After two weeks of fighting for a recount, Rep. Allen West (or as I like to call him Congressman Mensch) conceded that he lost his bid for re-election to Congress, saying that while questions about the vote count remained, he was unlikely to close the gap between him and Patrick Murphy, his Democratic challenger.

West was a particular target of the liberals because he was an African-American who had conservative beliefs, in other words his loss was a victory for liberal racism. Its interesting that those same liberals such as Chris Matthews, who find racism in words like “Chicago” refuse to recognize that West was targeted particularly because of the color of his skin.  I guess it “aint” racism if a liberal does it.”

West’s concession came hours before the state was to certify the results in the race, and heads off what was shaping up to be a costly legal battle. Saying he still had questions about St. Lucie and Palm Beach County vote tallies, Mr. West said that there weren’t enough contested ballots to make up the gap with Mr. Murphy, who led by more than 1,900 votes in the preliminary tally and 2,000 votes if a partial recount was considered.

“While a contest of the election results might have changed the vote totals, we do not have evidence that the outcome would change,” Lt. Col. West said in a statement to news outlets. “Given the extremely high evidentiary hurdles involved in a successful challenge, I will not ask my generous supporters to help fund a drawn-out, expensive legal effort with little chance of success. Therefore, we will not contest the certification or challenge the seating of Congressman-Elect Murphy.”

West’s loss is a loss for the country, but he promises that he remain involved in serving the country he loves.
