Broward GOP: Allen West Needs "More Favorable Treatment" in Redistricting

Allen-West-flag.jpg
Rep. Allen West, who's apparently "in danger" of losing his congressional seat.
The Broward GOP has looked at the proposed congressional redistricting map for the state and has come to a realization -- Broward isn't going to have a Republican representative if that map becomes a reality.

That leads to the "call to action" from Colleen Stolberg, the vice chair of the Broward Republican Executive Committee, asking GOP devotees to contact a handful of people every day until West "receives more favorable treatment" in the redistricting process.

It's been rumored that West has been "district shopping" ever since the proposed map showed he'd get some extra lefties in his district, but now the situation seems a bit more dire with the frantic message from the Broward GOP.

Among the people Stolberg's asking supporters to contact "every day" are Senate Redistricting Chairman Don Gaetz, House Redistricting Chairman Will Weatherford, Gov. Rick Scott, Republican Party of Florida Executive Director Mike Grissom, and Senate President Mike Haridopolos.

Read the letter from Stolberg below about West being "in danger" (all emphasis is hers):

Congressman Allen West is in danger under the proposed redistricting maps and the Democrats are cheering! Show your displeasure by calling and emailing the people listed below not once but every day until this proposed district map has been changed. After working so hard to get Congressman West elected, we cannot stand idly by and let the Democrats win in 2012. As this proposed district map stands it's likely that Broward will not have any Republican Congressional representation in Congress.
 
We must Save Congressman West! Call, email and contact everyone listed below until Congressman West receives more favorable treatment in this redistricting process. Make your voice heard! FORWARD THIS MESSAGE TO ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS!
 
This is a matter of urgency!
The redistricting map may be voted on in the first week of session. There is no time to delay.  Make your calls, emails, tweets or letters every day!
 
Colleen Stolberg
Broward Republican Executive Committee Vice-Chair

How is this practice even legal?  You dont like your constituents so you redraw who gets to vote for you in order to shove yourself down their throats?  This is insane and the real voter fraud.  Too bad no one seems to notice this.

The loss of his House seat should be a huge benefit to West. He will be elevated to Martyrdom in the Tea Party.  West will be offered a huge contract by Faux News and be able to enjoy the good life. He will have professional speechwriters and travel across the country giving paid speeches. He can become extremely wealthy and perhaps the heir to the Limbaugh throne. Imagine Allen behind the goldern microphone. Doesn't that warm your heart?  Allen West can be the true example of American Exceptionalism.

Please help Congressman Allen West gerrymander his district by showing public support to further deform his district against the standards mandated by voters overwhelmingly in the last election. So what if his district spans multiple counties, dissects various cities, and has gaping holes in the middle of it. West never plays by the rules and he does not have to now either.  We must rise up and crush this democratic insurgency in America that demands free and fair elections so we can place military leaders in positions of strength to rule over us with an iron fist and a forked tongue.

Even though West is an asshole to the Nth degree anybody that the democrats put up for Congress will more than likely not be any better, Wasserman Shultz for example is just as bad as West.

No problem, just draw him a district that contains only Calvary Chapel members and retired military.

You mean to exclude integrity, faith, and honor? No surprise coming from a clearly entitled liberal such as yourself that probably takes everything for granted.

What exactly is West's "faith"?

 Does he follow the teachings of Jesus Christ and that you should treat your neighbor the same as you would like to be treated?

Or is West more along the lines of the Crusaders and that you should kill anybody that refuses to believe what he believes?
