UPDATE 3:40 p.m.:
Angela Graham-West did call to explain why she felt harassed. She indicated that students had come to her work office uninvited and also sent messages to her office calling for her firing.
A post with her explanation will be posted shortly.
Here's her side of the story
. Original post: A
round noon today, former U.S. representative Allen West posted a message on his Facebook page that sounded like a threat to students at Florida Atlantic University -- even though he wrote, "This is not a threat, it is a promise."
West's wife, Angela Graham-West,
sits on the FAU Board of Trustees and is also a financial advisor at the Fort Lauderdale office of Raymond James & Associates.
West's post did not specifically say what prompted him to write the message, which had 16,000 "likes" around 2 p.m.
His wife was reached at work and, sounding flustered, promised to call right back, but did not after about 30 minutes.
Attempts to reach West through the Allen West Guardian Fund
and Twitter have so far been unsuccessful.
Here it the text of West's post: More »
