***UPDATE: LAWSUIT FILED*** It’s Not Over, Folks: Allen West trails in Florida but wont concede defeat

UPDATE: Allen West has officially filed a lawsuit to impound the … voting machines so that a full recount can be done:


A follow up after a phone call with a friend who spoke to Rep. West this AM. This one is not over. Bigger picture, the battle for minority Republicans – Mia Love and Allen West for example (Democrats are determined to keep down through re-districting, or whatever means possible, as they are such a threat to them) will go on. That is one I myself hope to key in on in the future because of its significance for the GOP and conservatism.

I believe tactical mistakes left some things we shouldn’t have on the table this year. Today marks the beginning of new battles with fresh perspectives, so long as we remain dedicated to winning for the right reasons. Lick your wounds, wring your hands as you will, and even perhaps must in some cases, then please get ready to fight, again. There’s far too much time remaining and issues at risk to even remotely consider surrendering anything, now.

Win, or lose, here, Rep. West must and will be heard from, again. I’ve little doubt about that. Whatever you have to do immediately, get it out of your system and suck it up. We’re in a long war and any talk of permanent defeat, or surrender, is meaningless BS I’ve no desire to entertain just now.

Tea Party-backed Republican Representative Allen West refused on Wednesday to concede defeat and demanded a partial recount in his re-election bid in Florida, where he trailed Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy.Wests campaign said there were still tens of thousands of absentee ballots to be counted in Palm Beach County and provisional ballots to be verified throughout Floridas 18th congressional district, which also includes parts of Martin and St. Lucie counties.

“This race is far from decided and there is no rush to declare an outcome. Ensuring a fair and accurate counting of all ballots is of the utmost importance,” Wests campaign manager, Tim Edson, said in a statement.

    Mr. West was the target of several Collectivist outfits, or this would not even be close.

    He WILL be back, even if the Collective manages to prevail here.

  2. Annie says:

    Welcome back, Dan! So glad to see you are okay. I agree with you. We must not give up. We have to set aside our upset and soldier on.

  3. Ragspierre's Mom says:

    Allen West is a batshit crazy nutball. Only idiots like my son support such a fool.

    Looks like he’s going to get a dishonorabl discharge from Congress just like he did from the Army.

    • Wade Prater says:

      Ragspierre, Allen West is not Bat Shit Crazy, YOU ARE YOU LIBERAL HACK!

      • Ragspierre says:

        You’ve been tricked by a little, stupid, moonbat sock-puppet who posts as my mother (who is long dead).

        Col. West is a very fine man, and was a very fine officer who took care of his troopers.

        • Wade Prater says:

          This is what you said, right?

          Allen West is a batshit crazy nutball. Only idiots like my son support such a fool.

          • Ragspierre's Mom says:

            Wow, you can read and cut AND paste. A regular Einstein. You should take one of ‘Col’ West’s medals or something.

      • Ragspierre's Mom says:

        You sound about as dimwitted as my son, so let me enlighten you:

        Allen West got kicked out of his last government job by the US Army and he just got kicked out of his current government job by the voters. It’s game over for Colonel Crackpot.

        • Ragspierre says:

          Let me make this plain enough for an idiot like you…

          you are a liar, and those are lies.

          Typical Collectivist puke.

          • Ragspierre's Mom says:

            Deny it all you want, son. We both know the truth. Allen West is an unstable asshat with a bad haircut.

            You keep playing internet big shot if you want – just don’t forget to take the trash out. I don’t want to have to keep reminding you.


          • Ragspierre says:

            you are a liar, and those are lies.

    • Shirley says:

      West retired from the United States Army as a lieutenant colonel after 22 years of service. He deployed to Kuwait in 1991 and Iraq in 2003. After leaving the military he and his family moved to Florida where he taught high school for a year and worked for a defense contractor, part of his time spent in Afghanistan as a civilian adviser to the Afghan National Army.

    • Isabella1709 says:

      You are pond scum just like most lefties.

    • Karen says:

      Ragspierre…..Allen West does NOT have an dishonorable discharge…..check your facts first before you open your mouth.

    • Wayne Jackson says:

      Lady–where is your head?

