Democrats charge Rick Scott improperly interfering to help Allen West

http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/broward/broward-politics-blog/sfl-rick-scott-allen-west-20121116,0,6294591.story

This following a judge's refusal to intervene, this afternoon...


Top Florida Democrats sounded the alarm Friday over what they see as improper interference by Gov. Rick Scott in U.S. Rep. Allen West’s attempt to hold onto his congressional seat.

U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Weston, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, flatly asserted in a statement that the Republican governor is attempting to interfere in the contest between Republican West and Democrat Patrick Murphy. A spokesman for Scott's secretary of state denied the Democrats' assertions.

Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner, a Scott appointee, ordered a three-member team – both the Democratic and Republican sides call them “auditors” – from his Division of Elections to St. Lucie County this week.

“In a clear effort to overturn an election result after having lost at the ballot box, Allen West has now run to Governor Rick Scott to needlessly interfere with and politicize a non-partisan election process,” Wasserman Schultz said.

2. Can this madness end??

We have no strong Democrat here in this state to help us. The loss of Alex Sink was tremendous. The stupid people in this state that voted for that criminal over a person who actually has lived in this state and cared for the people of this state is unbelievable. I hope DWS can do something. What?? I'm not sure

I can't imagine having those two nut jobs in my state...when I have Sanders and Leahy!
Vermonters are blessed!
