The Left cannot tolerate such a man in Congress. George Soros and his minions have spent a fortune trying to defeat Allen West. When the polls closed on Election Day, and the votes were counted, West led by a small margin. After a recount, votes mysteriously disappeared and reappeared under his opponent who now is in the lead. West smells a rat and refuses to call it quits without further investigation.
Let's hope and pray that this doesn't turn out like the Norm Coleman vs. Al Franken recount for the Minnesota Senate seat. Coleman led on Election Day, only to have his Senate seat stolen from him through election fraud. Don'tcha know, the libs are rather talented at stealing elections.

Oh My: Elections Board Supervisor Admits “Too Much Haste,” “Mistakes Were Made” Counting Votes In Allen West Race…
Florida Rep. Allen West is threatening a Bush v. Gore-style legal brawl after a county election official admitted “mistakes” in his still uncalled race. [...]
Naturally, the biggest uproar surrounds West, whose legal team has launched an assault on the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections, accusing officials of gross incompetence. At issue is the office’s handling of early votes, which West’s lawyers argue were accidentally double-counted on election night and provided a winning margin to Democratic candidate Patrick Murphy, who leads the congressman by nearly 2,000 votes.
“The whole St. Lucie Board of Elections is straight out of ‘The Dukes of Hazzard,’” Chris LaCivita, West’s hard-charging strategist, said in an interview.
Conservative activists are joining the battle on behalf of their tea party hero.
“Every legal vote must be counted for Allen West!” the Tea Party Leadership Fund wrote in an email asking supporters to contribute to West’s cause.
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 audit of the county’s vote-tabulating process, saying that it was “concerned” about the results. A report was expected to be completed as soon as Friday.
And even Walker has confessed her department made errors. In a news conference, she said officials had shown “too much haste” in trying to get complete results to the public on election night and that “mistakes were made.”She also acknowledged there was an initial problem in feeding voting machine memory cards though the office’s tabulating system.

Suspicious vote count in Allen West race
The Allen West re-election campaign is raising questions about the very odd behavior of the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections, Gertrude Walker. Rep. West carried the other two counties in his district, but "lost" St. Lucie County. The campaign's official website writes:
West for Congress released this statement regarding the growing inconsistencies and continued obfuscation coming from St. Lucie County Board of Supervisors, Gertrude Walker, regarding the ."Last night during a press conference, the Supervisor announced her the last three days of early voting - which is what was retabulated on Sunday. However, if this information is accurate, the total vote in the county should have decreased by 1,700 votes after the Sunday retabulation. Instead the total votes cast declined by 799. It simply does not add up. had determined that approximately 3,650 ballots were double-counted on election night, and approximately 1,950 ballots were not counted at all, with all ballots coming fromIn addition, news reports, the Supervisor of Elections announced her office re-ran some 26,000 ballots from early voting. This would account for the first 6 days of the 8 days of early voting. However, on election night, the campaign staff was told there was a problem with the first 3 days of voting, which would involve approximately 13,000 ballots based on information uploaded to the Division of Elections. What is the truth?Finally, during the same press conference, the Supervisor announced there were some "blank" memory cards involved. If these "blank" memory cards were in reference to the election night decision to retabulate 26,000 ballots, then the cards processed on the first 5 days of early voting have been processed twice, the ballots on day 6 have been processed three times, and of the ballots on the last two days, some have been processed twice and some only once. Whether this resulted through mechanical malfunction, negligence or willful action, the voters of St. Lucie County deserve to know their votes have been fairly counted.Towards that end, we are pleased Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner has decided to send auditors to St. Lucie County to examine the returns and the ballot-counting process, and we have detailed our concerns to him in a letter today.The West campaign is simply seeking the truth, and an accurate count of votes. Given the inconsistencies emanating from the Supervisor's office, we have no confidence in any of the information regarding the votes counted or the election results overall."
