Allen West’s New Ad Is Epic
Rep. Allen West’s latest campaign ad pits his record as an Army colonel against his opponent Patrick Murphy’s as someone who got thrown out of a bar for drunken fighting.
“February 16, 2003, Fort Hood, Texas: Lt. Col. Allen West had just received deployment orders, and prepares his men to go to war. That night, South Beach, Miami: Patrick Murphy is thrown out of a club for fighting, covered in alcohol, and unable to stand. Murphy then confronts and verbally assaults a police officer. Patrick Murphy was arrested and taken to jail. Two men, a country in crisis — you decide.”
