In the wake of a judge’s denial of Congressman Allen West’s request for an injunction against Palm Beach County’s supervisor of elections to impound ballots and voting machines, several independent political action committees and organizations are shamelessly exploiting West’s current post-election predicament by establishing fundraising campaigns to “Save Allen West.”
Just what do these groups think they will accomplish with the funds they raise- purchase billboards and television spots, as if those would somehow influence ballot counters and the outcome? Don’t be so credulous.
At this point, Allen West does not need to be “saved,” especially by any organization whose real goal is to raise money from West supporters to fill its own coffers. As it stands, the race is in the hands of the Supervisor of Elections of Palm Beach and St.Lucie counties in Florida as they continue to count ballots.
The West campaign itself hasn’t asked for donations, there’s simply no reason to- in the wake of a terrible election loss, it’s pathetic how these groups want to exploit the gullibility of some into thinking that the funds raised will somehow influence the outcome of a recount which has yet to be automatically triggered.
Here’s one of the fundraising solicitations-
Conservative hero Allen West is in the midst of a brutal recount. His entire career hangs in the balance.
So now they are trying to STEAL this election!
Please help Revive America stand up to defend Colonel Allen West right now! Please make an URGENT contribution of $35, $50, $75, $100, $200 or whatever you can today.
This really is an epic battle between a conservative hero and the entire liberal establishment.
And Allen West is getting very little help from the Republican Party. He needs grassroots conservatives to stand up today!
Colonel West is a fighter. The liberals hoped he would just give up when his leftist opponent pulled ahead by a small margin.
However, Allen West isn’t a typical Republican who gives in to the left at the first sign of trouble.
Instead of conceding this race he has demanded a recount. His campaign has found “disturbing irregularities” in St. Lucie County!
West’s campaign reported this the day after the election:
“There are still tens of thousands of absentee ballots to be counted in Palm Beach County and potential provisional ballots across the district. Late last night Congressman West maintained a district wide lead of nearly 2000 votes until the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections“recounted” thousands of early ballots. Following that “recount” Congressman West trailed by 2,400 votes. Given the hostility and demonstrated incompetence of the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections, we believe it is critical that a full hand recount of the ballots take place in St. Lucie County.”
Allen West will not be thrown out of Congress without a fight! He will not be cheated out of his Congressional seat!
But he needs ordinary Americans like you to stand with him in this battle.
Please make the very most generous contribution you can to help keep Allen West in Congress. And please do it now.
I know you’re exhausted and disgusted with politics right now. You probably want to put this entire nightmare election behind you.
However, Allen West is still fighting. And I think we should too.
That’s why Revive America is going to do everything in our power to help this brave man.
Please donate what you can. The liberal media is pounding Allen West day and night. They are trying to get him to give up on this recount and allow the liberal Democrats to steal his seat.
We must support Allen West.
Yours for America,
Founder & Chief Strategist
