Allen West campaign is accusing elections officials of "inconsistent behavior" [View all]

Over his dead body!

Allen West still refuses to concede. Now his campaign is accusing elections officials of "inconsistent behavior"


BY JILLIAN RAYFIELD

Democrat Patrick Murphy declared victory in Florida after a partial recount found that he has a lead of 2,400 votes. But Allen West still refuses to concede.

The recount took place on Sunday and looked at ballots cast in St. Lucie County via early voting. But the West campaign didn’t accept the results, and was outraged that St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections Gertrude Walker had only recounted three out of eight days worth of early voting ballots.

“The Supervisor and the Board continue their attempts to hide the facts and after today’s events, their conduct and inconsistent behavior cast even more doubt on the St. Lucie County’s election returns,” his campaign said in a statement, WPTV reports.

The election’s official results will be certified on November 20.
