The real question is why Florida Gov Scott and the rest of the Florida GOP wanted to get rid of West.....West was re-districted out......

Hee is the problem - the census required redistricting because of the population changes. They have to try to draw the district lines to make the population of each district as even as possible...which is very hard to do - this happens every ten years - so some districts are going to be dropped and new ones put in place...when it changes from a D to an R or from R to D it is not really that it was necessarily done to effect election outcomes (gerrymandering) but that the population had changed. We had to good republican districts get dropped but one of the representatives managed to get re-elected while the other got "Frankened".

No, West had sufficient support in the newly drawn district. It was FRAUD, plain and simple, that "cost" him his seat.

People stealing out of the cookie jar want everyone else to steal from the cookie jar. If there is one person not stealing from the cookie jar they will try to corrupt them or they will get rid of them.

The redistricting process was changed by a Florida Contitutional amendment that took it out of the hands of the state house (after it was lost by the Democrats) and put into the hands of a "non-partisan" panel, which was comprised of mostly Democrats. The results had to be approved by a state judge (conveniently liberal), and voila', redistricting by Democrat minority to advantage the Democrat minority. Gov. Scott had NOTHING to do with it, it was just the deceptive campaign to pass the amendment.

Voter integrity group True the Vote (TTV) filed a federal lawsuit Monday against St. Lucie County Florida Supervisor of Elections Gertrude Walker for failing to uphold election law and for failing to enforce record inspection rights under the National Voter Registration Act and the Florida Constitution. The lawsuit has been filed in light of the gross mishandling of the recount between Rep. Allen West and now Rep. Patrick Murphy by St. Lucie County election officials.
