Allen West: Gossip Extra’s Full of Crap!

Official with U.S. Rep. Allen West‘s political campaign came out swinging about Gossip Extra‘s exclusive report on West’s letter to his wife in which he demanded that she be his “porn star.”

Campaign officials claim Gossip Extra is full of dog doo-doo — and that the letter is a figment of someone’s imagination.

While the campaign wouldn’t comment about the letter when Gossip Extra requested an interview last week, campaign spokeswoman Michele Hickford talked to the New York politicial website Politicker today.

Here’s an excerpt of her chat:

Politicker spoke to . . . Hickford, and she angrily declined to discuss the letter. “We’re not going to comment on this crap, it’s just a garbage story,” Ms. Hickford said. (Politicker) asked whether she debated the veracity of the letter and, though she didn’t directly deny its existence, she pointed to the fact Mr. Lambiet has not published a copy of the document.   “He hasn’t produced a letter, so, as of now, there’s no letter,” she said.

What Hickford failed to tell Politicker, however, is that Gossip Extra emailed a PDF file of the letter to Allen West For Congress campaign manager Tim Edson. I also read sex-soaked passages from it to West’s D.C. spokeswoman, former WPTV-Channel 5 reporter Angela Melvin, whose main comment was: “Where did you get this?”

Unless Edson decided not to show it to his boss or tell him about it, West is fully aware that the missive he wrote to his wife just days before a 2003 torture incident that cost his military career is in my possession.

Neither Edson no Melvin responded to more emails asking whether Hickford is consciously lying to the media, or whether she really didn’t know Edson received a copy.

What’s the big deal about the old letter?

While loving at times, the conservative Republican West’s letter to wife Angela, a highly-educated trustee of Florida Atlantic University, also includes description after description of sex acts he demanded from her.

In West’s words, once he returned stateside, some of the acts would be “non negotiable.”

Although Gossip Extra is withholding publication the handwritten letter because of the graphic nature of its content, I wrote about it because of the increasingly nasty context of the campaign for a coastal district that stretches from Palm Beach Gardens to Fort Pierce.

West’s opponent, Democrat Patrick Murphy, has hammered at what he claims is West’s sexism and an anti-woman political agenda, using TV ads that show a cartoon of West hitting women.

    “All’s fair in love and war,” Jose. And if those seeking elected office can’t stand the heat, then they should get out of the kitchen.

    Anyone running for even the lowliest of elected offices should be very clear in knowing that any and all aspects of their lives will come under scrutiny. It goes with the territory and if there are skeletons rattling around in politicos’ closets, they will envariably tumble out because there is always someone ready, willing and able to seek and expose those dirty little secrets.

    I believe character counts and so do a lot of other voters. No human is perfect, but if there are disturbing aspects to a candidate’s personality or moral code, then I think voters have the right to know.

    Print the letter. It’s not like this is the New York Times, you know! :-)

      Hmmm, “all’s fair in love and war” and “if those seeking elected office can’t stand the heat, then they should get out of the kitchen.” I wonder if you said the same thing about the Chicago street thug who is in the White House now.

      Obama’s racist, hatemongering preacher of 20 years was off limits. Obama’s close ties to murdering domestic terrorist Bill Ayers and his cop killing wife was off limits. Obama’s ties to communist Frank Marshall Davis was off limits. Obama’s ties to radical Islam and OPEC oil money was off limits.

      And yet, Lt Col West’s private emails are fair game? Unbelievable.

      Wow, just wow.

    GIVE it ALL to us Jose!! You know you have SOOOO much more on West. Adultry, illegal substance use, horrible back stabbing things he and his wife say behind the backs of those closet to them AND his view of women according to how he perceives GOD demands how women are to act (sexually) toward their ooooo so superior husbands. Also ask the poor churches who invited him to speak at their churches and who so lovingly gave him a gift of a bible that he threw away like dog doo doo.
