Allen West: My Opponent Only Won Because He Cheated
 
http://thinkprogress.org/politics/20...west-cheating/

Quote:

In an exit befitting his outspoken, controversial two years in Congress, Rep. Allen West (R-FL) said that he only lost his re-election because his opponent cheated.

West lost narrowly to Democratic up-and-comer Patrick Murphy last month, but refused to concede for weeks, demanding a recount of ballots in St. Lucie County. Only after a re-tabulation slightly increased Murphy's lead did West finally accept defeat just before Thanksgiving.

However, the Tea Party congressman appears to be handling the loss acrimoniously. Appearing on Mark Levin's radio show last Thursday, West accused Murphy of only winning by breaking the rules. "I'm not going away just because of a congressional race where he seems to have to cheat to beat me," said West. He did not specify precisely how Murphy supposedly cheated.

LEVIN: You are a national treasure. You are way too important to have something like this to happen and off you go. That can't happen. So I'm really curious to know. Do you have further public service in mind, potentially?

WEST: The most important thing everyone has to understand is my voice is not going to be lost. We've gotten a lot of opportunities, a lot of offers, and we're going to make sure we continue to have that platform. [...] I'm a warrior and I'm a statesman and I'm a servant of this republic. I'm not going away just because of a congressional race where he seems to have to cheat to beat me.

LEVIN: He sure as hell did. It's disgusting.
Listen to it:

Anyone who knows Allen West knows that he is not a bashful man. If he actually had evidence that his opponent won through fraudulent means, he would have presented it weeks ago and Fox News would run a piece every hour on the matter. That West has not shown any evidence gives a clear indication of how truthful his accusation is.
West later wrapped up the interview by accusing President Obama of being a "Marxist, Socialist, rigid ideologue" who "believes he has some self-conceived mandate to go out and further destroy and ruin our economy."
Allen West is a national treasure??? :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: This keeps getting better. :rofl:

West just needs to accept reality and get on with his life.
