Allen West to oppo videographers: ‘Come up to the front…I want you to clearly hear what I have to say’by George Bennett | August 15th, 2010
Democratic U.S. Rep. Ron Klein’s campaign has launched a new YouTube channel featuring videos of Republican challenger Allen West. The Klein camp contends the videos will show the conservative West is too “radical” and “extreme” for the swing-voter sensibilities of Palm Beach-Broward congressional District 22.
West says he has nothing to hide. In fact, in the above video, taped March 8 and posted by Klein’s campaign last week, here’s what West says around the 6:15 mark:
“Now I don’t know if we got some Ron Klein supporters here that are trying to tape me or if we have some people that are going to try and bring something against me later on. If so, please come up to the front. Because I want you to clearly hear what I have to say. I am not afraid of saying it…”
Read about it in this week’s Politics column.
Here, by the way, is the double-platinum YouTube video of West that has helped him raise nearly $3.5 million since last October while Klein has raised just under $1.5 million during the same period.
