Former Congressman Allen West is leaving his job at Pajamas Media after an altercation with a female staffer in which he allegedly called her a Jewish American princess, BuzzFeed learned on Thursday.
In order to focus on political interests, Allen West will transition from his full-time role as director of programming for Next Generation.TV to a twice-a-month contributor of written commentary on PJMedia.com, effective October 1, 2013, PJ Media financier Aubrey Chernick wrote to staff in an email from September 16. I wanted our staff and consultants to have this information first. However, PJ Media is not announcing this publicly for several weeks, so please do not share this news with anyone outside of the company until you see our public announcement.
In a message to staff, West wrote: Shortly, I will be giving up my position as director of programming at Next Generation.TV to get back on the front lines to expand the message of constitutional conservatism across our country.
Two sources familiar with what happened told BuzzFeed that West had gotten into an argument with a female employee and called her a Jewish American princess while telling her to shut up.
Reached by phone, West told BuzzFeed he was leaving his job voluntarily, though one source familiar with the situation told BuzzFeed he had been fired. He did not deny that an exchange with the employee had occurred, but said it hadnt led to his leaving the company.
No I didnt get fired, West said. Im leaving to pursue political aspirations. Thats it. Therell be a statement that comes out and its effective in October.
Asked specifically whether he referred to the employee as a Jewish American princess, West said simply, There was an exchange, thats all.

Or my Polish jokes.
Or my Chinese jokes.
Or my Mexican jokes.
I read an account by a Nisei woman who had been in a camp as a girl in Idaho or somewhere. She was against it, you got the feeling, understandably. But the portrait she painted of many among the grandparents' generation was definitely non-assimilated and pro-Japanese-conquer-everybody-including-Yankee-dog. And of course there were young men who felt the same way. And young men who enlisted to fight for us and racked up medals for heroism. Tough situation. Charity conquers all.
I got a friend, happens to be Jewish, always telling me jokes when I go in.
Some are real groaners and others outright funny.
Just what I was thinking ... truth is the absolute defense.
Excellent! I’m stealing it.
My guess is that she’s a DNC plant that couldn’t let her inner liberal JAP go.

Would somebody take a vid of Debbie Blabbermouth & insert appropriate frog audio: “ribbit-ribbit-ribbit”?
Don't jump, we can get you help!
Sound about right... I agree.
That's all I needed to read, right there.
Trust-but-verify isn’t working here.
I like Col. West, but, I have no use for the distraction, not now, especially if it’s true and based on some Jew bashing.
Astounding to see a kool aide reaction here, on FR.

Warning; don’t click on if easily offended.
The other side practices the politics of personal destruction 24/7, so I understand that folks’ first reaction is to ‘circle the wagons’, but first reaction isn’t always the best reaction. So yeah, we really don’t need the distraction.
You make it sound as though he held a gun to her head, that’s what PC is equivalent to these days, how will the MSM reports this...LTC West made a racist remark to an innocent Jewish young lady, remember when he held a gun to an innocent Afghany terrorist and threaten to kill him...an in-depth report on this at 11.
Just wait until the MSM PC crowd gets wound up over this, weeks and months of reporting.
Jewish-American vs African-American
I frankly don’t care if he said it or not. I’m totally over the PCBS. We have far more important natters to settle. Even if he did say it, he didn’t create the “distraction.” Whoever went public with it did.
Allen West should move to Texas and run against Cornyn ;-)
He’d take back his house seat immediately in the midterms.
