Allen West Still Trails Patrick Murphy After Partial Recount

A partial recount of ballots from St. Lucie County happened on Sunday and -- news flash -- Allen West is still losing.

The recount narrowed Patrick Murphy's lead somewhat, but the tally still isn't enough to trigger an official all-out recount.

On Friday, West's motion to impound the ballots and voting machines was shot down by a judge.

West's next move may be to just keep going to work like nothing ever happened and hope no one notices.

The partial recount reduced Murphy's overall lead to 0.58 percent, which is still outside the 0.5 percent Florida law requires for an official recount and just close enough to really stick in West's craw.

Murphy's campaign attorney, Sean Domnick, called for West to let it go already and move on. West's campaign manager, Tim Edson, however, in a move that seems to be a thing for him, insulted the process and called the recount a "sham" and a "circus."

He also vowed to pursue "every legal action available to make sure every vote is counted fairly and accurately in this election," because frivolous abuse of the courts is OK only when West is the supposed victim.

This even after St. Lucie County agreed to a partial recount -- even though by law, it wasn't required to do so.

Basically, St. Lucie did West a favor by having its employees take their spare time on a weekend to do a recount, and when the result didn't come up roses for Colonel Batshit, the whole process was obviously a sham.

What's that? The numbers still don't add up for West? SHAM! AND! CIRCUS!

So it looks like we're all going to have to buckle up and enjoy the crazy as West takes every legal option he and his attorneys can think of.

West is determined to stay in office so he can continue to call people who disagree with him socialists and rid the world of them evil Muslims and spreading his nuttery all over our faces.

And we all know how much he loves to spread things all over people's faces.

Jesus effin christ. West continually shows no respect for the office, process, or the body of his constituents. He is consistent for sure. He seems to treat the office as his own private property. Somewhere along the line he never learned that holding the office is a privilege.


@Chris Joseph.

Perhaps West is grading on a curve.  If you take out all of the commies, socialists, free loaders, pot smokers, patchoulli loving hippies, single moms, liberals, pansies, pussies, terrorist abiding, can't scuba dive for shit, rice rocket riding, lettuce eating fags then well...

If that is the case, then it's a clear victory for Allen West.


So has the criminal West finally decided to exit stage left yet?

Or is he still going to resist the people decision?

I think he was confused when he was calling everyone anti American.  In reality, it was him all along.

Continuing the Allen West fixation. 


Nothing to report on Benghazi, eh?  Hmph. Thought I'd heard SOMETHING  about it.  Must be mistaken.


 @smdrpepper I think he should move to ... well, I was going to say Utah, but ... Let's say Arizona.

He can now open carry his pearl handled .45 on his hip.

"intelligent troll"  LOL.  Oxymoron? 


Now I should be above that?  I took so much crap from your fellow trolls on the subject I chose to use this article as a reminder.  I remember saying "soon everyone will know how to spell Benghazi."


As far as West goes.  A blip.  Soon to be forgotten.  No real damaged caused.
