Unfortunately, This all could have been avoided if the establishment Republicans had not set West up to lose. By that, I mean restructuring his district to make a win much harder. I have a feeling that they were worried about his influence and his not towing the party line. I don't see or hear about the Republicn party pushing for this recount. It seems it's just West and his supporters.

In other words you want to cheat to win! Thanks for your honest admission!

Redistricting occurs all the time. In Michigan, you could run Hitler in a dem district and he would get 80% of the vote if he had a D next to his name. You could run Darth Vader D and he would win. You could run any mass murderer D and win. How do you think dems get 80-90% of the vote in some districts?

"Establishment Republicrats" WANTED WEST GONE!! He is a Tea Party favorite and the Republicrat Machine does not like anyone that is involved in that movement! West was targeted by his own party and they were willing to give up that seat to a Democrap just to get rid of Allen West!!!

There was a state constitutional amendment pushed through by DEMOCRATS when they lost the stae congress that put the redistricting in the hands of a "non-partisan" (read DEMOCRAT LED) committee, and had to be approved by the Stae Supreme Court (the same that tried to change state law in the Bush/Gore election in 2000, and was overturned). We lost Sandy Adams (Tea Party Republican), and Alan (The Gorilla) Grayson was elected this time all due to the "non-partisan" redistricting.

Allen West isn't giving up his Congressional seat until every vote is counted properly and for good reason. West has described his refusal to concede a matter of preserving the democratic process and believes many mistakes have been made in counting ballots cast in his race against Democrat Patrick Murphy. Now, Florida Election Supervisor Gertrude Walker agrees with him and his supporters.

But West’s supporters aren’t the only ones frustrated with the St. Lucie County elections board and its supervisor, Gertrude Walker. The Florida secretary of state’s office announced this week that it is launching an...
