Their time is up. St. Lucie County missed the deadline, so they must certify the original results. But even in the recount, Murphy was clearly in the lead.

No they finished. Murphy gained a few hundred votes.

Not surprised. Uncle Tom's are rarely gracious in defeat, which is weird, since they're habitual losers for the most part.

They kicked his sorry butt out of the military too for being sorry. So this isn't a new experience for him.

Comparison fail. West trails by about quadruple the amount of votes Gore did with about 1/25 the amount of votes cast....

And remember, kids, it's the right wing in this country that's racist, not the left wing.

To paraphrase Grover Norquist:

"Allen West is a poopy head."

And a **** poor loser to boot.

I say "good riddance!"
