What Allen West, Dems have in common: There's $ in Wasserman Schultz spat

West's potential challengers, Patrick Murphy and Lois Frankel, used the kerfuffle for a fundraising pitch earlier in the day, along with abortion-rights group Emily's List. (New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand used it to launch a protect Medicare/Social Security petition).
