Allen West campaign calls Sunday’s recount a ‘sham’

Yesterday’s recount of partial early voting ballots has left the Allen West campaign calling the recount a ‘sham’. They say the canvassing board didn’t recount the three days of ballots they had requested, instead choosing another three days of early ballots. While it added to West’s vote count and narrowed the gap, it wasn’t enough to trigger an automatic recount. West’s campaign is vowing further legal action.

Also, Allen West said this on his Facebook yesterday:

Today is Veteran’s Day and I am spending the day at several events with those few who have always answered our Nation’s call. They are the guardians of our liberties and freedoms.

However, on this day I am deeply troubled by the voting procedure issues emanating from St Lucie County. It is unconscionable to me to witness what is transpiring before our eyes.

This is not about who gets a congressional seat, because it belongs to the people. This is about preserving the integrity of the voting process and the fundamental right to free and honest elections, because it is for that which I, and all veterans, have risked our lives.
