Allen West seeks injunction to count paper ballots

In a district that leans Republican by 2 percentage points, Jupiter Democrat Patrick Murphy should thank St. Lucie and Palm Beach counties' voters for helping him knock off U.S. Rep. Allen West. Only consistently red Martin County performed up to its billing for West. By 6 a.m., with 100 percent of precincts reporting according to Politico.com, a winner still had not been officially declared. Murphy garnered 160,328 votes to West's 157,872. That's a difference of 2,456. Percentage-wise, that's 50.4 percent to 49.6 percent. But West, who stormed into Congress on the 2010 Tea Party wave, hasn't conceded the race yet. Wednesday afternoon West filed a motion for injunctive relief to 'count paper ballots (in Palm Beach County) and to impound voting machines." (more at link)
