The article reports:
The American Sunrise PAC is responsible for the video. The group was incidentally founded by the father of Congressman West’s general election opponent, Democrat Patrick Murphy, who has funneled $250,000 into the PAC.
UPDATE: The group responsible for the West advertisement has disabled all comments and ratings on their video page. The immense distaste for the ad may have pressured this move. As Blaze reporter Jason Howerton noted: The video on YouTube currently has more than 12,000 views, with 252 “dislikes” and just 16 “likes.” The move is ironic since the group responsible for the ad claims to work for “thoughtful”, “more open”, “brighter future” in politics.
What is the problem with the ad? It shows a caricature of Allen West wearing boxing gloves punching an old woman, a young lady and seemingly a family with children. He is then shown taking money from the family and laughing like a gremlin.
The only way to stop this sort of foolishness is to render it ineffective. If you live in Florida, please vote for Allen West.
