Allen West FINALLY Concedes


Allen West has conceded in the District 18 race against Patrick Murphy.

At 6:15 a.m. Tuesday, he released the following statement:

"For two weeks since Election Day, we have been working to ensure every vote is counted accurately and fairly. We have made progress towards that goal, thanks to the dedication of our supporters and their unrelenting efforts to protect the integrity of the democratic process. While many questions remain unanswered, today I am announcing that I will take no further action to contest the outcome of this election.

But I must acknowledge that for once, Allen West have some grain of common sense to do the right thing.

Too bad about that two weeks of your life you'll never get back, but hey, it's time to move on. And out.

6. "Unrelenting efforts to protect the integrity" from what, exactly?

Turns out they already had integrity, Mr. West, so your "unrelenting efforts" were much ado about nothing, despite accusations from your side.

Please take this opportunity to engage in "unrelenting efforts" to get a grip on reality.

12. The double standard demonstrated by some on the left is astounding

 

They'll go on and on about Anonymous claiming it save the vote by unhacking Karl Rove's hack, which is just so much CT bullshit, then rail against Allen West when he spews identical CT bullshit about the vote being hacked in his race.

The hypocrisy is at Mitt Romney levels around here.

18. I assume you are trying to make a comparison to 2000 and Al Gore?

If you are then I completely disagree. In 2000 Gore was well within the 0.5% margin that required a recount. Gore never accused anyone of fraud. He only wanted the votes counted as the law and the Florida courts required. That count was terminated early by meddling of the SCOTUS. One the other hand West made specific and baseless accusations of fraud against the election officials in St. Lucie County that he now seems to agree were incorrect. West also received two re-tabulations that he was not entitled to receive by law.

21. LOL, If only more DUers were willing to take the tough stand of bashing other Duers,

then we'd have everything cleared up! Or, hasn't Allen West suffered enough?



Ever hear of the duality of man? People have contradictions in their thinking. That makes them human. Calling Duers hypocrites seems like a crappy way to start the day. Especially for a new member and especially in defense of Allen F'ing West.

16. The people

 

pulling his strings probably told him to quit. West may not be as dumb as you guys think. People did donate a lot of money to his campaign. I don't think he became a high ranking military officer with the way he pretends to act. Not only that he is a minority in the Republican Party. If he really felt that way, he would be calling his own family commies.

The fact that he conceded at all is noteworthy.

23. He's just another paid off hack used to fill the meager list of the republiCONs minority ranks.

 

They have about 3 or 4 names they reference to show that they support Latinos and minorities in general...,
