Rep. Allen West “I am honored to have you stand with me”

Dear Friends,

Today my opponent, behind in the polls and desperate, launched a false tv ad attempting to smear my military record. I stand by the actions I took to protect the lives of my men in Iraq in 2003. As I have said before, if it’s about the lives of my men and their safety, I’d go through Hell with a gasoline can. The truth is, I did not face a court martial. I paid a small fine for breaking rules in an effort to save the lives of my soldiers.

I have an honorable discharge certificate as a Lieutenant Colonel and I voluntarily submitted my retirement paperwork upon redeploying from Iraq…something that Patrick Murphy has never done. If put in that situation, it is obvious that Patrick Murphy would not risk his life or endanger his career for those he was entrusted to lead. What kind of man believes he can equate or somehow excuse his drunken brawling and a verbal assault on a police officer by attempting to smear a combat veteran who retired honorably after 22 years of service?

Please consider another generous contribution to help us fight these cowardly attacks. Left-wing Super PACs are lining up to try to defeat us, but we will win this fight! As always, I am honored to have you stand with me.

Steadfast and Loyal,

LTC (R) Allen B. West
Member of Congress

  1. I know I have said this before, but it is worth repeating. We have almost missed the boat so to speak. We have all heard the speeches on job creation, debt, budget, foreign affairs, etc. and they are all very important when you are selecting a President. But, there is one thing much more important. All this Country has ever needed was a good man or woman. Think about it – could not be corrupted, honest, forthright with integrity, humility, works well with others and easily gains their respect, understanding and generous, bows before no man, and a man or woman of action. We gave strayed so far from what is right and what is wrong, that a man like Obama can just walk in and start writing up executive orders and handing out money that was not earned.

    I have followed some of this Senator Allen’s path, and Florida, you could do no better. He is not just a “another politician.” This is a good man that has served his Country, and his done the right thing – even if a rule was not appropriate for a specific situation. What you are seeing is leadership – rare in Congress and the White House. This Country needs him and the State needs him. He may sound soft spoken, but I am betting that he is also carrying a bid stick. And, best yet, he tells the truth – that is extremely rare in Washington. They are fighting to keep him out and that is why you all got to get him in. It is truly a good sign for Washington not to like you.
