BuzzFeed: Allen West out at PJ Media amid "Jewish American princess" controversy

Former Broward U.S. Rep. Allen West, who lost last year's congressional race to Patrick Murphy in part due to his loose-cannon style, is leaving the conservative Pajamas Media site after allegedly calling a female staffer a “Jewish American princess,” BuzzFeed reported.

From BuzzFeed:

“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, 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.”
