West says Bachmann made ‘incredible faux pas’ on Everglades drillingby George Bennett | August 30th, 2011
PALM BEACH GARDENS — U.S. Rep. Allen West told a town hall audience today that Republican presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann made “an incredible faux pas” when she said she is open to allowing drilling for oil and natural gas in the Everglades if it can be done safely.
“When I see her next week, I’ll straighten her out about that,” West said of the Minnesota congresswoman.
West is a member of the House Tea Party Caucus, which Bachmann chairs.
