Allen West

Lost his re-election to newcomer Democratic rival, Patrick Murphy, Tea-party token black guy and sore loser Allen West ain't going to let go of his Florida 18th District House seat. Crying foul and demanding a recount or face a lawsuit is how this idiot will be leaving his office. He is kicking and screaming as his ugly butt is being led out the door. Classy!

WEST PALM BEACH (AP) -- Firebrand GOP Rep. Allen West, whose made-for-TV rhetoric made him a prized voice of extreme conservatives, has been ousted by political newcomer Patrick Murphy, according to the state's vote count Saturday, but the incumbent was not planning to concede.

Though above the threshold for a full recount, St. Lucie County agreed late Saturday to recount early votes on Sunday. Barring a sizeable shift, the complete but unofficial numbers showed Murphy with 50.4 percent of the vote and held a 2,442-vote lead in the District 18 race. Still, West's campaign said they would press forward.

"We're simply not going to just walk away from the race until we see that the numbers add up," West campaign manager Tim Edson said.

Murphy declared victory early Wednesday morning and has held his lead ever since, even as thousands of absentee and provisional ballots were processed. He issued a statement Saturday saying "it is now time to put the campaign behind us" and has repeatedly said his win is a signal that voters are tired of the extremism exemplified by West.  Link

As of Sunday 11/11/12, a partial recount gave West a slight bump from 2,442 lead to 1,907 (a 50.3% lead for Murphy) but still not enough to mandate a full recount with taxpayer's money.

Allen West's team had spent over $13.7 million for his re-electon, one of the most expensive House race this year - just behind Republican Michele Bachman's $19.3 million. Link

Well, I don't care if he concedes or not, just get the hell out! I hear Fox News needs another nutjob to fill their Conservative panel of crazy talk. West, you will fit right in!
