I predicted this quite a wile ago in my 'Predictions' thread, that one of these wackadoodles would do this.... ------------------------------

After successfully getting the state to recount the votes in St. Lucie County in Florida, Allen West is now losing by an even wider margin than before – but he still won’t concede.

On Sunday, Democrat Patrick Murphy declared victory for the second time after the county filed the results of its recount, though it missed the noon deadline because of a problem uploading the results from one precinct. From the Palm Beach Post:

Preliminary numbers released around 2 p.m. by the St. Lucie County board showed Murphy with an even greater lead, with 65,841 votes to West’s 52,704. When those results are added to the final tallies in Martin and Palm Beach counties, Murphy’s lead increased to 0.65 percent.

West still hasn’t conceded, and his team is considering what legal options it has left to pursue.

“It’s time for Allen West to do the right thing and concede,” said Murphy’s senior adviser, Eric Johnson.

“As usual, Murphy’s people are full of garbage,” Tim Edson, West’s campaign manager, said. “This is something the secretary of state and governor will have to sort out.”

But wait, there's more!

Deirdre Macnab, League of Women Voters of Florida, joins Thom Hartmann. Even though we already knew it - Republicans in Florida have admitted trying to suppress Democratic voters in the Sunshine State. What does this admission mean for voter suppression efforts nationwide - and will anything change for future elections?

As already discovered, the Karl Rove Super-PAC is a funnel for voter suppression on southern states, beginning in the 21st Century with the first purloined election for Dubya.

The more that comes to light on this teabagger's legal doings in the election and the recount, the more he looks like a fool....

The legacy of a failed Tea Party Republican is a lesson to be learned about reactionary, plutocratic dogma in current poltical affairs.

"Refuses to vacate" suggests than in January, they are still there.

Allen West conceded last night/this morning. ---------------------

I agree with both of you. My wording didn't convey what I intended which was that one will refuse to concede, though I really didn't think West would let go this early.....I half wondered if one of his ilk would push it into January...

Call this one half right

Today it is reported that West conceded his political re-election campaign loss to his opponent.

"-At least one national politician will refuse to vacate their seat-most likely a tea partier in the house"

Predicted 106 days ago....
