FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: CONGRESSMAN ALLEN WEST STATEMENT ON ELECTION RESULTS

Stuart, FL – Today Congressman Allen West released the following statement ending the race for Florida’s 18th District:

“For two weeks since Election Day, we have been working to ensure every vote is counted accurately and fairly.  We have made progress towards that goal, thanks to the dedication of our supporters and their unrelenting efforts to protect the integrity of the democratic process.  While many questions remain unanswered, today I am announcing that I will take no further action to contest the outcome of this election.

While there are certainly still inaccuracies in the results, and the actions of the St. Lucie County and Palm Beach County Supervisors of Elections rightly raise questions in my mind and for many voters, after much analysis and this past weekend’s recount in St. Lucie County, our legal team does not believe there are enough over-counted, undercounted or fraudulent votes to change the outcome of the election. 

While a contest of the election results might have changed the vote totals, we do not have evidence that the outcome would change.  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.

Serving the people in the House of Representatives has been among the highest honors of my life, but this seat does not belong to me, or for that matter, to any individual.  It belongs to the people. 

I want to congratulate my opponent, Patrick Murphy, as the new Congressman from the 18th Congressional District. I pray he will serve his constituents with honor and integrity, and put the interests of our nation before his own.

I must thank my wife Angela, and my daughters Aubrey and Austen for their support, patience, understanding and most of all, love. These are three of the toughest women I know. They have sent me off to defend our nation overseas at war, and to Capitol Hill to serve our nation in the House of Representatives. They have all handled the challenges of these last few months, and the last many years, with amazing grace. I know they will be by my side for whatever is our next chapter.

I want to thank my congressional and campaign staff for their service, and most importantly, I want to thank all of our tremendous supporters who provided their time and money to power our campaign. I am humbled by the dedication and perseverance of our supporters, and their commitment to a free and prosperous America.  I cannot thank them enough for all they have done for our campaign, but most importantly, what they have done, and will continue to do for our country.  None of us should let the outcome discourage us. We should only redouble our resolve. 

Above all, I want to thank God for his blessings, and for blessing me with the opportunity to serve.

Only God knows what is in store for each of us. I have dedicated my life to serving this nation, and the results of this election will not change my purpose. Just as I did in the deserts of Iraq and Afghanistan, just as I did on Capitol Hill, I will continue to fight for our Republic. 

Our nation will not overcome our challenges overnight, and the road ahead for each one of us will not be easy. But this nation would never have become that shining beacon of light if our founders had chosen the easy path 236 years ago.  We all must proudly continue their legacy.

For the protection and preservation of our life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, I shall remain steadfast and loyal.  God bless you and God bless these United States of America.”

CONGRESSMAN ALLEN WEST STATEMENT ON STATUS OF RACE

Stuart, FL – Congressman Allen West released the following statement regarding the election results certified today by the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections:

“Since Election Day we have been working for a fair and accurate accounting of the election outcome in which voters can put their full trust.  We will review the results of today’s recount and the other available data to determine how to proceed.  I have been humbled by the support we have received and the hard work of so many to ensure the integrity of this process.

We look forward to the report which will be issued by the Secretary of State’s auditors this coming week which we hope will shed light on some of the outstanding issues.”

Patriots Join Forces to Stand Up For The Man Who Won’t Concede to Corruption – Allen West

 

UNEDITED REPORT GIVEN TO BREITBART.COM 

Allen West Republic, who is NOT an “Official” part of the “Allen West for Congress” campaign, has and is coordinating it’s efforts with the citizens of South Florida and the entire nation in an effort to insure that EVERY VOTE in St. Lucie County is properly counted.

Spokesperson for the group, John Swetland said: “We do not understand how Patrick Murphy, a Certified Public Accountant, would not want to see the same outcome: A fair election, where the man with the most votes wins, NOT the man who was fortunate enough to have the mistakes of the SOE go his way”.

Allen West Republic has successfully utilized the people within it’s Facebook Group and Fan pages to gather and coordinate people from the FL-18 district area and surrounding areas. Local mobilization was led by a dynamic husband/wife team of Gary & Melinda Galiano, along with others who have been steadfast to Congressman West’s efforts for over 2 years. People have come en-mass, either showing up to demonstrate, bring food, or witness the recounts. Mark Bonner, creator of the Breitbart-One Voice Silenced, Millions Awakened” and their 41K members were vital to sharing our message and gathering some of their members who live in the St Lucie area and across south Florida.

Tanya Grimsley, the backbone of the groups social networking efforts, recapped yesterdays events: “The decision was made by the court to stop Allen West from preempting the Board. Judge Vaughn did not feel that with the evidence presented by West that he could intervene and force a recount. So, Murphy’s attorney, SOE’s attorney and the attorney for the Canvassing board made their main point that the Judge would supersede the law if the judge ordered Board to do a recount and they won. The Canvassing Board met at 4 PM yesterday and after a very long wait and delay and letting the people actually speak they then decided on their own 2-1 vote to do the recount. NOW Murphy’s attorneys want an injunction to stop the recount. ASKING that same judge to intervene.”

Statement from the Official West Campaign:

PATRICK MURPHY ATTEMPTS TO SUPPRESS VOTE IN ST. LUCIE COUNTY

Stuart, FL – West for Congress campaign manager Tim Edson released the following statement regarding Patrick Murphy’s lawyers’ attempt to get the 19th Circuit Court Judge to disallow the retabulation of early votes agreed to by the St. Lucie County Canvassing Board:

“In a last-ditch effort to suppress the vote, Murphy’s lawyers submitted sloppy and incomplete papers to the Court this morning to try to strong-arm the judge into preventing today’s retabulation already underway. The Murphy team’s motion is procedural and substantively lacking. With every action attempted, Murphy demonstrates a complete lack of respect and utter disregard for the voters of St. Lucie County.

Murphy’s efforts bring to mind the dark times in our nation’s history when politicians tried to manipulate the law to suppress the votes, and we are appalled by Murphy’s apparent contempt for the voting rights of citizens to have their ballots accurately and fairly tabulated.

Murphy knows there are votes that have not been counted, but he’s taking legal action to ensure the results are certified anyway. Perhaps the Justice Department should investigate Murphy’s attempt to steal himself a seat in Congress at the expense of the voters in St. Lucie County.”

Swetland when asked about the missing ballots had this to say: “Well we do not know WHY they went missing, we can only assume. Last night they found 304 more missing ballots…that is in addition to all the other errors throughout the week, but of that I do not have an accurate number that I’d be comfortable quoting.”

©2012 American Phoeniix Foundation EXCLUSIVEhttp://clashdaily.com/ The progressive left has made no secret of their hatred for Congressman Allen West. It will be months until we fully understand the national coordination and vast resources that were brought to Florida in an attempt to defeat him at all costs. One group that shifted resources to his district is Fieldworks.

Fieldworks is a progressive campaign organization that has secured many of ACORN’s old contracts. ACORN went bankrupt after Hannah Giles’s child prostitution expose.

Most notably Fieldworks has extensive Voter Registration and “Get Out The Vote” contracts with almost every major progressive left organization in America.

Here is an exclusive excerpt of raw footage from American Phoenix Foundation’s investigation into some of Fieldworks activities across the country. A full investigation is forthcoming.
