Excerpted from THE BLAZE:
Former Rep. Allen West said Thursday there were some suspicious results in the November race that lost him his seat in Congress.
“I tell you what, you gotta explain to me how you can have a 4,000-vote change at 1 o’clock in the morning,” the Florida Republican and Tea Party favorite told TheBlaze at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference.
St. Lucie County, Fla. election supervisors acknowledged “mistakes were made” in tabulating the votes for West and declared winner Patrick Murphy (D).
True the Vote, a Houston-based anti-voter fraud watchdog, filed suit last month demanding all election and recount records in the contest between West and Murphy.
“I am glad that the American people have stood up because what we wanted to expose was a lack of integrity in the electoral process, and if we don’t have integrity in our electoral process we don’t have the consent of the governed and that’s the good thing about what True the Vote has done,” West told TheBlaze.
West added to hints he made to TheBlaze earlier Wednesday about a possible return to the political stage, saying he would leave any decision in God’s hands.
“That’s up to God. I’ll do whatever he tells me to do,” West said.
