Red Meat on the Menu

Local Republicans will be having red meat at the annual Lincoln Day Dinner next month.

Former Florida Congressman Allen West, a vociferous critic of President Obama, will be the featured speaker on March 15 at Rothchild’s. West, who was a lieutenant colonel, was forced to retire from the U.S. Army to avoid a court martial because of his harsh interrogation of an Iraqi.

He was elected as the first black Republican congressman from Florida in a hundred years but lost his seat after one term due to redistricting. He is also a commentator on Fox News.
