Losing Florida Congressman Allen West Wants Judge To Seize Ballots And Voting Machines
Allen West wants a court order to seize voting machines and ballots to see if he really lost to Patrick Murphy.
The freshman tea party favorite’s hopes appear to be dimming as Murphy clings to a 2,456-vote lead in the unofficial count, holding 50.4 percent of the vote.
Murphy’s lead is outside the margin that would trigger a recount, which West says is needed.
He’s alleging “disturbing irregularities” at the polls, including possible tabulation errors and voters being locked out.
