Allen West: "Look I'm Not Into Name-Calling, All That Kind of Stuff"


That acronym could be a common reaction to Rep. Allen West's comment to the Sun-Sentinel editorial board on Wednesday in response to a question about whether Mitt Romney's a flip-flopper.

"No," West replied. "Look I'm not into name-calling, all that kind of stuff."

Let's play Politifact here for a second and fact-check the claim that West isn't "into name-calling."

Yeah, we'd say he's "into name-calling" and "that kind of stuff."

We rate West's claim as being false.
