Allen West's Lawyers: Let's Interrogate Elections Officials

Categories: Broward News

fire_ant_logo.jpg
Since mock execution is not an accepted method of investigating election results in South Florida, confessed torturer and probable one-term congressman Allen West has turned to the next-best thing: a team of high-powered attorneys.

See also:

Tuesday's results in West's contest with young Patrick Murphy for U.S. House District 18 left the borderline insane fiery ex-colonel trailing his opponent by a bit more than 2,000 votes, too much to trigger an automatic recount but close enough to cry foul.

To steal the election make sure of the result -- and purely out of his well-known concern for factual accuracy and fair play -- West has called in the legal firepower of Holtzman Vogel Josefiak, whose partners have made their bones by, among other things, masking right-wing propaganda mills, trampling on women, and... gaming previous elections.  They've asked the courts to impound ballots and voting machines.

HVJ's founding partner, Jill Vogel, holds an undergrad degree in government and religion but appears not to know the difference: As a Virginia state senator, she sponsored a theologically derived bill early this year that forces women to undergo an ultrasound before having an abortion, one of a number of medieval measures passed by that state's Taliban GOP-dominated legislature. 

Graciously, the final version of Jill's law allows its victims to choose between transvaginal probe and abdominal ultrasound. A "both of the above" option was left off the measure.

Firm partner Alex Vogel, Jill's husband, previously served as general counsel to Dan Quayle, during the half-wit Hoosier's 2000 presidential run, then as gc to former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, the senator from Hospital Corporation of America Tennessee. 

In addition to his lawyering, Alex puts his legislative experience to work at his other business, D.C. "bipartisan government relations firm" Mehlman Vogel Castagnetti, where lobbyists from both sides of the aisle maul and/or massage our elected representatives on behalf of Corporate America.  

Both Vogels are familiar with Florida from their time here in the 2000 presidential election recount, the great school of GOP ballot shenanigans, whose legalistic maneuvers resulted in the U.S. Supreme Court's notorious Bush v. Gore, the eight-year reign of Stupid Dubya, the War in Iraq, exploding deficits, and so on and so forth.


Cashiered Col. Crazy West certainly knew who to turn to in his time of electoral trouble. When the rabble get out of hand, the Vogels' firm is the one to call.

fireant, oh my god you are so (NOT) funny, where did you acquire that much (little) humor, those crossed out words had me in stitches, please give me a chance to catch my composure (lunch)....... On a lighter note, I believe that your sorry ass (ass) would be on your pitiful begging knees to have Col Allen West (hero) (warrior) (patriot) beside you, or rather in front of your (cowardly) self, in any combat situation. It is worthless pieces of humanity (crap) like you that people like Col West are sent to war to allow pieces of humanity (crap) like you to say sarcastic (idiotic) things like you say. I assume from you piece that you do not like the Congressman, so be it. You however, are a very poor journalist (joke).

Good riddance to Allen West, a war criminal and a vile blot on the good name of America.

“First we frighten people, and then we demoralize them.  An educated and healthy nation is harder to govern.  There is an element in the thinking of some people that we do not want people to be educated, healthy and confident because they will get out of control.  The top 1% of the world’s population controls 80% of the world’s wealth; it is incredible what people can put up with.  But, they are poor, they are demoralized and they are frightened.  Therefore, they think perhaps that the safest thing to do is to take orders and hope for the best” 

 

THAT WAS THE STRATEGY OF THE REPUBLICAN & THE TEA PARTIES …… THEY FAILED MISERABLY.

 

"I believe in democracy as long as democracy believes in exactly what I believe"  . Allen West is history, patriots believe in their country good bad and ugly. Allen West believes that because he served in the military America should roll over and kiss his ass. Wrong country, ain't gonna happen, the war made this guy crazy, he needs some serious psychiatric help.

Allen West is a true Patriot. His only problem was in trusting the Republicans. He did not realize that there is not a dimes worth of difference between Romney and Obama. Both are complete frauds. The Republic is dead. The majority of the voters, of this nation, are brainwashed morons educated by the Federal education system. This education system rewards those who embrace socialism and detest capitalism, and gives tenure to those who "don't think". It has taken 70 years for this transformation to take place, but it is now instilled in the minds of the youth of this nation........ and thus, unless there are more men like Allen West elected to office there will never be another American President who believes in, and defends, the Constitution. America, the great experiment in Freedom, is dead. Only Patriot's like Allen West can revive this dead Republic.

Has anyone bothered to ask Jesus what he would do?

I've asked my neighbor -- a woman who proudly proclaims to have a close, personal friend with Mr. H. Christ... She's oddly quiet...

Maybe H.Christ is banging them virgins in Heaven... Not a stretch, coming from a guy who liked to hang out with hookers.

West is the biggest pussy ever!  Notice how he is the only losing congressman in the country acting like a little bitch.  You lost, get the hell out of Congress.  Everyone, and I mean everyone hates you anyway.  You never get photo ops with other members, nobody wants to be seen with you, only crazy Palin sings your praises (look where she is now...), you are vitriolic, never drafted a useful piece of legislation, are a shame to the US Military, tout your shameful service record as a plus.  It is TIME FOR YOU TO GO.  Now I guess you will burn more of that out of state money on legal fees.  It will not work.  Have you no pride, man?  I told you your days were numbered.  I bet Fox won't even let you on the air anymore, since you now have no stage on which to act like an asshole.  Go back to your biker buddies or whatever it is you did before shitting on our political system like none before you.  Oh yeah.... Steadfastly yours, 

 

Hit the Road Jack!!!!!

With his last gasping breath and the Koch Bros. money, Westy will fight for his job. Dude needs a Congressional pension.

 

"Members of Congress are not eligible for a pension until they reach the age of 50, but only if they've completed 20 years of service. Members are eligible at any age after completing 25 years of service or after they reach the age of 62. Please also note that Members of Congress have to serve at least 5 years to even receive a pension.

The sooner the liberal influence is eradicated from the US, the better. The founding fathers had it right. Only property owners should have the vote.

Come on, you missed the easy layup here.

Just have Allen West, break out his 1911 .45 ACP and blast a few rounds right next to the voting machine(s) in question.

Guaranteed to get the results West is looking for...

 @lordhowardhurts Allen West is a true loose cannon. There are military standards for the treatment of prisoners, and he violated many of them. "I was trying to save the lives of my men" is not a rationale for the mistreatment of a prisoner. Take a look at the Uniform Code of Military Justice and the Geneva Conventions for more information. You learn about both when you actually serve in the military - whether you follow them or not is a personal decision, and both paths have consequences. In today's professional military, there is no room for cowboys.

 @lordhowardhurts Patriots do not commit war crimes nor do they disrespect the American people or the President like the criminal West has done.

 @eckhardtco Yeah, an American citizen who is encouraging and facilitating terrorism against his own country really deserves a lot of consideration. Remember, these are the same kind of people who brought us 9/11, Iraq, and Afghanistan. Maybe you remember the toll that people like the "American citizens" you're crying over have taken on this country. You must be a Muslim.

PATRICK ♣ERIN♣ MURPHY IS A PUSSY!!!!!!!

UNABLE TO HANDLE THE TRUTH, THE ZERO IS THREATENING TO SUE THE HERO!!!!!

 

U.S. Rep. Allen West, R-Palm Beach Gardens, is running another TV ad with Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy‘s 2003 mug shot — this time to claim that Murphy “isn’t being honest about his drunken assault of a police officer.”

Murphy’s campaign is objecting to the ad’s use of the word “assault” and hinting at legal action because Murphy was not charged with assault in the incident outside a Miami Beach club when he was a 19-year-old University of Miami student.

 

“We are considering all legal options,” Murphy consultant Eric Johnson said today. “We’re talking to lawyers now.”

 

HEY, ERIN, GROW THE FLICK UP, YOU SNIVELING @SSWIPE!!!!!!

I would hazard a guess that you would change your pompous attitude were you one of the men Allen West was trying to save. Get real. War is hell, and rules of war are for "Harvard Type" suckers. Take one long look at Afghanistan and you can view the success of today's professional military. Why did Romney fail? Because he followed the rules while the thug and fraud, Obama, "harvested" votes anywhere there was a name to use for voter identification.  If Allen West is a cowboy, then this nation needs more cowboys.

 @smdrpepper War Crimes? Just who defines War Crimes? And a Patriot disrespects any American who is not following the Constitution regardless if he is a regular citizen or the President. Obama is a fraud and it is time for the cover up to stop. It is just too bad that Romney was such a "sissy boy" that he did not "hammer" Obama during the debates on his false credentials and the Libyan  cover up. Romney was so weak that he let Candy whoever chastise him like some school teacher would do to a middle school child, when the facts she presented were as false as the entire Obama history. He did not have the quick response to ask her where and why she had, in front of her, the Democratic talking points. He just stood like a deer in the headlights and got "hit". If you read my postings  http://freedomfiles.blogspot.com/ you will find that I said, many times, that the Republicans should have given the election to Obama and concentrated on winning the Congressional races so that once Obama took office for the second time, he could be brought up on charges and Impeached. And I supported Allen West for President because I believe that this nation is headed for civil war, and only a military man would have the courage to do what would be necessary to keep this Republic intact. In time the truth will come out.

 @ralph4america  @gimmesamore That's Congressman Patrick Erin Murphy to you!  Why not go shoot some guns next to a prisoner's head in violation of the Geneva Convention with your buddy West.  He has all the time he needs now!!!!!! Sore losers.

Who defines war crimes, you ask?

The US military, for one:

 

 

"'Frustration and anger overcame his professional ethics and personal values, and he performed what he knew to be illegal and immoral acts,' said the statement issued by the Army's Fourth Infantry Division.

During a closed-door tribunal Friday in the town of Tikrit, West was found guilty of three counts of aggravated assault and a single count of communicating a threat. The ruling was issued after West pleaded guilty to misconduct."
