    Democrats just working hard to keep blacks on their plantations. They don't want some uppity black showing that it's possible to escape.

    Any enlisted man would serve a minimum of ten years for what he did. Apparently being a field grade officer gets you into congress and the ire of the tea party.

    Strange how all of that works out.

    West won his current job because his district was heavily gerrymandered by the Republicans. That will be changing and he will be lucky to see a second term.

    Guss, West was elected for his district because the incumbent Ron Klein was an idiot and everyone was tired of him. I live in the district.

    Here's what West's Republican gerrymandered district looked like.

    Due to a state-wide citizen uprising, we are re-districting and West has seen the handwriting on the wall. He has bailed out on District 22. He will attempt to start over in a more rural district with Republican leanings.
