This isn't over for him. He will keep on going and I do hope that he has to pay for this and not the tax payers.

Oh yes - and you would ask the Democrat candidate to pay for the recount if they were "wasting money" also - right?

Nothing to see here, folks...

Voter fraud rumor of the day: 141% voter turnout in St. Lucie County, Fla. | Twitchy

Even Twitchy (your favorite news source) admits that the "141%" figure refers to the number of actual ballot cards that were cast, NOT total votes. Each ballot consisted of two cards.

Wingnut FAIL.

Rep. Allen West calls for recount in Florida | Fox News Video


Alan West has more than a case!!

The numbers dont even match up the number of people that went to the polls!!

His opponent is claiming a "resounding" victory??? Really!! ???

It's razor thin!!!

Wow!! I smell another Al Franken move here!!

Actually, I don't think they're necessarily doing anything wrong (Not since Bush at least), but rather, it is that these races are so close, they need to be recounted for accuracy. I think Florida initiates an automatic recount if the difference is 0.5% or less of the votes.

Each ballot has 2 pages. That chart from St. Lucie County shows the number of ballot pages cast -- not the number of votes.

Even Michelle Malkin has admitted as much.

Nothing to see here. Go find another fake controversy to obsess and multi-post about.

I personally prefer aligning insanity that West has demonstrated with the party he calls home.

Ohio and PA are also having issues, not just Florida. Seems to only be a problem in Democratic counties... WA has had issues with King County for years, while test of the state doesn't.

On one hand, I almost hope he loses. Then he may have no ties to FL and could make the move to Idaho.