    • Fired up and ready to go for Obama says:

      Could not agree more! West is insane and never should have been elected the first time. He is an embarrassment. I am as glad as I can be that both he and Joe Walsh are gone. America will not tolerate their extreme mania.

    • bladerunner says:

      rags mom.
      you old coot you dont know good from bad. poor old fool

  4. Ragspierre says:

    Allen West is head and shoulders above a pathetic, nepostitic puke like Jesse Jackson, Jr. the VI, running from the crazy ward/cocktail bar in the clinic.

    • Ragspierre's Mom says:

      Speaking of cocktail bars, next time you come home drunk don’t piss on the front porch – it alarms the neighbors and it IS my house.


  5. Badger says:

    Wait, why was West in such a fight? Because our wonderful establishment Republicans redistricted him into a new district that far more Democratic leanings. They can’t stand anyone who challenges the status quo, just like the establishment Democrats who pounded every Blue Dog into submission. If things don’t work out for LtCol West, he needs to pack up like the Beverly Hillbillies and move West – to Texas. I am sure we can find a Tea Party district that will adopt him and run him for office the next chance they get.

  6. Rosalie says:

    West is no one’s fool. I’m glad he’s wants the recount.

  7. muxdemux says:

    West was a threat to the House GOP leadership. Just imagine if he’d gone after the Speaker position?

    • Fired up and ready to go for Obama says:

      He would have lost that just like he lost the re-election. His quest as a politician has been defeated and I could not be more pleased. Yeah!

      • Ragspierre says:

        Your lil’ Snoopy dance seems as delusional as your Collectivist stupidity.

        You might want to keep up with events.

  8. Concerned says:

    Why is the war criminal running to an activist judge instead of listening to the people? I thought that listening to the people was what the marketing scheme called “the Tea Party” was all about. That’s what all those white old ladies in tri-cornered hats, screaming about keeping government out of their medicare have been screaming.

    There must be a lot of impotent rage and tears on the reich side of the aisle today. For 4 years your masters promised you that you would get your country back from the conservative democrat occupying the WH. What happened? Were you saddened when that did not happen? For the last few weeks, your masters were also telling you that the polls were skewed and that Tea Party hero, Willard M. Rmoney was going to take back the WH in a walk, for Real (white) Americans like you. Does it concern you that your masters are either lying to you, or that they are simply buffoons?

    All that voter suppression. All that sweet corporate cash Clarence Thomas let you have. You were so, so sure. And what did it get you? A 2 seat net loss in the Senate. And Obamacare permanency.

    It must make you very sad, and it must hurt your delicate feelings that over and over again, you get rolled by the Kenyan usurper – the affirmative action candidate – the teleprompter in chief – the community organizer – president food stamps.

    The question remains – is our wingnuts capable of learning from their mistakes?

    • Ragspierre says:

      I laugh when I think of you wasting all that time and hate on such a useless screed!

      • Concerned says:

        Irony. I laugh when I think about how much time and effort you’ve wasted over the past 4 years screaming about taking your country back.

        And losing.


        • Ragspierre says:

          Time and effort fighting for America are not wasted, and I have influenced (with your help…thanks, btw!) many people to vote in an informed way (contra Collectivist lies).

          But, while I have you here wasting your employer’s time, tell us about the great lessons we should be learning.

    • Ragspierre says:

      On Tuesday only one precinct had less than 113% turnout. “The Unofficial vote count is 175,554 registered voters 247,713 vote cards cast (141.10% ). The National SEAL Museum, a St. Lucie county polling place, had 158.85% voter turn out, the highest in the county.”

      The Supervisor of Elections, Gertrude Walker, had this to say concerning the 141% voter turnout: “They may have had something like that in Palm Beach County, but we’ve never seen that here.”

  10. CarolO says:

    Looks like Allen West may have to either concede or just look like the ass that he is. Counting in Palm Beach, St Lucie and Martin is done. That includes absentee and provisional ballots. The vote before these counts was West 157,872 to Murphy 160,328 with the advantage of 2456 going to Murphy.

    After counting provisional and absentee ballots, the totals are now West 164,448 to Murphy’s 166,890. Murphy still leads by 2442. It only changed by 14 votes.

      What about democracy do you hate?
