That would be the same Allen West who, when he was elected to his one congressional term in 2010, announced that his chief of staff would be Joyce Kaufman. Kaufman was a right-wing talk radio host who a few months earlier had said at a political rally:

... I don't care how this gets painted by the mainstream media, I don't care if this shows up on YouTube, because I am convinced that the most important thing the Founding Fathers did to ensure me my First Amendment rights was they gave me a Second Amendment.

And if ballots don't work, bullets will.

(Go to 5:58 in the video below.)

After this and other statements got negative media attention, Kaufman turned down the job.

And then, of course, there's West himself, who told the audience at a rally in 2010 just what kind of campaign would result in victory against incumbent Ron Klein:

"Let me tell you what you've got to do," said West, a retired lieutenant colonel. "You've got to make the fellow scared to come out of his house. That's the only way that you're going to win. That's the only way you're going to get these people's attention."

Yeah, that's the guy you want on TV discussing the evils of "mobocracy."
