ST. LUCIE COUNTY A St. Lucie County Circuit Court judge has scheduled a hearing at 1 p.m. Friday for U.S. Rep. Allen West's latest St. Lucie challenge for an election recount.
By noon, about 50 Allen West supporters have showed up outside the St. Lucie County Courthouse and were chanting scathing criticisms of county Supervisor of Elections Gertrude Walker.
The West crowd is parading around 2nd Street with signs that say, "Count the votes," "recount now!", "don't believe the liberal media," and "what are you hiding Gertrude Walker?"
Their chants range from "Gerty is corrupt, Gerty must go," to "what do we want? Recount. When do we want it? Now."
West, who narrowly lost his District 18 bid to Democrat Patrick Murphy in unofficial results, filed a lawsuit Tuesday evening demanding the canvassing board recount all early votes before certifying the results. An amendment to the lawsuit was filed Friday morning that requests all absentee votes be recounted as well.

Well no sense wasting a good recess. Time for Murphy to hit a bar.
The silence of the GOP is deafening....
Any guesses on what the Court is going to do?
The Left never apologizes.
The Left never backs down.
Quite a few, I would imagine.
JUDGE BACK LIVE NOW...
Allen West Denied
Sad. Why am I not surprised?
Damn, just tuned in to hear the judges final words . . .not in his power to grant the plaintiffs request under these circumstances. Yet another court plays the ‘lack of standing’ card. It appears the the court system stacked the deck with endless joker cards to trump justice. Disgusting.
I could just scream.
One hand of government covering for another one.
Governor West sounds good....
Speaker of the House. :)
He could teach Govs Krispy and Jindal a few things.
Does he have any other recourse now? I hate dems. Hate them.
