Allen West Blows Up In Email to Debbie Wasserman Schultz
Matt | On 21, Jul 2011
I thought that one post this week was going to be enough about Rep. Allen West (R-FL) and the comments that come out of his ass. I guess not, though…
The debt ceiling fight is bringing out the partisan politics in Washington, D.C. But, something is particularly in the water with representatives from Florida these days.
On Tuesday, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a Democrat who is also from Florida, spoke from the House floor about how the Cut, Cap, and Balance Act of 2011 was misguided. She also indirectly called out West and his support for the bill, even though it would hurt thousands of seniors in their South Florida district.
(Sidenote: The Cut, Cap, and Balance Act of 2011 is the House Republicans incorrect “answer” to the debt ceiling fight. It basically slashes money out of programs such as Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security in order to give room to the debt ceiling. But, the plan doesn’t raise taxes on the rich or make them contribute).
West was not on the House floor to hear Wasserman Schultz’s comments, but he got word of how she called him out.
From there, it was ON for Rep. West!
He went back to his office and types up one of the most unprofessional and kiddy emails to Rep. Wasserman Schultz I have ever seen. Is this dude serious?!
Read for yourself, per a posting I found on Politico:

Subject: Unprofessional and Inappropriate Sophomoric Behavior from Wasserman-Schultz
Look, Debbie, I understand that after I departed the House floor you directed your floor speech comments directly towards me. Let me make myself perfectly clear, you want a personal fight, I am happy to oblige. You are the most vile, unprofessional ,and despicable member of the US House of Representatives. If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up. Focus on your own congressional district!
I am bringing your actions today to our Majority Leader and Majority Whip and from this time forward, understand that I shall defend myself forthright against your heinous characterless behavior……which dates back to the disgusting protest you ordered at my campaign hqs, October 2010 in Deerfield Beach.
You have proven repeatedly that you are not a Lady, therefore, shall not be afforded due respect from me!
Steadfast and Loyal
Congressman Allen B West (R-FL)
All I can say is THE GATE IS WIDE OPEN at this point! What do you think?
