We're all aware just how slimy and disgusting Florida's Republican Representative Allen West is. The guy is ranks right up there with Michelle Bachmann on the sleaze-o-meter.
His challenger, Democrat Patrick Murphy, has been endorsed by National Stonewall Democrats and just about every other progressive group imaginable. He's the vice president of a company that specializes in cleaning up after environmental disasters; so he's a darling of environmental groups especially.
Murphy just released an attack ad on West that is probably the most pointed and factually direct one I've ever seen. It's not mean; it's just matter of fact. It doesn't insinuate; it just reads from the record. It's absolutely stunning in its simplicity and forthrightness.
Knowing all of these facts about West, how could anyone possibly vote for him? Even the Log Cabin Republicans haven't endorsed the guy and there's wavering on whether or not to endorse Romney - a candidate who wants to start a McCarthy-esque investigation into the LGBT community!
