If you’re deemed as mentally imbalanced as Allen West (or Bachmann or Steve King or Louie Gohmert), you should be disqualified from running for Congress.
Allen West has clearly lost his campaign but he’s refusing to concede:
Conservative firebrand Rep. Allen B. West (R-Fla.) appears to have lost his reelection bid, with final vote totals in the state’s new 18th Congressional District showing him trailing by more than 2,000 votes.
With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Democrat Patrick Murphy leads West by 2,442 votes — 50.4 percent to 49.6 percent. That is outside the margin (0.5 percent) for a computer recount.
I’m totally serious about coming up with a way to keep psychotic people out of Congress.
