Florida Election Results 2012: Allen West Decries Voter Fraud in Florida, And He is Right

Frank Hagler

In an earlier article I referred to Congressman Lt. Colonel Allen West (R-Fla.) as a “wing nut.” He is a hero and a patriot. I apologize for that remark. He has referred to black Democrats as victims and slaves. He has said the House of Representatives is filled with communists posing as Democrats. I am not a slave, I am not enslaved, I am not a victim, and I am not a communist. I am a liberal and I am not a fan of Republican Congressman Allen West of Florida.

There were three incumbent congresspersons that I especially wanted defeated this year, Joe Walsh of Illinois, Michele Bachmann of Minnesota and Allen West of Florida. There was one Republican that I wanted to win this year, Mia Love of Utah. Unfortunately, I batted .500, two out of four. Walsh and Love were defeated, Bachmann survived a close race and West appears to have lost a crooked election.

West, who is the incumbent, has refused to concede defeat to Patrick Murphy for the right to represent Florida’s 18th Congressional District. West has documented a number of improprieties and questionable, if not shaky and illegal maneuvers by the Democratic Party to prevent him from retaining his seat. As bad as I wanted Allen West to lose, it diminishes the voting franchise, the Democratic Party and the government for him to lose this way. West is being denied his opportunity to resume his position in Congress and evidence is mounting that the Democratic Party officials are involved in a massive voter fraud campaign…

The Palm Beach Post noted that “the head of the Florida Division of Elections Bureau of Voting Systems Certifications, David Drury, and two other Division of Elections officials have been monitoring the St Lucie County election office” ever since West requested assistance from the Secretary of State. The paper said officials from the canvassing board said “We have the responsibility to try to restore trust in an elections process that’s been shrouded with uncertainty.”

Democrats have cried foul. Congresspersons Wasserman-Shultz and Alcee Hastings have both accused Republican Florida Governor Rick Scott of influencing his appointee Secretary of State Detzner to intercede in the voting controversy. They have also come out in defense of Walker. Hastings’ told the Sun-Sentinel Governor Rick Scott’s attempt to undermine and pressure St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections Gertrude Walker – just because he would prefer to keep Allen West in Congress – is yet another blatant display of his willingness to disregard the rule of law for political gain.” Wasserman-Schultz followed Hastings’ comment by saying Governor Scott is now trying to blatantly overturn an election result he disagreed with and undermine Gertrude Walker, a three-decade veteran of the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections office.”

Wasserman-Schultz and Hastings are barking up the wrong tree. This is a blatant example of mismanagement and/or incompetency at the least and voter fraud at the worse…
