The extremely close U.S. House race between incumbent Republican Allen West and Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy appears to be headed toward a partial recount.
In 2000 democRATs were screaming “count all the votes”. Now that it’s Allen West the election supervisor can’t b bothered to count

“16,000+ Votes Being Recounted in Allen West Congressional Race “

Here’s more from FoxNews.com:
The St. Lucie County Canvassing Board announced late Saturday it had set an “emergency meeting” to start at 7 a.m. Sunday at its headquarters, to “recount all ballots cast during early voting.” The number of early ballots is estimated by officials to be roughly 37,000.
“There are possible irregularities in St. Lucie County,” claims Jeffrey Scott Shapiro, a Florida lawyer volunteering for the West campaign who has been quoted on the issue. “On Sunday we’ll have a chance to recount the early votes and that’s a good start to preserving the integrity of the democratic process.”
Given the potential irregularities, West has yet to concede the race. We have already seen racist liberals gloat over the assumption that West lost. Now, their venom is aimed at him not conceding.
Allen West lost and will not concede HAHA you are a relic Mr. West you caught the ass end of relevance on the back of the Tea Party GOODDAY!

Worth noting that David Petraeus knew when to step down and Allen West does not.
