The torturer and disgraced former soldier Alan West, whose loss to Patrick Murphy is by enough votes to obviate legal requirements for a recall, has sued to try to overturn the election.
"West, the south Florida Republican who has made headlines nationally for
his fiery tea party rhetoric, filed motions asking a judge to require
elections officials to impound ballots and voting machines. Separately,
his campaign alleged "disturbing irregularities" at the polls and called
for a recount."
There is nothing that happened on Tuesday that should give us more pleasure than having managed, despite West having more corporate funding than any other Congressional candidate in the country, in turning this vicious subhuman monster out of congress. If he succeeds in this shameful effort, it will be nothing more than one more Congressional election bought by the rich. And of all of their pet candidates, none brings as much shame on the country as West.
West is going to be backed in this vicious act by a lot more rich people's money. Murphy will have to depend on us. If you'd like to kick in a few bucks to help Murphy out, you can do it at this site.
