Romney Spokesman Behind Plan to Redistrict Allen West out of Office

One of the tea party's most effective and popular leaders is Allen West , a Republican black Congressman from Florida. Last night he rocked the house at the Lincoln dinner in Palm Beach where Newt Gingrich was the headline speaker.

Today we learn from Legal Insurrection that the effort to force him out of office through redistricting is being spearheaded by Romney's Florida spokesman:

The establishment is fighting back, alright.

This has not received a lot of national attention, but the Republican legislature in Florida is about to push through a plan which puts Allen West at serious risk, and the person leading the effort is one of Mitt Romney’s spokesmen [Will Weatherford]

(Disclosure, I have supported West both times he ran for office.)
