For those of you defending to the death West's every effort to challenge his election loss, I suggest you think back 12 years to what you were saying about the Gore campaign's comparable efforts to count every vote.

A judge today denied U.S. Rep. Allen West‘s request that he order a recount of 37,379 ballots from early voting in St. Lucie County — effectively leaving the decision up to the county’s canvassing board, which meets today at 4 p.m.

Circuit Judge Dan Vaughn said he did not have the authority to order the recount, which West wanted after problems emerged in the counting of early votes on...
