Poor Rep West,
The Tea Partys' best example of how crazies love to be crazy together and bath in the Florida sunshine.
Stop drinking the cool aide and get real, crazy was last years fashion. Best move to the bible belt and charm some snakes in the name of God.

Allen West finally admits he is a big loser. It is a great day for the state of Florida getting rid of a idiot.

A bit slower than most but a rather flashy way for a rat to leave a sinking ship.

1st- Change district to run in

2nd- Claim voter fraud and call for a recount

3rd- When recount starts to show you'll actually LOOSE votes seek to have ballots impounded.

(shall I go on?)

How about when discovering elections officials are 'losing' ballots and not counting ballots demand a recount.

How about when elections officials cannot or will not respond to sed inquires lawyering up and raising even more suspicion demand a recount.

How about demanding a recount continue after there was a 500 vote/20% swing in the vote margin early in the count demand a recount.

How about demanding a recount to ensure the votes were counted correctly and the proper winner was declared.

How did Allen West's voting record actually affect the groups the lefties claim West was against like it his mission. Could it be West simply didn't verbalize praise for them? Some having trouble with their Muchhausen Syndrome? Not getting enough attention? Friends of Murphy splashing social media with their agenda?

Looks like a basic conservative voting pattern to me.

Let him know you'd welcome him to Pennsylvania. They'd fry him for dinner in less than a week but you and your ilk more than deserve such a politician. A match made in heaven.

It seems weird that Republicans would demand a full recount in Florida.

It was a district not statewide issue.
