What the heck is wrong with Florida?
I have no sympathy for Congressman Allen West's (R-FL) political views, and he would call me a Commie soon as not.
But there is no reason whatsoever, from a fairness perspective, why there should not be a full recount and more time given for such a recount.
Getting back at West for what a Republican dominated Supreme Court did in Bush v. Gore is not justice. It is not fair and it is wrong.
Again, there should be a full recount. And it should not matter if it takes a month.
ADDENDUM 11/20/12: West concedes. He admitted his legal team told him that even with undervotes, overvotes or fraudulent votes rejected, the result would still be that Murphy beat him. See here. I had become interested in this because the registrar of voters that covered the area of St. Lucie, Florida had admitted to what appeared to be significant irregularities in the admittedly small precincts of voters. Still, it is more than significant for West to concede that his advisers are saying there were not enough to change the outcome.
Now, perhaps the Republican partisans will wake up and realize that just because a highly black and urban area in Philadelphia votes 100% for Obama, it doesn't mean there is fraud....Maybe if the modern Republican Party was not so hospitable to the promotion of white racism, this wouldn't happen.
