For Allen West, the fat lady has sung!
The controversial GOP Congressman who was a Tea Party fave, finally conceded overnight to Democrat Patrick Murphy.
However, it took West – a retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel – two whole weeks after the election and another vote count for West to come to his senses and realize it was over, reports Jose Lambiet’s Gossip Extra.
He now believes the 1,904-vote difference could not be overcome, even if a full hand recount were ordered.
The race stood out as one of Florida’s nastiest in memory. West was haunted by allegations of torture on the front in the Iraq War and misogyny. And political novice Murphy watched his mug shot from a drunken arrest flash on the TV screens in West’s ads.
