Some of the emails I’ve received lately make the Tea Party look like the world’s largest collection of uneducated trash.
From someone named Jamie Williams:
To whomever you are… I find it disgusting that you would publish Lt Col. West’s address and pictures of his home on you little gay scandal thing… I can only imagine what a bitter sad little skumbag you are to do this and put people in harms way, there are a lot of freaks in this world, some of the write gossip columns, some are president or work for him and some are moronic inbisils who read shit like the crap you dribble out…
You say you are a “journalist” I don’t care where you got you degree YOU ARE NOT A JOURNALIST, they have ethics and you clearly do not.. Furthermore, I am glad I don’t live in FL because if people there rely on people like you to report the news to them and the listen to the crap you put in your gossip column, it’s no wonder the get a reputation for being backwoods……I don’t really think Floridians are stupid though, but you look like you probably don’t cater the the actual Floridians anyway, you look like the cuban/latino queer type to me! Is that your target audience? It is obvious that you won’t “develop” a conscience anytime soon, so just let me say to you, I HOPE GOD REMEMBERS YOUR ADDRESS AND WHAT YOUR HOUSE LOOKS LIKE NEXT TIME A HURRICANE WHIPS THROUGH FL!!!!
On Jamie’s behalf, please excuse the spelling mistakes, the inaccuracies, the racial and sexual slurs and the usage of God’s name in vain.
Then this one came from someone named Carol Wall:
What a low life coward you must be to publish the home address of ANYONE, let alone a family whose dad you hate. Wonder what it must be like to be a Grade C wantabe journalist who pulls dirty tricks like this trying to get noticed. Hope you do, you’ll fit right in with the national scum called the “media”. You should apply to NBC, you deserve each other.
You get the idea — and these are are the notes that were actually readable.
My crime was to publish Allen West‘s new address after his carpetbagging to the Treasure Coast for an easier campaign.
His rented PGA National house, by the way, is behind not just one but two guarded gates — and in this case, a congressman’s address is relevant. We do know, after all, President Barack Obama‘s address!
Never, ever do I receive more threatening or insulting letters or emails than when I write about West — and I know a thing or two about insulting.
It’s pretty clear that Allen West voters are not people with whom you’d sit down for a reasonable chat.
And since elected politicians are a reflection of their voters, we should wonder if Allen West has a place in Congress.
