated in even the smallest way, the conservatives always ... always ... always back off. It works for them, and we allow it.

We’re at war. Rick Scott should simply declare massive rat voter fraud, say that Romney is the winner in Florida and dare Buckwheat and his fat welfare mommas to do something about it.

And for you RINO purists with fractured brains who want to do stuff by the book, you best realize that there is no rule of law anymore.

We are about to enter phase II of TSHF.
