Allen West tells us how he really feels

There is no love lost between Rep-elect Allen West, R-Fla., and the man he defeated last week, Rep. Ron Klein, D-Fla. After their slash-and-burn campaign, in which Klein publicized West’s Social Security number and accused him of belonging to a biker gang, it’s not hard to see why there are hard feelings.

“I really have nothing good to say about Congressman Ron Klein. I think he’s a terrible person…No respect for this guy.”

West also repeated his plans to join the Congressional Black Caucus.
