Tea Party darling Rep. Allen West  concedes to Patrick Murphy after acting as though he was entitled to the seat. It was abundantly clear on Election night, November 6, 2012, that he had lost, but no, like the bully that he is, he demanded a recount.

“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,” West said in a statement to POLITICO. “While many questions remain unanswered, today I am announcing that I will take no further action to contest the outcome of this election.”

West congratulated Murphy, saying, “I pray he will serve his constituents with honor and integrity, and put the interests of our nation before his own.”

All I can say is, good riddance to a horrible lawmaker. There are more like him sitting in Congress who deserve to be voted out of office.
