Allen West Violates Federal Law During Weekend Diving Trip
|Congressman Allen West, desecrating the American flag.|
During his diving session Sunday, Lt. Col. West was photographed holding an American flag underwater, on top of an artificial reef -- which would be a violation of the United States Code.
Let us flip to Title 4, Chapter 1, Section 8, Subsection B of the United States Code:
(b) The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise.
That's from Chapter 1 of the United States Code, also known as the United States Flag Code.
Judging from the existence of pictures of West holding a flag under water, that would seem to qualify as a violation of code.
The Flag Code constitutes federal law, although there is no penalty for breaking this law.
We'll let you off with a warning, West.
But let it be known that you're joining the ranks of at least one other politician by violating the code:
