Allen West Has a Twitter Impostor

Yesterday, Allen West tweeted to us, our sister paper Miami New Times, the Miami Herald, and floridaindependent.com.


He said: "I'm keeping an eye on you, bitches!"

OK, seriously it wasn't the real Allen West (although that would've been great blog fodder) but an impostor. It looks like there's a semi-new fake account called @CrazyAllenWest.

This isn't the first fake political Twitter account to pop up. Some other fun ones are @dickcheney and @georgebush. 

If you're looking for the man or woman behind the account, just head to their listed location: Crazytown.
