The internet. Things change so fast. Alan West is now facing allegations of sexual assault that are much more serious than the charge laid by Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Gotnews.com reports that they can
“independently confirm that conservative icon Allen West sexually harassed two different women at Pajamas Media using more than a dozen sources. West, who was fired from Pajamas Media, grabbed the breast of then 24-year-old, Michelle Fields in front of an elevator while the two of them were colleagues. Fields declined to be interviewed on record but three different sources at PJ Media confirmed this story.
According to sources at PJ Media and some who have since left–the organization is apparently shutting down–West also undressed himself in front of communications professional Sarah Culvahouse Mills. There are other women who Gotnews.com has tracked down … He propositioned a conservative columnist. He grabbed a former communications staffer in an elevator and tried to kiss her, an incident that brought her to tears and led her to leaving politics entirely.”
Disappointing news indeed. This blog has been fulsome in its past praise of Alan West and it is sad to see him reduced to a Republican version of Bill Clinton. (although with a fair way to go to catch up to Bill)
