For former House Reps, especially for ones with as recognizable a brand as Allen West, life post-Congress should be a pretty cush gig. Someone out there will pay to hear you talk ($$), or to talk to a TV camera ($$$), or even to talk to your old pals on the Hill in the interest of some earth-maiming industrial concern ($$$$$$). Opportunity is everywhere.
But Ol' Allen has different ideas. He wants you
to pay him
to talk right back to you
. West recently announced he will soon be hosting a online TV show called "Next Generation." The spots will be produced by PJ Media.
"Through Internet TV, social media, live events, outreach programs and
newsletters, NextGeneration.TV will be a rallying place where
grandparents, parents, and children can come to learn about the
challenges facing our nation and to offer possible solutions for a
prosperous future," West wrote in a statement on the company's web site
. He'll share the platform with co-host Michelle Fields.
Oh, you also have to pay to play
